Maytag electric dryer model# PYE2300AYN Rev 10
Hopefully I can explain as simple as possible. For the second time I have installed a new high limit thermostat & thermal fuse in about 3-4 years apart. Dryer wasn't heating is the reason. First time I replaced them (3-4yrs ago) heating problem was corrected. Again about 2 days ago I reinstalled a new set, a high limit thermostat & thermal fuse because it wasn't heating again. Of course there was lent built up and I have cleaned it out. What happen next is puzzling as soon as the parts were installed HLT & TF and everything put back in place, I plug power power & turned dryer on I could smell burnt ordor. I opened the the dryer lid / door & could see through the perforated panel the heating element a very bright orange- reddish color. Reopened access to the HLT & TF and noticed the heating element burt up, some of the coils complete broken from the burn. I checked the the new HLT & TF & the older ones also. They all still have continuity and function well under heat, used an electric griddle set at 275-300 °f and they will open under said heat.
My question, if I instal a new heating element will I risk that the heating element will burning up again. For the experts does this sound like some other kind of problem. Dryer still runs, hopefully I can get an answer. Thank you kindly.
