Question about Maytag MDE2600 Electric Dryer
I have a Frigidaire dryer. The back and top of dryer get extremely hot. The clothes take an excessive amount of time to dry. A load which normally took 50-60 minutes to dry takes about 2 hours.
First thing to check for is blocked airflow. Check the dryer as well as the venting from the back of the dryer to the outside of the house good airflow is neccessary. You could remove the venting from the back of the dryer and run a load to see if that helps. Do not leave it off as it is exhausting lint and if a gas dryer spent fuel.

Good afternoon friend, thanks for the post!
I see from your post that your Frigidaire dryer is getting extremely hot on the top and back. Have you checked to make sure that it is getting proper ventilation? I would verify nothing is blocking your dryer from ventilating which could be causing the appliance to heat up. If it continues to heat up I would reach out to a technician to come diagnose and repair your dryer. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

While your in there check the blower wheel. Make sure it is spinning and tight. Here is a link that should help http://appliancehelponline.com/dryernoisyge.html
