Question about Maytag PYE2300AY Electric Dryer
While running the dryer the bottom face of the dryer, below the door, has been getting very hot. Otherwise dryer is working fine.
That is where the fan is located, hot air is drawn from the hearer at the rear of the drum, through the drum then through the fluf filter at the front (inside the front edge) and then down the front panel and to the fan, then via a duct to the rear. So would get warm at this part.
Would check that the external ducting is clear and not kinked, flexible plastic or foil ducts should not be used for these machines ie fixed ducting only.

This sounds like you may have blown the thermal fuse. If you turn the dryer around facing the back, remove the screws holding the back panel on (be sure to unplug the pigtail from the wall!!!). When you remove the back panel, down towards the bottom, you will see a plastic piece (could be long and square, or rounded type. Do believe it will be the long type) with 2 wires going to it. It has a screw that holds it it. This fuse protecs the unit and motor from excess heat and electrical issues.
