Maytag Performa dryer venting

When we bout our Maytag Performa PYE3200AYW electric dryer years ago, it was modified at the appliance shop to route the vent out the bottom. The shop replaced the original internal rigid vent pipe with aluminum foil flex. I want to change it to vent out the back using a rigid vent pipe from the internal blower to the opening in the back. Which type of rigid vent pipe should I use, aluminum or steel? Steel seems to get hot. Will steel get too hot inside the cabinet?

My current internal vent runs out the side, I need to change it to the back but cannot find directions for it. I have the model Mdg6800aww.

You are always better off using steel on these kinds of conversions and do not worry about how hot it gets,..Aluminum will get hot too. Steel is more rigid and less likely to dimple in while installing or hooking up the external vent system... Hope this helps..

Maytag Performa Electric dryer timer is bad


Look up an appliance parts store in your area. If there is no appliance store, try www.searspartsdirect.com.

If it does not turn off during timed dry then it for sure has gone bad. If it takes a while on timed dry then it is most likely that your thermal fuse/ valve coils are going bad.

Maytag dryer starts to heat then it stops #pye3200ayw


There are a couple of things that could be causing this problem for you. First off check and make sure that you have good air flow coming from the vent outside the house. If it feels weak then that is probably your problem. If there isn't enough air getting out the thermostat will shut off the heating element for safety reasons. If the air flow feels good then the problem is probably with your thermal fuse. That is a nice cheap part running around 15 dollars at your local appliance repair shop. The thermal fuse is located on the heating element housing and has two small wires coming off of it. Make sure you unplug the dryer before working on it though. Let me know if you have any other questions and let me know if this was helpful for you. Good luck and I am glad I could help.
