dryer would start to heat and then shut off

  • Customer: Mary from Seattle WA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins

I ordered the thermal cut-off kit and replaced both of the fuses. The dryer worked! Unfortunately, after one or two loads it had stopped working again. Previously the dryer would heat up for a minute and then shut off. Now it doesn't heat at all. The motor turns on and it spins and blows cold air. The lint path is clear. I'm kinda stumped by this one. Who has some ideas for me?

First I reviewed the diagram to become familiar where items were located. I then insured unit was unpluged I used nutdriver to remove front cover from dryer. Noticed a lot of lint. Good time to vacuum it made finding screws and wires easier.Next Located heating element as described in parts location diagram. Utilized small socket to remove screws in cover plate. the socket set allow easy access to screws under cover plate. Removed 2 electrical wires from heating element. Pull heating element from housing with needle nose pliers. Had to tug a little, inspected element and found break in heating coil.Placed in new element by using reverse installation procedure. (didn't replace lint)This was an easy fix and I saved lots of dollars on repair or hundreds on new dryer. I spent about 20 minutes on the entire project. If you can read you can do this project. Very easy to complete. PS Ordering the parts was easy and arrived earlier than exepected.

No Heat/Not drying

My boyfriend changed the fuse first, that didn't work. I then ordered heating element and 250F Thermostat, the parts came very quickly. He then replaced the element and 250F Thermostat and still no heat. Last ditch effort was to order Thermal Cut-off. The plate that went with the Thermal cut-ff is a universal part, and my boyfriend didn't think it would work, but everything else had been changed, so he did and the dryer is back to drying everything within a 1/2 hour. Hopefully with all the fuses changed and heating element, it will last another 20 years. This site is awesome and helpful.

This was such an easy repair that my brother (who is a handyman but with no dryer experience) was able to remove the old element and install the new one in about 30 minutes. I was so happy that I found this website and that the part worked on the first try. I think my dryer works better than ever before!!

My Daughter and I have the same washer and dryer from Maytag. Her felt piece came apart on the lint filter. I let my fingers do the walking and checked which filter went with the dryer and purchased it. When it got here, I made sure it matched up with the old one and just put it in the dryer where it belonged.

I read the instructions on the internet. It told me what to trouble shoot first. The switch on the door then the thermo fuse and after that the thermostat. The off on switch on the door checked ok but the thermo fuse didn't when I followed the instructions on the internet. The thermostat did check ok. When I installed the new thermo fuse the dryer started like always before. I was pretty proud of myself for saving a hundred dollars or more. Thank you for the hlpful instructions.Larry

I must say what really made this install/replacement easy is the YouTube video link that was included with the belt replacement part. Once I saw the video (which showed my exact model dryer) it was a piece of cake! There was some work involved but once I got all the screws removed and took the shell off, installing the belt was a cake walk after watching the video. Many thanks!

Took bottom accesses panel off dryer (two screws). To the right was heating element housing. Three screws to remove inside. One at the bottom of houseing bracket (holds up heating element housing) which connects to dryer cabinet floor. One at top of bracket (connects to bottom of heating element housing). One on the left side where the elements wires connect (screw goes through housing then through element side arm). Once the three screws are removed disconnect wires and pull element stright towards you. Once everything was diasembled I took shopvac in side machine and swept it all out. Just reassble the same way you took apart.
