What part is required when clothes take 2 to 3 cycles to dry.
For model number PYG2300AWW
PartSelect logo
Hello Suzanne, Thank you for the question. Normally this is caused by weak or defective M Series New Style Coil Kit. The coils can be tested using a multi-meter tool. The 2-prong coil read 1,000-1,300 ohms. The 3-prong coil will read 1,300-1,400 ohms across prongs 1 and 2, and 500-600 ohms across prongs 1 and 3. Please let us know if you have any further questions!

Dryer has become very loud and viberates
For model number PYG2300AWW
PartSelect logo
Hello Randall, Thank you for your question. Our sources has a couple suggestions, the first part we suggest checking is the multi rib belt for your model under part PS346995, that could be causing the excess noise or shaking, and if it is not the belt, then its likely to be the rear drum support in the kit for your model under part PS2162268. We hope this helps!

I have a Maytag. The dryer drum belt keeps breaking. I replaced the idler pulley. It did not make a difference.

Hello Joseph, Thank you for the question. We suggest checking the Pulley and the drum to make sure they are not misaligned. Also check the Motor Pulley for any damage or wear that could cause damage to the belt. We hope this helps!

No Heat
Lift the top. Remove (2) screws holding the front of the dryer in place. Lift the front off the 2 retaining clips on the bottom of the dryer. The hardest part of the install was removing and replacing the igniter. A couple of helping hands from the girlfriend to hold the parts in place while I replaced the two screws was very helpfull. Installing the multi rib belt was also very easy with the help of a second pair of arms to reach under the drum to thread the belt onto the tensioner. The lint filter, of coarse was just a matter of throwing the old cracked one away and replacing w/ the new.

Dryer ran but would not heat
PartSelect showed seven different possibilities why the dryer wouldn't heat. I removed the two screws to remove the bottom panel and turned the dryer on and noticed that the heating element that ignites the gas was working fine. This meant that it was not getting gas so it could be the gas valve or one of the two gas valve coils which are located on top of the gas valve. I borrowed my neighbor"s ohm meter and touched the two probes on the coils terminals to check for continuity and found that one of the coils read zero. I then took both of the coils out by removing two screws and tested each coil again. One coil read 500-850 and the other read zero. This meant that it was no good so I called for the part and received it in three days. I reassembled the parts and turned the dryer on and it fired up after a few seconds. It works as good as new. The part plus shipping was less than $30. My repairman would have charged me $150-$200. While the dryer was apart I gave it a good cleaning with a vacuum and a toothbrush in delicate areas. I also removed and cleaned the lint trap housing by removing two nuts. I didn't know much about gas dryers, but thanks to PartSelect I easily fixed it myself.
