Question about Maytag Atlantis MDE7400AY Electric Dryer
Can I replace this or repair this myself of do I need a repairman?
Thanks My sensor stopped working when we moved to a new house. I've been using the timed dry, but it is getting slower drying the clothes. I just open up the back and checked for lint clogs. I did find a lot of nails and other things my two year old must have shoved down the lint filter slot! I'm drying right now with the vent off to see if there are any clogs to the outside. I've read that if it dries well, then it's problem with the hose going to the outside. It's probably clogged or damaged. Our dryer hose is extremely long (I blame the architect) and goes through our crawl space. I suspect a problem there.
This can easily be fixed by yourself. Just punch in the model number and look for the part number on fixya.com

Once I discovered that the problem was not the dryer, I went into my crawl space and discovered the plastic duct was clogged with lint. Apparently the duct was not changed since the house was built over five years ago! The 4" duct was also duct taped to a 3" connector. Additionally the line ran into the crawl space at a 90 degree angle in a space that was only 2" wide! My husband adjusted the way the line ran into the crawl space and replaced it with a rigid aluminum duct. The auto sense works on my dryer and it takes only 30 min. to dry a load of laundry instead of 1-1/2 hours!
