There is a sensor that the clothes have to touch when the drum spins. This sensor measures how wet the clothes are. If you don't have enough of a load in the dryer then the sensor wont detect the dryness. Or it could be a bad sensor or connection or main board.
That sounds to me like you need to replace the coils. They get intermittent with age. Work some then quit take a long time to cool down and work a little more when going bad. MY MAYTAG DRYER HOME REPAIR VIDS
Some dryers require timer cams to extend the cycles. The electronic dryers are programmable. The owners manual will tell you how to change the times. The owners manual can be downloaded at www.searspartsdirect.com.
how do i set this dryer to dry my clothes??? what is the right setting?? should i use the time dry setting or the more dry/less dry setting?? Clothes never dry???????????????????????????????????????????????????????
If you have'nt done it yet, my first suggestion would be to have the vent on the dryer (inside the dryer all the way to the fan chamber) and the dryer vent pipe to the outside thoroughly cleaned.
That is leading cause for dryers not drying completely.
Also, has the dryer always been a bit slow to dry cloths? If so, try leaving a window open the next time and see if it makes a difference. Some houses are sealed so tight, the dryer can't get enough air. A typical dryer will use up to 200 cu/ft of air per minute when drying. If there is not sufficient air, the cloths take longer to dry.
Good luck, let me know.
Could be 2 things... either your heat source is out of repair or your vent is blocked. Since you say it only gets warm I'll assume the problem is with the gas coils inside the unit. These parts are replaceable
Like every maytag dryer I have ever fixed you probably have a big old ball of lint in the filter housing. You also might have a loose blower wheel. Very common problem in these machines. To access the machine read more...
