If you have kids and they over fill the dryer it strains all systems including the heater because it cannot get rid of excess heat. Solution*** Possibly needs a new belt

    It sounds like your drive belt has broken or come off the motor pulley. Time to service the dryer and replace the belt, possibley rollers and felt slide also. A professional can do this for you or you can buy the kit at a local appliance parts store or online if your a mechanically competent to do so.

SOURCE: Kemore Dryer will not start

I would check the voltage and the dryer where cord attaches to dry to make sure you havt 220volts... check you door switch... also you have a thermofuse in back .. check for burn off wires or lose wires.. make sure dryer is unplugged... the thermal fuse with be white plastic oval in shape on the blower venting with 2 wires.. here is a pic if it uploads

SOURCE: Maytag Electric Dryer Stopped Working

Check spring tab behind door switch-if it's bent/out of adjustment, circuit will act like door is always open.

To confirm this, open door, set dryer to active setting, and hold in door switch; if it comes on, then it's either the spring tab, or the switch is malfunctioning

a bearing in the back for your drum sounds like what you describe. It needs to be taken apart and the bearing lubricated with high temp grease

SOURCE: Dryer not heating as it should. Gets warm, but takes several cycles to dry clothes

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

Maytag model #: med5770tq0 won't dry. Please help


Dear Emily.
Several problems.
First, did this dryer ever work properly hooked up as it is?
I mean hooked to the roof event?
If it used to work just fine, then I suspect the vent to the roof is clogged with lint and is not allowing the heat to escape.
If it never did work right,(for example: it is new to us) then I'd venture dryers are not supposed to vent their hot air that far away, they do not have a strong enough blower to push that air that distance.
Then, you might try to find another place to vent the hot air, with a total distance of only 10 feet from the dryer, even if you only vented it while you were actually drying clothers.
I doubt if the last item is for you, but I have sometimes seen where the washing machine did not spin all the water out of the clothes, and then the dryer needed all day to get the clothes dry.
Be blessed.

Check drive belts. If too loose or too worn it will not spin at proper speed.

Spinning fast and furious, just doesn't wring clothes dry


It sounds like you need a water pump!
See if it's pumping water next time you do load by looking at the discharge hose going to the drainage pipe and get back to me!
