In Topic: maytag dryer MEDC400VWO, wired wrong. starts then turns off

Ok, maybe we need to start over. Daughter's father in-law hooked up power cord to dryer incorrectly. He hooked the black-line-120 to the neutral connector. Power cord now is properly connected. Line-n-line    red- white- black. Wires coming to power strip on dryer corresponds to wires coming from dryer cord. Red to red- white to white-black to black and green wire is connected to the ground on the dryer frame. Wall outlet is ok. I checked it and so did apartment complex maintenance department. Now, installed new motor and the same thing happened again when i started the dryer. Thermal protector made a loud buzzing noise and i turned it back off before it tripped out. Is the light working on the dryer? The bulb blew out and the socket got burned around the threads and has to be replaced if i can get one today but can check and see if there is power coming to the wires if not. If there is power to it then what else can be the problem? The timer? Maybe? Unfortunately the dryer is not at my house and my computer is at my house so have go there to check it out.

Will have to get a bulb and new socket as the socket that was there burned on the side(negative or neutral) where the threads are when it blew out.  Didn't think a bulb would cause this kind of problems. Will update. Thank you!

Well,installed new motor and still a problem. Was sure that was it. The thermal protector still makes the same noise but turned it off before it tripped because i knew what the noise was. So, what else can be the problem? The light did blow out but after in ran a couple times while tripping the thermal switch on the motor. Have checked the heater and it isn't shorted out and the can't really find any shorts. Any help would be appreciated.

I tried to get it out but the blower fan wouldn't come off. Going to have to cut the shaft to get it out. I did figure out it was a left handed tread but the plastic just broke off. Thank you. Robert
