Got an error code 'PF' on display and after that no heat
Answer Hello Steve! The “PF” flashes to indicate that a power failure occurred while the dryer was running. Press Start to continue the cycle, or press Pause/Cancel to clear the display. You will need to check voltage under a load and for loose connections at the terminal block on the back. Otherwisebad it can be a bad control board W10111606. Hope this helps!

I have a maytag centennial gas dryer that will not heat. How can I be sure what part I need?
Answer Hello Jennifer. You will need to test the thermostats and the flame sensor and make sure they are good. They should read closed for continuity. Also, check the igniter to see if it is good. If it is not glowing, test for power. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter for the testing procedures. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
Dryer gets hot but clothes take 3 or more hours to dry.
Answer Hello Brent. It sounds like the venting system is clogged or kinked. You will need to check the vent and clean it out. Be sure and clean the vent pipe and the dryer air duct assembly. If the air flow is not good, the unit will retain moist air causing the clothes not to dry. Try running the unit with the vent unhooked from the back of the dryer and see if the dryer works properly.
Trying to replace Thermal fuse, following your video. However I can not enter my dryer through the back of machine as shown on video. Please help
Answer Hello M.S.,
You will need to remove the front lower access panel with a putty knife. The thermal fuse 3392519 is mounted on the blower shroud. Replacing the thermal fuse is a ten minutes job but the ducting should be checked to prevent recurrence of the failure.
My dryer runs but doesn't heat and the timer will not advance. Does the heating of the dryer make the timer move? They are so many things on your web site that or parts that can cause the dryer not to heat. Please help.
Answer Hello Rebecca. Yes, the timer Is affected by the heating. 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
My Maytag dryer doesn't heat clothes anymore. Tested both thermostats (0 ohms), the thermal fuse (0 ohms) and the heating element (10 ohms) and all seem to be good. Is there another thermal fuse somewhere? What am I missing? Thanks!
Answer Hello Stolph,
The first thing to suspect and check for is the power supplied to the unit. You see, the only thing on the unit that is 240Vac is the heating element. Everything else is powered by 120Vac. If the L1 leg of the power supply is interrupted, nothing will work since this is the side wired to the motor, (another 120Vac component). If L2 is interrupted, however, the motor can still run but the heating element is unable to complete a circuit and will appear to have an issue. If you are getting 240Vac from the two outside terminals on the terminal block, (the part that the power cord bolts to on the back of the unit), the issue will either be the centrifugal switch in the motor 279827 or a set of contacts in the timer W10185988.
