First things I would check are that the door switch is good, and that the cord is good. Sometimes a cord will break where it meets the terminal block inside the dryer. I am assuming you have checked the breaker :)

Maytag Performa PYE/G2300 Dryer: The switch runs through the cycles but nothing changes. All cycles stay the same - hot! Help, please? Thank you!


You mean it stay only "Hot" only on any position?
-If so then the switch is defect (Burn or melt inside)
It might need new switch.

Good luck

I have a Maytag Performa PYE/G2300. It is 8 years old and is making a sound like when a landing gear is coming down on a plane. Any idea's


The most common problem on these units is the right rear roller that supports the back half of the drum. It usually will seize up because its located closest to the heating element/burner assy. The heat causes the bearing to expand. Hope this helps.

My dryer quit working in the middle of a cycle. Dont know what happen. Its a Maytag PYE 3360AYW dryer, we've had it for awhile.


Disconnect power38732b7.jpg882727e.jpge4ad6bc.jpg58c0a23.jpgThat thermal will blow and kill power to the door switch circuit. The dryer will no longer function till you replace the thermal fuse. 0bdf7e1.jpgFailure to temove lint will cause continued thermal fuse replacement.

Maytag Performa PYE G2200 gas dryer, the dryer seems to turn on but the drum will not turn.


Based on the information provided, it sounds like a broken drum belt is at fault. Below is an illustration of the drum belt.

Here is a parts/disassembly diagram:

Here is a belt installation diagram:
Dryers have a drive belt that turns the clothes drum. If the belt breaks, the drum stops rotating. Then you need to replace the belt, and often the idler pulley, because the pulley tends to wear out at the same time.

Maytag Performa Electric Dryer will not turn on


Check the following to address this issue.


1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power with a voltmeter or by plugging something else in.

2. Door switch / Door switch actuator lever
The dryer would not start with a broken door switch. Replace the door switch if found defective.

Most dryers have a door switch actuator lever - when you close a dryer door, it presses against the lever, which actuates the door switch. If the lever is broken, the switch would not activate and the dryer would not start. Replace the lever, if broken.

Note: Door switch actuator lever usually comes with the door switch assembly and it is recommended to get the whole assembly since there is almost no price difference between the door switch assembly and just the lever. Check your model for more details.

3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.

4. Timer/control
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

Maytag pye/g2300. dryer will not start.


A thermal fuse will not conduct electricity if it is bad. Take it off and check it with a continuity meter.
