Bad Heating Element
Most clothing dryers heat up and dry clothes with a heating element inside the appliance's body. Maytag dryers are no different and sometimes these heating elements break down or burn out, making the dryer cease to get hot. Make sure the dryer is unplugged and the breakers that run the dryer are switched off before inspecting so you don't electrocute yourself. The heating element is in the bottom panel of the dryer and is often a silver part which heats up when the dryer is on. Sometimes the heating element will be cracked or burned out, which means it is broken. Other times it won't look damaged but may not be working. Replace the heating element if this occurs, to see if this is the main problem.
Broken Motor
Maytag dryers have motors which turn the dryer drum, tossing the clothes so that air and heat can help dry them out completely. When the dryer drum is not turning it means there is something wrong with the motor or that the motor is not getting power. Unplug the dryer and take it apart to inspect the motor. Once you have found the motor, plug the dryer back in and use a meter to see if the motor is getting power. If it is, and isn't working, then there is something wrong with the motor and how it is operating. If the motor isn't getting power, then there is something wrong with the circuits or fuses which disperse power to the motor itself.
Bad Switch
When Maytag dryers won't tumble or heat the clothes which have been put inside of them, this means there could be a number of different things wrong. However, sometimes there's a simple solution to this problem: The switch on the door of the dryer itself may be faulty or not making the electric connection it should to allow the dryer to run. This is a cheap fix and worth troubleshooting before tearing your Maytag dryer apart. Remove the switch and inspect the two leads to make sure they haven't broken or are still transferring electricity. If they aren't you will have to replace the switch

I placed a small load of clothes in the dryer turned it on and came back to the dryer 5 minutes later and smelled like somthing was burning. I don't believe the dryer ever started. I unplugged the cord...


Normally what happens in this case is the dryer belt snaps. You can test this by turning the dryer on without any clothes in it. If the drums heats up but does not turn/rotate the first thing to check is your belt. You could check the belt yourself if you have the knowhow or the expertise or you could get someone to have a look for you.

Hi, my Maytag Perfoma PYE/G200 doesn't dry the clothes in one cycle. It usually takes 2 cycles to get damp dry. Also, the dryer sometimes won't start unless it has been sitting for 10 or 15 minutes and...


Hi,

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have nottaken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then youneed to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should takeplace. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causesfor your dryer to fail.

How to lift the top of Maytag perfoma PYE3300AYW?


You will only need a putty knife. Unplug the dryer. In between the front panel and top there are 2 clips holding the top down on the left and right side. The clips will need to be depressed one at a time toward the back of the dryer and lift up on the top at the same time. The thermal fuses are both located on the element mounting assembly on the back top of the dryer. They will measure 0 ohms if good. Click this link, schematic diagram, number 3 is a picture of one of the clips. They are located anywhere from 2 to 6 inches in from sides of the washer.
Thank you.

Matag NeptuneDryer MD5500AWW - intermittent heat - not drying


this is joyce
It is as you guessed your sensor. it is usually located in door but some models are in back of machine on inside, go online download document papers go to maytag.com put in model# and then download your model # and it will show you where your sensor is located, it should be simple to replace. I had the same problem with my dryer.
I am glad you said you checked the dryer lines because if these get clogged up they will cause the dryer not to dry the clothes correctley. very smart....if you need me to help let me know.

thanks,

joyce
