I have a maytag neptune electric dryer that is not working correctly. Here is what I have found. The dryer will turn on, the drum will spin but there is not air movement and the heating element is not heating either ( I have front off and door off and I'm turning the dryer on, I know not recommended). I have replaced the entire heating element and shroud with in the last year. What should I be looking for now.
ANSWER Hello Ernie. You need to check and see if the blower wheel 33001790 is stripped out on the unit. Also, for the heating issue, Check and make sure you have 240 volts coming to the dryer. Check and make sure the unit is not set to Air Fluff. Also check the heater and thermostats and see if they are good. You can test these with a multi-meter TJMA-DM1. They should read closed for continuity. 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
