Question about Maytag Dryers

1 Answer

I have a Maytag dryer model # PYE2300AYW. I went to start it up and I heard a straining noise from the motor, then the circuit breaker tripped. I took the front panel off and removed a large chunk of lint in front of the blower, then installed a new thermal limit kit. It still will not start. Any ideas?

What will cause my maytag dryer to throw the breaker when i try to start it


Not a dryer pro but if the dryer is on a circuit that's already loaded up, or is overloading your current one (amps wise) that could cause it, and especially if the breaker is weak. Could be shorted capacitor or drive motor, or heating coil short situation. (wire melts, ends up shorting against housing). If the breaker checks out, suspect the heater element next, motor last, I'd say. Good luck. Maytag Dryer Trips Breaker

Maytag dryer model PYE2300AYW dryer runs gets hot stops. when I try to turn it back on it makes a noise and won't start back up. What could be wrong?


It sounds like your motor is bad. you could take the dryer apart and clean off the lint on the motor and see if that helps but it sounds like i said the motor is faulty.

My dryer won't do anything. Maytag model PYE2300AYW REV 10, Serial 10604533ZU


First thing check the circuit breaker to see if it is tripped or if it is a fuse style if the fuse is blown. Next if that all checks out okay check the door switch and see tha the door switch is being made when the door is closed. The machine will not operate with the door open and if the switch is bad or stuck open then the machine will not work.

Dryer stopped running with 30 minutes left and will not restart. Maytag Performa PYE2300AYW


Reset the circuit breaker for the dryer. Allow the motor to cool, It has over temperature protection that will shut down the motor.

The belt that turns the drum may have broken. I am not sure about this model, but most dryers have a limit switch on the base of the dryer next to the motor that shuts down the dryer when the belt brakes.

Circuit breaker trips after 10 minutes


could be a weak breaker,or poor high resistance connection from panel to dryer plug, then have someone check the current draw on the dryer while operating and see if it's within specs of the machine tag, if it's higher than that you may have a defective motor or heating element to case causing a higher than normal current draw

Maytag PYE2300AYW Dryer wont start or run. I replaced both thermal switches still nothing. What next?


Check the dryer breaker pair in the house electrical panel. Push off, then on. Try the dryer again. If works, ok. If not, recheck the breakers. If tripped again, the dryer has an internal short circuit--likely in the heating element(s). The drum must be removed to service the element(s).
