Belt installation is too loose on Maytag dryer model # pye2300ayw? Trying to fix it need a diagram??


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
If the belt is loose it is most likely stretched / worn and should be replaced:

See routing here: http://www.repair-help.com/kb/index.php?article=105

The drive belt is item 5 this link:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=46651&diagram_id=695560#d695560

The top must be opened and the front panel removed to install the belt.
Here is a link to step by step "how to" instructions.

Make sure to inspect the rear drum rollers while you have the dryer open. Item 7 this link:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=46651&diagram_id=695560#d695560
Flat drum rollers or hard to turn rollers will cause the new belt to fail prematurely.

Additionally if the front or rear drum seals are worn it can cause the belt to be loose. These are glued on with high temp adhesive.
The front seal is item 10 this link:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=46651&diagram_id=28505910#d28505910

The rear seal is item 2 this link:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=46651&diagram_id=28505913#d28505913

High temp adhesive: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/part_details.aspx?part_id=4284239

By replacing the items above your dryer will operate like new again and extend the life of your dryer by many years.

The barrel doesn't turn


This dryer is belt driven. You did not mention if the motor was running or not but, I am going to assume that the motor is in fact running and the drum is not turning. There is not a belt safety switch on this dryer so if the belt breaks the motor will run but the drum will not turn.

How do I replace the dryer belt on a maytag dryer model #pye2300ayw. How do you connect to the pulley and get the belt around the drum?


lift the hood by pushing in clip on either side. remove two screw at top inside to remove front. unplug first. thats as far as we go there. remove belt out of dryer. take new belt and put on drum groove side down, get it uniform around drum. putting belt on pulley might be easier to do from behind for you. two screws to remove small access panel.take belt under pulley and over and around motor pulley. turn drum slowiy to make sure belt is not twisted. this belt can only go on a couple ways and one is obviously wrong. good luck.

Maytag pye2300ayw hums when you push in to start, sometimes will get started but not always


Sounds like the motor is weak and needs replaced. Or something is binding the drum and not letting it turn freely.

Maytag dryer model#PYE2300AYW turns on but makes loud noise when tumbling. whats wrong with it?


If it is a metallic noise, it can either be a pulley with bad bearings, or possibly the rear drum support/ bearing. If squeeling noise, possile belt. I would open the unit and check it out. Keep in mind that, in many cases, the repair can be more than buying a new unit. I bought a good, new dryer from Lowes for around $200. It would be hard to get a repair guy to come out and do the repair for that amount. Choose wisely grasshopper.

PYE2300AYW Dryer how do you remove the drum?


Once you loosen the screws from the spindle or axle, you should be able to pull(gently) the drum out. Be careful not to damage the rubber wheels. My question is why do you need to pull the drum anyway? It has nothing mechanical or electrical to it. Are you wanting to put a belt on?

I have a maytag model # pye2300ayw while in the middle of drying a load a clothes it just quit i turned it back on now the timer is the only thing clicking nothing else is happening


Check your breaker, then the wiring in the back. It sounds like it could be your thermal overload switch is bad. Does the drum turn on even though it may not have heat? This will help me analyze it.

Take the top off the dryer and you should find it located at or near the drum.
