My Admiral dryer suddenly stopped heating on both cycles. It worked one day, and quit the next. Tub turns fine and cycles run fine, just no heat. Last time I used kit AP 4242494 to replace the hi-limit thermostat and heating element to fix it. Would you still recommend this, and is there a fuse I should order with it? Thanks for your help...Joe

Admiral / Maytag Great Dryer. takes 11 hours to dry a load. Actually it just quit heating all together just now. Model ADE7000AYW. If I order the heating element is there any other part(s) that should be replaced while I am at it? The machine is 10 years old but still is nice. Mike

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?

I had a service tech come to my house and replace the heating element (part no. LA1044) 2 months ago. The dryer has stopped working again, and I have figured out that the thermal fuse is definitely bad. I disconnected the 2 white wires going to the fuse, temporarily connected them, and the dryer works. My main question for you, is the thermal fuse normally included with the purchase of a new heating element? Would there be any reason to believe he replaced only the heating element, but the thermal fuse was not replaced? And if this was probably a thermal fuse that was only 2 months old - would I be out of line to expect the repair tech to replace this part free of charge? Thank you in advance

Model # is CYE2000AYN and Serial # 10564863ZU - I believe the heating element part says 53-3731. Need new heating element for our Magic Chef dryer. Do you have one on hand that will work with this model? Would like to get it ordered today. Thank you.

Hello I replaced the heating element on my dryer. All I need to do is confirm I put the wires back on correctly. There is a orange wire and a red wire I have the red wire on the prong that is closer to the rear of the dryer and the orange is on the other. Is the correct? thank you

My dryer was tripping the circuit breaker after only a few minutes. After some research, I replaced the motor and now it will for a full cycle, but something smells like it is burning. It had the smell before I change the motor but the dryer never stayed on long enough for me to find anything. The dryer is 3 yrs old and I have cleaned all traces of lint when I had it apart. Any ideas?
