I have a Maytag Performa Electric Dryer that's about 4 years old. Today while drying a load of cloths it stopped working. The timer doesn't turn, the drum doesn't spin, and the light on the inside of the dryer doesn't come on.

I reset the breakers a couple of times and that did nothing. I then checked the 220V with my meter and there's voltage. I let it set all day and that did nothing as well.

Thanks for the help,
Mike

Check your 220 line where it connects to the dryer, make sure none of those wires are burnt. If they check alright put your meter on the ohm scale and check the 220 cord from end to end.

Like Fat man said   check the voltage in the back of the dryer where it connects   ... It is possible its a burnt terminal block and there could even be alot of things like a bad door switch as well .... i dont have a model or a diagram but it sounds off hand you lost one leg of voltage to the dryer somewhere.

it sounds like the thermal fuse is burned out. but you gotta check the cord first
:hot:
we had a short timer once Johnny i forget his name, he wore a flack jacket, 2 helmets, and armor plated underwear, didnt do him any good though in Ashau Valley, when you times up your times up.

 The thermo fuse would not kill the light inside of the drum, sounds like you lost voltage to the dryer from the breaker box or our outlet burnt up, or a wire is burnt off of the terminal block where your cord attaches to the dryer. Also check your door switch, this controls both the motor and the light.

Sorry...

The thermal fuse is on the neutral, therefore nothing will work if it is burned out. Other messages have alluded to this fact. This is a Norge unit, and not at all the same as a Maytag, label not withstanding.
