Hello. I have a Maytag Performa Dryer. I had completed abiout 5 loads drying and the sixth load was a bedspread that I have dried in the dryer before. This time the dryer has stopped and will not start again. I have checked the door, it is closed. I have emptied the lint basket and also taken the silver "sleeve" in the back of the dryer off and cleaned through it, and replaced it. Still nothing for a few days now. When the dryer stopped, it was hot inside and it stopped mid-cycle.Please respond.Regina
Brand: Maytag Performa
Type of Appliance: Dryer
Emptied lint basket, cleaned silver "sleeve" in back, checked that door closes properly.
Please list model number?
Also does the light come on inside when you open the door?
what green accept button? I do not want a monthly membership,
you only click the green accept button when I give you an answer and you are satisfied! It only shows when I have answered your question and right now I'm only trying to get more info on your appliance to better assist you
No. I never noticed a light before, though.
Can you give me the model number please?
you will need to replace the thermal fuse!Disconnect the power cord from the electrical socket. Close the gas line valve leading to the dryer.Insert the tip of the putty knife into the gap between the top and front panels. Press the putty knife blade into the internal clips about two inches from each front corner to unlock them.Lift the top panel up and rest it on the wall behind the Maytag PYE2300AYW.Unplug the wires leading into the thermal fuse assembly from the heating element. The heating element is located behind the drum. Remove the screws that hold the thermal fuse assembly in place.Lift the old thermal fuse assembly out of the dryer cabinet.Position the new thermal fuse assembly into the dryer cabinet. Connect the wires into their sockets from the heating element.Install the screws that hold the thermal fuse assembly in place.Lower the top panel onto the dryer cabinet. Press down on the panel until it snaps into place.
