This fuse should be mounted on the side of the element box. If you flip the front off, there should be something holding down the lid. Flip the top up. You should see the element box. On the side, sometimes a little tricky to get to, you will see a small round fuse with two wires going to it. That will be your fuse. The Maytag number should be LA1053 I believe. It will come with two of the fuses (follow the instructions, one will be for gas, the other electric, and it has colored dots on the back of each one to help you) and a thermostat. Be sure to replace thermostat as well when you change out the fuse. Also, to remove the fuse, you will need to remove the 1/4" bolt that also holds the element in place. Slip the small metal fuse holder bracket out then up to remove. Hint, leave the wires connected when removing and installing the fuse, its small and not a large area to work in, if you drop it, it may be a while before finding it. Jim

Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage.
CHECK THERMAL SHUT OFF THERMOSTAT USUALLY LOCATED ON THE BLOWER. for OHMS or resistance with a meter. Should show a closed circuit. Ohms WHEN THIS FUSE BLOWS IT WILL SHUT DOWN EVERYTHING.
NEXT Test the PUSH start switch with meter for OHMS. Should show OHMS when pushed in or on start, and no ohms or infinity when in off position.
If you hear a humming/clicking sound from motor area you more than likely have a bad motor.
Try this test out to see if u have weak windings or relay/capacitor on motor.
Open the dryer door and turn by hand the drum while machine is on ON position. And you or someone else presses the door engagement switch in. If it starts up then u have bad windings
Another thing to check is the belt safety switch. With a multi meter.
Especially if u just replaced the belt. The belt safety switch is attached to the Tensioner and motor. IT LOOKS LIKE A DOOR SWITCH SOMEWHAT a little black pc of plastic with 2 prongs going into it. Sits at bottom of motor. Under the Tensioner. Attach meter clips to the 2 prongs on switch, Then when the little white push button is pressed in it should show continuity and none when released.
Lastly check ur DOOR SWITCH for continuity with a meter when the button is pushed in the (on/Door closed position,) it may have gone bad.
Maytag dryer. has no start check door switch. if not door switch then its your relay board that may be bad also check all stats.
there will be 2 at blower cage and 2 on heater assembly
The 2 on blower cage one of these are a resister stat has to be exact resistance or dryer wont start or will start and then shut off dryer b4 it is completed drying hope this helps there should be a cheat sheet paper work that will help you diagnose your problem fallow the steps if not with dryer can be viewed online
Well first of all you can check door switch - If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. The door switch is a simple on / off switch to indicate whether the dryer's door is open or closed. The dryer will not operate when the door is open. If your dryer runs with the door open, the switch may shorted closed or there may be a dangerous electrical short in your dryer. If your dryer will not start when you press the start button and you hear no sounds, the door switch may be the problem.
This could be several easy fixes. Check to see if the door switch is working if it is not clicking when pushed this could be the issue. try resetting the breaker, if it's not getting both legs of the 240v it won't start. or the start button could be defective. This is where I would start (and most of the time finish) looking. With some common tools and an ohm meter you should be able to find the problem.
