It would be a simple dryer belt that has come loose or has broken. usually for most modles the belt will cost between 10 and 20 dollars

    they are not hard to put on, but can be tricky if you have never seen a dryer belt set up.
    before buying a new belt, open the door and try to turn the drum by hand, if there is little or no resistance it is definatly the belt.
    or better yet pull the front panel off to visually see if the belt is broken or just has come undone.
    instructions for most dryers.
    if lint trap is ontop - remove
    remove 2 screws at lint trap
    if lint trap in door use flat blade screwdriver or putty knife to locate and push in clips that hold the top in to open the lid. like a hood of a car
    wow.. this will be long, much easier if i get the model
    top mount control or front, same as where the lint trap is located

    usually when you buy a belt, it will come with instructions for the belt pattern.

Having problem with my Electric Maytag. I push the start button and nothing happens.. The model bumber is pyet344ayw..


Have you checked the circuit breaker? I would start there. Dryers run off 220v, and sometimes only one leg of the breaker trips. so you need to flip the breaker all the way off, and then back on. sometimes the breaker feels off when it's not. make sure you completely trip it off then back on. Does the dryer light work? is there any indication that it's getting some power? If the breaker is fine and your still not getting power, then the next step is to make sure you have power coming to the plug behind the dryer. At this point you should only continue if your comfortable working with electricity. Once you move the dryer you can check the outlet with a meter, or other circuit tester. If you got power here, then you'll need to start checking things on the dryer. you can remove the plate where the cord goes into the dryer and look for loose or burnt wiring there. If that looks ok, then you'll need to start taking the dryer apart; front panel, top, back, etc, as needed to access the wiring and controls. From here you can trace the wiring from the supply to the controls and to the motor, etc. look for anything burn, If nothing looks out of place you can start checking temp sensors, or fusable links. If this is above your head, then stop where your not comfortable and have checked by a service tech.

My maytag pyet344ayw dryer will turn on but no heat comes out


Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.
