Thank you for your question.  I am sorry for the problem with your Magic Chef CYE30004ayw Electric Dryer

From the description you give I suspect the problem is the Thermal Fuse located on the heater housing.  See image below. 

You will need to remove the front panel and drum to access the thermal fuse.  The 2nd image below may be helpful to you.  Caution: before attempting any repair unplug the dryer from the wall first. 

I hope this helps.  You can reply below with any additional details or questions for further assistance.

You can access that heating element by unplugging the dryer and lifting the top panel. The fist image below shows how to release the clips that secure the front of that top panel to the front panel. Once you release those clips, you lift the top panel and lean it on the wall behind the dryer. Make sure that it is secure so that it does not fall. You should then be able to access the heating element in the back of the dryer. It is shown as Key 1 on the parts image below. If you have not tested that element, you can use the information shown in this video to check that component: Dryer Element Testing .

If you have not already ordered that element, you can buy it from the Sears PartsDirect website. The part number for that element is LA-1044. Here is a direct link for the element: Heater Replacement Kit .

I hope that this information helps. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

Thank you for your question on the Magic Chef dryer.

The model number you gave me comes up in my system as a Magic Chef dryer, is that correct?

While the salesman is accurate for a newer Maytag dryer it is not accurate for a Magic Chef dryer. He probably is correct with the diagnosis of the thermal fuse being out.

You will need to first REMOVE POWER TO THE DRYER.

Then use a flat tool like a putty knife to push in the top retainer spring clips to lift up the top of the dryer.

These spring clips are between the front of the top panel and the front panel of the dryer.

About 3 inches in from each side slide the putty knife in and push and lift the top. You will have to do this on both sides of the front of the dryer.

Once you have the top lifted up like the hood of a care you will need to locate the thermal fuse in the right rear corner of the cabinet. If you have a multi-meter you can remove on thermal on the thermal fuse and test for continuity. If it is open that is your problem with the fuse.

The reason the fuse goes bad is usually the dryer vent has a build up of lint and needs to be removed and cleaned at the back of the dryer all the way to the outside.

The thermal fuse is a safety device.

I have given you am image below to help you locate the thermal fuse which is Key 5 in the picture back by the heating element on the cabinet.

The part number for the thermal fuse is:LA-1053 for about $36.00, and you can order it from: Sears Parts Direct .

I hope this information will help and if you find the thermal fuse if good and you need more help please reply.
