Question about Maytag Performa PAV2200

1 Answer

My Performa dryer stopped working.

We dryed a load of clothes last night, and then this morning nothing. We put a load in the dryer, and nothing. There is power getting to the dryer, and the door latch is secure. Nothing is working. We are in the military and have been at our current duty assignment for approximately 1 year, and the dryer has worked great until today.

    the fellow IN FRONT OF ME MAY BE RIGHT BUT from WHAT i BELIEVE YOUR SAYING IS 1-its 220v electric dryer? sorry about the cap lock was on ; 2 -you have power - which means either you have 1 line of 220 v comming in or both lines.

    If you check power to ground it will mislead you. check across line L1 to L2 and L1 - N and L2 - N then if you have a goound L1 - Ground and L2 to ground and post me the readings, you should read (if your in USA) L1 - L2 220 = 245Vac; L1 -N & L2 - N 110 - !28V And L1 & L2 to Ground 110 to 128V Any readings beyond these and you need to reset the breaker even if 1 is reading correctly turn it off and back on then retry it.

    If it was the thermal link like the fellow said above it would do more than just protect the heating circut and it may indeed have one for that reason. Check power to the cord connection after checking the wall outlet. If you have power to this point He may well be correct.

Unplug the dryer.
Replace the thermal fuse and high limit switch located at the heater element.
The parts come as a set.
Raise the top lid of the dryer. The parts are at the back left side.

Samsung DV210AGW/XAA Dryer, drum wont turn nor heat up


hi all, thanks for your comments. to note, it's my dryer not my washer so the suggested solutions wont work. Also, forgot to note, the unit is only 14 months old and just out of warranty. What I've done so far:
- vacuumed the filter
- striped the dryer, meaning removed top. front and small exhaust panel in the back
- vacuumed everything
- checked the belt, tight, not loose, broken or off the roles
- child safty not enguaged, toggled it anyway to be safe
- the checked micro switch next to belt by motor, not engaged
put it all back, turned on with nothing, tried every setting in auto and manual tied high to low temps and times, the time is noted, such as 40 min, but does not time down, over time, the unit sound the I'm done tone, if left as is, continues to chime then end like it did something. all along, the drum never rotated nor did it heat up.
Does one impact the other, such as if the drum does not roll then the heater wont start or vise-a-versa. Could the control panel have taken a hit or are there sensors that might have shut down to prevent the unit from starting are there fuse's that I didn't see that might have been tripped.

My dryer is taking to long to dry clothes and the setting dial moves very slowly if at all.


Make sure the exhaust vent is free and clear. Lint build-up can cause it to take longer to dry clothes. Also, try putting the timer on another setting to see if it makes a difference. If you are using "Auto", try putting the setting on a manual time setting to see if that helps. You may have a bad timer or bad moisture sensors.

Whirlpool AWZ410 Washer/Dryer Washes But Will Not Dry!


I have the same problem. The half load / drying button is pushed in; the drying time set; I've reduced the load to almost nothing, but it won't dry. I've tried numerous cycles. The clothes spin, but are still damp at the end.

How would I go about checking my lid switch or fixing my clutch, if that's the problem?

Spinning fast and furious, just doesn't wring clothes dry


It sounds like you need a water pump!
See if it's pumping water next time you do load by looking at the discharge hose going to the drainage pipe and get back to me!

Maytag Performa Dryer Mod PYE4500AYW Has power but will not start


check your door switch. if it is ok, get this kit part number LA-1053. This is a very common solution for this dryer. the thermostat fix kit will contain a thermostat and two other parts....one is for gas and the other is for electric. just read the instructions and you will know what one is for your dryer. these parts can be accessed by lifting the lid and looking to the rear of the cabinet past the drum. MAKE SURE TO UNPLUG THE DRYER FIRST

Mildew/Stagnant water smell in washer


you know, this does happen.

run it on a full cycle, warm, with either of these in solution.

baking soda, at 1/10 concentration

non chlorine bleach, at 1/6 concentration

you most likely need to do this more than once, until your nose is happy.

Also, consider doing this at least once every 200 wash cycles.

essential oils have same effect, and do a nice anti microbial as well.

we did this in commercial laundries all the time, as part of standard health code compliance issues.
