Maytag Bravo MED6400TB0 electric dryer no heating

4 posts in this topic

Have this Maytag dryer MED6400TB0 that is not heating.It will come on,the drum turns,but will not heat.I have removed the back and checked the element,the fuses,and all of the limit thermostats,everything checks ok.The only thing that is not checking out is the thermister next to the thermal fuse on the blower.Would this keep it from heating?Also what else should I be checking to see why it won't heat?Your help would be appricated.Thank you.

If the thermistor doesn't check out as good then replace it. There are 2 thermistors on your dryer. Also check for 240 volts at outlet and dryer connections.

Here's your heater strip chart:

Note the thermistor resistances are given.

Can also disconnect the common wire from the heating element, secure it, and run the dryer. See with side of the heating element circuit isn't giving you 120vac: either the control side or the motor side. Whichever is missing the 120vac is the side with the problem.
