SOURCE: maytag performa model#pyg2300aww takes four cycles to dry

how long is dryer vent run ? does it go up or out to the side ? Sounds like the dryer vent is clogged. A long run on your vent will also cause this problem with a small amount of lint. Try cleaning out your lint screen on the dryer vent they can get pretty caked up with lint. If you have a long dryer vent run post back the length and direction and I will get you the maximum length for your specific run. You may need a booster fan if it is excessively long or straight up as through the roof.

SOURCE: Doesn't Dry Thoroughly

if you have not already you need to clean out your vent hose. if you have a bunch of lint build up in the hose or in the blower wheel of the dryer it won't move air through the dryer that needed to dry.

SOURCE: TAKES 2 TO 3 CYCLES TO DRY. gETS BARELY WARM

If your dryer is still heating, but you are experiencing longer dry times and poor drying efficiency, the following link can give you some things to check before you assume there is a malfunction with your dryer:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3578821-dryer_takes_too_long_to_dry

The number one cause of dryer heat related problems is poor exhaust ventilation. If not vented properly, a dryer will not dry efficiently, will actually take longer than required to dry, and will cause the heating circuits to overheat to the point of failure. The dryer will actually seem hotter than usual in many cases as the heating circuits begin to overheat. This is also the source of many fire hazards if not resolved. Read through the link provided and review some of the potential causes.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information is helpful.

NOTE: If you thoroughly check everything and still have problems let me know. The problem could be related to a thermostat failure.

LG Dryer takes too long to dry clothes


Sure the outside vent is not clogged up? If so it will overheat and turn it self off and do a poor job of drying the clothes.

Also check and make sure that all of the heating elements are working properly.

I have a whirlpool wed5200vq1 dryer and the clothes are no longer being dryed. The dryer is less than one year old. What would cause the problem and how do I fix it?


Almost certainly a faulty heater element or a faulty overheat sensor that has tripped. HOWEVER!!
This machine is under a year old! It's still under warranty. If you mess with it you invalidate the warranty.

There should be a warranty helpline number inside the door housing on the chassis.

My dryer will heat up, but it is not drying the clothes during the cycle. It takes 2 or 2.5 cycles to dry the load


if you have the top model lint filter take it out put your hand in and see if you have good air sucken,if not you have a clogg somewhere in the dryer hose or wall vent,most of the time it is the wall vent, if the hot wet air can't get out the cloths will take forever to dry-mike

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
