Not having worked on one of your models, I just gave some (I thought, after similar experience with other models) reasonable advice.
However, I thought I'd double check, and I found this in the Maytag service lit library for your model:
"Normal operating temperatures listed in some Sales Brochures, Training
Materials, and User Guides for the 24" dryers, are incorrect.
The listed Temperature settings are corrected as follows:
Listed Setting Incorrect Temperature Value Correct Temperature Value
Low Temperature Setting 140° F (60° C) 106° F (41° C)
Medium Temperature Setting 145° F (63° C) 109° F (43° C)
Regular Temperature Setting 150° F (66° C) 113° F (45° C)"
(The original published spec temps are first, the 'real' temps are 2nd)
FWIW the thermistor test spec is "60K ohms at room temperature"
(seriously 'room temperature' would be 68 degrees F standard)
Did it used to work OK... ...and now not?
