I have a Maytag Atlantis dryer which has stopped running.

Resolved Question:

I have a Maytag Atlantis dryer which has stopped running. There was a burning smell prior to ti's having stopped. There is no sign of scorching on any of the wires I can see (can't see the motor) and the interior light is on when the door is open. Any way I can evaluate the condition of the timer? Doesn't seem to be aany ticking sound coming form the timer.

# XXXXX on the diagram above, you will need to remove the front panel to get to this # XXXXX on this diagram, once you get to it unplug the machine and take the two wires off the thermostat, Part 516650and tape them together see if it starts if it does replace the thermal fuse, thanks Bryan

Bryan, Can I get to the fuse w/o removing the drum?
Expert:  Bryan replied 7 years ago.
I beleive you can it should be right in the front on the blower assembly. sometimes its on the top of the blower and you kinda have to look with a flashlight in between the bootom of the drum and the top of the blower,
