Re: dryer - acquaviva 1300 - how it works?
The dryer has 2 thermostats if these are blown then the heater wont work but you can check to see if the element is burned out by unplugging your machine opening the top off it the wires that plug into the element replace with a plugged wire with bare wires on the end place each wire into the correct connector and turn the plug on this will either heat the element up or if it doesnt then the element is blown m8

A dryer moisture sensor can stop working without notice, until you notice your clothes being over dried or still wet at the end of the cycle. It is a good practice to test the dryer moisture sensor periodically. There are two types of moisture-detecting sensors for dryers. Once you understand how they work you will see how to test each one. 1. Sensor BarThese sensors contain digits that protrude outwardly. They work on an electrical current and the moisture from the clothing. The first step to test is to place completely dry clothes in the dryer and turn on the dryer; it should run for a few moments and then shut down right away. Secondly, place damp clothes into the dryer, turn on the dryer and watch the timer. As the clothes begin to dry the timer will move and shut off. 2. ThermostatThe timer is regulated by the thermostat. The thermostat rests in a closed position. To test this type of moisture sensor, place damp clothes in the dryer. Watch the timer; as the clothes begin to dry, the thermostat should open and the timer will move forward ,eventually shutting off.
The usual reason a dryer will heat yet not dry the clothes is going to be a air flow problem. What ya need to check is for a blocked vent and or lint build up in the blower assambly.
By far though a leading cause of that on Maytag dryers is a broken blower wheel and therefore no warm air is being drawnthrough the clothes,to check that remove the front panel and the front drum support and in the lower left corner will be the blower asm. check to see if it moves free and doesnt seem to be attached to the motor shaft.
IN FIRST INSTANCE DONT JUST SWITCH OFF APPLIANCE - REMOVE PLUG FROM SOCKET AS WELL.
On rear of dryer their is a panel - under this panel lies the heater assembly and two protectors (TOC'S) it is more than likely that one of these has failed - Test with meter to find which one..
your blower motor is probably not working. enter the troubleshooting mode by pressing and holding my cycles and help at the same time for 3 seconds. this will tell you the problem. if blower is not getting up to speed you'll have to replace it.
