Question about Maytag PYE2300AY Electric Dryer
Model # PYET244AYW, Serial # 15438727GL Problem started with auto dry cycle not advancing - dryer would run forever in that cycle unless shut off manually and the clothes were so hot I couldn't take touch them right away (I don't know if it was because the dryer was running non-stop for 8 hours). Dryer ran this way for about a week - I dried in timed mode but my teenage son would forget and put it on auto dry sometimes. Then I went to start the dryer and nothing. It will no longer turn on. How can I tell if it is the timer or thermostat/thermal fuse?
Check the blower wheel, sounds to me like it is loose on the blower motor, common on these dryers. One sure sign would be a warped filter and a rusted top. The blower aint putting out enough and the dryer is over heating .

Replace the thermal fuse and the high limit switch.
They come as a set.
Clean the auto dry sensor with rubbing alcohol.
