Im new to the site and I have a problem I've been trying to figure out out on a Maytag PYE4500 Electric Dryer that wont operate AT ALL....(no light, no spin....nothing)
So heres the deal........
Dryer receptacle has proper 240v across pair and 120 per side to neutral/gnd.
Now after doing some research I was told the thermal fuses tend to blow due various reasons etc etc. i check th thermal fuse and sure enough....No Good !!!
so i decide to bypass the thermal fuse by taping the wires together just to see if everything will operate. After taping together I now have the interior light working but thats about it...dryer still wont turn on.
Timer....seems to be clicking away and operating properly plus I also metered terminlas on back of timer while aqjusting knob settings....fine
Heating element.....getting continuity and no signs anywhere of any arcs, sparks or breaks......fine
Door switch....ohmed out with meter and working fine while depressing pin everytime.........fine
So my question is whatelse could my problem be
I am going to pick up a LA-1053 thermal fuse/ high limit stat kit tomorrow b/c I hear it is proper practice to change both at same time.
I just want to know why when I bypass the thermal fuse the light now operates but thats about it...
is there a secondary thermal fuse I should now about?
Dryer lint trap system and exhausting vents were pretty much all clear and free from and crazy blockages.
Any help here would be great guys/gals.
thank you kindly...
PS: I look forward to any help I receive and look forward to helping others best way I can on this site....CHEERS!!!!
