Dryer cut off mid-cycle and won't cut back on. I've tried everything I can think of, not sure what the problem is.


If it is an all electric dryer, than check the breaker. if it gets hot and won't turn then it may only be receiving half power. Good luck

Maytag washer squeaks when spin cycle stops


We have a Maytag Performa G3300 that we bought on 8/13/2001. It still works great, but on 2/25/10 it stopped heating. We found that by removing the front panel and vacuuming the accumulated lint on the inside of the dryer and the door, the problem was resolved. There were no parts to replace, just vacuuming.

Maytag Performa will not come on. Nothing happens


Burned Thermal Cut Off thermostat. at the bootom of heater housing, which means you have clogged vent as the root of your problem, probably it was taking long time to dry prior to your experiencing dryer not running.

Dryer not getting enought airflow to outside dryer vent


Normally it is six feet and not more than two bends, if it has been doing this you have buildup in the ducts and need to clean the ducts. I would suggest you make a new hole to address the problem. Also if you have a plastic pipe sometimes they develope a flap those blocks or slows the air down you can’t see this unless it is in dry mode. Any blockage will slow the air down allowing particles to drop down and gradually plug the vent, if the bends are too tight it to will slow down air flow and cause the same thing I suggest you cut the length of the hole to stop this problem if you can, it is not hard to do and I can give you the instructions if you post here.

Maytag performa dryer doesn't fully heat


A couple of suggestions. STOP, be sure the gas it turned off before disconnecting the line. Move it to an open area and check all venting. A good cleaning makes a huge difference. I believe your problem to be the heating coil is on it's way out, "works sometime". Write down the Make, Model, Seriel Number & Year of MFG...someone may ask for it..Check Your local appliance store for price & availablity Easy to replace on most model dryers.
When reattaching the gas line, be safe not to overtighten the coupler. A safe test for leaks is NOT a match... a drop or two of dishsoap around the fittings will bubble if it is not sealed. Good Luck

No heat from dryer.


Do not buy or use a maytag performa dryer model number pye2300ay at all. I fyou have one unplug it and take to the landfill or scrap yard. They are complete junk and nothing but a hassle. One problem after the other on this model no matter what you do. they are complete trash and a waste of your money.
