maytag atlantis dryer mde6400ayw service manual?
« on: November 06, 2013, 09:19:19 PM »
I have a customer with a atlantis electric dryer. Its not heating.
Checked all the thermostats, fuses, and heating element. All good.
There is 120 volts going to the heating element from the motor side (i believe the motor side). The terminal on the left of the heating element has 120 volts when running...
If thats correct, i assume the motor switch is good.
The temp switch seems to be working fine.
There was not any power coming from the timer to the elemnt.
 Am assuming the heating element needs 240 volts to heat up.
It looks like the timer is the problem.
Looking for the manual so i can make sure my tests were accurate.
Did not see it on the drive.
Thanks!

With the dryer running, check for a voltage drop between the two thickest wires at the timer.  If you get a reading of 240 vac, the timer is bad.

Thanks tgoods.  I checked it like you said.  It had 240 vac at the two thickest wires.

Installed the new timer and all is well again.

I appreciate your help.

Next time take the 2 thickest wires and put them together to bypass the timer. THIS IS JUST A TEST NOT A PERM. FIX.  My old neptune I put them  on the same terminal worked great knowing the motor would stop the heat when off, but would not do this for a customer...[Liability issues}
