My maytage dryer mde308dayw drys the clothes, but it takes a longtime. The dryer heats, but water builds up around the inside of the door of the dryer.


You will need to clean the vent system on your dryer. Lint buildup restricts the airflow and will keep the clothes from drying.

Heat Element is working and drum spins, but no air is blowing?


First make sure that the dryer is vented properly, then check the blower wheel. A common problem is for the center of the blower wheel to get rounded out through wear and tear, allowing the blower wheel to spin on the shaft, thus not spinning at the same speed as the motor. I will attach a photo for reference. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

I have a May Tag dryer which blows the Thermal Fuse.


I am not 100% sure, but I think that the model that maytag had with that dryer. When I was working for my local dealer I had to change several of those, and it about 2 weeks time they blew.

Maytag Electric Dryer MDE308DAYW doesn't turn on at all when pressing the button


Since the vent was filled with lint I would check the High Limit termal fuse located on the front of the heater asm. It is best to replace the fuse and thermostat. These parts are part of a kit that can be purchased from your local supplier. The heater asm is located in trhe bottom left of the dryer. and looks like this
