I got one Kenmore electric dryer and the unit dont start! I checked the push switch and the door switch and are good. Where is the problem in this units?
Answer Hello Hector,
As with any appliance issue, the first thing to check is the power supply. If the door switch and push-to-start switches test good, you will next need to check the thermal fuse 3392519. If it turns out to be the issue and it is still in the installation location where it failed, the exhaust ducting needs to be checked for crimps or clogs. The thermal fuse is only opened by high temperatures caused by the dryer not being able to blow out the heat.
cycling thermostat is bad, but this dryer's back panel doesn't remove. I found no access panels in the area around the blower wheel housing. and ideas on gaining access to the thermostat for this maytag model?
The blower housing where the cycling thermostat is located would be a the front of the unit and requires the front panel to be removed. You do this by removing the door off the unit and removing the screws on the opposite side of where the door hinge screws are. You then grab the door opening and twist outward to release the door front panel. This should give access to the blower housing.
