SOURCE: how to remove lint tray receiver: maytag dryer model#pye2300ayw

Unplug first with a straight blade screwdriver, pry up on the top of the dryer where the front wall of the dryer and the top meet. there are 2 screws 1 on each side inside the dryer where the sides and front meet, remove them and unhook the wires from the door switch. the whole front will now pull out and up, now open the door remove the 2 screws at the bottom of the door opening and the whole lint tray will pull out. sounds like a lot but only takes about 5 minutes.

SOURCE: How do I remove the lint trap holder to clean out the lint inside

















































The font panel must be removed. This may be done by removing the control console (open upper cabinet doors to find screws behind the console). The screws along the top of the lower front panel are easily accessible. Disconnect the two interlock switches, remove the grounding clip attached to the bulkhead & lift the panel off the two lower clips. Inside the panel is a housing that leads to the exhaust blower. It will be packed with lint that may be hardened like papier mache. Just clean out the mess & reverse the process to replace the parts.

SOURCE: How do I remove the lint housing of Maytag Neptune dryer

Hi Kate,

Gaining access to the lint housing sounds more difficult than it is. As a matter of fact, I could get to it and have it back together in the time it takes me to type out the instructions!

Tools needed;
1.) Phillips screwdriver
2.) 5/16" nut driver or socket

UNPLUG THE DRYER FIRST!!! Or risk a funky new hair-do...

Open the door and remove the four screws at the hinges then remove the door. Opposite the hinges, you'll see 4 more screws, remove these too. Now grasp the front panel on both sides near the top and pull it toward you. Lean it out to about a 45 degree angle and lift it off the clips that are holding it (at the bottom).
Now you'll see the lint trap housing. Look around the housing, you'll probably see a yellow wire near the 5 o'clock position, remove it. Now, on either side, you'll see four 5/16" screws... Don't remove the top ones, just remove the three below the top ones. You can now pull the entire panel off of the frame for cleaning.
Rebuild in the reverse order (and don't forget to re-connect that yellow wire!)

There ya go! Please don't forget to rate this as "FixYa", OK

If you go from the top. The belt goes down the drum, between the drum and idler pulloy,under the idler then pull it over to the top of the motor pully and loop over it. When it comes out from under the motor pully it goes under the drum and over to the other side of the drum, and back up to the top of the drum. I hope this makes since.
Please rate solution if helpful

My maytage dryer mde308dayw drys the clothes, but it takes a longtime. The dryer heats, but water builds up around the inside of the door of the dryer.


You will need to clean the vent system on your dryer. Lint buildup restricts the airflow and will keep the clothes from drying.

Maytag dryer mde308dayw won't turn on


Hello,

The most probable thing thats wrong causing the dryer to not start is going to be a blown thermal fuse,when it goes out it cuts power to the motor circuit...do you have a display on the front yet it wont start???? or no display??

If you do have a display yet the dryer wont start it very likely will be the thermal fuse,it fits into the blower housing below where the lint filter fits into inside of the door,or depending on your model it will be in the rear but in any case it will be in the blower housing below where the lint filter fits all be it in the front or rear, To access it to check it remove the small lower front panel or the rear panel if it comes off(if not its going to be in the front) and it will be on the top of the blower housing,to check it measure it for continuity (ohm it out) with zero ohms resistiance.
This is what it looks like in the pictures below,either one of these two styles.
If that turns out to be the problem be sure to take apart the blower asm. and clean all lint from it and also check the venting from the back of the dryer all the way to where it exits the house....since the usual reason the thermal fuse goes out is because of poor airflow because of built up lint/blocked vent.

I have a May Tag dryer which blows the Thermal Fuse.


I am not 100% sure, but I think that the model that maytag had with that dryer. When I was working for my local dealer I had to change several of those, and it about 2 weeks time they blew.

Maytag Electric Dryer MDE308DAYW doesn't turn on at all when pressing the button


Since the vent was filled with lint I would check the High Limit termal fuse located on the front of the heater asm. It is best to replace the fuse and thermostat. These parts are part of a kit that can be purchased from your local supplier. The heater asm is located in trhe bottom left of the dryer. and looks like this
