I have changed the element and hi-limit thermostat in my maytag dryer modle number PYE3360AYW but still no heat.
Answer Hello Francis, have you replaced the Thermal Fuse LA-1053? Check all your wiring as well and make sure you clean your venting so there is no obstruction. Here's a link that may help you determine the problem. Hope this helps! http://www.appliancepartspros.com/repair-help/dryer-repair-help.html#electric
We ordered part number AP4038985, the timer box but it has different connections then the old part and there is no way to use it. Any suggestions?
Answer Hi Darline. The blk wire connects to the "blk" terminal. The One black wire going to the buzzer connects to the "S" terminal. The purple wire going to the motor hooks there as well ("S") terminal. The Orange wire and the red/black wire from the #2 wrinkle switch post terminal connects to the "M" timer terminal. The other red/blk wire from the wrinkle switch connects to the "W" timer terminal. One black wire from the timer motor itself connects to the "L" terminal. The other black timer motor wire connects to the "TM" timer terminal. The white wire from the buzzer connects to the "B" terminal. The white wire from the Terminal block connects to the timers "N" terminal. The Timer 3.77 ohm resister connects to the timer "A" terminal. The Other end of this resister connects to the timer "R" terminal as well as the Red wire going to the heater element. Lastly there is a red wire going to the "H" timer terminal it ends up at the heat selector switch on the L1 feed terminal. There is a supplied wiring diagram in behind the timer to compare all this to. This is the only timer for your model. Thank You.
Dryer heats fine, but for some reason it won't shut-off. It would run forever until someone opens the door.
Answer Rollie, If the timer advances and shuts off in a "timed Dry" selection, the issue is not the timer. If the timer does not advance and shut off in the "auto advance" cycle, the issue is in the operating temperature of the dryer, and usually due to a restricted vent. Your first option is the check the timed dry for advance and off. then disconnect the exhaust vent and check the automatic cycle for advance and shut off. Thanks and Good Luck
When I try to start my dryer it will not start. When I push in the start button nothing happens.
Answer Dean, there are other comopnents to check before you replace the timer. First, make sure you have 240 VAC at the rear terminal block on the back of the dryer. Raise the top( press in on the spring clips and lift up on the corner) and check the door switch circuit LA-1005, with the door closed there should be a "closed " circuit between the terminals and an "open" circuit with the door open. From there, check the hi limit and thermal fuse, located on the heater housing in the top left rear corner of the cabinet LA-1053 if either of these check with an open circuit, you will need to replace these parts. Here's some meter usage information that will help you out [http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html] Thanks
dryer was operating fine then stopped running in middle of cycle. the timer is running when in lower position of dial only. checked power throughout and current is there. the drum will not turn in any position.
Answer Ed, are you sure you have 240 VAC at the terminal block, on the back of the dryer ? Since the timer is running,the thermal fuse is OK, as well as other components, but if the motor has no voltage , and doesn't run, the dryer won't heat, and the timer won't advance on the other selections. The power cord and terminal block, is the best place to start. Good Luck.
No power at all. No light, no drum movement, nothing. Power supply is working. What would keep the whole unit from not operating?
Answer Hello David. You will need to test the thermal fuse on the side of the heater housing to see if it is bad. It should read closed for continuity. If it is bad, you will need to replace the fuse kit LA-1053. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DM1. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter.
