Question about Maytag PYE2300AY Electric Dryer
Smells of electrical burning
Two highest probabilities are that the belt is worn and slipping on the motor pully or that the motor is drawing too high of amps, working too hard, wore out. Also if there is excessive lint in the internal air chamber this can also be a problem. To reduce the suction draft of your blower remove the lint catcher and take it to the sink. Run water into it, if there is excessive pooling of the water (water not runnig straight through then fabric softener is fouling the lint screen. Use a small brush and dish detergent to clean it and then shake off all the water and dry the screen. This wont really fix the main condition, but it will not hurt. Remember this tip on future driers and you will make the dryer blower motor last much longer and it will lower your energy consumption.

could be the board, could be a motor, could be a belt but i would run it intill something just stops or try your best to take it apart and look through things and see if you can see an indication.
