    I also have a maytag performa pye2300ayw that wont start. Doesnt turn on at all. When I push in the knob to start, nothing happens. If this is the thermal fuse, is it something I can do myself?

    I have a Maytag PYE2300AY electric dryer and lately it has also been stopping in the middle of cycle. However, it will restart after setting (cooling??) for a period of time.

    The timer on my Maytag clicks, but no spinning or heat. Do I need part 3344 (fuse) and, if so, is the fuse located inside the silver metal disk (2-in in diameter) that surround the electrical controls in the back? The fuse doesn't correspond to anything I see on this panel.

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.

Hi,

There can be many reasons why your dryer will not start or turn...

The most common causes are the belt breaking or jumping off, or the motor going bad...

My dryer won't do anything. Maytag model PYE2300AYW REV 10, Serial 10604533ZU


First thing check the circuit breaker to see if it is tripped or if it is a fuse style if the fuse is blown. Next if that all checks out okay check the door switch and see tha the door switch is being made when the door is closed. The machine will not operate with the door open and if the switch is bad or stuck open then the machine will not work.

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

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.

How to remove lint tray receiver: maytag dryer model#pye2300ayw


Unplug first with a straight blade screwdriver, pry up on the top of the dryer where the front wall of the dryer and the top meet. there are 2 screws 1 on each side inside the dryer where the sides and front meet, remove them and unhook the wires from the door switch. the whole front will now pull out and up, now open the door remove the 2 screws at the bottom of the door opening and the whole lint tray will pull out. sounds like a lot but only takes about 5 minutes.

Maytag PYE2300AYW starts when I hold the button in, but will not stay started.


The motor will need to be replaced. There is a throw-out switch on the motor that keeps it running after you release the start button. These are generally easy to change, with the only hard part being taking the cover off and putting it back on. http://www.partstore.com/GetModel.aspx?MfgName=Maytag&BrandName=Maytag&ModelNumber=PYE2300ayw&PartCategoryName=&Keywords=motor Any of these motors listed will fit your unit.
