The air flow past the thermal fuse is too hot. The air flow cools the heater coil area. Check the air passages from the lint filter to the heator coil housing for lint balls blocking the flow and letting the area around the fuse get too hot.

Matag dryer not heating


Here is a link to maytag dryer repairs http://apcoappliancerepair.wordpress.com/?s=maytag+dryer . The most common problem is the thermal fuse. My question is. Does the heating element start to light. If not...... and you have changed the ignitor and thermal fuse. Then check the flame sensor to see if there is continuity threw it. Power to the gas coils and ignitor runs threw the flame sensor. CLICK HERE to see a flame sensor on a GE dryer. They are the same on most units but Maytag will be on the opposite side of burner chamber.

My thermal fuse has blown on my maytag dryer model#6800AWW. How do you release the cover to get to it


http://www.do-it-yourself-washing-machine-and-dryer-repair-help.com/thermal-fuse-Maytag-dryer.html Hello there, this will help you with disassembly.

Your dryer has two thermal fuses. One is located on the heater box (that contains the heater elements), and the other is on the blower wheel cover.
Right now I'm positing a link of a parts diagram for your dryer. On both links I'll tell you which number the thermal fuse is.

http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=47833&diagram_id=28471886#d28471886 Part number 10.

http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=47833&diagram_id=28471885#d28471885 Part number 11 on the heater box.

To test these fuses, you can buy an inexpensive continuity tester at lowes or home depot. They're really cheap if you get one that just tests for continuity. When you locate the thermal fuse, you will remove one of the wires and put both clamps or test leads on the fuse's terminals. You should have continuity. If it does, that means that electricity can flow through freely and the fuse is still okay. I would check both.

I hope that helps you out. I will be more than happy to help you if you need any further assistance.
My name is Mike, hope your dryer is up and running soon.

Congrats on doing the job yourself. :)

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 dryer pye2300azw shut off when drying the clothes i check breaker from house to dryer that's OK it won't turn on back


This dryer is fairly easy to repair.

The thermal fuse is probably blown. Look for air restrictions and a bad blower wheel to be the culprit. When that blower wheel starts slipping it causes the dryer to overheat.

Model RED4440sqO; will not run. Repaced both 30


Remove the rear panel on the blower housing there is a cycling thermostat (part number 3387134) with internal bias heater and a thermal fuse (part number 3392519). The latter is wired in series with the motor which will cause the motor or the dryer as a whole not to start or run when it has failed. Grab a volt-ohmmeter and set the scale to R X 1 then disconnect a wire from the thermal fuse and check its continuity. Replace the thermal fuse should it read open including the cycling thermostat.

Most likely the motor thermal overload has failed if there's power to the dryer and the thermal fuse replaced but the dryer still doesn't run.

Maytag Atlantis electric dryer Model


Check the following to address this issue.




1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses. An electric dryer uses two circuit breakers or fuses, and if only one of two is tripped or blown, the dryer might still run but not heat. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

2. Heating element
A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

The Dryer stopped and will not start again


Just had a similar problem with our Maytag Electric Dryer. The dryer shut off mid-cycle and wouldn't start again, but the timer kept running. We purchased a "Thermal fuse replacement kit" at a local appliance parts store for $38 and replaced the fuse ourselves. The dryer is running great! Here's a couple of website links that were helpful in figuring out out how to replace the fuse: http://www.partselect.com/repair.aspx?appliance=dryer&part=replace-thermal-fuse

Hope this helps!

My Maytag Performa electric dryer (model #PYE2300AZW) will not start. I went through the troubleshooting guide online, but did not help. Is there a built in fuse that can be checked?


thermostat common problem for this machine ( dryers in general) bad thermal fuse, a result of poor venting usually.. with a putty knife or a screw driver the main top can be "poped" open , theres a clip perhaps 3-4 inches in on either side just under main top and from panel assy, after releasing the clips the top can be flipped back to reveal the heater and fuse are. the thermal fuse is located on the right side of the heater box, and can be tested for continuity. no continuity means is blown and needs replacing. part number LA-1053( about 30 bucks). if the fuse checks out ok the n i would check the heater assy and then the thermostat also mounted right there. simple continuity check for all three, all three must have continuity.
