Question and Answers

Q:

Maytag Dryer part came off during cycle MDG7600AWW

A:

Thank you for choosing Searspartsdirect.com and being a valued member. I can certainly assist you .

I did look at the diagram and it looks to me like it could be the radiant shield located on the  heater diagram. I recommend taking a look at the part. Key number 6 on diagram. 

You may need a service technician to come out or upload a photo of the part. We do not have color or descriptions of the parts.

You can also visit searpartsdirect.com for parts, diagrams, and repair information.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Thank you for your question. Have a great day.

Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com

I am sorry and do understand your frustration when having trouble with the parts that you have gotten.

Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your Maytag model number MDG6800AWW.

Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com

 Thanks for writting back James.   Looking up the information on the thermostats.

 

303395 Thermostat is a high limit thermostat.  Is a thermostat off the blower cone where the ignitor fits into.  It is screwed in on the right hand side middle.   I have it on the link below.  It is key number 22 and the screw is key number 48.   I am very sorry but I do not see any thermostats for this model with the part number 3387134.   It is a good part number for the thermostat but I do not see it listed on the diagram.

Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com

On this dryer, it is heating or not heating at all?

Is the ignitor coming on and going out?

All I know is that you ordered the thermostats but not the why.   I don't know weather you have a heating issue or a lighting issue to keep it lit with the ignitor or gas valve.

This machine is 10 years old and so therefore with being gas.   I would seriously think on getting a new dryer.   You have burner assemblys, ignitors, The gas valve amonst many items that can be a problem.   Expectant life on this machine is 12 years.

 If you have further questions please let me know.

The dryer starts and generates some heat and then begins blowing unheated air. When I called Sears parts on the phone, based on the symptpms the person thought it would be one of the 2 thermostats. She also said older dryers can last 30 years, which is not what we have found after the order was placed. It is 12 years old. Based upon research I have done, the most common causes of our problem is the Cycling Thermostat or'M' Series New Style Coil Kitor a coil Each of these were listed about 30%. But 13 other causes were mentioned including the other hi liniit thermostat we got which is a percentage of the source of problems. A local individual would charge me 45 an hour. Had called him since I was not sure if I could replace the part. Seems the worst part was replacing the hi limit thermostat, since one screw was on the opposite side so I had to get that one in first and tighten it enough so the thermostat would not rotate before I got the front screw into it. I am thinking back and I know I tightened both screws tight, but if the bottom part was not inside the hole enough would that cause it to fail. Sounds like I may be taking a chance to spend more. Hard to say about appliances as I still have a Sears central air consitionet which is 40 years old. Will likely go to our 3rd furnace at the same time. All other major appliances in our kitchen have been replaced with Kenmore appliances when we had Great Indoors redo our kitchen. Great Indoors was a Sears venture closed about a year or so ago which I was sorry to see happen.

Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com

Im very sorry for the problems.   With the information you just gave me, I would of had you check the thermal fuse which is the main fuse on your drying problems.   Part number 33001762.

When the dryer blows even the least little bit of heat then we know it isn't the heating element.

 I would guess the thermal fuse and the gas valve because it has the 2 coils on it to keep the heat generated with the 2 coils that are on it.   Most dryers you can get the coils by themselves cheap but this one comes as a gas valve complete.  Gas valve and the thermal fuse is on the link below.

gas valve per model mdg6800aww

Q:

Want to replace 2 thermostats on MDG7600AWW Maytag Dryer

A:

Thank you for your question. Here is a video I have also included written instructions.

Remove the wire connected to the terminal on the high-limit thermostat.


Pull the thermostat off of the heating element terminal, located below the thermostat.


Remove and discard the old high-limit thermostat.


Hook the top end of the new high-limit thermostat onto the metal tab on the heating element and then slide the bottom terminal onto the heating element terminal.


Slide the wire that was connected to the old high-limit thermostat onto the top terminal of the new thermostat.


Before replacing the circulating thermostat.
Locate the heating coil, and check the continuity with an ohmmeter. Insert the testing wires into the meter, the black wire plugs into the ground hole, and the red wire plugs into the ohms hole. Hook the testing wires up to the coil plug, metal to metal. If the reading falls outside of the 0 to 0.5 range, replace the heating element.


If it has no reading at this time replace the circulating thermostat by the black box by the heating element.

If you have any questions please reply to this post.

Thank you for choosing Manage My Life.
