Re: gas dryer

I believe that your vent door on the outside of the house is broken and or missing the flapper door or one of them. Even if it is just one of the little doors,and it is has 4 small door, it can let enough cool air back in causing condensation on the door which will cause a puddle to accumulate on the bottom of the tub or water marks on the door. The door and drum are hot and cold air will cause condensation.

Re: gas dryer

AJ...the only thing that is going to cause this is a blocked vent or pinched vent hose. You need to make sure that all the venting is clear to the outside.

My 1993 Maytag Clothes Dryer heats up, turns but does not dry the clothes unless I place an absorbent towel in with the items. It sweats water from the bottom of the dryer. What is going on?

To dry clothes, we need 2 things:
1-heat to evaporate the water from the clothing
2- adequate air flow to exhaust the moist air, thereby drying them.

Your heat seems to work.....if you stop the dryer mid-cycle, the clothes should be hot.

It sounds to me like you have a lack of air flow through the dryer. If you can get to the exhaust vent grill outside, then see if you get a large volume of air coming out of it. If not, then look for the louvers stuck closed on your outside grill, or any kind of blockage in your ductwork.

Perhaps undo the vent at the back of the dryer TEMPORARILY

Maytag Gas Dryer, 18 years old. Vents are clean through the entire system. The thermal igniter/coupler glows for a few seconds and sometimes ignites the gas and it's fine. However, sometimes it glows and...

Hello- You will need to have the Coils replaced, they are not holding the valve open consistently, it is a fairly common issue and presents itself as you describe. The parts are fairly inexpensive but you should have a Tech out to change them for you. These are great dryers and I would have the Tech look through it while it's opened up...drum wheels and belt should be checked for ware. Hope this helps, best regards.

Puddle of water in the dryer

The water comes from condensation inside the dryer ducting and drum. Heavy condensation can occur when the dryer exhaust ducting becomes clogged.

As your dryer runs, it exhausts warm moist air from your clothing. If lint becomes trapped inside the ducting, or if the ducting is kinked, this moisture has no where to go, but condensate inside the walls of the ducting and/or drum. If lint becomes accumulated it can act as a sponge and absorb this moisture.

Maytag gas dryer. Belt broken. How do I open and replace it?

On the right front and left front of the panel there are 2 phillips head screws. They are about 4 inches up from the floor. Remove these 2 screws,lift the door panel out then down to dislodge the top clips. Remove the door switch wires and set the door aside. Remove 4 screws from the front drum support. @ on the right,2 on the left. Remove the drum support.Install the belt around the drum. The smooth side of the belt goes against the drum. Re-attach all the parts in front. Remove the belt access panel on the rear of the dryer on the bottom right side facing the dryer to arrange the belt around the motor pulley and tension roller.

How do you replace the drum belt on a Maytag DE610 dryer ?

OK, this one's a few years old. First, of course, disconnect power to the machine. Second, remove the two phillips head screws, one at L and one at R near the bottom corners of the front panel. Third, pull the bottom of the front panel toward you and unhook it from the dryer's top. Swing it to the side. You do not have to disconnect the wires to the door switch. Fourth, remove the four 5/16 hex head screws holding the drum supports and set it aside. Fifth, put belt around the drum. The smooth side of the belt touches the drum. Sixth, belt goes to the motor drive pulley and then around the belt tensioning idler pulley. Seventh, put the drum support part back on and turn the drum by hand to make sure the belt tracks OK and has no twists in it. Eighth, finish reassembly and test. Note: genuine Maytag belts usually have installation instructions on the back of the package, with a couple diagrams.
