Maytag Performa Dryer PYE4500AYW. It won't start. The light won't turn on when opening the door. Power is coming in. Door switch, thermal fuse and push timer pass the continuity and the push timer is making clicking noise. What could be the issue?

Bala for Model Number Maytag Performa Dryer PYE4500AYW.

ANSWER Hello Bala. Make sure there is no wires burnt at the terminal block. If not, then the hi limit LA-1053 on the side of the heater housing sounds like it is bad. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
