My Maytag Peforma dryer works but it seems to not get as hot now and takes longer to dry the same amount of cloths. ?? I have always had an element just stop. Has anyone had an element go slowly bad?

Not 100% about this model, but the stat is located next to the fan.
Remove the front cover - insert a flat blade between the lid and front panel approx 4" in from each side to release the clips, lift the lid, remove the front panel (2 screws) fan and stat at the bottom, rest is straight forward.

Model #PYE2300AYW Dryer. Changed therm fuse. Died in 5 loads. Changed therm fuse/Hi limit. Died in one load. This is a fairly simple machine. Could op thermostat be taking all these out? Tnx


Your lint trap and/or ducting could be blocked. This will cause the machine to overheat and the thermal fuse shuts it off before it burns your house down.

How can you test the safety thermostat? Maytag Dryer. The safety fuse was blown, very little lint in heating area, so no clog of airflow. So how do I check the thermostat is working correctly?


safty fuse may just be a bad one . to ck thermo use a tempt tester in the vent . it chould cycle at 155 deg on hi and 140 on del .settings. if flex venting is used it may have been kinked . if yo don't tust the thermo the you should change it .. but keep in mind it takes 190deg + tempt to blow the saftey..

My maytag dryer heater will not turn on or get hot


Check the breaker first, then the connections, then last the element. It should be burned in two if it is not working. If all that is o.k. then the thermostat should be looked at. Have someone ohm it out and check it for voltage.

Maytag Dryer Tstat wiring


I believe that this part is a thermostat. If im not mistaken, it shouldnt matter which wire goes on which prong. Think this is a reversable thermostat. It should have just 2 prongs correct? Jim
