Magic Chef Laundry Parts Model CYE3005AYW

This link has a better schematic. Note the thermal fuse. Check it first.
If it is open you need to determine why it opened. Is the exhaust pipe clogged or does it have to many elbows or is it too long.
4 elbows is about equal to a clogged pipe.
Is there something wrong with the thermostat that caused it to overheat?

Kinda tricky but you reach in and grab the idler making sure the belt aint twisted, Pull it far enough to loop the belt on the idler and let er go. Give it a few turns to make sure it ain't twisted. Made a phone vid with my bud Robert:

This could be a few things. The idler pulley or drum rollers are the likely problem. Both are easy to check and replace. The belt should be replaced at the same time. Here is a couple links that should help

Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication, or maybe your drum belt has slipped off of the idler arm pulley.

Note: This method works with most front loading machines.

Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer.
Note: Some tops hinge and tilt backwards so they do not have to be removed and the electrical console with stay with the lid.
Also remove the lint filter and the screws holding the lint filter housing in place.
Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt. Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm pulley and motor.Now is a good time to replace the front felt seal on the drum if it needs to be replaced. Be sure to use a good grade of weatherproof cement on the seal to glue it to the drum, sometimes the glue is furnished with the seal.
Now is also a good time to check the belt to see if it has slipped off of the idler arm pulley and also to check the belt condition for wear.
Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots or wear on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.

Check to make sure you are getting full 220 Volt power to the dryer, if you are then:
Sounds like your problem may be with the heating coil.
Try to locate the air duct going from the blower to the drum. Normally inside the air duct you will find the heating coil and the thermostats/thermistor. Once you have located the heating coil, remove the two wires from it and check the coil with an ohm meter across the two terminals of the coil.
You should read continuity across the terminals, if not you will need to replace the coil as it is faulty.
If the heating coil is ok, then:
You can check the thermostat/thermistor by removing the two wires and taping them together with electrical tape. If the coil heats up then replace the thermostat/thermistor.
This could cause a FIRE, as you have removed the safety of overheat from the machine.

Good Luck, Hope this helps

Thank you
