Maytag Performa PYE2200AYW - not working

My dryer stopped last night mid cycle.  Now it is totally dead.  I have power to it, timer will tick, but no heat, no spinning, no motor hum.  I took it apart to tinker with it and found nothing really, other than it was surprisingly clean.  Belt looked very good.  I estimate it to be around 8 years old.  My question is, is there a fuse or do you think the motor blew?  I noticed if you flip up the top, in the back there looks to be a black circular, about the size of a quarter, fuse looking thing, and to the right of that is a white 1 inch rectangular fuse looking thing.  Are these replaceable?

    Can someone please describe to me how to get to the fuse? Do I unscrew the panel where the timer is? Or is it at the back? A pic will really help. Thanks much.

    Everything seems to be intact and in good condition but the motor does not move. When it is turned on, its seems like there is no power coming in so nothing happens.

    Same problem, I have power and the timer ticks but the dryer is otherwise non-responsive. I will check the fuse.

    I had the same problem. I located what fixin4years referred to. There are 2 white wires going to it, right beside each other. I disconnected power, hooked those 2 together, and plugged it in. I then tried to start it -- yup, worked. bad fuse - confirmed. Quickly unplugged/turned off (fuse is there for a reason!) yay! i almost just ordered a new motor.

Yes there is a fuse in the dryer. The black circular thing is a high limit thermostat. Beneath it is the thermal fuse. It is smaller (dime size) and is mounted to the right side of the heating element housing. It is alittle tough to see and get at. You must use the original Maytag part kit.It comes with a new high limit therm. and fuse.

My dryer stopped mid drying cycle. The breaker in

Your dryer has an overtemp safety. Called a high limit, it has 2 wires connected to it, and usually is held in place by 1 screw. There will be a couple of them, the one closest to the element will be the bad one. It looks like a suppository, you'll see if you open up the unit yourself. DISCONNECT ALL POWER BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY ELECTRICAL REPAIRS!!!!!!!!!!

Maytag performa dryer quit working

Check your breaker first and then the wiring. Check power coming from the timer next. With a load and resistance that you had, you could have tripped one of the breakers.Since you have bypassed the thermal fuse, it probably is the timer switch.
