I checked all of the most commonly affected parts (as described on this site) with an ohmmeter (My first time but very easy to use). The only exception was the heating coil but this appeared to be working fine. The cycling thermostat showed resistance so I ordered a new one here. Replaced it and now the drying is working like new! The informational youtubes, diagnosis, purchase and repair only took me an hour. Never tried fixing an appliance myself before but so satisfying! $25 dollars and convenient timing is much better than the $350 I spent to have an appliance repairman fix my washer.

First, I would like to say how pleased I am with how quickly the part arrived. The repair was very straightforward. I used the video on the PartSelect site to guide me. Removed wires one at a time so that I could immediately put them on the corresponding place on the new part. Took less than 10 minutes.

Replacing the cycling thermostat went really fast and easy. Unplug the dryer. Remove the 6-8 hex-head screws holding the back panel in place. The thermostat location is in the lower left. below the black discharge air duct. Note the location and/or tag the wires connected to it. Pull off the wires and remove the screw holding the thermostat in place and remove it. Reverse the procedure for installation of the new thermostat. Where this got tricky was it did not solve the problem. A strict diagnosis based on the electrical schematic alone would have, and did, indicate a faulty thermostat, i.e. on that was not opening. However, what I found was surprising. The heating element coil had broken and part of it had "welded" to the casing, grounding it and effectively turning the 240V heater into a 120V heater. This allowed the heater to provide heat (low heat). However, the timer motor needs 240V to operate and since one leg of the heater was grounded the timer could not get 240V when the thermostat cycled off. Replacing the heating element solved the problem.

not enough heat

first I unplugged the dryer. Then I removed the back of the dryer with a 1/4" nut driver. with the back off using the same 1/4" nut driver I removed the one screw that holds the cycling t-stat slowly remove the t-stat and take one wire off at a time and plug it onto the new t-stat once all wires are replaced. place the t-stat back in and secure with the screw. Then put the back of the dryer back on. put the dryer vent hose back on. plug in and away you go. repair done. If that doesn't fix it. Then the next step is probably to check the gas valve coils. That is a little more difficult repair but not to hard.

Unplug the dryer, remove hot air duct. Remove metal dryer back to access thermostat using a nut driver. Unscrew one screw holding on thermostat, detach 4 wires, and replace with new unit, attaching 4 wires to new unit. Then reverse process to button up the dryer. Great how-to video on your site helped a lot!

I followed exactly the video. It really was that simple. My 5 year old even helped me unscrew the nuts. The Thermostat was on the lint shaft and unscrewed easily. Once out I removed the wires. The hardest part was removing the wires, They were really tight. I replaced the wires and screwed in the part. Before I replaced the back I cleaned out the lint tube and turned on the dryer. I saw the flame and the heater kicked right on. I replaced the back and was done. *****However the next time the dryer went the heat didn't remain on and turned off too soon. I did some more research and found you usually need to replace the thermal fuse at the same time on Whirlpool units. So I have ordered the part and will let you know if kept the heater from turning off too soon.

Dryer wasn't heating and ran continuously

I ordered the thermostat switch thinking I'd isolated the problem. Discovering that wasn't the problem, I disconnected and inspected the heater coils and found the break in the coil. I then ordered the heater element (also from Partselect.com). It was simple, fast and works like a champ. I did discover my outside vent had a bird's nest in it. You really need to occasionally check your dryer vent (inside and out), for lint and apparently bird's nests.

Dryer just wasn't hot enough

Maytag makes it really easy to replace this part. Unlike the video which has the access panel in the rear of the dryer, Maytag accesses all the thermostats and wiring front the front so you don't even have to pull the unit away from the wall. Smart!! The video was great to show you what the part looks like and how its installed. Installed the part in less than 10 minutes. Now our clothes are drying as they should in half the time...best $20 I spent in a while.

I got on line and searched for parts. I called Parts Select and a gentleman discussed the problem with me. He suggested what part(s) I possibly needed. He sent me the parts we discussed, (he said I would receive them withing 5 business days) I received them in 2. I watched the video which explained procedures for repair, I disassembled the dryer installed the thermostat, reassembled and with in 1/2 hour we were drying clothes. If I ever have any other problems I would call again for info. A great experience keep the good work

Removed rear panel and replaced sensor. Sad thing is this was not the problem.It was the coil valves! They are a $20 part together, and I wish I would have replaced them first! There is two of them that are on the main valve for the gas! Remove the front cover of machine. Make sure the gas is off , remove the bracket holding the valves in and this it! Quick simply repair that is where I should have started!
