If the dryer is heating ,then it is going to be one of 2 things

  1. Drive belt worn or broken.
  2. Motor not starting due to a number of reasons.
  3. You need to remove the top cover to check the belt
Hope this helps with your prob.

Replaced belt tub turns but wont turn with load in it.Belt is 87/3/4-1/2 in length on model desf-l-2 dyrer


Sounds like you may need to adjust tension on the belt. To do that you have to expose the motor which will be in the back side of dryer and in the lower left or right hand side. Remove the access panel or on some models you have to remove entire back and then you will see the motor, there will probably be 2 bolts that need to be loosened on motor then you will need a small pry bar to apply tension on motor to tighten belt. Retighten bolts and put back cover on.

Dyrer runs without clothes in it, but once you add the clothes it shuts off.


the motor has been hot and needs to be replaced if it runs with no cloths but wont run with a load or does the motor run but the tub not turn if this is the case you may just need a belt

Maytag dyrer mdg6200aww the heating systwm does not stay on


Remove the vent from the rear of the dryer.
With no clothes in the dryer and the dryer set for hi heat run the dryer several minutes.
With a accurate thermometer check the exhaust vent temperature.
It should be 135 to 160 degrees.
If it is, you are OK. Just need to clean your vent and connecting tubing.
If not, replace your gas valve coils.
