SOURCE: Thermal switch location

On a series 10, it's located behind the bulk head, behind the drum. On a series 11 they moved it to a bracket on the heater cone. Catriver.

SOURCE: where is the thermal fuse located?

In the back of the dryer. Look for the coiled heaters and follow the lead wires back to the fuse.

SOURCE: Is the Thermal Fuse for Maytag Performa gas dryer

Without a model# to be sure I will say yes. All thermal fuses that have the same rating and physical characteristics are interchangeable. Brand does not matter only rating ie; cutoff temperatures.

Why maytag bravos keeps blowing thermal-fuse


Lots of videos here about that problem.
maytag dryer thermal fuse replacement YouTube
Which thermal fuse. The one on the heater or the one on the lint filter housing? If it was the one on the heater did you replace the thermostat too.
Is the dryer vent blocked, has too many elbows, or too long or otherwise restricted, or is the dryer overloaded.

does the element come on at this point ?
I'm not sure if you tried this already or not, but i would unplug the unit and wait a min and plug it back in and see if it resets and then works again . you could have had a power surge .

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.

I have a Maytag Epic Z. The dryer turns on but with no heat


There are several things that can cause this. 1 st the thermal fuse(white plastic piece with 2 wires attached to it, then the igniter, is it glowing orange when you start the dryer, then the flame sensor located on the side of the burner assembly and finally the gas coils located on the gas valve close to the burner assembly. If the igniter is glowing orange and then going out without ignition change the gas coils, Hope this helps,

I have the Epic Z electric dryer and it lights up but will not run


Check for blown thermal fuse. It's about an inch long and is located just inside the rear of the dryer and is usually attached to or near the exhaust duct. It can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity means a blown thermal fuse. Be sure to disconnect power from machine before attempting any repair. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.
