Question and Answers

Q:

How do I remove the dryer trap case to clean?

A:

When it comes to removing parts on your appliance owners manuals are the greatest things to have. While you are waiting on an expert to answer your question, I found your owners manual in the Manage My Life website. I have attached the link below. Have a nice day!

Thank you, but thats the first place I looked. There are no instructions on how to remove that housing.

Thanks for your question about the Maytag dryer model HYE3460AYW. I will be happy to advise you on lint removal.

Lint will accumulate under the filter often and is easily removed with out disassembly of dryer. On this model you would have to lift top and remove front panel assembly. Anytime this is done realignment is critical when reassembled. My recommendation would be: remove filter and use a long wire brush that is designed to loosen and remove this lint. Also many vacuum cleaners have a narrow attachment that can help with lint removal. Here is the part number for a brush you can order from our Parts Direct dept Pt. # 4210463rw Go to searspartsdirect.com

If you find this solution does not help remove the lint please reply with detail.

Thanks Ron H.

Thank you. I thought there was an easier way than calling a service person. Will try. I'm looking for a brush locally. My zip code is 33701. Any suggestions without ordering?

The resistor will certainly keep the timer from advancing in the "Automatic Cycle" but it shouldn't prevent the timer from advancing in the Timed Dry cycle.

The wiring diagram below may help you see this.

The Timed Dry cycle is circled and the Automatic Dry Cycle is illustrated as well.

The resistor is available from the following link: Sears PartsDirect . You will need to know the model number and the first two digits of the serial number.

You can reply with any additional details or questions for further assistance.

Thinking the problem was originally the timer, I tried installing another timer. At first the problem was only that the dryer would not heat. Once I changed the timer, the timer would then not count down also in addition to not heating. I since have installed my old timer back on and now the dryer does count down but still does not heat. I checked the resistor on both the timer and the "temperature switch"? And they both did not have continuity on the multimeter... Is this the reason for my dryer not heating? (Also just curious as to why a new timer would pose the new problem of not counting down)

A:

I'm glad to hear the timer is counting down now at least. I suspect you are using a Time Dry cycle. If both the resistors show an open circuit then the timer shouldn't advance in the Automatic cycle. Time Dry should not be affected. The resistors should have nothing to do with the dryer heating. The wiring diagram about will help show you the heating circuit. The path is timer, heat switch, thermostat, safety thermostat, element and motor switch. Next step would be to check resistance/continuity with the meter. I'd start with the heat switch.

What would the open circuit on the resistors cause then? Also I'm curious as to why the new timer would pose the new problem of not counting down? (Yes its on a timed cycle)

A:

The timer should have been part number 31001731. It is odd that the new timer would not count down. time dry is a straightforward circuit. To find out what is going on will require checking voltage with the meter. If you have a meter then I'd start by checking the voltage at the terminal block while the dryer is running. Use extreme caution, 240 volts, and only do so if your comfortable checking live voltage with the meter. The teminal block should have a black, white and red wire. Between black and white and red to white should be 120 volts. Between black and red should be 240 volts. If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician.

How should I test the heat switch? Should I replace the resistors also?

A:

Checking continuity on the heat switch with the dryer unpluged there should be a circuit from the red wire to the yellow wire. The reistors would not prevent the dryer from heating. They only control the timer advancing.

Checked continuity on heat switch and it tests ok. What does the resistor on the heat switch control? All I do to test continuity on resistors is unplug it from switch and touch one end with the red and the other end with the black prongs from the multimeter correct? What would be the next step?

A:

I'm glad the heat switch checked okay. The diagram below shows the heating circuit. The path is 120 volts from the timer through the temperature switch. The voltage flows from the temperature switch to the control thermostat, safety thermostat and element. The othe 120 volts to the element comes through the motor switch. If the dryer doesn't heat then check continuity on the thermostats and element.
