Dryer doesn't turn on - Maytag Performa PYE2200AYW

There was a burn smell like the motor was being overworked. I went to check the dryer and it had turned off. Overheated? Fuse? I cleaned the exhaust pipe in the back, checked the breaker, checked the plug, checked the door - all seem fine. It still doesn't turn on. It is 6 years old. Is it time to get a new dryer?

My Maytag Performa Dryer model PDET920AYW will heat but drum will not turn. Belt is not broken. Can you help?


It is possible that the motor start/run capacitor has failed, rendering the motor unable to get going. The capacitor will look something like this

You have the belt on wrong. There is a side with numbers or writing on it and ribbed side like treads. The tread side should be facing down, making contact with the drum. If the other side is touching the drum then whenever clothes are put in the belt will slip causing the drum not to

Maytag Performa Electric Dryer, model # PYE2200AYW.


I have a ALE643RB Amana dryer and believe the heating element has went out because the dryer will not heat anymore. I have taken the control panel off the top and all the screws out on the back and the bottom edge, but am still not able to get the shell off the dryer. How do you get to the heating element?

It could very well be a thermostat problem, however, it could also be the drive motor itself starting to burn out. Some dryers are equipped with a "Thermal Limiter" that will cut the power to heat. It doesn't seem to be the case for you. I would defiantely look into another thermostat but if it comes down to the motor, depending on the price, You may want to buy a new dryer.

Maytag Performa PYE2200AYW - not working


Yes there is a fuse in the dryer. The black circular thing is a high limit thermostat. Beneath it is the thermal fuse. It is smaller (dime size) and is mounted to the right side of the heating element housing. It is alittle tough to see and get at. You must use the original Maytag part kit.It comes with a new high limit therm. and fuse.
