My Maytag Dryer Model # LDE4914ACE had blown its interior light (glass blew off the base) so I replaced it. After plugging the dryer back in it does not work. House fuse is fine and dryer has power to all switches and dials.

Hi, well i would imagine that when the glass broke, the light most likely very briefly contacted the Earth, this has no doubt then damaged the power supply, and or main board(s) of the unit. Either that or a power surge, caused the bulb to explode? regardless, this, either is, or has, precipitated a fairly terminal event, that has caused the unit to stop working.
In any event, this is a strange symptom, and troubleshooting steps will have to be taken to isolate the exact cause, as there is no clear cut fault, other than what's explained and the fact it doesn't go.
Due to the nature of this I would honestly recommend that you have this unit looked at by a professional, simply contact a Maytag, local or head office and ask for a referral to a local authorised service center, ask them to call, and give you a "Quote" as to the costs to repair the machine. Then you can make a decision after you receive the information.


If you do wish to DIY, then to assist you, below is a website that will show you how to troubleshoot the issues, and below that is your service and repair manual.

I have a Kenmore Dryer, Model 96292110. It runs, but it does not heat the air. I have checked the circuit breakers. They are fine.


Hello,

If your Maytag dryer has mysteriously stopped producing heat, a blown thermal fuse may be the cause of your problem. In Whirlpool dryers,thermal fuses are safety switches that are designed to disrupt the flow of electricity to your dryer's heating mechanisms once the dryer reaches a predetermined maximum temperature, usually somewhere around 180 degrees F.

Thankfully, troubleshooting the thermal fuse in a Maytag dryer is easier than it sounds.

Instructions And Things You'll Needed.
  • Screwdriver,Towel,Electrical tape,Replacement thermal fuse, if necessary.
1 Clean out thelint screen in your Maytag clothes dryer. Lint buildup can cause your dryerto overheat, triggering the thermal fuse to disrupt power to your dryer'sheating mechanisms. Take the lint screen out of your Whirlpool dryer and washit in warm water. Dry the screen thoroughly before replacing it.

2 Look behindthe dryer to check its flexible exhaust hose for kinks or obstructions.Disconnect the exhaust hose from the back of your dryer and clean out any lintthat has built up.

3 Go outside andcheck your Maytag dryer's exhaust vent for obstructions. Lint buildup, birdnests or other obstructions in the outside exhaust vent can trigger yourdryer's thermal fuse.

4 Disconnectyour dryer from its power source before attempting to access its thermal fuse.

5 Access the thermal fuse in your Maytag dryer byremoving the back panel. Remove the screws that hold the back panel in placeand it should easily come free.

6 Look betweenthe dryer's blower housing and exhaust to locate its thermal fuse. The thermalfuse in a Whirlpool dryer looks like a white plastic strip that has two wiresconnected to it.

7 Bypass the thermal fuse in your Maytag dryer whileyou perform a quick diagnostic test. Use electrical tape to tape together thetwo wires connected to the thermal fuse. Reassemble your dryer and plug it backin. Set the dryer to a timed heated drying cycle and press "Start."If the dryer produces heat with its thermal fuse bypassed, it means the thermalfuse needs to be replaced.

8 Replace a blown thermal fuse in your Maytag dryer.Disconnect the power and remove the back panel. Remove the electrical tape thatyou used to perform the diagnostic test and disconnect the wires from thethermal fuse. Remove the screws that secure the thermal fuse to the dryer anddiscard the blown fuse. Attach the replacement thermal fuse by replacing andtightening the screws. Attach the wires to the new thermal fuse.

Thanks for using fixya.

Maytag mde5500ayw,,,, have interior light and display will light up, but unit will not start???


hello. begin by looking closely at the latch on the door. if it has lint in it clean it thoroughly, vacuum the area and see it it will start up.

if not read on:

If your dryer doesn't work at all, it could be because of problems with:

Power from the house
Door switch
Thermal fuse
Wiring
Power from the house Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? If you plug something else into the outlet, does it work? If not, check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.

Door switch If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch.

Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing.

If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse to put the dryer back into operation. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.)

Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks. In this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the wire is attached.

Hi, Was you able to locate the fuse?
It is located on the blower housing and it's white.

Please let me know if this helps at all or if I can assist you further.

Maytag dryer


Most likely the power board (which on this model sits at the bottom of the dryer) is damaged due to the water. The system starts but cannot engage the heaters and therefore shuts down as a safety precaution when the power board does not (can not) engage.

There is a fuse on this board that is probably blown but you really don't want to replace just the fuse. Because of the water damage the fuse blew because another component(s) is/are also bad. This is replaced as a unit and is easy to do once you have paid the exhorbitant price (in ours it was almost as much as two new machines from another vendor) for a new board.

Maytag dryer problem


Could be a loose blower wheel, loose motor mount, worn out rollers, or damage during moving. The only solution is to take to it apart and find the part that's not moving smoothly. If nothing is obviously wrong the motor may have chosen this moment for the motor beaerings to go out.

MAYTAG DRYER LDE4914ACE BELT CHANGE


The belt goes around the pully so that the pully tension takes the slack out of the belt. Just like the serpentine belt on your car.
