Question about Maytag PYE2300AY Electric Dryer
The dryer will start and run about 1 min. Then it cuts off. Some of the light around the dial flash
Bad motor.Replacing the motor is not that difficult and cheaper than buying a new appliance. We know the timer is ok and the fuse is not blown. The heat does come on and the door switch is ok. All it can be is the motor. You can sometimes get the motor going by oiling it. I drill out each end bell with a 1/8th inch drill bit being careful not to hit the shaft. I then pour in some heat resistance zoomoil. I work the motor free and oil the wheels and check the front glides. Oil the idler and hope for the best. Total cost to you $2 for the zoom-oil. Any ace hardware store carrys it. Hey it is worth a shot ain't it?
