MAYTAG PERFORMA PYET244AYW

Our dryer quit working sometime in the first 20 minutes of drying time. I walked by and noticed a burning smell and that the timer was still going but the tumbler was not tumbling. I shut it all off and told my husband the next day. He was about to by a new dryer when I gGoogled our model number and found some advice about replacing the heating element. So...he ordered one for $23.95. It arrived today. He installed it. We turned it on with some wet towels in it. It worked! ...for about 3 minutes and then it just stopped. The top of the dryer was too hot to touch. We are wondering if this is a thermostat problem?

It could very well be a thermostat problem, however, it could also be the drive motor itself starting to burn out. Some dryers are equipped with a "Thermal Limiter" that will cut the power to heat. It doesn't seem to be the case for you. I would defiantely look into another thermostat but if it comes down to the motor, depending on the price, You may want to buy a new dryer.

It is possible that the motor start/run capacitor has failed, rendering the motor unable to get going. The capacitor will look something like this

Dryer quit middle of drying


Verify 220 volts to the terminal block where the cord attaches.
Check the door switch for continuity.
Check the thermal fuse on the right hand side of the heating element just below where the heater wires connect.
You may need a flashlight to see this fuse.

It most likely is the thermal fuse.
If so correct any vent blockage or you will blow another fuse.
The fuse comes in a kit including the hi-limit switch.
Replace them both.

could be an overheated motor, but always clean venting and make sure it is under 20' with fewer than 4 elbows. mat'l should be metal. filter housing sometimes get clogged also, look inside and remove any lint build-up. there should be very strong flow of air out vent with hose removed.
