Model MDE9700AYW: I set the timer for a certain amount of time (say 30 minutes). I come back 45 minutes later and the dryer is still running. There is also a "racetrack" in the display. No error...


Instructions

1. Break your load down into smaller groups. Large, saturated blankets, duvets, blankets and other upholstery can be too heavy for the MDE9700AYW to safely dry. Dry large large items one at a time with some smaller items such socks and underwear to better balance the load. One washer load should equal one dryer load.
2. Confirm that the cycle selector has been pushed down and the dryer door is latched shut. When the dryer door is opened, the cycle is temporarily paused to protect you from injury. Press the cycle selector down to resume the drying cycle once the door has clicked closed.
3. Examine the circuit breakers or fuses in the dryer's electrical circuit. The Maytag MDE9700AYW needs two active fuses or breakers, depending on your home, to operate its electronics and spin the drum. The dryer may not spin if either one of the fuses or breakers is inactive.

My maytag performa pye2300ayw dryer will start but will not heat up. No matter how long I leave it on, it just won't heat up. what could be the source of the problem? the model number - pye2300ayw rev - 10...


You have a thermal overload switch that may be bad. It is located under the top of the dryer. Check first the breakers. Turn them off and then back on, then check the wiring in the back of the dryer and then the element itself. It may take 30 minutes to do all of this, but it will save you a lot in the long run.
