Question about Maytag PYE2300AY Electric Dryer

1 Answer

My Maytag dryer model pye2300 stopped working one day randomly. I know its not a fuse issue to the 220 outlet in the house, because I tested the oulet, and the drier still is receiving electricity, because I was working with the drier one day still plugged in and got zapped (no badly), I think it has something to do with the timer dial. I took it apart and found the plastic piece inside was broken so I fixed that by super gluing it. I know it has to be this part (the dial) model m460-g. I have done everything to see if it was anything else, such as a clogged vent issue or a power issue to the drier but it seems to be this dial that isn't working. Please help me! Thanks!

The timer on your dryer is more than likely bad. You already know what the timer is and where located. Not really that high priced thru ebay or an appliance repair outlet. Usually just a screwdriver and a small socket is all you need to change. Great sense of accomplishment when you finish and it works while saving a lot of $$$$. Stan

SOURCE: Timer runs, but dryer will not start

Onry, the last 3 letters of the model number is missing. If this is an electric dryer the thermal fuse may be open. On electric dryers if the fuse is open the motor won't run. On gas, the motor will run but will not heat. There are two thermal fuses on the electric model. One on the front of the blower housing and the other on the element enclosure. Check the one on the blower housing first. You will need to remove the door by removing the 4 screws that hold the door hinge and spacers on the other side. Lift up on the door and pull out. Now the front panel will pull out and the blower cover will be visable. If this is a gas dryer we'll have to look elsewhere. Catriver..post back

If your dryer doesn't work at all, it could be because of problems with:

Power from the house
Door switch
Thermal fuse
Wiring
Power from the house Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? If you plug something else into the outlet, does it work? If not, check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.

Door switch If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch.

Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing.

If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse to put the dryer back into operation. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.)

Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, burns and the connection breaks. In this has happened to your dryer, you need to replace the power cord and the terminal block inside the dryer to which the wire is attached.

If my assistance helped resolve this issue, please show your appreciation by rating how effective my advice was in resolving this issue.
Thank you,

SOURCE: Electric Maytag Neptune Dryer not heating up.

If the dryer won't heat up, the problem is typically either a blown thermal fuse or a faulty heating element. The thermal fuse is located just inside the back of the dryer on or near the exhaust duct. It is about one inch long. The thermal fuse and heating element can be tested using an ohm meter or multimeter. These components should have continuity. If either does not, that component is faulty. There is no telling if the moving around of the machine caused the problem or if the timing of the problem was coincidental. Sure hope this helps ya and best wishes.

THE DRYER WONT START,FILTER AND VENTS ARE CLEAR. HOW DO YOU FIX THIS PROBLEM?


Several reasons can cause a no start dryer condition. I'll start with the easy ones first. If a gas dryer, it runs off 120 volts. Check the house fuse or breaker or plug a light into the dryer outlet to make sure you have power. If outlet is OK then we have several dryer problems possible. If the dryer is electric, it run off 220 volts. You need a voltage tester to check the 220 house plug. Could still be a problem with the house 220 breaker. On the dryer itself, the first thing to check is the door switch. If the door switch is bad the dryer will think the door is open even when it is actually closed. Next, some dryers have a switch on the internal belt system. If the belt breaks, the dryer will not run.(only on some newer models). Couls also be a bad timer assembly. Some of these may need a tech to actually test since it requires taking the dryer apart to get to these item.

Maytag dryer stops after few minutes


ELECTRIC Dryer no heat or little heat, or shuts down to fast:

Check your venting and lint basket. Check blower for lint build up and blower wheel obstruction., test by trying to turn the wheel manually by hand (should be easy) May have to remove cabinet or front/back plate to get to it)

Next check the heating element itself with a meter for continuity OHMS CLOSED CIRCUIT. If not its defective.

Check dryer Terminal block prongs both outside prongs should give combined 220, and 110 each if u check 1 outside & 1 center (ground) prong. Also check house electrical outlet for full voltage. 220 because if u only get half or 110 volts you will be able to run the machine which uses only 110 to run motor but not the heater which uses a full 220,

Check the thermal cut off, the cycling and the hi limit thermostats.
For continuity or OHMS. If no ohms or resistance they need replacement.

Lastly check your moister sensor. ( located inside the dryer door usually) Especially if machine seems to shut down early and clothes are still wet.
Test with a meter at room temperature and it should show continuity.
A failed moisture sensor will affect the dryer run time in the automatic moisture sensing cycle but it will not affect the heating of the dryer or the timed cycle.

Hoy to fix my maytag PYE2300 dryer stop working. i push the start button and is does not power up... nor make any noise


Do you have any ticking coming from the timer control when you set the time? Be sure the dryer breaker on the breaker panel is not tripped. You may be missing one leg of your 220 volts from your breaker also. I you have a volt meter you may check to see if you have 220 in to your dyer. BE VERY CAREFUL AROUND POWER, THIS COULD INJURE OR KILL YOU IF YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING.

Model PYE2300 AYW the dryer turns on and provides heat but the drum does not spin


your belt has come off the drum or has broken. Take the model and serial number to parts house for replacement. The belt should be accessed through the back of the dryer. Good Luck on your repair. Make sure to disconnect electricty before removal of back.

Dryer quit working. Completely dead


Hi, If this is a whirlpool model dryer, try this: Normal 0 UNPLUG the dryer! Remove the rear panel of the dryer and locate the fuse. It is white and ¼” wide and 3” long. It is located on the blower housing. Remove the wires and check to see if it has continuity. If it does not, you need to replace it. If this is another brand dryer, please let me know the model # so I can assist yyou further.

Thanks
