Question about Maytag MDE9700AYW Neptune 174 Electric Dryer
I turned on my dryer today & it started working like normal but several minutes later I went in & it had stopped. There are no lights on and appears to not be getting any power. I have checked all breakers & unplugged it without any luck. Any other ideas of how to fix it?
Gain access to the inside and the wiring of the machine.
First, check the wires with a meter and see if electricity is even getting to the 3 or 4 wire "buss bar" where the electric cord attaches from the wall to inside the machine.
If all that tests OK, then take an ohm-meter or a multi-meter and begin testing each of the "fire-protection" circuits.
You may find as many as 6 thermal switches, and as many as 3 fuses.
Unplug each one you test, and test it with the ohm-meter for continuity.
The one that shows no continuity is your problem.
God bless your efforts.

most maytag "performa" dryers with no power h appen froma blown thermal fuse. It is located under the top and beside the heating element. you can take an ohm meter to both terminals.If you do not get a reading, the part is bad. It comes as a kit with a new safety tstat

Had the same problem, removed the kick panel to find a set of instructions under the insulation, had to push a sequence of the panel buttons, its been running great for a couple of weeks now!
