    I am unable to locate the thermal fuse. New drive motor installed worked but suddenly quit after several loads. Machine hums but won't turn motor. Where is the thermal fuse on my machine? Can you tell age of this machine from sn?
    For model number DG412 and Serial: 738345NG
    Hi Edward, Thank you for your question. This appliance was made in the year 1984. Unfortunately the diagrams underneath your model do not help very much but usually this fuse is located on the blower housing. I would suggest checking there first. Good luck with your repair.

    I have a Maytag heavy duty electric dryer. Model number: Lde312 series 07 serial number 308129. The machine is tumbling when switched on but dial / timer does not turn off and there is no heat. Which part do you recommend for this machine. Thanks for any help or advice you can give.
    For model number LDE312
    Hello Janet, thank you for inquiring. You will want to consider either the Cycling Thermostat, part number PS11743793, or the Timer, part number PS11740669 for your model. Good luck with your repair!

        Maytag Dyer stopped heating
        My 20 yr old Maytag dryer had experienced this problem about 10 years ago. At that time I replace the Gas Dyer Radiant Flame sensor and it fixed the problem. I figured a sensor went bad again however I opted to replace all of the sensors at once thinking I'm avoiding potential future issues and the dryer will out live me. Replacing the sensors is a piece of cake on my Maytag. A nutdriver and srewdriver was all that I needed. PartSelect was great to deal with and the parts did the trick.

        Dryer wouldn't start
        First I took the back and front off and vacuumed up the built up lint. I couldn't see anything glaringly wrong, so I started looking online and found www.partselect.com .
        I went through the list of things to check one by one until I found the thermal fuse to be blown. A sticker inside the dryer said "Replace cycling therm. when replacing thermal fuse," so I followed that advice and replaced the thermostat. I followed the directions on the same link.

        Dryer has been working fine since. I cleaned lots of built up lint, which it seems may have been the culprit.

        no power, not turn on
        I bought all the recommended parts for this trouble, but it turned out to be caused by burt wire on terminal block causing separation from block as all latches, motor, breakers, elements, switches and thermal sensors tested positive continuity, I finally decided to look in rear panel where incoming power meets terminus to motor, etc. and wires were burnt at ends and post on block was separated from base. I got on phone immediately to customer service to order part shown on their very helpful schematic diagram seen on partselect website. The part was unfortunately discontinued but may be available from other sources. She explained how to search based on part # and the words " terminal block" which directed me to a supplier in MI. Repair completed once appropriate part was received. Thanks again for the direction given even though part was not purchased in the end. Will certainly return to partselect in the future if any issues come up in future. Very helpful site for the DIY'er!!
