Question about Maytag MAV3905EWW 13 Cycle Washer

3 Answers

Dryer doesn't work.

I have a Performa oversized Capacity Plus Model #PYE3360AYW Rev. 10 Serial # 10345469AN
I dryed 1 item (it was a place mat)3 times and when it didn't dry I put a towel in with it. It then dryed. Shortly after it was done I tried turning on the dryer and it would not work. I have tried several time since then. The dryer light doesn't even come on when the door is open. We checked the breaker & it is on. Power is getting to the dryer, we tested it, There is no sound coming from it. Is there a reset button? We didn't see any wires burnt out on the back. What else could it be?

    Exact same symptoms as peggysue36. Don't understand the "setting" suggestion. There is no audible start when the Start button pushed in. It's as if some kind of starting device was broken

Had the same thing happen on mine about a year ago. It was a fuse inside the dryer. Can't remember the part number, though. Sorry.

Where is the model number on maytag quiet plus ii washer


Posted on November 16, 2012 M/F FREE VIDEOS, RESOURCES & RECOMMENDATIONS *NEW* Search Parts For Your Maytag Washer On RepairClinic Every Maytag appliance, including Oversize Capacity Plus and Quiet Plus appliances such as washers and dryers, is manufactured with a product label that displays details about the appliance such as its model and serial numbers. The model number is typically located on the top left corner of the label. Although the location of the product labels varies by appliance type and model, finding the model number for your Oversize Capacity Plus and Quiet Plus appliance shouldn't take long. Maytag only attaches the product label to certain areas of an appliance. *Open the lid on your Oversize Capacity Plus or Quiet Plus washer and look for the product label on the inside bottom right corner of the lid. *Check for the label behind the control panel on the top back of your washer. *Look on the back main portion of your washer, also known as the base frame, on the left.

I have a maytag performa electric dryer model #pye2300ayw, rev 10 -- sometimes I need to run the dryer 3-4 times to get a load dried. I checked the outside vent and there is alot of hot air coming out, the...


We had this same problem recently. Don't know if your problem is the same, but I am sure it could be.
While we did have hot air coming from the outside vent, it was still a restricted vent duct that was our problem. I went to Lowes and bought a dryer vent cleaning kit for about $40 (I figured I needed to do this anyway, as I'd been hearing about how many housefires are caused by the heat buildup from poorly breathing vent tubes/ducts), and cleaned the whole length of the duct (and replaced the plastic flexi-tube inside with a metal one).
I had thought I had good air-flow before doing this, but oh my gosh, what a difference this made! And I couldn't believe the pile of nasty, damp lint that came out!!
Anyway, our dryer immediately went from requiring 2-3 cycles to dry a load of clothes, to doing a great job the first time through! Perhaps the same solution would help you. I hope so!

I have a gas dryer. Dryer heats up but doesn't dry clothes completely all the time. Sometimes I have to run it 2 -3 times. What do i need to replace? Maytag Performa Model # PYG2000AWW REV. 10 Serial #...


I got cut short.. and disconnected...so if this is a repeat, please forgive me:
Dryers 101
1. Heat alone does not dry clothes
2. Air alone does not dry clothes.
3. Only dry, heated air passing over and through clothes will dry them...

I recommend the following:
Set the dryer for "Air Dry".
Go outside and check the dryer exhaust.
Confirm that the exhaust is spewing out lots of air.

If it is, then you have a need for a technician to inspect everything - in person.

If it is NOT, the you need to determine the clog - or reason that air is not moving through your dryer, clothes and exhaust system.

ONLY 2 possibilities exist:
1. Fan motor is frozen and needs replacement....or
2. Duct/exhaust is clogged with lint and will not allow air to pass through.

Please check for both, clean/clear/fix as needed.

I have a May Tag dryer which blows the Thermal Fuse.


I am not 100% sure, but I think that the model that maytag had with that dryer. When I was working for my local dealer I had to change several of those, and it about 2 weeks time they blew.

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.
