Question about Maytag PYE2300AY Electric Dryer
My dryer stopped working, I went to use it and it does nothing. I checked the breaker, and it was okay, it does not hum it does not do anything, there is nothing moving or trying to move, it is as if it has no power. I checked the outlet and it has power going to it. I also checked the closed door switch and that isn't the problem either. Is there some kind of reset on the motor that I could press? Here is the information on the dryer: Maytag, model number: PYE2300AYN Serial number: 10410219AC Rev. 10 I am capable of fixing things, i just wanted to know any possible info before I take apart the dryer. Thank You, Jeremey
Check the following to address this issue.
1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power with a voltmeter or by plugging something else in. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.
2. Door switch / Door switch actuator lever
The dryer would not start with a broken door switch. Replace the door switch if found defective.
Most dryers have a door switch actuator lever - when you close a dryer door, it presses against the lever, which actuates the door switch. If the lever is broken, the switch would not activate and the dryer would not start. Replace the lever, if broken.
Note: Door switch actuator lever usually comes with the door switch assembly and it is recommended to get the whole assembly since there is almost no price difference between the door switch assembly and just the lever. Check your model for more details.
