Question about Maytag PYE2300AY Electric Dryer

Maytag drier model MDE5806AYW

My drier is 18 months old. It shuts itself off in about 30 seconds. Until today, it has worked fine. The only thing out of the ordinary I can think of that has happened was a lightening storm last night.

    Exact same problem with my dryer, it will turn on for 3-10 seconds and then shuts off. We also had a lightning storm last night and lost power for I don't know how long. Coincidence? I think not. Our dryer is also only about a year old.

It's actually the circuit board. The lightning struck near our house and the power went out. If we were to get a new circuit board the dryer would work fine. The lightning must have short circuited it. Which means the dryer wasn't properly grounded...

Intermittent Start (expanded explanation)


Lint will jam the start/run switch on the motor. Vacuum out the motor real good and check that the switch moves freely, and all the wires to it are plugged in good.

Maytag Dryer Model med5630TQ0, run it for 30 minutes works great run a second time for 30 minutes it automatically shuts-off and than I have to wait until it cools off to use heat option


Try cleaning out the vent in the wall and also check the vent hose to ensure its not kinked. If good air flow coming out of vent on back of dryer while running you could have a bad motor. Have to be disassembled to check it professionally.

Mgr8775 keeps shutting off during bake


mine does the same, the sears tech investigated today and was told by the tech support that it is a known issue and the ignitor module and burner need replaced. I'm mad at getting a replacement range [for another maytag failure under warranty] with a known issue that leaves us without a reliable oven for a month!

The compressor is shutting off on overload after running for a few seconds. The overload cools down and starts the compressor running again until the overload heats up and shuts the unit off again.

Here is the link to the wiring diagram for your dryer, I'm assuming you are looking for the wires as they connect to the incoming power cord? They appear to be the only ones with that specific wire color code.
Hope this helps!

Since it's under warranty, I would check with MayTag or a local Maytag-authorized servider: http://maytag.com/support/service_parts.jsp
