Question about Maytag PYE2300AY Electric Dryer
When I start the dryer, After a will of running it trios the breaker. I blew out around the heat element and the vents, it finished that load with no problem. I put in another load and it tripped the breaker again. Do you think it is tripping the heat element limit switch. I need to know what could cause it to trip the breaker. Thank you in advance.
It sounds like the current draw is too high This would be due to overload of dryer, motor overheating binding of the drum assy.. First re level the dryer, next disconnect the power and Vacume out the lint inside around moter, try spinning the drum manually to see if it moves freely( some resistance is ok) Another possibility can be lose electrical connections on the breaker or outlet. Disconnect power before testing. Let me know if these tips helped solve issue
