Question about Maytag PYE2300AY Electric Dryer

Maytag PYE2300AYW will not start/heat

Our dryer will not start, but has power at pig tail terminals on back of dryer. It acts like there is no power. The heating element does not come on, the dryer motor will not start or turn.

It has 120+ volts at both hot leads coming into back of dryer. Don't know where to check next. Is this one of the sensors gone bad and if so how do I check. Door sensor seems fine and still does not help to bypass it.

It's not a sensor problem. It's a problem with the power supply. Please check the connectivity of the power supply board. Check blow fuse and other electrical components.

If it doesn't work at all check these

Power from the house Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? If you plug something else into the outlet, does it work? If not, check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.

Door switch If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. 

Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. 

If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse to put the dryer back into operation. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.) 

Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks. In this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the wire is attached.

Motor working but no hot air


Without a model number.... It is difficult for me to give you an exact solution. Some simple things to check first.
1. Shut off the dryer CB by pushing it hard to OFF and then back to on. Occasionally only one breaker will trip for mysterious reasons.
2. If the dryer has a pig tail cord... remove the plug from the outlet recepticle and inspect the pins for any signs of heat. Also inspect the terminal block on the dryer side of the cord. A loose connection on the terminal block can cause havoc with a dryer. The terminals heat up.. wires burn.. etc.
3. Then we get into:
a. cycle thermostats... Location unknown without a model number
b. motor switch
c. high limit thermostat or thermistor
d. termp control
e. heating element
f. timer or control PCB

At this time I would start looking at the thermostats, heating element or the power source.
Do the CB reset first.....

If you do the first few steps above and still have the problem respond with a model number and I wil help you.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

check your fuses in the dryer their is only one fuse that could shut down the whole dryer like that. Open back panel and get a volt meter and check for continuity on the fuses. HOW? first un plug it then open back then you will see the heating element their are 2 fuses on the heating element take off wires and check those.Then if those are ok look down thier is another fuses its long white with 2 wires comming out of it with a black center that should be your problem check it repair it run it . GOOD LUCK

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.

MAYTAG PYE2300AYW ELECTRIC DRYER not heating


Check the terminal block and make sure you're getting 220. If you only get 110, the dryer will run but without heat.
