Question about Maytag Performa PAV2200

Maytag dryer won't heat up

I have a maytag performa dryer. It was working fine and then it just stopped heating up. It turns and the timing works but it doesn't get hot. I've never worked on an appliance before, but I think it must not get a spark or something to ignite the gas. Is this something I can fix myself? It is a Maytag Performa, but I don't see PAV2200 anywhere. The model number on the door is PYGT244AWW.

    My Maytag Performa PYG 2200 AWW is not heating also. It happened in December along with the belt breaking. I had it repaired, but now it wont heat again just 4 months later. Now I am shopping for a new dryer. :(

Maytag washer squeaks when spin cycle stops


We have a Maytag Performa G3300 that we bought on 8/13/2001. It still works great, but on 2/25/10 it stopped heating. We found that by removing the front panel and vacuuming the accumulated lint on the inside of the dryer and the door, the problem was resolved. There were no parts to replace, just vacuuming.

Maytag performa dryer suddenly stopped working, as if no power. i replaced both fuses and it worked. ran for about 15 mins and stopped again. any suggestions?


did it blow the fuses a second time.try this .put your dryer on a cycle that wont call for heat and turn it on.if the heat strips are not on and it still blows a fuse it is the motor.if the heat strips are on and it blows a fuse the heat strips are the trouble.

Maytag Performa Pye2000ayw won't turn on-tried taping wires


If your dyrer has a thermal fuse, it will be on the blower housing (front), not on the heat element. It will be either white plastic os a button about half the size of other thermos. The fuse on the heat element will shut down the haet only. Hope this helps!

Maytag performa dryer doesn't fully heat


A couple of suggestions. STOP, be sure the gas it turned off before disconnecting the line. Move it to an open area and check all venting. A good cleaning makes a huge difference. I believe your problem to be the heating coil is on it's way out, "works sometime". Write down the Make, Model, Seriel Number & Year of MFG...someone may ask for it..Check Your local appliance store for price & availablity Easy to replace on most model dryers.
When reattaching the gas line, be safe not to overtighten the coupler. A safe test for leaks is NOT a match... a drop or two of dishsoap around the fittings will bubble if it is not sealed. Good Luck

Dryer is not heating


If a washer is not heating the part responsible can be thermal fuse, heating element , control assembly, or a bad wiring.

All parts must be tested by a technician and eventually replaced.
