Question about Maytag Dryers
Have a Maytag Model DG482, Series 02. Heavy Duty, Auto Dry Control. This is a gas dryer. It takes 4 cycles of 1 hour each, total of 4 hours to dry a single queen size bed's sheets and pillowcases. Clearly something isn't functioning correctly. Is this something worthwhile to fix or is it better to simpy buy a new machine ??
Most of the time your complaint is the home owners house venting.run a load with the venting detached[it wont hurt a thing] if ok then must clean venting till dried as well as with out venting.if still long dry times first must make sure air ways in dryer are clean[should have good air flow at back if hand held there] and may need to remove front to clean lint filter area.and inspect blower ,making sure mounted to shaft and not worn in the center[blower key way, inside the hole where motor shaft goes thru blower]you dryer only has one element so if you have heat its heating.if you did all above and have problem still can be electronic[thermostats,timers etc........but i have fixed 1000s of dryers and their having problems are rarer.i hope that helps God bless ,tom
