Question about Maytag PYE2300AY Electric Dryer
My guess is that the power socket in the wall for the dryer is incorrectly wired! 22 amps is about right for a functioning dryer, but not just the motor. The drum is turning, so the one belt is intact. First thing to check is the voltages at the socket. There should be 240 volts between the two slanted connections, and 120 volts between the center vertical connection (neutral/ground) and either slanted connection. I'm guessing that the 120 volt motor has 240 volts across it accounting for the fast drum speed. If the socket checks ok, check the wiring of the cord inside the dryer. The center wire of the cord should go to case ground. Hope the motor wasn't damaged.
