Admiral / Maytag Great Dryer. takes 11 hours to dry a load. Actually it just quit heating all together just now. Model ADE7000AYW. If I order the heating element is there any other part(s) that should be replaced while I am at it? The machine is 10 years old but still is nice. Mike

Maytag Performa Dryer PYE4500AYW. It won't start. The light won't turn on when opening the door. Power is coming in. Door switch, thermal fuse and push timer pass the continuity and the push timer is making clicking noise. What could be the issue?

I had a service tech come to my house and replace the heating element (part no. LA1044) 2 months ago. The dryer has stopped working again, and I have figured out that the thermal fuse is definitely bad. I disconnected the 2 white wires going to the fuse, temporarily connected them, and the dryer works. My main question for you, is the thermal fuse normally included with the purchase of a new heating element? Would there be any reason to believe he replaced only the heating element, but the thermal fuse was not replaced? And if this was probably a thermal fuse that was only 2 months old - would I be out of line to expect the repair tech to replace this part free of charge? Thank you in advance
