MAYTAG PYE2300AYW ELECTRIC DRYER not heating

I replaced both thermal fuses with the correct parts, and when that didn't work I replace the heating element. The dryer runs, but still no heat. I wanted to fix it myself, but unless someone can clue me in, I will have to call a repairman and be out extra bucks.

Would appreciate anyone's expertise.

    I have exactly the same problem: runs but no heat. I cleaned the exhaust of lint and replaced both fuses (though not the heating element yet). I tried to call Maytag for more suggestions, but their offices are closed on weekends (of course!).

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    our epic z electric dryer model MEDZ600TW2 SN/MW2203750 no longer has heat. Motor and tub work properly.I think it could be element or thermal fuse. I would like to try to repair this myself but need to know if im on the right track and also what part numbers to order. Also, do I remove the front or back of dryer. Thanks

Check the terminal block and make sure you're getting 220. If you only get 110, the dryer will run but without heat.

Maytag pye2300ayw will not starte


You need to make sure that you have 220 volts to the dryer. If you do, then unplug the dryer. Lift the lid of the dryer by taking a putty knife and putting it under the lid of the dryer. There are two clips that you need to push in then the lid of the dryer will lift up. In the back left hand corner of the dryer, you will see the heating element. Beside that you will see a thermostat and thermal fuse. check both of them for continuity. Most likely the thermal fuse is bad. If it is bad replace it and clean your dryer vent. The thermal fuse breaks when the dryer gets too hot. It is a safety switch.

Location of Thermal Fuse


The thermal fuse is located near the heating element. The part number for the replacement kit is LA-1053. You can view an illustrated parts break down of your dryer at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and locate item 5 under the "Heater" section. Pay close attention to the instructions in the thermal fuse replacment kit. One thermostat is for a GAS dryer, one is for an ELECTRIC dryer. Read the instructions and make sure you use the correct one. If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Pye2300ayw Dryer will not start. I think it is a bad door switch. How can a confirm this?


Change your thermal fuse first. when thermal fuse goes bad either the whole dryer won't run or the heat element won't come on. Check out item # 3344 at www.repairclinic.com/Appliance-Parts?s=t-pye2300ayw-%3d%3d&z=100 If your thermal fuse is bad there will be no continuity through it.

Dryer Won't Start


most common problem with the dryers is blown thermal fuses, something gets too hot and for safety reasons the thermal fuse blows. You can also check your incoming power supply make sure the breakers havent tripped. part num( LA-1053 )about $30 comes with directions to install. its located under main top towards the rear of unit moundted to the side of heater.BE SURE TO TURN OFF ALL POWER BEFORE CHECKING ITS LIVE!!!!!!!!!
