There are a couple of things that could be causing this problem for you. First off check and make sure that you have good air flow coming from the vent outside the house. If it feels weak then that is probably your problem. If there isn't enough air getting out the thermostat will shut off the heating element for safety reasons. If the air flow feels good then the problem is probably with your thermal fuse. That is a nice cheap part running around 15 dollars at your local appliance repair shop. The thermal fuse is located on the heating element housing and has two small wires coming off of it. Make sure you unplug the dryer before working on it though. Let me know if you have any other questions and let me know if this was helpful for you. Good luck and I am glad I could help.

Maytag dryer stops running after 10-15 seconds.


Check the exhaust vent in the dryer and the one going outside, sounds like it's plugged. If it's plugged the dryer will get hot real quick and shut off so it doesn't catch fire...

I have a Maytag Gas Dryer Model# MDG508DAWW. It comes on and tumbles but won't heat up. I bumped the back of it with my hand and it came on and got hot then a few minutes later it started getting cold...


This is usually the dryer coils have failed. They tend to fail as they heat up. They are inexpensive and easy to replace. Here is a link that should help Replacing the dryer coils

Ihave a maytag atlantis gas dryer model mdg7400aww that when I first start it up it gets warm but then stops heating? what is the problem


The operator coils get hot and quit on these ,when they get a little age on them, quite difficult to diagnose. If the coil feels hot to the touch after failure then that is a clue. f00c98f.jpg

The dryer doesnt get hot enough to dry clothes


Pull the dryer out and remove the lint hose . Turn on the dryer and feel if there is good air flow and if you feel heat . If there is good air flow and heat , dry a load of clothes , to see if they dry normally .
If there is not good air flow , then the blower wheel is probably stripped and needs to be replaced . If there is good air flow and heat , then the problem is in the vent ducting , between the dryer and to where it vents to the outside . Dryer could be pushed back too far , causing the hose to " kink " , restricting the air flow to the outside .
Remember , a dryer either heats or doesn't heat . If no heat , then a dryer problem exists . If heat , but dryer does not dry , then a vent problem is the cause ( except for maytag , which the blower wheel sometimes strips out ) .

My PYE3200AYW runs but will not heat. Changing


Check for a blown thermal fuse or a faulty heating element. Both components should be located inside the rear of the dryer2.gif. The thermal fuse is about an inch long and is usually attached to or near the exhaust duct. Both components can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity will indicate a faulty component. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Maytag atlantis gas dryer, will start, heat up but then no heat


Try running it with the vent disconnected and feel the air coming out of the dryer. It should have good flow. If it dries good, your pipe may be clogged.
