Question about Maytag Performa PAV2200

Maytag Performa MDE3500 AYW

My electric dryer began running excessively hot last night and even began to smell like smoke. After allowing it to cool overnight I plugged it in this morning and turned the timer on. The drum immediately began to get very hot as well as the outside top of the dryer. Any advise on areas to check?

Sounds like your motor brushes are very worn.(Its a bit like grinding metal when a cars brake pads are worn.)Should only cost 10 or so pounds for new ones,access to the motor will be required.Unplug washer b4 changing.

Bad motor or you are your drum is rubbing on the maching. What does the soke smell like? Like electrical or plastic. I also recommened that you do not use this until either we can get it diagnosed for you or you call a service tech

This sounds like a cold water supply problem that's usually caused by a problem at the water inlet valve. First, remove the water supply hoses and check the small screens inside the water inlet valve. Make sure they are not clogged with rust or debris. Next, check the solenoids using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty solenoid and the water inlet valve assy will need to be replaced. I will attach a photo for reference. Hope this helps and best wishes.

Dryer stopped running with 30 minutes left and will not restart. Maytag Performa PYE2300AYW


Reset the circuit breaker for the dryer. Allow the motor to cool, It has over temperature protection that will shut down the motor.

The belt that turns the drum may have broken. I am not sure about this model, but most dryers have a limit switch on the base of the dryer next to the motor that shuts down the dryer when the belt brakes.

My Performa dryer stopped working.


Unplug the dryer.
Replace the thermal fuse and high limit switch located at the heater element.
The parts come as a set.
Raise the top lid of the dryer. The parts are at the back left side.

Performa washer smoking and smell of burnt plastic


It could be the pump or the motor overheating.
Remove rear panel, and run washer through a rinse and spin cycle.
After it has finished, unplug the washer, and feel the pump and the motor, they should be relatively cool to the touch.
If either the motor or pump feel hot, then that is probably the cause of the problem.
Also check for a worn or slipping drive belt.
Please rate my fixya solution.
Thanks.
