    Vent was ducted under a large back porch. Ends of the porch were skirted to prevent unwanted four legged intruders. I removed one end of the skirting and have had no more trouble, apparantly it was sealed tight enough to restrict dryer vent.

Your lint trap and/or ducting could be blocked. This will cause the machine to overheat and the thermal fuse shuts it off before it burns your house down.

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

Maytag Dryer model number PYE2300AYW will not start.


check your fuses in the dryer their is only one fuse that could shut down the whole dryer like that. Open back panel and get a volt meter and check for continuity on the fuses. HOW? first un plug it then open back then you will see the heating element their are 2 fuses on the heating element take off wires and check those.Then if those are ok look down thier is another fuses its long white with 2 wires comming out of it with a black center that should be your problem check it repair it run it . GOOD LUCK

Dryer does not start


Check the fuse on the blower housing.
To get to the heating element on most of these dryers you remove the back dust cover: whirlpool%20dryer.jpg 1. Hi Limit (small limit upper right hand side of this pic) the most frequent problem if dryer RUNS but no heat. 2. Heater assembly. 7. Control thermostat(s). 5. Fuse(350F), if blown(open) the dryer will NOT run. 4. Heater element.

Dryer ran fine. Next load it would not start. It is a 220V, 5 cycle-3 temperature unit. Model # LER5636EQ3 TYPE: 178-00


Check your door switch to make sure its ok. Whirlpool has a fuse on the back of the machine inside. Fuse will be white in color. If that is open, check for a clogged vent or ck your hi-limit thermostat. If everything else is ok you have a bad timer.

Have a kenmore gas dryer, model # 11072802101, that will not heat at all. have already changed the thermal fuse with no change.


The 'operating' thermostat and the high temp limit thermostat could be bad. There is also a contact on the motor in the element circuit. The two therm. mentioned should read '0' ohms with a meter. (with machine unplugged.)
