Can I reverse the door swing on my Maytag Performa dryer>

Here is the link to the owners manual. This feature is not mentioned. Look at the molding in the metal case of the front of the dryer. See if there are identical moldings for the door and latch on both sides. If not, no. Only alternative is to get longer connection hoses and swap washer with dryer left to right.

I have a maytag performa electric dryer model #pye2300ayw, rev 10 -- sometimes I need to run the dryer 3-4 times to get a load dried. I checked the outside vent and there is alot of hot air coming out, the...


We had this same problem recently. Don't know if your problem is the same, but I am sure it could be.
While we did have hot air coming from the outside vent, it was still a restricted vent duct that was our problem. I went to Lowes and bought a dryer vent cleaning kit for about $40 (I figured I needed to do this anyway, as I'd been hearing about how many housefires are caused by the heat buildup from poorly breathing vent tubes/ducts), and cleaned the whole length of the duct (and replaced the plastic flexi-tube inside with a metal one).
I had thought I had good air-flow before doing this, but oh my gosh, what a difference this made! And I couldn't believe the pile of nasty, damp lint that came out!!
Anyway, our dryer immediately went from requiring 2-3 cycles to dry a load of clothes, to doing a great job the first time through! Perhaps the same solution would help you. I hope so!

Maytag performa dryer model pye2300ayw, what should the ohms reading be on the thermal fuse?


doesn't matter,it's either good or bad,when you touch the meter to it if it reads 1 and doen't move it's bad if you get any reading it's good,if the dryer is loaded with lint in the duct that the lint filter slides into and the vent line is blocked it will keep popping on you, clean out the dryer,number one cause for popping the thermal fuse

My maytag dryer heating element gets hot but motor will not run


Sounds like you have something shorted out.

The element issue could be a contact fused shut.
With both problems I would be looking for wires melted together, or a relay/sequencer welded shut melted etc.

You do have a potential fire hazzard here. If after removing the panel you cannot locate the problem, do not run the unit.

My maytag performa pye2300ayw dryer will start but will not heat up. No matter how long I leave it on, it just won't heat up. what could be the source of the problem? the model number - pye2300ayw rev - 10...


You have a thermal overload switch that may be bad. It is located under the top of the dryer. Check first the breakers. Turn them off and then back on, then check the wiring in the back of the dryer and then the element itself. It may take 30 minutes to do all of this, but it will save you a lot in the long run.

WILL NOT START. LIGHT ON BUT WILL NOT START


Check the thermal fuse, located on the right side of the heater housing. If bad order LA1053 kit.
Fair warning it's a real patience tester to install correctly
