I have a Maytag Dryer. I am wondering how many heating elements it has. Thank you.
Answer Hello Jimmy. There is only one heater in your dryer. We will need the serial number of the dryer to find the right heater for your series.
Ground wire to heat element burned in to......do I HAVE A BAD high limit thermal or a bad heat element?
Answer Hello Wendell. There should be no ground wire for this element. If a wire is burnt, just replace the wire and make sure the vent is clear.
Motor runs fine, no heat, thermal fuse has been replaced, any ideas?
Answer Hello Brian. 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
I need to remove the heating element to test it or replace it. How do I get it out of the dryer?
Answer Hello Dave. Use a flat blade to release the clips and raise the top of the unit. Then remove the screws securing the front panel and remove the panel from the unit. Once removed, you will test the heater Y503978 in the unit. It should read closed for continuity. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3.
