The drying fan is most likely clogged.
Take of the topp, then you will se the drying fan. Along with the heating system. There are several screws you have to undo on the heating canal. Then you should be able to clean the whole thing.
Sometimes the fan is broken, and need replacing.
This is not recomended if you dont know what you are doing!
Do a mistake with the overheating guards, heater position, wireing ect, and you could set the machine on fire the next time you use the dryer
Does it dry the clothes as fast as always? Or is it taking longer to dry them? That noise could be the blower wheel.
If the noise is more of a scrubbing sound that would be your glides worn thin and rubbing the mount
Something can also be in the blower causing the noise.
Take the door off first and since the door is reversable remove those 2 screws on the other side. Then the front pops off revealing the clips that hold down the top. Then you can get the glide mount/shroud off there and remove the tub. You probably figured out you cannot access the innards from the rear of the dryer. http://www.fixya.com/support/r6555743-help_maytag_slopefront_dryer_died
Could be stat or heater .Remove the top cover, and you will see the heater manifold on the right side of washer drum.
The element and stat/s are located on the top of the manifold box.
You willneed a meter to test with, also check for broken wires.
Hi, I think the problem you have is with the cold water inlet valve? When your machine dries it uses a small amount of water at high pressure through a restricter fitted in the water inlet valve. These break down letting in to much water which cannot evaporate quick enough for it to pump out causing the washing to become wetter than after the wash/spin cycle. The only way of solving this is to replace th tree way water inlet valve. But make sure that the pump is working ok first and that there is nothing in the sump hose trap which is located underneath the washing machine out the bottom of the tub.
If your dryer won't heat up, it's possible that it is not being supplied with the proper voltage. Here are three ways to make sure power is getting to your dryer: First, make sure your dryer is plugged in. Next, check the circuit breaker panel to make sure all the circuit breakers are in the correct positions. Finally, check to make sure no fuses in your fuse panel are blown. Any of these could explain why power is not getting to your dryer.
This is more a workaround than a solution. When you choose the washing programme (say "D") and push the on/off button, two lights will flash, the "door locked" and the "drying" one. Now turn the "drying programme" button until the "drying" light stops flashing (in my case, this is true when I set the drying programme to 40°C). Then start the washing mashine.
Seems like the function of the drying programme button has shifted against the settings written on the button...don't ask me why! Of course, no guarantee but works for me. Please let me know if it does for you.
Have suffered the same problem. Suggest you remove back (after turning off electrical supply) and look at the water outlet pipe - you may have a sock or two in this - remember to reattach outlet and secure in position.
