Question and Answers

Q:

my maytag dyer does not heat anymore what do you think i need

A:

Check to see if the drum light turns on when you open the door. Assuming that the bulb is okay, this will verify that you have the L2 leg of electrical power supplied to the dryer. The dryer motor will run if only the L1 leg of 120 volt power is supplied to the dryer. If the L2 leg of 120 volt power is missing the dryer will not heat (and the drum light will not turn on). In this situation, check your breaker. If the breaker is okay then you will likely need an electrician to check the circuit through your dryer outlet.

If the drum lamp turns on then you could have a bad temperature switch, failed heating element, a bad high limit thermostat, a failed cycling thermostat, a bad timer contact, a failed contact in the motor centrifugal switch or a wiring failure between components that would prevent the dryer from heating.

Try running the dryer on several different temperature settings to see if it will heat on any setting. If the dryer heats on some settings but not others then this switch will likely need to be replaced.

If you are able to access the heating element, you can check the resistance of this component with a volt/ohm meter. The heating element should measure about 10 ohms of resistance. If it is open (measures Ol -- open load or infinite resistance) then it will need to be replaced.

A technician will normally need to diagnose and repair the other potential failures listed above. Here is a link for the Sears Service website: Sears Home Services .

Q:

What is the proper wiring for the door switch on my Maytag Dryer?

A:

The white wire goes to the COM (common). The grey wire goes to the NC (normally closed). And, the yellow wire goes to the NO (normally open). I have included a picture (see below) of what the switch should look like.

If you require further assistance please resubmit question with more details. I will be looking forward to helping you again in the near future.
