Identification of a Maytag dryer model number
« on: February 08, 2022, 08:52:59 AM »

I was recently given a Maytag electric dryer for possible repair that was possibly repaired or repair was attempted by a previous owner. The unit was diagnosed and repaired as the problem was a thermal fuse. The drum also had a tumbler paddle missing which I replaced with a  similar spare I had in my junk box. The face section where the ID tag is normally located was replaced  with a new one by a previous person and although I was able to repair the electrical problem easily I would like to be able to identify this unit for a future owner. The data sheet inside the control panel has no model number on it. It has a number on the bottom  which is 6 3401260. This is a fairly new dryer of 27" width and the face of the control panel has a timer knob/control,  a start button, and a temperature selector knob. It also has the designation  "Commercial Quality"/Super Capacity/QUIET SERIES/ AUTO DRY CONTROL/7 CYCLES. If anyone can help identify this model it would be appreciated.

Simple solution. Pull the part number from the timer since that should be close to model specific then go here https://www.reliableparts.com/ plug in the part number, click the link to see what models it fits them copy those and look at the consoles😊
