Question and Answers

Q:

Why won't may Maytag dryer run?

A:

According to your symptoms, it is likely that you have a blown thermal fuse in the dryer. The wiring diagram for the dryer is shown in the image below. The light will not work if the thermal fuse is blown even though the timer will advance since it picks up the neutral through a different circuit.

The thermal fuse is shown in the second image below. It is Key 5 in this image. It is located in the heater housing assembly in the back left top portion of the dryer. You can access it by unplugging the dryer and lifting the top panel. I recommend unplugging the dryer and checking this fuse for continuity. If it is blown, it will need to be replaced. You will also need to replace the high limit thermostat (Key 3) at the same time since this thermostat should have opened to shut off the heater and prevent the thermal fuse from blowing. You can order a kit (part LA-1053) that will have both of the components from the Sears PartsDirect website. Also check for damage to the heating element. If the heating element is shorted to the dryer cabinet it can heat constantly and cause the thermal fuse to blow. An exhaust vent duct restriction can also cause the dryer to overheat. Check the flexible exhaust vent behind the dryer for a kink or lint clog. Check the exhaust vent duct system to the outside of the home for clogs or restrictions. Make sure that the exhaust vent damper on the outside of the home is opening properly.

These tips should help you resolve this dryer problem. If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details.

Q:

What would cause my Maytag dryer to quit working suddenly?

A:

The likely failure is a blown thermal fuse (key#5) preventing it from operating and preventing the drum lamp from coming on. (See wiring diagram below) The thermal fuse is located on right side of the heating element housing (key#2) which is located in upper left rear corner as you are standing in front of the dryer. (See images below)

The top will need to be hinged opened by releasing the two clips located about four (4) inches in from either side at the top of the front panel. These clips are located between the top and front panel. Push them in and raise the top.

You will see a hex head screw which threads down through the mounting clip (key#6) that will need to be removed in order to replace the thermal fuse (key#5).

NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before raising the top.
