Inside of my maytag atlantis electric dryer...top layer is erodin

Hi, my Maytag Atlantis electric dryer 4years old , inside the tub the top layer is eroding in spots. What is that material underneath and is it toxic...is it ok for me to dry my clothes and towels? I do not want to expose my family to some toxic material that is not suppose to be exposed. I have about 5 small, mabe 2 inch by 3/4 inch areas that are eroded, and the next layer is now exposed on the inside tub that turns the clothes to dry. Please advise...do I need a new dryer ? Thank you, Barbara barbdwoods@aol.com Jan.22, 2009

I WOULD NOT WORRY ABOUT THE FINISH COMING OF EXPOSING ANYTHING TOXIC. WHAT COULD HAPPEN IS THAT WITH TIME, THE DRUM MAY RUST AND TRANSFER IT ONTO THE CLOTHES. DEPENDING ON ITS CONDITION, IT SEEMS NEW ENOUGH TO WARRANT INSTALLING A NEW DRUM. I DONT KNOW IF A COATING OF PORCALINE SPRAY PAINT WOULD STAND UP TO THE CONDITIONS IN THE DRYER BUT IT MAY BE WORTH A SHOT AS I DONT KNOW OFF HAND WHAT A DRUM SELLS FOR.

Maytag Atlantis MDE7400AYW timer has been replaced but the dryer won't stop drying on it's own. What is the reason? I have the same problem... the timer on mine doesn't seem to work. Any ideas?


The wire connections to the timer may have not been made correctly when it was replaced bypassing the OFF contact in the control circuit.  There should be a wiring diagram inside the front or back panel that you can check.

sounds like you have a restricted vent . check not only the hose but also the house venting. usually clogged at the screen or flapper outside. another ppular place for a buildup is the inlet under the lint screen. without proper airflow lint collects on element. take care of the quickly as it could lead to a fire.
