Question about Whirlpool LER5636P Electric Dryer

Maytag pye2300ayw runs but does not heat.

My Maytag pye2300ayw dryer tumbles but there is no heat. Last week it would not start at all so I replaced the two thermostats and it worked until today when it quit heating. However now it at least tumbles so I was wondering if a thermostat could be bad and still allow the dryer to tumble. If that is not possible then I know it is the heating element.

Maytag Dryer model number PYE2300AYW will not start.


check your fuses in the dryer their is only one fuse that could shut down the whole dryer like that. Open back panel and get a volt meter and check for continuity on the fuses. HOW? first un plug it then open back then you will see the heating element their are 2 fuses on the heating element take off wires and check those.Then if those are ok look down thier is another fuses its long white with 2 wires comming out of it with a black center that should be your problem check it repair it run it . GOOD LUCK

Maytag PYE2300AYW Dryer wont start or run. I replaced both thermal switches still nothing. What next?


Check the dryer breaker pair in the house electrical panel. Push off, then on. Try the dryer again. If works, ok. If not, recheck the breakers. If tripped again, the dryer has an internal short circuit--likely in the heating element(s). The drum must be removed to service the element(s).

My maytag performa pye2300ayw dryer will start but will not heat up. No matter how long I leave it on, it just won't heat up. what could be the source of the problem? the model number - pye2300ayw rev - 10...


You have a thermal overload switch that may be bad. It is located under the top of the dryer. Check first the breakers. Turn them off and then back on, then check the wiring in the back of the dryer and then the element itself. It may take 30 minutes to do all of this, but it will save you a lot in the long run.

Pye2300ayw Dryer will not start. I think it is a bad door switch. How can a confirm this?


Change your thermal fuse first. when thermal fuse goes bad either the whole dryer won't run or the heat element won't come on. Check out item # 3344 at www.repairclinic.com/Appliance-Parts?s=t-pye2300ayw-%3d%3d&z=100 If your thermal fuse is bad there will be no continuity through it.

Dryer runs but does not dry my cloths.


Hello, If the dryer appears to be running ok but will not heat you probably have a bad heating element or switch. Usually the heating element.
I hope this helps

Maytag dryer: pye2300ayw


yes, it will. you should be able to take off the panel on the bottom of the front of the dryer. way in the back is the heating element. do not put your hands in there with the power on, but start the dryer and look in there and you will see if the heating element comes on. it will be like looking inside your toaster.

MAYTAG PYE2300AYW ELECTRIC DRYER not heating


Check the terminal block and make sure you're getting 220. If you only get 110, the dryer will run but without heat.

Maytag PYE2300AYW starts when I hold the button in, but will not stay started.


The motor will need to be replaced. There is a throw-out switch on the motor that keeps it running after you release the start button. These are generally easy to change, with the only hard part being taking the cover off and putting it back on. http://www.partstore.com/GetModel.aspx?MfgName=Maytag&BrandName=Maytag&ModelNumber=PYE2300ayw&PartCategoryName=&Keywords=motor Any of these motors listed will fit your unit.
