Question about Maytag Dryers
If multiple high limit switches sense an 'above the upper limit temp' then in all probability it is working correctly but your exhaust system may not be ( meaning your exhaust vent is restricting air flow or your blower is damaged or has an obstruction in it) Check the entire vent system all the way out and including the end cap for restrictions. The back pressure from the blower not being able to move air adequately may be contributing to excess drying times and high temp condition..In fact.. you just might have a problem with the blower itself.. so check for a fairly brisk flow of air coming out.. You can unhook the vent line for a second or two indoors to get a feel for what is coming out of the dryer at the point of exit, then use that for comparison to what you get at the end of your duct system..Obviously you do not want to run the dryer that way and have those gases fill up a room but it's OK to do a short test drive like that. You may have some losses in the vent but it should not be dramatic. Also... make certain your lint trap is free of lint. These tips should help you zero in on the real problem.. Hope this helps...
