Question about Dryers

1 Answer

It is a Maytag PYG2300AWW (gas). It starts up and works fine for a while then the heat cuts out and the burner doesn't relight until you shut it off and let it sit for a while then does the same thing. I had it apart and did a thorough cleaning but that didn't help. Any suggestions what to check? Thanks, Eldon

The oven comes on an heats up to temperature , after a short while the oven no longer continues to heat. The contol panel shows on in bake mode , but the oven continues to cool.

Hello Brian;

You did not provide any information on the unit that you have. After you open the oven door there is a metal label on the face of the oven. Send that to me so I can see what you have.

1.) Some ovens have a single or dual broiler thermocouple.

2.) Some ovens have a separate control board for the oven.

3.) Some ovens have a Infinite switch.

Ignition works but doesn't stay on long enough to heat dryer

its either the hi-limit switch is weak on the burner tube,or the gas valve coils on the gas valve are weak and can no longer keep the gas valve open to supply gas,if they appear warm after operation they are most likely bad

My Maytag pyg2300aww will not shut off when I open the door,I just replaced the high limit and thermal fuse..Everything else is working fine..Thankx

I would take a look at the door switch, its a push button on the top of the door opening. The spring might have went, causing the switch to stay closed, hence it staying running

My gas dryer starts normal but then the flame stops and it cycles trying to relight it

Replace the 2 coils on the burner . After warming up , 1 will " short " internally , opening the circuit . After the dryer cools down , completely , it will work again , until the coil warms up . Only 2 screws hold the bracket holding the coils on , Gas does not have to be turned off to replace these coils . Easily replaceable .

Maytag gas dryer would run half cycle until it would shut down. now it struggles to start and then stops. pyg2300aww model.

Good day,
Every indication the motor is failing. Not uncommon.
Could be a bearing dragging badly, or idler assembly bearings, doing the same thing, but
A complete tear down of the dryer would need to be done to verify the problem.
Once again,figure the motor as the problem.

Thank you for using FixYa
