Question about Maytag Dryers

1 Answer

I have a Maytag Performance Series clothes dryer Model PYE2300AZW (Serial # 10027449AJ). Out of the blue, when you press the on switch/knob, absolutley nothing happens. We have never really had any problems with the machine before. Could the problem be the switch behind the knob? Is this an expensive fix? Have limited resources at this time and would truly appreciate your advice on how I might get this dryer operational again.

You can bypass the door switch, as they do go bad.

Maytag clothes dryer Model PYE 2300 AYW will not start. All elements tested okay. pye2300 AYW won't start.

Check the door switch. It might be a small button under the edge of the door. It's possible it is stuck.

I just want to know how hot the clothes part getts in the maytag performance gas dryer does the regular mode reach 122 degrees

Dave, Dave here.
I would type Maytag into my box in the top of the computer screen and see if you can find the phone number of the Maytag factory service representative.
They might be able to tell you.
Another choice would be to put a thermometer ( like a candy thermometer) inside another dryer belonging to someone else and look at it when it is in the middle of a heat cycle. You would want to hang it inside somehow so it did not tumble and break.
Be blessed.

Maytag dryer pye2300azw shut off when drying the clothes i check breaker from house to dryer that's OK it won't turn on back

This dryer is fairly easy to repair.

The thermal fuse is probably blown. Look for air restrictions and a bad blower wheel to be the culprit. When that blower wheel starts slipping it causes the dryer to overheat.

MY pye2300azw maytag dryer does not seem to be heating hot enough. can you suggest a solution please. Does it need a new thermostat, nothing wrong with the heating element.

Number 10 is the most likely suspect. The blower wheel tends to get wobbled out and won't send enough heat through the drum making it take twice as long to dry the clothes.themobilian_13.jpgthemobilian_14.jpgthemobilian_15.jpgthemobilian_16.jpgthemobilian_17.jpg

No power to dryer was working fine no warning would not start

Most likely a bad fuse. There is one above the heat element, also may have one on the blower housing. Test with an ohmmeter or bypass. Hope this helps!

Dryer knob sticks in one spot- won't move

 Door switch / Door switch actuator leverThe dryer would not start with a broken door switch. Replace the door switch if found defective.

Most dryers have a door switch actuator lever - when you close a dryer door, it presses against the lever, which actuates the door switch. If the lever is broken, the switch would not activate and the dryer would not start. Replace the lever, if broken.

Note: Door switch actuator lever usually comes with the door switch assembly and it is recommended to get the whole assembly since there is almost no price difference between the door switch assembly and just the lever. Check your model for more details.
