My Maytag Performa electric dryer (model #PYE2300AZW) will not start. I went through the troubleshooting guide online, but did not help. Is there a built in fuse that can be checked?

Thermostat common problem for this machine ( dryers in general) bad thermal fuse, a result of poor venting usually.. with a putty knife or a screw driver the main top can be "poped" open , theres a clip perhaps 3-4 inches in on either side just under main top and from panel assy, after releasing the clips the top can be flipped back to reveal the heater and fuse are. the thermal fuse is located on the right side of the heater box, and can be tested for continuity. no continuity means is blown and needs replacing. part number LA-1053( about 30 bucks). if the fuse checks out ok the n i would check the heater assy and then the thermostat also mounted right there. simple continuity check for all three, all three must have continuity.

This dryer is fairly easy to repair.

The thermal fuse is probably blown. Look for air restrictions and a bad blower wheel to be the culprit. When that blower wheel starts slipping it causes the dryer to overheat.

Dryer will not turn


There is a belt like a fan belt that goes around the outer tub and onto a pulley that turns the tub, it may have slipped off, you should be able to take the top off of the dryer to check it.

No power to dryer was working fine no warning would not start


Most likely a bad fuse. There is one above the heat element, also may have one on the blower housing. Test with an ohmmeter or bypass. Hope this helps!

No heat from dryer.


Do not buy or use a maytag performa dryer model number pye2300ay at all. I fyou have one unplug it and take to the landfill or scrap yard. They are complete junk and nothing but a hassle. One problem after the other on this model no matter what you do. they are complete trash and a waste of your money.
