Dryer Repair / Re: Maytag PYET244AYW Performa not starting

@fairbank56: Thanks very much for the clarification(s). Along with tgoods', (AND YOUR) help, I managed to get through the timer test successfully, provided that I was supposed to read continuity across L/M and L/S. Is my assumption correct?
What reading(s) should I get across the thermal fuse terminals? If I have correctly identified the thermal fuse, it is a small rectangular "ceramic-looking" block, with 2 terminals on either side, mounted just to the right of a thermostat at the heater. There are 2 insulated wire, female clips on its right side, and 2 female clips on its left side, (looking from the front of the dryer), that are DIRECTLY EXTENDED from either end of the heater coil itself. Am I chasing a wild goose, or have I correctly identified the thermal fuse? Thanks very much, in advance, for your assistance and expertise. I am grateful for IT, AND ANY FURTHER help that you may provide.

Tommy    :thankyou:

"tE" error: Thermistor (no signal) error

Likely causes...

Poor connection at Thermistor plug (very common). Add NOALOX electrical compound to the plug connector. Avail @ Lowes.

Broken wire at Thermistor (not always visible). Repair as needed.

Thermistor is located at the front of the tub/6 0'clock position

I get an error code of an upside down F and an E. I've only seen a couple of websites that say what it is and they both say to call a tech. I'm not an appliance repair guy but I can follow a flow chart and test and repair things. I just a need a flow chart to show me where to start. Any ideas?

@tgoods: following up on my last post...upon closer inspection, the test that you advised became clearer, and somewhat less intimidating. I DID complete the test, per your instructions. There is continuity in each step of the test, and so, I assume, this tells us that the timer is operating properly. Is this correct? Irregardless, your help is greatly appreciated.     O0     :thanks:

here is what I do in this situation. first take off the hub held on by six screws spray a liberal amount of wd 40 or other lube down into the area where the basket sets on shaft. second put your foot down on top of the shaft and grasp basket and jerk up firmly. when it sticks wiggle and pull up. if it does not come up any more hold up on the basket while you grasp the shaft splines with good channelock pliers or vice grips and twist back and forth a few times ( basket will probably drop down some , lather rinse repeat each time you jerk the basket up it should come a little farther before it gets stuck)

caution when once you remove the hub the basket can drop further down the shaft but let it down gently. also unless you are changing the shaft and bearings make sure you protect the shaft splines with tape or a rag before you put the pliers to it.

I am looking at making some hooks of some ort to hook into the bottom basket slots and use a wheel puller to pull the baskets that stick on me. have had 2 or three that I have had to pull the shaft and basket together and then pound the shaft out
