send the model number.if this is electric try this.put it on air fluff and start it,if it has heat your element is bad,it's grounding out,part of the element is touching the metal case around the element.if it just did this on auto i would say change the cycling thermostat but on timed dry it just counts down like a clock.i saw this once and the element was bad,grounding out.it was tricky i thought it was the timer also.
Bad Heating Element Most clothing dryers heat up and dry clothes with a heating element inside the appliance's body. Maytag dryers are no different and sometimes these heating elements break down or burn out, making the dryer cease to get hot. Make sure the dryer is unplugged and the breakers that run the dryer are switched off before inspecting so you don't electrocute yourself. The heating element is in the bottom panel of the dryer and is often a silver part which heats up when the dryer is on. Sometimes the heating element will be cracked or burned out, which means it is broken. Other times it won't look damaged but may not be working. Replace the heating element if this occurs, to see if this is the main problem. Broken Motor Maytag dryers have motors which turn the dryer drum, tossing the clothes so that air and heat can help dry them out completely. When the dryer drum is not turning it means there is something wrong with the motor or that the motor is not getting power. Unplug the dryer and take it apart to inspect the motor. Once you have found the motor, plug the dryer back in and use a meter to see if the motor is getting power. If it is, and isn't working, then there is something wrong with the motor and how it is operating. If the motor isn't getting power, then there is something wrong with the circuits or fuses which disperse power to the motor itself. Bad Switch When Maytag dryers won't tumble or heat the clothes which have been put inside of them, this means there could be a number of different things wrong. However, sometimes there's a simple solution to this problem: The switch on the door of the dryer itself may be faulty or not making the electric connection it should to allow the dryer to run. This is a cheap fix and worth troubleshooting before tearing your Maytag dryer apart. Remove the switch and inspect the two leads to make sure they haven't broken or are still transferring electricity. If they aren't you will have to replace the switch
Need a new heating element. had a look around cant find one for yours, maytag did recall a lot of heating elements due to severe problems. they are not a very good brand. i think the model is too old for a new element. Time for a new dryer i think. try Hotpoint or LG
Hello there: If there is no heat or heat sometimes please try these solutions Heating elementOften a dryer heating element burns out, but
doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is
simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with
an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to
replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.Thermal fuseOn many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to
the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about
an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white
plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You
can't re-set it.)WiringA common problem is for the main wiring connection
from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because
the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be
only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to
the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is
Old School Dryer Nice one. probably the element. Take the dust cover off the back and check the compents. It ain't always the element if you have blockage then them fuses blow. 1= limit blows when the vent is cloggedCheck these area alsoYour OLD SCHOOL SERVICE MANUAL MATE!
Locate the heater element ,disconnect one or both ends. ohm it out with an ohm meter. Zero reading means tha it is open and needs to be replaced. Maxium or full; scale reading on the right side means that it is shorted and needs to be replaced. Middle reading on the meter and I would look elsewhere,such as; Voltage coming to the element if you are used to dealing with 220 volts, live.
