Question about Maytag PYE2300AY Electric Dryer

I have a Maytag Performa model #PYE2300AYW dryer. The issue I'm having is the dryer stopping all together midway through the drying cycle. You can get it to start back up by pushing down on the selector knob. Please help!!

Yes, you can have a few different issues going on with your dryer and it may be hard to pin down. 1. You may have a intermittent door switch. I've seen this many times. 2. You may also have a motor that is tripping it's overload. 3. You also may have a timer issue. This may be difficult to fix on your own so you may want to call a pro. If it was me, I'd check the door switch or replace it. If it's not that, you may want to consider a new dryer due to the high repair cost. Hope this helps,

Dryer stopped running with 30 minutes left and will not restart. Maytag Performa PYE2300AYW


Reset the circuit breaker for the dryer. Allow the motor to cool, It has over temperature protection that will shut down the motor.

The belt that turns the drum may have broken. I am not sure about this model, but most dryers have a limit switch on the base of the dryer next to the motor that shuts down the dryer when the belt brakes.

My maytag dryer heating element gets hot but motor will not run


Sounds like you have something shorted out.

The element issue could be a contact fused shut.
With both problems I would be looking for wires melted together, or a relay/sequencer welded shut melted etc.

You do have a potential fire hazzard here. If after removing the panel you cannot locate the problem, do not run the unit.

It is taking 3 full cycles to dry my small loads on my Maytag Performa PYE2300AYW. I have cleaned lint tray and trap. I need to clean the lint from the inside of my dryer - How do I do this?


The main area that you have to clean is the pipe leading from the back of your dryer to outdoors. Pull your dryer away from the wall. Unplug it. Unfasten the vent pipe. Now look into the back of the dryer exhaust and remove any lint you see there then look into the vent pipe and remove any lint. Finally go outdoors and remove any lint you see in the pipe or the pipe grill/cover.

My maytag performa pye2300ayw dryer will start but will not heat up. No matter how long I leave it on, it just won't heat up. what could be the source of the problem? the model number - pye2300ayw rev - 10...


You have a thermal overload switch that may be bad. It is located under the top of the dryer. Check first the breakers. Turn them off and then back on, then check the wiring in the back of the dryer and then the element itself. It may take 30 minutes to do all of this, but it will save you a lot in the long run.
