Question about Maytag PYE2300AY Electric Dryer

1 Answer

DRYER DOES NOT DO ANYTHING

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

    I figured out the problem, it was the thermal fuse, I used 2 gator clips attached to a single wire and bypassed the fuse and it worked, I have ordered the part for it and it cost me $30. I do not recommend using the dryer until the part is replaced because you can start a fire. Just a FYI.It seems like it is a simple install... thanks for the help.

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.

Dryer wouldn't work last week. Found the Thermal Fuse with no continuity and replaced it. After drying one load of clothes yesterday, dryer won't work again. I suspect the thermal fuse again. What else ...


Or your breaker. The dryer will work just won't heat with the thermal cutoffs or element or the breaker. Dryer won't do anything if the thermal fuse is bad. You might also want to check the outlet from L1 to N and L2 to N for 110 on each side. Good luck.

Dryer stop working


Check the breaker for the dryer power. The breaker may have tripped or lost half of the power supply.

Dryer won't turn on...


Try pushing the breaker pair off, then on and re-check the dryer. If still nothing, pull the power plug and check the two slanted slots for ~220 volts AC. If you don't have access to a voltmeter, or a friend with one, call an electrician to check. If you read the voltage stated, then the problem is within the dryer. Check the back of the machine for a reset button.

Dryer was working the just stopped and won't start back


check your main breaker box first, see if it tripped, if the breaker looks okay then turn off the breaker for the dryer and reset the breaker switch, if this still doesn't work then a fuse has popped on the circuit board.

Dryer shut off towels were not yet dry, turned dial to restart dryer acts as if it isn't getting power I closed door and pushed start button. Nothing! Checked breakers and power cord at outlet all checked...


Hello mdonettaYou said,
Dryer shut off towels were not yet dry, turned dial to restart dryer acts as if it isn't getting power I closed door and pushed start button. Nothing! Checked breakers and power cord at outlet all checked okay. Any ideas.

yes, try unplugging the power cord or turning off the breaker for 5 minutes. Either will due. Some times the system needs to be reset!
If this does not work there are internal fuses that can be replaced!

Let me know how it goes!
