Play in the motor shaft, up and down

the bearing of the motor are worn out. I think you will need to buy a replacement. TO my knowledge the individual parts for the motor are not readily available (I hope I am wrong about the parts...)

My Maytag dryer won't start when I hit the start button

My dryer light comes on for my Maytag SDE4606AYW dryer when you open the door and I can hear the timer clicking but when I hit start the motor doesn't even attempt to start but there is obviously power. My dad just installed a new power cord to the dryer but this is a seperate issue as we were obviously unable to check the motor before we got a cord for it. He has years of electrical experience so I'm assuming he connected the new cord right. Any ideas on fuses in the dryer or why it may not be getting power?

Pye2000ayw maytag dryer has been working fine,

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

Dryer cord hook up help

when you're in the back of the dryer,slide your cord through the metal bracket,stick the middle wire to the middle block connector,stick the right side cord wire to the right side of the block with the yellow and black wires and stick the left side of the cord to the left side of the block,now if you only see two connectors on the block then you have to buy a new block because the right side that had the yellow and black wires cooked and most likely damaged the block,so when you get the new block hook the yellow and black wires together on the right side of the block with the right side of your cord and then stick the other wires that are there in the same place on the new block with your cord,there should be one or two white wires in the middle and a blue or red wire on the left side but just take them off and put them on the same way as they are now onto the new block and you should be fine,hope this helps you out.

My Maytag dryer model pye2300 stopped working one

The timer on your dryer is more than likely bad. You already know what the timer is and where located. Not really that high priced thru ebay or an appliance repair outlet. Usually just a screwdriver and a small socket is all you need to change. Great sense of accomplishment when you finish and it works while saving a lot of $$$$. Stan

Electric dryer not turning on.

Check the thermal limiter fuse near the dryer motor.

Maytag Performa Electric Dryer Won't Start

check the blower wheel, sounds to me like it is loose on the blower motor, common on these dryers. One sure sign would be a warped filter and a rusted top. The blower aint putting out enough and the dryer is over heating .

Maytag performa Keeps blowing Thermal Fuse. Vents

something is still plugged with lint,if the vent line is long blow it out with a leaf blower to clean it out,you have to clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,if the filter is on top remove the vent line,remove the back panel,remove the lint filter and the two screws in front of it and remove the four screws and clean out the duct,if the filter is in front take off the bottom panel,remove the filter and clean the duct,also vac out the inside of dryer where the motor is,when the dryer gets to hot the thermal fuse pops as a safety so you still have a block somewhere

Same thing as other owners above...Dryer is five years old and is in need of a good cleaning of lint build-up. Model no. PYET444AZW.
I put a large load of clothes, which probably should have been spun again, into the dryer. When I returned the clothes were still basically wet, and the light in the dryer would not come on, and nor would the dryer start.
Tested the circuit breaker. OK. Tested the outlet with a tester pen. OK.
So in searching the internet for a solution, I found and read this string. Found the fuse, called my local appliance parts store and bought a thermal fuse kit for CDN$48 (incl sales tax). Kit came with three fuses.
Just opening the top of the dryer was a chore for a complete novice. However, the entire top is hinged at the back -- so at the front of the machine, just gently poked a slot screwdriver in the gap ringing the sides near the top, twist screwdriver and lift. Big fuse is easily accessible at the top near the back of the drum. It's a round thing about the size of a quarter screwed into a metal frame with two crimped-on wires coming out the top. One screw to removed the frame. Then detached the crimped-on wires, and removed the fuse from the frame with two more screws. You will need a smaller size ratchet or nut-driver.
While you have it apart you might as well change the second nickel-size fuse, too, although it is more of a pain.
You have to remove the coiled elements, which are basically just big springs. They come out with one screw on the right and a little finesse. The second fuse sits on the right-hand side of the metal box surrounding the coiled element. The screw for the coil also held the frame for the fuse in place, but the frame will still be secured to the box with a couple of small tongues. So you will still need to kind of lift and pull up on the frame housing the fuse. It requires some patience and finesse. Remove the crimped-on wires, and change the fuse.
Of the two smaller replacement fuses that came with the kit, there was one marked for a gas dryer and another for electric. (The big fuse was good for both.)
Then start putting it all back together. Took me two hours in all. But now that I have done it once, it would hopefully take me only 30 mins. now.
Finally, my replacement instructions suggested cleaning out your machine and removing the lint and other burdens which probably overloaded the fuse in the first place. So I bought one of those specialized lint brushes to clean out the trap and the exhaust hose and vent.

Maytag model PYE2300AYW won't do anything at all

Hi, Did you check the safety fuse on the right side of the heater housing? Little fuse with two white wires going to it?
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Dryer will not start when start knob is pushed

Without much more info all I can say is that it could be several things. First I would check your door switch to see if it looks damaged in any way or if something got stuck in it. Then I would check the knob by pulling it off and seeing if any gunk or dryer link has gotten stuck behind it. After that, you can start checking for blown fuses in the back which may need a repair call if you have never taken the back off of a dryer before. Also always check the tube going out of the back of the dryer to the outside. If it's not cleaned periodically it can cause clothes to not get dry and other problems.

Maytag dryer-thermal fuse how to change?

Go to Partselect.com. they will ask for model number and serial number of your dryer. They have every single little part for appliances but better yet they have video's on how to make the repairs. They also have schematics for every conceivable appliance made. the prices are very reasonable and the customer service is top notch!
