I hope you can help. I have a Maytag pye2000ayw electric dryer which stopped working (there is no power and the drum light does not even come on). I checked the house circuit and it was not tripped. I checked what I believe is the thermal fust with an ohm meter and it shows about 2 (there is continuity). I saw another website that indicated that when the fuse is cool it should show zero, but I saw another webiste that indicated that the fuse should show continuity. I then tried jumping the fuse, but the dryer still did not operate. Any ideas before I give up? Thank you for your help.

I also wanted to note that the dryer (not the exhaust tubing) was chock full of lint, so that was probably the reason that it failed in the first place.

I would start by checking the voltage at the wall outlet, seems like the light should come on when you open the door if there was power to the dryer unless your door switch broke, this feeds both the motor and the light. And check where the cord attaches to the terminal block, some wires might have burnt off of this terminal block, especailly if the dryer was clogged with lint, which means the vent from the dryer to the outside is blocked.

Thanks for the fast reply. The outlet just checked out ok. I also checked the wires at the block and everything looked in order but I did tighten them a bit. I also jest tested the door switch with my new multimeter and it operates fine. I am confounded--especially since I have never tried to fix one before. Thank you.

Maybe the problem is that I have not found the thermal fuse and have instead been testing a thermostat?  Is the thermal fust the one that is located just above the heater coil assembly?

No, the fuse is reference #5, under the heating element assy.

LOL... Why didnt I see this post earlier...

My machine is dead..No Light and no start up.  I read a previous post in here that the thermal fuse isnt the problem if the light doesnt work... Well when all was said and done after troubleshooting (5 minutes ago).  I found that the Fuse indeed is bad...in fact it is the one that is shown in the document. 

From tracing the wires all the way through.. the Thermal Fuse is on the Neutral side.  So that is why the light also goes out.

I only play an electrician at home...

I also have a Maytag performa pye2000ayw. All I'm looking for is the easiest way to replace the belt. How do you get the front panel off?

Finally got it taken apart, but it is nothing like the Maytags. It looks more like a Norge in the inside. No wonder I was having so many problems. Do you have a picture of the way the belt is suppose to be routed through the pulleys? That is the only thing I need Know( I hope).

Yes, there are many styles of Maytag dryers, and Norge is one of them as are the Amana and Admiral, etc, etc......   Here is belt threading 101, find the one that looks sort of like yours/.....

In the diagram showing the heating assembly, could you please tell me what #3 is? Is that a fuse also? I have lost power to my performa dryer model #pye2000ayw as well. We have replaced the plug to the wall thinking that was it since it wasn't getting the 220 needed, but was getting 110. We have power up to dryer, so cord is okay. When we get to the "on" button, however there is no power. We have checked the bulb thinking that a bad one could break the circuit, but that is ok as well.

Another question... is there an easy way to get to the fuse (#5 in diagram)? The space in there is very tight. Any helpful tips would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks....

 

P.S. I am by no means an electrician, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express...LOL!

Thank you. My husband used a voltage light meter and was getting signal up to the back of the dryer, but not internally. We went to local appliance part store and got a packet that included a fuse for electric, fuse for gas, and thermostat. Replaced thermostat and fuse and that dryer hums like new. The replacement kit cost $25.77. Well worth the "hassle" and saved us a bunch of money over paying for house call or replacing dryer all together.

Hi,

Is there a manual online for this model (PYE2000AYW).  I think I have a blown fuse but am not sure where I should start taking things apart to get at it.

 

Thanks...Mat
