PYE2300AY Dryer shuts off after just running for a few seconds

I unhooked the belt to see if it was the load on the motor and it does the same thing. Seems like it is some sensor or something that is shutting it off. My Wife said yesterday that it was smelling like burning rubber before it started this.

    I wondered about the motor but it doesn't get hot in the amount of time it takes to shut down. I think it may be the thermal cutoff, would that cause the motor to stop or just cause the heating element to stop?

    well I think you are right that it is the motor. I took the drum out so I could get to it and it is pretty tight. It isn't heating up but I guess it is just drawing too much current because it is so tight. It should spin free right?

See how hot your motor gets - it is very likely overheating ans will need to be replaced. Hope this helps!

My dryer runs a few seconds and then shuts off I can wait a few seconds then it will run again shut off after a few seconds


If you hear a humming/clicking sound from motor area you more than likely have a bad motor.
Try this test out to see if u have weak windings or relay on motor.
Open the dryer door and turn by hand the drum while machine is on ON position. And you or someone else presses the door engagement switch in. If it starts up then u have bad windings

Another thing to check is the belt safety switch. With a multi meter.
Especially if u just replaced the belt. The belt safety switch is attached to the Tensioner and motor. IT LOOKS LIKE A DOOR SWITCH SOMEWHAT a little black pc of plastic with 2 prongs going into it. Sits at bottom of motor. Under the Tensioner. Attach meter clips to the 2 prongs on switch, Then when the little white push button is pressed in it should show continuity and none when released.

Lastly check ut push start button for continuity with a meter when pushed in the on position, it may have gone bad.

The dryer runs for a few minutes then shuts off and restarts in a few more minutes8xcccxb2


Sounds like your motor is getting hot, shutting down to cool off and coming back on. This is a motor that will have to be replaced. On some models the only other thing is could be would be the thermal link that is usually located on the back of the dryer. This would definitely be the cheaper part to replace. If possible, jumper around this thermal link, if it still does the same thing you will more than likely have to replace the motor. Good luck I hope this helps.

My Maytag dryer buzzes when I push the start button. If you hold it in, the dryer will start but makes a noise, almost like a bad belt. After a few minutes the dryer will shut itself off and will not...


Remove the belt from the motor and push 'start'. If the motor makes loud noises, squeals, or the shaft has side play in several directions, then it probably is the motor. Replace it. If the the motor runs quietly, then check the drum by hand to see if it is making excessive noise while turning. There should be a little resistance to turning, but not real difficulty. Hope this helps.

Dryer will not turn


There is a belt like a fan belt that goes around the outer tub and onto a pulley that turns the tub, it may have slipped off, you should be able to take the top off of the dryer to check it.

Only turns with light load


If this is not turning with a heavy load it can be one of or a few different things. The motor may be going bad and cant handle the heavy load or the drum belt may be slipping or the dryer drum wheels where the dryer rides on may be worn out.

If its the wheels the machine will be making a sort of a grinding sound when it runs and the dryer drum will be loose and wobbly inside the machine. The drum wheels and belt are cheapest, probably less than 10 bucks for both.
You will need to remove the front of the machine and remove the drum to get to the wheels and belt. It shouldnt take more than 1/2 hour or so to do this job.

The motor is another thing. 150.00 for the part, hours of labor and electrical connections. Clearly not worth it unless you have access to a cheap parts supplier. Check ebay for appliance parts suppliers. They usually buy up manufacturers surplus parts and sell them for 1/2 of what they originally sold for.
