In Topic: Maytag Dryer doesn't heat (LDE8304ACE)

11 October 2011 - 09:37 AM

Mea culpa, Fermented GM! The back of the unit was difficult to get to and I assumed it was probably okay since the dryer was tumbling and moving cold air. Therefore, I did the continuity checks on the heating assembly as instructed first. Big mistake. I pulled the unit from its alcove this morning to do the voltage checks and could see that one of the leads from the power cord had fried! Looks like I'll be replacing the terminal block (~ $9) and the power cord. Thank you, Fermented GM.

Thanks for the info. I pulled the heating assmbly from the dryer and tested the continuity at several points. Got continuity (a reading of ~17 ohms) across the heating element terminals. Got readings of ~0.1 ohms across the terminals for the thermal fuse and across the terminals of the high-limit thermostat. Would you agree that it looks like our heating assembly unit is still good and that I need to look elsewhere for the reason for the heating elements not coming on? If so, what should I be looking at?
