Check that the vent pipe is not totally or partially restricted as it discharges from the house

Is this a gas or electric dryer?

Please reply with specific model number and any further questions.

The air is cold and not getting hot at all. It sounds like something is rattling in the back of the machine.

Dryer not hot


Tht means that the element is not heating on.

You need to call a technician to test the element, the thermic sensor, and the control assembly.

The most likely is a defective heating element, that must be replaced.

Maytag gas dryer is fickle!


First thing is to check that the vent tubing both inside the back of the dryer [ the exhaust pipe that is attached inside the dryer ] and the tubing that vents it outside the house are not plugged by lint or ? if it is all clear you have an electrical component problem such as a sensor or valve.Unfortunately you will need someone qualified to diagnose and fix this type of problem.Good wishes for you.Stephen
