Maytag dryer pyet244ayw won't turn on

Most Likely bad fuse! (maybe caused by blocked vent)
Remove power! Unplug! Do not trust breaker!
Pop top, lift top from front (above door).
Heater is in back.
Thermostate on top of heater.
Fuse is beside heater.
Probably bad fuse! (Will read open on ohm meter if bad)
Next would be door switch (Will read open if door open, closed if door closed) Open all times will keep dryer from starting also.

How to open top of dryer

On most all Maytag dryers (true Maytag dryers, not Whilpools brand), you access the dryer from the rear panel, not the top.

Maytag PYE2300 AZE electric dryer

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.

Look down inside the open top dryer at each side there will be a screw on each side a few inches down. Leaning against the front remove the two screw and pull the top forward a few inches and raise it from the supports at bottom then swing it aside protecting any wiring.

This will give you access to the underside of the dryer.

Reverse the disassembly process to reassemble the front and top being careful not to disconnect any wiring.

How to remove lint tray receiver: maytag dryer model#pye2300ayw

Unplug first with a straight blade screwdriver, pry up on the top of the dryer where the front wall of the dryer and the top meet. there are 2 screws 1 on each side inside the dryer where the sides and front meet, remove them and unhook the wires from the door switch. the whole front will now pull out and up, now open the door remove the 2 screws at the bottom of the door opening and the whole lint tray will pull out. sounds like a lot but only takes about 5 minutes.
