Question about Maytag PYE2300AY Electric Dryer
If your clothes are getting stuck in the front of the dryer, it could mean more than one thing.
Your front felt seal is faulty, broken, or out of position.
After years of use, the front felt seal on the dryers break down,come loose, or become faulty. It is also sometimes caused by wear in the drum rollers, and this causes the felt seal to become worn.
You will need to replace the front felt seal and possibly the drum rollers.
ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
If you have a front loading machine,
Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer.
Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum, felt seal and belt. It is a good time to check and replace the felt seal. You could stop there but I recommend that you do the following:
Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm pulley and motor.
Now is a good time to check the belt condition for wear.
Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they are worn or have flat spots on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots on them and is not worn, then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in.
