Question about Maytag PYE2300AY Electric Dryer
My clothes dryer, Maytag PYE2300AYW starts when I hold the button in, but will not stay started. It happened after moving it to a new house. The dryer venting is working as I can see and feel the air at the outside vent when I have the button held in. It also is generating heat. The drum spins and all is working as I would expect, but when i release the start button it stops running. When I release the button, the timer is still running (low ticking sound) and will continue to as it had previously when I stopped the dryer by opening the door.
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.
