Check circuit breaker(s). 220 volt will be controlled by two breakers.  If one of the two has tripped, dryer will still "run" but  heating element will not warm up with only half(120v) of the 220v.

Maytag pye2300ayw will not starte


You need to make sure that you have 220 volts to the dryer. If you do, then unplug the dryer. Lift the lid of the dryer by taking a putty knife and putting it under the lid of the dryer. There are two clips that you need to push in then the lid of the dryer will lift up. In the back left hand corner of the dryer, you will see the heating element. Beside that you will see a thermostat and thermal fuse. check both of them for continuity. Most likely the thermal fuse is bad. If it is bad replace it and clean your dryer vent. The thermal fuse breaks when the dryer gets too hot. It is a safety switch.

Maytag Dryer model number PYE2300AYW will not start.


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

Maytag PYE2300AYW Dryer wont start or run. I replaced both thermal switches still nothing. What next?


Check the dryer breaker pair in the house electrical panel. Push off, then on. Try the dryer again. If works, ok. If not, recheck the breakers. If tripped again, the dryer has an internal short circuit--likely in the heating element(s). The drum must be removed to service the element(s).

I have a maytag performa electric dryer that's giving out no heat. model# pye2300ayw. what do I do?


could be three things. 1st) 240v should enter the unit. if 120v is missing then the unit will run but will not heat (on an electric dryer).
2nd) the thermal cut-off is not showing continuity and therefore not allowing voltage to travel to the element. 3rd) could be the element itself not showing continuity.

Pye2300ayw Dryer will not start. I think it is a bad door switch. How can a confirm this?


Change your thermal fuse first. when thermal fuse goes bad either the whole dryer won't run or the heat element won't come on. Check out item # 3344 at www.repairclinic.com/Appliance-Parts?s=t-pye2300ayw-%3d%3d&z=100 If your thermal fuse is bad there will be no continuity through it.

Dryer runs but does not dry my cloths.


Hello, If the dryer appears to be running ok but will not heat you probably have a bad heating element or switch. Usually the heating element.
I hope this helps

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.

Maytag electric dryer not heating


Check the following to address this issue.


1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses. An electric dryer uses two circuit breakers or fuses, and if only one of two is tripped or blown, the dryer might still run but not heat. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

2. Heating element
A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Maytag dryer runs, does not heat


check for continuity in the thermal fuse, also check heating element. make sure you have disconnected the power first. if this is a 220 volt machine make sure you are getting 220 to the machine. if one leg of the voltage has dropped out the motor will run but unit will not heat
