The dryer was working but didnt have heat. I tested heater element, high limit thermostat, and thermal fuse. thermal fuse was the only one without continuity so i replaced it. Then I cleaned out all the lint that was inside. Tested it out opened the door after a couple minutes I can see a red glow and I can smell something burning. Im positive the heater element is touching the housing. Could the heater element be damaged even though it has continuity? Do I need to replace the high limit thermostat if I get a new heater element?

Black Wire going from the hi limit thermostat to the element has melted in two at the terminal. I presume this was a loose connection. I have replaced the wire with awg 12 type mtw/thwn-2/thhn. My question is...is this an acceptable replacemnt wire? I could not find adequate markings on the short piece that melted and I am unsure of the wire type. Thanks.

I have a maytag dryer and there is a black single wire running from the motor to the heating element box where the thermal fuse and something keeps causing the black wire to melt, I will strip it back and connect it and the for a week the dryer will work again and then it quits and the wire has melted again. What part is needed to be replaced for the problem?

This dryer was purchased in 2007. The dryer seems to be taking longer to dry. We have to run loads longer. I cleaned the dryer duct from begining to end recently.

I cannot get my dryer to heat. I have checked the high temp thermostat, safety thermostat and heating element, dropping resistor and all are OK. The motor runs. Could it be the motor centrifugal switch?

Does the heating element use 220 Volts? I hear a crackling noise for a short while during a cycle requiring heat, and I wondered if the element is a 110 Volt element, but it could be receiving more that 110 Volts thus causing the unusual noise. The dryer only makes the unusual noises coming from the rear during cycles requiring heat. Running in a no-heat cycle produces no unusual noises.
