How to repair a Maytag Dryer. (Call the nearest serviceman.)
Shut off the power and unplug the machine.
Open the 'box'. Two screws in the front near the floor and hinge open.
Make a diagram of ever screw and piece you remove.
Diagnose the problem.
Order the necessary parts from ....
Replace the part. (The element replace the second time in 30 years.)
Give the box a cleaning inside and out.
Put it back together.
Make sure all the parts you took out go back in.
Plug it in and turn on the power.
Using a magnet to hold all the screws was helpful.
Having all the right tools is helpful. The requirements were pretty basic.
A good mechanical aptitude is essential or very helpful.
It is very important the exhaust port is patent. A leaf blower would be helpful in testing. I reversed the hose on our vacumn cleaner and packed foam around the tubbing to test it. (The local dealer warn me about using too much of the clothes softner.)
