Question about Maytag Neptune MDE5500AY Electric Dryer
IT ONLY HEATS FOR 2 MINUTES AND STOPS HEATING
Check that the dryer duct at the back where it connects the dryer to the wall has not collapsed to restrict air movement to the house vent duct.
Check that the vent duct all the way to the outside of the house is not fully or partially restricted in any way.
Make sure the lint screen is clean.
Make sure there is no buildup of lint inside the dryer where the heat enter the drum.
You should be able to walk outside with the dryer running, and feel a blast of air exiting the dryer vent. If not, find the restriction.
A dryer warming up, and then shutting down is normally a sign of a restricted vent duct at some point in the system. Particularly if nothing is done, and the dryer heats up momentarily when the cycle is tried again.
