My dryer will not heat. I have replaced the thermister, thermostats, hi/low switch, heating coil, and control panel. Still no heat. It does run, however. Any help would be appreciated.
There are 2 components other than the thermostats which would cause the heating element not to work. First is the motor 35001080 and second the Main control board 35001153 . The best option is to disconnect the power to the unit and access the heating element. Disconnect one wire that is going to the heating element, preferably the one on the thermostat side. Plug the unit back up and using a multimeter you will want to turn the dryer on and test for 120 vac at the terminal on the heater where the wire was disconnected. What this will do is eliminate the heater element itself and the motor. If there is 120 vac at this point then you know the heater is good and the motor is good because the other 120 vac coming through the thermostats is the timer side of the circuit. If there is not 120 vac at that point then you will want to test the other terminal on the heater and check for 120 vac. If there is not 120 vac then the motor would be bad and if there is 120 vac then the heater would be the issue.
Maytag dryer, no power, no lights at all, 246 volts both legs combine, 123 volts each leg to the connection terminal, terminal block is good. Wires to power board, the 12 gauge blue and black which plugs into the board, no voltage detected. Checked thermal fuse, it is getting continuity, checked door switch it is working. The power board looks pretty good with the exception of a round ( "transistor") white plastic case with dime size metal disc which has small amount of blackish on it, located just next to white connection leading to front control panel, also inspected front of dryer control board, nothing burned out. Power supple is lost and so am I. Thank you
Answer Hello Roy,
I would verify 120Vac to the grey wire on the light socket to ground. If it is there, test from the grey wire to the white wire. It should also read 120Vac. If not, you have dropped neutral. Note the wiring diagram on page 6 of the tech sheet.
