Question about Maytag PYE2300AY Electric Dryer

2 Answers

My Maytag dryer model # LDE7314ACE has been making a terrible noise. We think the belt is breaking. We have waited for a few months and now it is making an even louder noise. How can you get into this dryer so we can see what it needs? Is it a hard repair?

I have not yet found solution but my same make and model dryer is making a very loud, grinding(?) noise. The 1st 8-10 mins of the cycle(regardless of which cycle) it seems ok, then the noise begins and becomes deafening. I thought since it is a Maytag, it would be worth the cost of repair, but now question whether I need to purchase a replacement. ??

Go to sears.com, click on parts and service upper right corner, click on parts, enter your model number it will list a parts breakdown/schematic this wy u can determine whhich parts are removable and how its put togetherr and also get part numbers and prices, shop around though prices might seem low but they get you on the shipping check any local appliances stores if any are avaialbe in your area....

I persoanlly would check the belt, the rollers, or an idler pulley,, also maybe any glides or seals if your model has any........replace any defective parts you find hope this helps good day let me know whut u find

My dryer (maytag atlantis) has started making a loud clunking noise with each revolution. its still drying fine but sounds terrible. any thoughts?


A loose belt will allow the drum to slip when clothes hit the paddles in the drum. It sometimes sounds like a pair of tennis shoes are in the dryer when it slips and is usually rythymic.

These machines also use drum rollers that can make a racket when they go bad.

Dryer is making rapid thumping noise after running about 20 minutes on the sensor cycle. I have to shut it off and wait till it cools down and then try again.


belt problem most likely. see if there is access hatch in back. open it and look to see if something is in/on the belt /pulley. get a trusted friend to ease the drum around by hand and see it there is a break in belt

Maytag electric dryer is making a high pitched noise


The squealing noise is from the belt tensioner. Replace the pulley only on the tensioner along with a new belt. The bearing in the pulley is causing the squeal. Sears will sell this in a kit. The top and the front panel of the dryer will have to be removed to replace these parts

My Maytag dryer buzzes when I push the start button. If you hold it in, the dryer will start but makes a noise, almost like a bad belt. After a few minutes the dryer will shut itself off and will not...


Remove the belt from the motor and push 'start'. If the motor makes loud noises, squeals, or the shaft has side play in several directions, then it probably is the motor. Replace it. If the the motor runs quietly, then check the drum by hand to see if it is making excessive noise while turning. There should be a little resistance to turning, but not real difficulty. Hope this helps.

Dryer doesn;t spin


Sounds like the belt has broken. The terrible noise was probably the belt slipping until it gained traction.

Motor smells on model lde7314ace


If the motor smell burnt it is going to burn up soon. Unfortunatly it is time to replace the motor if it is worth it. You may consider a new one. Once the motor goes you can guarante that something else will follow.
