Maytag performa dryer PYE2300AZW

My dryer has been overheating. I checked the fuses, the thermostat, and the heating element. All the components have continuity.

I tested the leads going to the heating elements. When i put on the heat their is 120V going through the heating element and 22 Amperes going through the heating element.

The power seems to be ok, but can the motor still be causing the heating element to overheat. What test can i do to properly test the motor?

Or can it still be another problem other then other components that i checked.

Hello humberguy. From the description noteing voltage & amprege( unit not 220v) I suggest checking the air intake & excaust. duckng. A preventive maintance maybe in need. A PM would be taking the unit to a air compressor and using a hand held air gun to blow the insides out. In the drum are wings, on the out side are pluds in the drum aligned with the wings, remove the wing and remve the cloth balls. I advise you wear a mask over your face it will be dusty. Good luck & let me know if this solved the problem.

My Maytag Performa dryer is not heating at all .What should i do? Everything else works it just doesnt heat.


Hi

Replace the thermal fuse, and if possible test the heating group (thermostats and element or gas heater). You can replace the fuse straight away, or you can first test it using a multimeter set on OHMS. If the multimeter reads Ohms infinity when you touch the fuse contacts with its probes, then the fuse is gone.
If the fuse is OK, then you can have a defective thermostat or heating element (electric models), with gas models you test coils, thermostats and ignitor (flame sensor rarely fails).


After fixing the problem clean lint from air ducts, if the thermal fuse or thermostat has blown it means that there had been overheating.

I have a maytag performa electric dryer with no heat, checked fuses, replaced heat element and thermostat, any ideas


Have you checked to make certain you have the proper voltage where the dryer is plugged in? 220v? A dryer will run on 110v but requires 220v to heat. Could be a problem with the breaker in the breaker box. If you are not familiar with electricity, I suggest you find someone knowledgeable ie professonial

MY pye2300azw maytag dryer does not seem to be heating hot enough. can you suggest a solution please. Does it need a new thermostat, nothing wrong with the heating element.


Number 10 is the most likely suspect. The blower wheel tends to get wobbled out and won't send enough heat through the drum making it take twice as long to dry the clothes.themobilian_13.jpgthemobilian_14.jpgthemobilian_15.jpgthemobilian_16.jpgthemobilian_17.jpg

Will not start


it is likely the Thermal Fuse, LA 1053 kit for Performa Electric Dryers. You have to open the case, remove the drum, Loose the back panel and remove the Heater element case. The Fusible Thermostat is on mounted on the side of the heating element case.

No heat (replaced heating element and another


It sounds like you replaced the heating element and the small thing you refer to was most likely the thermal fuse. If these are the components that you replaced, and if they are indeed good, the next thing to look at if the dryer is not heating up is the high limit thermostat. It is most likely faulty if the element and thermal fuse are good. Hope this helped and best wishes. Here is a picture of a thermal fuse and high limit thermostat to help you figure out what is what.

Dryer element won't get hot


for safety reasons it has its own fuse and that may be your issue (new fuse $5)
To be safe i'd also get new thermostat ($15)

No power to dryer was working fine no warning would not start


Most likely a bad fuse. There is one above the heat element, also may have one on the blower housing. Test with an ohmmeter or bypass. Hope this helps!

Maytag Performa Pye2000ayw won't turn on-tried taping wires


If your dyrer has a thermal fuse, it will be on the blower housing (front), not on the heat element. It will be either white plastic os a button about half the size of other thermos. The fuse on the heat element will shut down the haet only. Hope this helps!
