Maytag DG412 Dryer not advancing

3 posts in this topic

I have just looked at a maytag DG412 dryer that is gas heated. When used on the regular temp sensor dry the timer does not advance. It does advance if set on low heat or on the one hour timer. From the wiring diagram included it would appear to me that the culprit is the regular heat thermostat. Since these parts are quite expensive but readily available here in NZ maybe someone can confirm my diagnosis before I buy the part.

 

Thanks guys.:D

I can't find a diagram for this dryer-- could you post yours so we can gaze lovingly upon it?

Yea  [user=2277]ethicalfix[/user]      in alot of cases is that T-stat ..... also just make sure that you have good airflow and that the blower wheel isnt stripped   I think the tstat that you are talking about is a 5 wire and once it heats to the temp then it sends power to auto advance the timer.....
