Hi welcome to Fixya

You must pop off the top of the dryer then remove the front after the front is off you can remove drum .
The belt goes around the drum and the motor pully and under the tentioner wheel after you get belt on replace front and top.


Thank You For Useing Fixya

When I press the start button, it hums but won't turn on, I hear clicking behind the cycle setting dial?

f you hear the motor humming and not starting at all it most likely has a severe friction problem with the drum or motor. It could possibly have some type of garment jamming the blower wheel preventing the motor from starting too.

Open the dryer door and manually rotate the dryer drum counter clockwise (CCW). It should take very little effort to rotate the drum. If it's hard to rotate that could explain why the motor hums instead of starting up. If it turns freely, shut the door and see if will start. If it still hums and not start it may have bad motor or a low voltage supply to the motor.

Maytag performa dryer wont start - probably thermal fuse right? checked door, breaker, plug, ect.. When puch in the botton to start i can hear a low humming so im sure the motor is working

The problem is likely with the centrifugal switch on the dryer motor. This switch connects the start winding of the motor which provides additional torque at startup. Once the dryer is up to speed, the switch disconnects the start winding. If it malfunctions, the dryer will not turn and the motor will hum. By spinning the drum, you are providing enough torque for the start winding to be able to take over and bring the dryer up to speed.

You may be able to solve this if you can lubricate the centrifugal switch with a spray lubricant. If not, you may have to replace the motor. I do not know if the centrifugal switch assembly can be replaced.

Maytag Dryer (PYW2300AYW) WillNot Turn On

go to enter model number and look for part 3344 you should check the continuity of your thermal fuse. The part you took off probably is part 894084 if so put it back on it's a resistor and normal no continuity can be detected in this type of component.

Dryer Starts... Then Stops!...

Sounds as if you have a bad motor. That humming is a big give away. Unless its less than 3 years. I would replace it.

Dryer won't run

Its time to call the repairman. If its the motor humming its either bad or the dryer is froze up and unable to turn causing the motor to hum. Eventually it will trip the breaker.
