I have a Maytag dryer model PYE4557AYW that stopped in the middle of the operation. I have tested the outlet and it had power. I thought it was bad wires in the power cord so I bought a new one and replaced it. However, it still did not operate. I also tested the door switch but no light. Is there still a way to repair it?

Item 5 in the diagram below is a thermal fuse, this will keep the unit from powering up, this is located on the heater of the unit. It is part number LA-1053, You can order the parts you need from the following places,,, or, all of these places offer easy returns and reasonable prices for thier items.
