Replaced all parts for dryer because of no heat dryer runs drum turns had breaker and wiring going into dryer everything ok still no heat could wires be backwards going to replacement parts?


Electric dryers have as many as three thermal fuses. See if you might have missed one. One next to coils, one next to drum and one near the lint trap at air outlet. All three have different trip settings.

The high limit thermal switch on heater burns out.


There are two thermostats, a 'limit' or 'operating' thermostat which turns the heating element on and off, and a 'high limit' or 'safety' thermostat which oversees the 'operating' thermostat by opening and removing power to the heating element when the upper limit temperature is reached. Basically, the only difference between these two are the temperature ratings. The 'high limit' is higher than the 'operating' thermostat. The thermal fuse is the last resort protection.

First and foremost, you must know that every inch of your exhaust vent pipe is clean.

Usually, a bimetallic limit switch will degenerate in the direction of too low of a temperature range because as the parts wear out inside, the mechanical tolerance widens (the tiny rod that pushes the contacts together gets shorter).

The high limit thermostat is by the thermal fuse. The operating thermostat is in the blower housing.

Check the fan impeller for broken vanes and lint. The impeller is directly coupled to the motor and should not turn without the motor. The fan housing and ducting should be free of excess lint.

Good luck.

My dryer works for the first 10 min then goes cool


Sounds like a bad thermal limit switch which cuts off the heating element above a certain temperature. The switch could be malfunctioning, opening at too low and temperature and not closing after it cools down.

My dryer used to shut off before the clothes are dry - now it wont start at all


Ok, the light will not come on if the door pressure swicth is damaged and, the dryer will not start if this switch is damaged as well. replace the door pressure switch asap.

Ok, concerning the interuppted drying cycle due to high heat, this can be cuased by two issue. It coudl be a venalation issue. if the dryers vent duct and exuast hoses are clogged, thsi will cuased the element to reach unsafe tempreturs, in return, tripping the high limit thermostsat and shutting the dryer off in the middle of the load cycle.

Another problme spot woul dbe a fualty high limit thermaostae. Although this is highly unlikey, this coudl be your issue.

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.


Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.

Limit switch burns out


Bravo on your troubleshooting, however, it is strongly recommended that if the hi-limit thermostat and/or the Thermal cut-out are defective that you replace BOTH components at the same time. That's why they are commonly sold as a set. Failure to do so can result in premature failure of the components you just replaced. In addtion, before you replace any components, make sure the dryer exhaust vent ducting is clear and free of obstructions. This is usally the cause of most dryer failures. This will cause the heating circuits to overheat, which is usually why the TCO or hi-limit thermostats fail. Let me know if you have any questions. I hope this helps you.

Clothes dryer not producing heat


Check voltage at the receptacle first. The motor and timer operate on 120VAC. The heating element requires 208/240VAC to operate. Remove power from the unit. You can check the heating element, thermostats and thermal fuses using an ohm meter across each components terminals with one wire removed. The thermal fuses and thermostats should read zero ohms. The heating element will read low ohms (20 to 40). Successful heater operation still depends on the motor centrifugal switch being closed. Depending on the model, you need the heat circuit in the timer or electronic control to be closed.
I hope this helps you.

Hope your sitting down. There is not just heating elements in the dryer there are thermal switches that turn heating elements off & on like your house thermostat clicks off & on. Also there are overheating thermal switches to keep the elements from setting the dryer, clothes on fire. More than likely you overheating thermal switch has tripped, from lent in vent or pinched vent tube or normal failure. Some of these switches can be reset, others replaced. If you can not trouble shoot electrical circuits leave it to repairman. Switch $20.00 to $42.00 Labor service call cheaper to buy cheap new dryer. Could be heating element but most use only one with different inputs for heat. If your getting some heat not likely element.

Maytag PYE3300AYW Elec Dryer Runs, But No Heat


hello kellygubser,
If you are sure the thermal switch is ok.. have you checked the high temp ( bi metal snap switch) too? Here is a link to the wiring diagram of your dryer. You can see that there are a few other temp switches in circuit of the heating element that would disble it.. Hope this helps
