Maytag model PYE2200AYW
« on: September 12, 2020, 03:43:36 PM »

 I was given this model electric dryer as a trade in today for an older Speed Queen unit. That  Maytag design is one of the most difficult arrangements to work on  in terms of repair to the heating coil and thermal fuse. Only other design I think is bad news is the GE type.  I was able to repair it but  dont think I will ever want to make a habit of it. Any comments from other techs is invited.

Your PYE2200AYW "Norge-tag" dryer is a long-lasting dryer but yes, changing the thermal fuse isn't fun.  Changing the belt isn't all that fun either as it's hard to get your hands in the pull the tensioner back.  The good is that the timers and motors rarely go bad.
