SOURCE: how to remove lint tray receiver: maytag dryer model#pye2300ayw

Unplug first with a straight blade screwdriver, pry up on the top of the dryer where the front wall of the dryer and the top meet. there are 2 screws 1 on each side inside the dryer where the sides and front meet, remove them and unhook the wires from the door switch. the whole front will now pull out and up, now open the door remove the 2 screws at the bottom of the door opening and the whole lint tray will pull out. sounds like a lot but only takes about 5 minutes.

SOURCE: Maytag Epic dryer won't start

hi there,

if it beeps it means that the keypad is sending a signal to the control board to start it but it doesn't. since the control board sends a signal to the motor to start the dryer to spin. does the dryer hum?

SOURCE: How do I remove the lint housing of Maytag Neptune dryer

Hi Kate,

Gaining access to the lint housing sounds more difficult than it is. As a matter of fact, I could get to it and have it back together in the time it takes me to type out the instructions!

Tools needed;
1.) Phillips screwdriver
2.) 5/16" nut driver or socket

UNPLUG THE DRYER FIRST!!! Or risk a funky new hair-do...

Open the door and remove the four screws at the hinges then remove the door. Opposite the hinges, you'll see 4 more screws, remove these too. Now grasp the front panel on both sides near the top and pull it toward you. Lean it out to about a 45 degree angle and lift it off the clips that are holding it (at the bottom).
Now you'll see the lint trap housing. Look around the housing, you'll probably see a yellow wire near the 5 o'clock position, remove it. Now, on either side, you'll see four 5/16" screws... Don't remove the top ones, just remove the three below the top ones. You can now pull the entire panel off of the frame for cleaning.
Rebuild in the reverse order (and don't forget to re-connect that yellow wire!)

There ya go! Please don't forget to rate this as "FixYa", OK

SOURCE: I have a Maytag Epic Z. The dryer turns on but with no heat

There are several things that can cause this. 1 st the thermal fuse(white plastic piece with 2 wires attached to it, then the igniter, is it glowing orange when you start the dryer, then the flame sensor located on the side of the burner assembly and finally the gas coils located on the gas valve close to the burner assembly. If the igniter is glowing orange and then going out without ignition change the gas coils, Hope this helps,

Maytag epic error code f01

Maytag Epic Gas Dryer

This error code below would be indicated when attempting to start a drying cycle, or after activating the diagnostic test mode.

E1 - flashes if the thermistor is open.

The machine control electronics monitors the exhaust temperture using the thermistor, and cycles the heater relay on and off to maintain desired temperature.
Begin with an empty dryer and a clean lint screen.
  1. Plug in dryer or reconnect power.
  2. Set the following configuration:
Door - must be firmly closed Press CONTROL ON Press CYCLE END SIGNAL (Loud) Press HOLD TO START

If after 60 seconds, E1 or E2 flashes in the display and the dryer shuts off, the thermistor or wire harness is either shorted or open.

  • Unplug dryer or disconnect power
  • Check wire connection at the machine control electronics and thermistor.
  • If wire connections are good, remove the two wires from the thermistor and replace the thermistor.
  • Plug in dryer or reconnect power
NOTE: All thermistor resistance measurements must be made while dryer is unplugged or disconnected from power.

Thermistor resistance: 10 Celsius ----- 19-22 kOhm
16 C ------------ 15-17 kOhm
21 C ------------- 11.5-13.5 kOhm
27 C ------------- 8.5-10.5 kOhm
32 C ------------- 6.8-8.8 kOhm
38 C ------------- 5-7 kOhm

If E1 or E2 doesn't flash in the display, the connections to the thermistor are good. Therefore, check exhaust temperature value at any or all of the temperature levels.
Hold a glass bulb thermometer capable of reading from 32 to 82 Celsius (90-180 F) in the center of the exhaust outlet.

Table below shows correct exhaust temperatures:

F01 means the main control board or "micro computer" has detected an internal short. Unfortunately, the only way to correct this issue is to replace the control board itself. It's under the top panel in the front right corner.

The washer will not start. It reads an error code F01.

The only thing which will solve an F01 error code is a new machine control board. These is a catastrophic control board failure. Here is the board to order.

My Maytag washer has a flashing F 15. What does that mean?

The following list of codes indicates an electronics communication problem with the washer: * Epic® washer - F05, F07, F09, F10, F11, F13, F14, F15, F21, F22, and FdU
* Epic ZTM washer - F01, F11, F23, F24, F27, F28, F29, F30, F31, and F33

To remove the error display, press Pause/Off or Pause/Cancel twice.


If Pause/Off or Pause/Cancel does not work:
  1. Unplug washer or disconnect power for one minute.
  2. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
  3. Re-select the cycle and press Start.
NOTE: If the error remains on the display, call for service.

Hope this helps.

Maytag EpicZ has a F01 code. The machine will not start!

I have had the same problem and I just fixed it. The f01 code was flashing and I left the machine on and pulled the cord out of the outlet and it restarted. Mine would not start, it would power on and you could select the type of wash and make any selection, but once you pressed start it would start flashing f01. I left if flashing and pulled the plug and it started working immediately.
