You need to obtain access to the complete circumference of the drum to fit the belt. Depending on your machine you can either remove the front of the dryer, or release the rear bearing support so that you can slide the new belt over the drum. The belt then just slips over the motor pulley and you need to check on the belt tension, usually done by adjusting the motor or the tensioner.

Model pye2000ayw my dryer will not turn on. the timer seems to tick, which indicates there i s power (i assume), and when i press the timer knob to start the machine, it does not start.

make sure first that you have 240 volts to the machine from the house power panel, if so,then it could be a drum belt broken the dryer motor isnt turning or the dryer drum idler tensioner pulley is bad or the belt is off the pulley on either the motor or idler,you need to remove the top and front covers to examine this

Dryer is not drying and does not have heat. Maytag #PYE2000AYW


If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....

If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

check out this electric no heat tip...

Pye2000ayw maytag dryer has been working fine, now will not start Electric ok to dryer. I see the thermostat, but where do I look for the THERMAL FUSE? I was going to check that before contacting...

The most common reason it wont run or start is because the door switch has failed or came loose, Then there is a belt sensor that turns off when the belt comes loose or breaks. If the fuse you are talking about opens, the issue will be no heat but it will run

Electric dryer won't start

Check the breakers, then the wiring from the receptacle, the plug and then the wiring to the back of the dryer. If not there, then take the top off and look for the thermal fuse. Bypass it and see if it comes on. If so, replace it and you should be on your way.

Maytag Performa Pye2000ayw won't turn on-tried taping wires

If your dyrer has a thermal fuse, it will be on the blower housing (front), not on the heat element. It will be either white plastic os a button about half the size of other thermos. The fuse on the heat element will shut down the haet only. Hope this helps!
