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.

I have a maytag performa dryer wont heat up sometimes


Hello there:
If there is no heat or heat sometimes please try these solutions
Heating element Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable. Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.) Wiring A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

My Maytag Performa PYG2300AWW dryer quit working today. 1st we noticed it wasn't dying clothes, then there was a smell. We thought the lint was clogging it up, so we vacuumed everything out. Now it won't...


This could be the thermal fuse or Hi Limit thermostat possibly a few other components. There is a video at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html that will walk you thru the troubleshooting procedure. It's a different model but testing and components are the same.

Maytag Performa Electric Dryer Won't Start


check the blower wheel, sounds to me like it is loose on the blower motor, common on these dryers. One sure sign would be a warped filter and a rusted top. The blower aint putting out enough and the dryer is over heating .
