My dryer quit working in the middle of a cycle. Dont know what happen. Its a Maytag PYE 3360AYW dryer, we've had it for awhile.


Disconnect power38732b7.jpg882727e.jpge4ad6bc.jpg58c0a23.jpgThat thermal will blow and kill power to the door switch circuit. The dryer will no longer function till you replace the thermal fuse. 0bdf7e1.jpgFailure to temove lint will cause continued thermal fuse replacement.

Location of Thermal Fuse


The thermal fuse is located near the heating element. The part number for the replacement kit is LA-1053. You can view an illustrated parts break down of your dryer at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and locate item 5 under the "Heater" section. Pay close attention to the instructions in the thermal fuse replacment kit. One thermostat is for a GAS dryer, one is for an ELECTRIC dryer. Read the instructions and make sure you use the correct one. If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Maytag Performa Electric Dryer will not turn on


Check the following to address this issue.


1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power with a voltmeter or by plugging something else in.

2. Door switch / Door switch actuator lever
The dryer would not start with a broken door switch. Replace the door switch if found defective.

Most dryers have a door switch actuator lever - when you close a dryer door, it presses against the lever, which actuates the door switch. If the lever is broken, the switch would not activate and the dryer would not start. Replace the lever, if broken.

Note: Door switch actuator lever usually comes with the door switch assembly and it is recommended to get the whole assembly since there is almost no price difference between the door switch assembly and just the lever. Check your model for more details.

3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.

4. Timer/control
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

Maytag pye/g2300. dryer will not start.


A thermal fuse will not conduct electricity if it is bad. Take it off and check it with a continuity meter.
