Unplug the cord of the dryer before starting.

Raise top by placing a putty knife between top and front in the seam between the two about 2 inches in from each edge and lifting up at the same time. Raise top to full open position.

Heater is located in the left rear corner behind the tub. High Limit thermostat sits atop the heater and thermal fuse is located toward the right side of the can containing the heater.

Kit number LA-1053 contains several thermostats and fuse. replace all parts in the kit.

Dryer stopped running altogether while drying an oversized load of beach towels. Problem is not in the power supply outlet or circuit breaker or the dryer door switch. From another website I learned that...


Go to www.repairclinic.com and enter PYE2300AY. With luck, you will be presented with a list of common repair parts and may be able to view a generic Maytag video showing disassembly and repair.

Dryer does not work at all on any setting.


The thermal fuse might be blown (just fixed my PYE2300AYW last week - I assume they're similar enough). Easy to check - pull the wires off the terminals of the thermal fuse, put an ohmmeter across the terminals. If no continuity, it's blown and needs to be replaced.
Also replace the high-limit thermostat at the same time, since it wasn't apparently doing it's job (for mine, the 2 came together in a kit, about $20 - fairly standard, so yours very likely uses the same, but you should check it).
You should be able to find a picture showing where the thermal fuse is and what it looks like by googling "PYE2300AY thermal fuse".
And, while you have it open, clean any and all lint out from around/ over/under the hearing coils - that may have contributed to the overheating.
If you DO still have continuity across the thermal fuse, then it's something else, but from what I've read, that's likely the culprit.

Location of Thermal Fuse


The thermal fuse is located near the heating element. The part number for the replacement kit is LA-1053. You can view an illustrated parts break down of your dryer at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and locate item 5 under the "Heater" section. Pay close attention to the instructions in the thermal fuse replacment kit. One thermostat is for a GAS dryer, one is for an ELECTRIC dryer. Read the instructions and make sure you use the correct one. If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Where is the thermal fuse located?


In the back of the dryer. Look for the coiled heaters and follow the lead wires back to the fuse.

Electric dryer


You can get to the thermal fuse by taking the top of the dryer off. It only has about 4-6 screws. You should see the thermal fuse located at or near the drum. Trying bypassing the fuse first. If it starts, there is your problem. Go get one for about 10 dollars.
