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
Answer Mike, If you're replacing the heater element kit LA-1044, you need to consider a replacement thermal fuse 53-1182. the element kit contains the element assembly and the hi limit thermostat. Manufacturers require that when a thermostat is replaced, the corresponding thermal fuse be replaced as well. You also want to inspect the wires to the element, fuse, and thermostat to make sure they weren't damaged or overheated.
Hello, is LA-1044 the right part for my Maytag dryer? Have to change the element. And can we do it ourselves? Thank you.
Answer Hello Louise! According to the model number given the heating element part number LA-1044 is the correct replacement and will work on your unit. Thanks!
My dryer spins but there is no heat. I cleaned out the vent but still wont work. Do I need a new heating element?
Answer Hello David. 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
Dryer drum turns ok empty, but you can't put anything in it or it will stop.
Answer Hello Bobby. Check and make sure the belt 341241 is good on the unit. If so, then it sounds like you will need to replace the motor on the unit.
