Maytag dryer runs, does not heat

I have a Maytag model# mde8506ayw -- it runs, but the heat does not come on. I checked to make sure heat is on the dial. Checked voltages at the heater cylinder gauges. Need help to determine if it is the switch or heater elements. thank you

Check for continuity in the thermal fuse, also check heating element. make sure you have disconnected the power first. if this is a 220 volt machine make sure you are getting 220 to the machine. if one leg of the voltage has dropped out the motor will run but unit will not heat

A Maytag dryer model MDG9700AWW that wont heat. I've checked both coils, replaced ignitor, high limit, both thermistors and the flame sensor. All appear good. there's no voltage at the ignitor when...


If there is no voltage at the ignitor, some safety device is prohibiting it. If the coils are good, it's being prevented by the control board or the first solenoid of the gas valve.

I have a maytag performa electric dryer with no heat, checked fuses, replaced heat element and thermostat, any ideas


Have you checked to make certain you have the proper voltage where the dryer is plugged in? 220v? A dryer will run on 110v but requires 220v to heat. Could be a problem with the breaker in the breaker box. If you are not familiar with electricity, I suggest you find someone knowledgeable ie professonial

Doesn't heat


It sounds like the magnetron may have either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high voltage required to run it.

YOUR SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT

This is a job for a professional but if you are safety clued up, here's instruction.
Make sure the !!!!any capacitors are discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the door interlock switches first then the high voltage diode with either an AVO model 8 or moving coil meter on high resistance range for short circuit, (DVM's won't show the fault!), the capacitor can fail and go short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps.

Heating Element


your dryer is a 220 plug check the circuit breaker first
one 110 runs the heating element and the other 110 runs motor and dials
this is usually the cause of dryer malfunctions
heating elements are simple big mesh of curled metal wire like a toaster but more of it
it would take alot to knock out the heating element
check the dials too these could be sticking or worn dials you dont have to run dryer to check dials
