Question about Maytag Dryers

1 Answer

Call the Maytag man because I dropped a toothbrush down dryer lint vent?

Is it possible to unscrew and remove the dryer door to get a toothbrush that slid under the spinner when I was cleaning lint. Are there any Maytag men in zip 07834?

How to clean my dryers vents


The best thing to do is to remove the lint trap and use a thin nozzle hose to **** out any debris inside where you can't see. Also, remove the dryer vent in the back and vacuum there as well. For a more detailed cleaning there you can remove the front by taking the four screws that are located in the door area, one through each hinge and the other two directly across on the other side. With the cover off you can then vacuum any stray lint that may have escaped the exhaust system and is a possible fire hazard.

Maytag dryer will not restart immediately after drying a load. has to cool down


try cleaning out your dryer vent. Remove your lint trap and use a flexible wire brush to clean deep inside, then remove your dryer vent hose and make sure all lint is clean from the dryer side of the vent and the vent hose all the way to the out side vent.
Sounds like it may be clogged with a build up of lint

Maytag dryer model #PYE2200AYW how to remove lint compartment once I removed the screws in the front


Instructions
Things You'll Need:

Nylon scrub brush Liquid detergent Vacuum

1.Remove the lint screen, which usually is located in the front of a Maytag dryer. Gently pull it up and out, and remove the lint with your fingers.
2. Use hot water and wet both sides of the lint screen. Use a nylon scrubbing brush and a little bit of liquid dish soap or laundry detergent to scrub the screen clean of lint and fabric softener buildup. Rinse both sides thoroughly with hot water. Towel dry and replace the lint screen when dry. Maytag states that owners should do this every six months.
3.Clean the exhaust every two years, as recommended by Maytag. Whoever installed your dryer had to install the exhaust vent. Unplug your dyer and unscrew the vent from the back of the dryer. Use a vacuum attachment or your hands to remove any clogged lint and replace. You may need to do the same thing to the other end that is attached to the wall.
4.Clean the dryer cabinet. According to Maytag, a professional should remove lint from the dryer cabinet every two years. This may be a good time to have him clean out the vents as well, rather than doing it yourself, if preferred.
5.Clean your lint screen on a regular basis. Maytag states that you should clean the lint screen with your fingers before using the dryer each time. Be sure to replace it all the way so it can work properly.

My dryer runs but no heat.maytag neptune gas dryer.


Hi there,

Well if your dryer tumbles, but there is no heat then you may please check out the following -
1. First of all you can check out for proper air flow - Check the vent for proper air flow by placing your hand over the exterior vent while the dryer is running. You should feel a strong flow of air. If not then check the lint trap. It is located either on top of the dryer or possibly just inside the door. Remove any lint that has built up in the lint trap. Cleaning the lint trap should be done regularly, even as often as after every load. Do not operate the dryer without a lint trap in place.
2. Secondly you can check out the Ignitor - gas dryer blows air through a burner assembly to heat the air. The burner assembly consists essentially of a gas valve, ignitor and a flame sensor. If any part of the burner assembly malfunctions, the result will be low or no heat and slow drying of the clothes. Post comments for further help or information.....
Good Luck!!
Thanks for using FixYa!!

I have a Maytag Dryer that stopped in the middle of a cycle and there is no lent at all and the dryer will not come back on..


Possibly a blown thermal fuse. May have to call repair man. Pull bottom panel and ohm our thermal fuse, just behind blower, lint trap assy. Also, check for clogged vent. This sometimes causes the thermal fuse to blow.

The dryer is heating but clothes aren't drying. There isn't much lint on the filter and the inside door and lint area is damp with wet lint spread around that area. It is a MDE5500AY model. Serial...


This just happened to us a couple of weeks ago, and we called a repair man. I might be able to save you $45 for a service call. In our dryer, the lint can fall out of the lint screen and clog up in the back of the dryer. Remove the back of the dryer (you might have to unscrew the lint screen too) and the ductwork inside the back (it's quite easy, I've now done it since my daughter dropped my sunglasses down the lint screen hole) just keep an eye on your screws. Remove the trapped lint, and vaccum out the hose, making sure there's no kinks in the hose as it runs to your house exhaust. Put the dryer back together and see if it works. If not, you've got a fan problem and will need a repairman. But apparently this is the most common dryer problem and will take about 20 minutes of your time to straighten out.

Toothbrush used to clean lint out of the screen area dropped


Does it matter if its there?

If you dropped it in without opening up anything you should be able to get it out (With a hassle)

How to remove lint tray receiver: maytag dryer model#pye2300ayw


Unplug first with a straight blade screwdriver, pry up on the top of the dryer where the front wall of the dryer and the top meet. there are 2 screws 1 on each side inside the dryer where the sides and front meet, remove them and unhook the wires from the door switch. the whole front will now pull out and up, now open the door remove the 2 screws at the bottom of the door opening and the whole lint tray will pull out. sounds like a lot but only takes about 5 minutes.
