I want to disable the end of cycle buzzer on a maytag PYE2300AYW model dryer. I have disconnected the barrel end of a black wire directly next to a purple wire. 1. Is this safe? 2. Why does maytag make it difficult to do this?

SOURCE: how to remove lint tray receiver: maytag dryer model#pye2300ayw

Unplug first with a straight blade screwdriver, pry up on the top of the dryer where the front wall of the dryer and the top meet. there are 2 screws 1 on each side inside the dryer where the sides and front meet, remove them and unhook the wires from the door switch. the whole front will now pull out and up, now open the door remove the 2 screws at the bottom of the door opening and the whole lint tray will pull out. sounds like a lot but only takes about 5 minutes.

How can I disable the buzzer on my maytag supersize capacity 7 cycle electric dryer? It is SO loud! Thanks!

Most of these dryers have the buzzer located in the upper console somewhere. If you're handy with a screwdriver you'll have to take some screws out, maybe take the back off and hunt around inside there for a small, round item with two wires going to it. Disconnect one side and try the dryer for the end of a cycle. If the buzzer doesn't go off you're good. If it does, reconnect the wires you removed and look for another item similar to it. Basically that's all there is to it, just finding it is the hard part.

How can I disconnect the alarm when the drying is finished?

  • Turn off and unplug the dryer. Since you need to remove the front panels and expose the electrical wiring of the dryer's buzzer you should turn the dryer off and then unplug the machine to avoid shocks. Once the dryer has been unplugged, turn its dial to the "on" setting to make sure the dryer is completely powered down.

    Locate the buzzer. The best way to locate the dryer's buzzer is to check the machine's schematic or manual. The buzzer is usually located behind the front panel of the machine. In some cases the buzzer is located behind the dryer's back panel. Dryer buzzers are generally small black boxes that are wired to the timing device.

    Pull the buzzer's wires. The most simple way to deal with a buzzer is to pull the wires that run into the buzzer. The wires should pull free with a firm but careful tug. Once you've disconnected the wires from the buzzer simply run a good amount of electrical tape over the ends so that no live wires are exposed. If you want to get the wires out of the way, tape the wrapped wires to the top or side of the dryer panels.

    Test the machine. Once you've yanked and taped the buzzer's wires, plug the dryer back in and turn the machine on to test the buzzer. If the machine still buzzes at the end of the cycle then you removed the wrong wires. However, chances are that the machine will finish its drying with a quiet whimper instead of a loud buzz.

    Maytag electric dryer (PYE2300AYW) does not stop on auto cycle.

    Either the control board or the humidity sensor is bad.

    Maytag Dryer model number PYE2300AYW will not start.

    check your fuses in the dryer their is only one fuse that could shut down the whole dryer like that. Open back panel and get a volt meter and check for continuity on the fuses. HOW? first un plug it then open back then you will see the heating element their are 2 fuses on the heating element take off wires and check those.Then if those are ok look down thier is another fuses its long white with 2 wires comming out of it with a black center that should be your problem check it repair it run it . GOOD LUCK

    Disabling the signal end of cycle on ge dryer

    The buzzer is inside the control switch area. Its about the size of 4 stacked 50 cent coins. Kill the power to the drier and then open the control panel and locate the buzzer. Remove the two wires; using electrical tape, you can tape up each wire end and then secure it out of the way. :?) DRRXR

    Two things: I would like to disable the annoying buzzer that sounds which sounds when the drying cycle is over. I want to clean out the slot where the lint filter sits, but am afraid to pull very *******...

    Hello Walky,
    The vent cavity can be cleaned fairly easily without removing it by adding a section of flex tubing to your vacuum cleaner. Most hardware stores sell clear plastic tubing in various sizes so choose one that will fit inside the lint trap area ( normally ~ 1/2" or so and add that to your vac hose with duct tape or equivalent)... If you slash cut the end of can better vacuum the grated surface inside that filter housing.

    The buzzer module can be unhooked from inside the dryer. Try this website for location details Slide 3 Control Panel shows the wherabouts of the buzzer ( item 11 ) which you should be able to disable by removing or cutting the wire ( please do this with the power disconnected . Also , make sure that you cover any exposed wire ends with an electrical tape, wire nut or some insulator to prevent accidental shorts.

    Hope this helps you..
