Question about Maytag Dryers

1 Answer

My Maytag Performa (PYE2300AYL) dryer quit running in middle of load. It has been working fine for 7 yrs. I checked all obvious reasons (power supply, breaker, etc.) and then replaced the high limit thermostat which is also involves a type of fuse. The dryer still won't "turn-on" so I'm wondering if I should attempt to replace other fuses or look for some other reason why it is "dead".

The first thing to try wold be the thermal fuse.  you can check with an ohm meter and you will probably find it open up.  replacing is an easy one by please UNPLUG the machine first.

Maytag performa dryer quit working


Check your breaker first and then the wiring. Check power coming from the timer next. With a load and resistance that you had, you could have tripped one of the breakers.Since you have bypassed the thermal fuse, it probably is the timer switch.

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!!!!!!!!!

We had 3 power outages a couple of days ago and my Maytag Performa Dryer won't run now.


Obviously when you had the power outage the voltage and frequency fluctuated. If you had the dryer running at the time, then it has tripped. Check the power supply at the plug point first, if its good then check the machine it has to have a trip switch on it or a internal fuse. check them if they are good.
