Question about Maytag PYE2300AY Electric Dryer

1 Answer

My door on the dryer is letting out moisture. It seems to be bowed out. I put a new screw into the one that was lost but it is not repaired. What do I do? This is a Maytag dryer LDE8704ACE. It has a front loading door. Moisture seems to come out the space at the bottom of the door. It takes a very long time to dry clothes.

There is a front panel seal ($3.11) and a door seal ($3.20) that you can replace. If the hinges are not worn out, these two parts should fix the dryer. If you go to www.appliancepartspro.com and enter your model number, you will see every part inside your dryer. you can order the parts from this site also.

How do you install a new moisture sensor? I have the part, but no instructions.


Un-plug the dryer
The moisture sensor snaps in place, by looking at the new one you should see witch end has the release arm that you pry back to remove the old one. Insert a small screw diver or paper clip in the opening to release the clip. When removing the sensor be carefull not to let the two wires connected to it to fall back into the machine.

That being said, the moisture sensor is merely two strips of metal and can't realy go bad. Clean the strips with white vinegar or steel wool then test the dyer.

Too few clothes in the dryer or light items dryed with heavy items (T-shirts with bath towels for ex.) can cause the dryer to misread the dryness of the laundry.

What is the dryer doing to make you suspect the sensor? I have repaired these Bosh dryers for 9 years and only replaced one sensor becase it was physicaly damaged

hi - the beeps are an indications the door has not closed proper - It will seem the door switch could be faulty?

you could try adjustments - door hinge cover has door switch behind - loosen and see if seats better. You may have to replace the door switch mechanism to fix the problem.

Asko Dryer #7305 and F5 code...


Hi, Based on the explaination in your post I guess the unit will operate without anything in the dryer, correct ? If that is the case if you remove the lower panel you will reveal a plastic cover over the blower housing. Located on the housing you will find the moisture sensor usually hidden under some black puddy. Remove the gum type puddy and there you will find the sensor held in place. Remove the sensor and clean it out best as you can. Re-install the moisture sensor and give it a test. If that fails to remedy the problem you may indeed require a new sensor. Let me know and I can provide you with a part number or you can visit "repairclinic.com" and enter your model number and a description of the part you need. Hope this was helpful to you. Let me know or rate my info accordingly. Thanks for visiting "fixya" today and good luck. macmarkus :)

Kenmore Elite Electric Dryer, Model # 110.8586400, Control Panel Lights inoperative, But Drum Light works fine. I am going to try this procedure, Will let you know if it works. Jay/ Jacksonville Florida...


I followed that procedure, Taking the Electronic Control Unit out of the dryer, Blow Drying the printed circuit Board (PCB) Board out and reseating P3 and P4, Worked fine.. No moisture was found in the Drum area. I forgot to tag the TECH SHEET FOR this particular dryer . But punch in Tech sheet , Part # 8546206 into google, this gives Schematic and valuable Troubleshooting steps, The only thing i could not find was the pin to pin test on chekcing the individual switches on the main functions, Suppose to be 14 pins I only found 13. But in all drying the PCB board and reseating the plugs worked for me. Again the symptons were no Light indication on ANY button depressed but the drum light was on. Great Site, Not a first time user

He3 door handle repair


Carefully remove the door from the front of the dryer and lie on a flat surface face down. Lay a towel under the door to prevent scratching the door window. Remove the screws from the back of the dryer door and the hinge. The back panel should lift off exposing the screws holding the handle in place.

Searspartsdirect.com has some excellent exploded view diagrams that you can work from as well.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

The belt popped on my estate dryer and i got a new belt, how do i put the new one on. a diagram or tips would be helpful


If the model number you have this listed under is correct, these are the steps necessary to replace the belt on your dryer:

1. UNPLUG the dryer.
2. Locate the two screws under the lint screen door on the dryer top panel. Carefully remove screws. NOTE: Do not drop them down the lint chute. Place a free hand over the opening, or cover with tape to prevent this from happening.
3. With two screws removed, the top panel will slide towards you, then lift up.
4. While resting the top panel against your shoulder (or propped up), remove the front panel by removing the door latch connectors and ground wires, first. Then locate the two screws that hold the front panel to the side casing. There is one on each side. Place you body against the panel with the door shut to support the panel while you loosen the screws. With the screws removed, the panel should lift up a bit then come off. NOTE: Tape the door shut while removing, so it does not fly open.
5. You can leave the drum in place, or remove it completely. The new belt needs to wrap around the drum and be routed through the idler pulley and drive motor pulley. NOTE: Since the routing of the drive belt differs on some dryers, refer to replairclinic.com for dryer belt diagrams. Just click on the "Repair Help" link at the top of the page, followed by the "Dryer Belt Diagrams" heading under the Special Features section on the next page. Refer to diagram H for your dryer.
6. Reinstall components in the reverse order of the steps provided.

ADDITIONAL HINTS:

1. If you remove the drum, make sure it is seated properly on the back drum roller supports or the back of the drum will not seal properly against the back bulkhead.
2. When installing the front panel, look for the small black cleats along the front edge of the side panels. There will be a small square shaped hole on the bottom edge on the back of the front panel that the cleats must insert into. This can take some coordination if performing the repairs alone. A second person can come in handy. Once the front panel is mounted on the cleats properly, place your body against it to hold in place until you get the screws back in place.
3. Make sure the front of the drum fits around the door opening seam of the front panel when installing. This ensures a proper seal along the front of the drum.

Read through all the steps thoroughly before attempting the repair. This may seem a bit intimidating, but the process is actually very simple. If you get stuck along the way, have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know before rating the solution. I hope this helps you.

Clothes get lodged between dryer barrel and dryer frame


you need a new rear bearing kit and a new top front felt yes this is something you cand yourself. Frist unplug the dryer, with a stiff putty knife releace the clips on each side of the top at front to pop open the top. next on the inside of the front cover on each side is a philips head screw remove both screws ( I find it easier to use a #2 square head for this ) now remove the front panell diconect the door switch.now reach under the dryer drum behind the motor and release the belt by removing the tention on the idler pulley and slipping the belt off the motor shaft (you may be able to do this better fromt the rear of the dryer. there is an access panell remove the two screws and you can see the belt and idler pulley ) now using the belt in one hand and the front of the drum in the other lift up on the rear of the drum ( you are lifting the bearing out of the scocket you will feel it pop out ) now slid the drum out of the cabnet. Now you can repace the bearing put a piece of duct tape over the clip on back center of the dryer ( on the outside ) now remove the two 5/16 screws holding the bearing cup on remove the tape from the clip put ne clip on tape in place set new steel ball in cup i put a dab of the greace supplyed in the kit to hold it in put cup on new bracket. set in place and put screws in you may have to reach around the back to line up the clip teghten screws snug. now in the center of the drum is the bearing on the inside are three philips head screws remove all three some timse you can use a #2 square headi lossen all the screws frist almost completly the remove them one at a time or you will have to hold the bearing with one hand to keep it from spinning. Putting the new bearing on you have to put the screw in one hole hold it with one hand and line the bearing up with the other or get some one to leand you a helping hand makes it alot easier.tighten all three screws good and tight now reinstall dryer drum besure to seat the bearing in the bearing cup again you will feel it pop in put the belt back around the drum. Now on the dryer front you will see the felt support the fron of the drum glides on pull it off just the top felt only with a putty knife clean off as much of the old felt as possable. Apply a genurious amount of the glue provided in the kit to the new felt i always put a good line of glue on the dryer front also press the new felt to the front (be sure if the new felt has plastic glides the overhang should be toward the front not the drum if the new felt does not have these glides you don't have to worrie) put dryer front back on when putting the drum back on the top felt you may need to hold the new felt to keep it from moving. reconect door switch put the two screws back in the front. now go back to the back and putthe belt back on the motor pull the idler to tighten the spring put belt around motor shaft and ease pulley back to belt. Put access cover back on and secure. close the top plug it and test don't let dryer run long just a few seconds I like to let the dryer set 24 hour befor putting back to use to give the glue time to set.

Fix Loose Baffles


The two screws that hold the door door hinges and the two on the opposite side of the door opening hold the front panel in place. Once you remove the door and the other two screws the front panel should swing down to access the screws that hold down the top. But you may be able to reach the baffle screws once the front cover is removed.

Dryer just quit.. no buttons lit


Front Panel lights not working? Dryer inside light does work? I fixed this twice already on my dryer. Please read this whole explanation I live in New Orleans where the humidity is very high. I have a laundry room where my Washer and Dryer reside. Kenmore HE4T. I noticed that when I shut the laundry room door, my central A/C pulls hot air from outside the house via the dryer exhaust duct. This causes moisture to build on the inside of the dryer and especially the front control panel. Did you ever see moisture on your dryer?s door even when there were no clothes in it? The moisture collects on the Silicon board that controls the dyers function and basically causes a short. This is what I do to fix it. You will need a ¼ nut driver or socket. 1. Confirm that you have power to the dryer <- is the inside dryer light on when you open the door. YES- keep reading.. NO ? find the circuit breaker and reset it. 2. UNPUG THE DRYER! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! 3. Find the 3 screws in the back of the dryer that hold the dryer lid on. Unscrew them and slid the lid back and lift off. Is there moisture on the inside of the lid? 4. Find the 2 screws that hold down the front control panel. They should be silver and will be on top. Do not remove the inside gold screws. 5. Find the 3 screws that hold down the power control panel on the top left side of the dryer. Probably has a high voltage warning sticker on it. 6. Lift the power control panel (sheet metal) part and move it to the right so it lays on the dyers drum. There are some wires attached to it and unless you are a very handy person, I wouldn?t remove them. 7. Lift the front control panel straight up until it comes out of the dryer. There should be some wires that attach this piece to the power control panel. If you are handy, you can remove these 2 clip-on wires from the power control panel by squeezing the black connector locking clip and releasing it from the panel. 8. If you flip the control panel around you may notice moisture on the green silicon chips. Get a hairdryer and take your time to dry them. 9. Dry all components of the dryer with a hairdryer. 10. Put everything back together except for the lid and all the screws. Remember that the front control panel slides down first and then the power control panel sits on top second. Plug the dryer in and see if you get lights, but don?t start the dryer. Unplug the dryer and replace all the screws and the lid. The problem is that once the dryer gets wet from the moisture, it never dries enough for it to start working again. This is a bad design from Sears/Whirlpool. I learn my lesson that just because its more expensive doesn?t make it more better. I now keep my dryer and washer door open all the time even when there are no clothes in it. This lets the moisture escape into the house rather than collect in the dryer. I hope this helps at least one person. Thanks Jason Kennedy from New Orleans
