Question about Maytag PYE2300AY Electric Dryer

2 Answers

I have a Maytag Performa Dryer that won't heat The medium and low heat cycle stopped working some time ago but the high cycle has worked fine until now. It won't heat at all now and have checked the element, fuse and thermostat and all seems to be ok. Do you know of anything else to try.

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

The wiring diagram is here:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/frame_diagram.aspx?diagram_id=28505914&pkw_=basket&model_id=46651&NewWindow=1

Possible causes...

1. The heat selector control L-1 ((RED is input power)) to C, to the safety themostat
You should read C of the heat selector control to terminal 3 of the motor switch.
ALSO you should read terminal 1 of the heat selector control to terminal 3 of the motor switch.
2. The 377K ohm resistor
3. Motor switch terminals 3 - 4 (You can bypass this by having someone squeese the brown disk on the back of the switch) Or jumper it
4. Timer Heating element Power from terminals H and R.

Make sure you have 230 VAC input power on the terminal block where the power cord connects L 1 to L 2 (outside 2 terminals) If you only have 115V across L1 and L2 reset the circuit breaker. If you still do not have 230VAC inspect the wall recepticale.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

LG Dryer low heat doesn't work


It may be as simple as checking your lint filter.
If you use fabric softeners sheets, they tend to clog the lint filter holes. Washing it with soap and water will restore it back to normal and will allow the circulation that the dryer needs to properly dry your clothes.

Maytag washer squeaks when spin cycle stops


We have a Maytag Performa G3300 that we bought on 8/13/2001. It still works great, but on 2/25/10 it stopped heating. We found that by removing the front panel and vacuuming the accumulated lint on the inside of the dryer and the door, the problem was resolved. There were no parts to replace, just vacuuming.

Maytag performa dryer suddenly stopped working, as if no power. i replaced both fuses and it worked. ran for about 15 mins and stopped again. any suggestions?


did it blow the fuses a second time.try this .put your dryer on a cycle that wont call for heat and turn it on.if the heat strips are not on and it still blows a fuse it is the motor.if the heat strips are on and it blows a fuse the heat strips are the trouble.

Maytag performa dryer doesn't fully heat


A couple of suggestions. STOP, be sure the gas it turned off before disconnecting the line. Move it to an open area and check all venting. A good cleaning makes a huge difference. I believe your problem to be the heating coil is on it's way out, "works sometime". Write down the Make, Model, Seriel Number & Year of MFG...someone may ask for it..Check Your local appliance store for price & availablity Easy to replace on most model dryers.
When reattaching the gas line, be safe not to overtighten the coupler. A safe test for leaks is NOT a match... a drop or two of dishsoap around the fittings will bubble if it is not sealed. Good Luck
