This is most likely an element problem. it is best that a tech replace it but if you feel comfortable take it out and to your local repair shop. match it up and reinstall it.


good luck

My maytag neptune isnt drying the clothes after they have been in for an hour?? my husband and i have always taken good care of the set, its like 4 or 5 years old. does a part need to be replaced an if so...


Check the inside vent duct on the machine and also the external duct all the way to the outside wall. I'm sure you will find lint buildup that is hampering the dry cycle.

Hello my dryer doesnt work properly it runs


The valve resistance is 1995 ohms and the ignitor is 185.
Inspect the dryer venting from the rear of the dryer to the outside vent hood of the home.
If there's a restriction in the vent--the clothing in the dryer takes longer to dry.
When the dryer is functioning normally---the time required to dry laundry is determined by the *Sensor* located on the drum side of the lint filter housing and by the main control board.
When laundry is near dry--any Time Remaining on the control panel that is *not* needed will be eliminated---except for the last 6 minutes.
The final 6 minutes of any automatic cycle is for cooling down the laundry before the dryer ends the cycle.
If a dryer *counts down* to the last 6 minutes but the laundry is still not dry--the computer will allow the dryer to run until the laundry has dried or defaults (not drying within the additional time allowed).
Dryer vents that are longer than 8 feet with more than (2) 90 degree turns--can affect drying performance.
Setting the DRY LEVEL selector to *Very Dry* will solve most dryability issues. In homes with abnormally long vents--even the longer run time in the *Very Dry* setting is usually not sufficient to dry laundry loads.
Reducing the length of the vent or starting a second cycle becomes necessary to fully dry the clothing.
If a second cycle was started---only the amount of time that is needed to dry laundry will be used before dropping to 6 minutes and then the cycle will end with dry laundry.
*****************************************

LG gas dryers are more sensitive to venting length and air flow resistance. The gas burner can cause a rapid increase in temperature compared to an electric burner.
Rapid temperature rise in a gas dryer leads to premature burner shutdown (longer time required to dry laundry).
The gradual temperature increase of an electric element is more "forgiving" in homes where the dryer venting is less than ideal.
*******************************************

Problem:
The dryer has an auto dry feature which never fully dries the clothes so we wind up manually setting the dry time to an hour
Solution:
LG gas dryers are VERY temperamental in long vent set-ups. If fabric softener sheets are used in the dryer--clean the two stainless steel strips of metal on the lint filter housing with a SCOTCHBRITE PAD--scrub back & forth several times to remove the waxy residue from the fabric softener sheets. Most,if not all manufacturers do *not* recommend using sheets in dryers that have a moisture sensor (electrodes).
However--using a SCOTCHBRITE pad keeps the wax off those sensors which can be seen if looking *into* the dryer drum and at the lint filter housing.
If only *liquid* fabric softener is used in the washer--clean the dryer sensors once a month. Liquid softener also contains wax which can slowly accumulate on the dryer sensors from the laundry washed in the washer.

Dryer Gets Too Hot!


Could be the heat switch on the motor or a grounded heat element

Dryer cuts off before clothes are dry.


Might be the thermal protector in the motor that is shutting down the dryer, if motor overheats this is what will happen. Make sure there is no lint build up around the motor, if not the motor is bad. does the dryer start right away after shutting off or do you have to wait? If you have to wait the motor is bad.

Taking to long to dry


This could be two problems. First problem, you must have good ventilation. Blow out the dryer vent with a leaf blower or some other type of fast moving air. Also be sure that the vent on the outside isnt blocked by little woodland creatures trying to find a nice warm home. Also be sure that the vent isnt kinked or blocked between the dryer and the wall. If that doesnt work, you may have only 1 of the 2 elements actually heating behing the drum. This would entitle removing the front and drum to check. Let me know if you need further help.
