Check the air flow on the outside at the vent. If it's a long way to that point then a leaf blower attached to the inside should clear any blockage.

    I use an oven temp check gauge from wal-mart. I put the gauge right at the dryer discharge with the hose disconnected. It should stay between 125 - 150 and I watch the flame at the same time.

    Does the flame come on, How long does the flame stay on, etc.

    The low limit thermo disk keeps it between 125-150 and the high limit acts like a fuse. When it cuts off it will not come back on.

    The low limit is on the air discharge and the high limit is next to the heat source.

    Ok, this must be in the gas valve. The solenoids that open the gas valve can be checked with an OHM meter to see if there is a break inside the coils.

I have a Maytag Dependable Care Heavy Duty dryer and it makes an awful noise when it runs, also it isn't heating what should I do?

the knocking is either a belt that is going or one of the wheels is broken(they ride on three or four wheels). and those fixes are fairly inexpensive. but if it is also not heating, that can be inexpensive or not. maybe a new one, or fairly new via craigslist. how old is your dryer. over 10-12 years, maybe replace this one

Maytag dryer barely gets warm

Is your vent stopped up? Or your lint screen? Usually an element will be all out, not just a little.

Maytag dryer not heating up thus not drying clothes

This is usually a simple heating coil malfunction. The coil may have breaks in it causing it not to work. It could also have something to do with 1 of several heating sensors that may be broken, telling the dryer's heating coil that the dryer is too hot, in effect turning off the heating coil. If your dryer has a round lint filter in the rear of the drum, it was 1 of 2 models of Dependable care dryers produced in the 1970's. If this is the case, i supose it would be up to you whether you want to try and get it repaired or not. If you have one of the more recent models,,, the lint filter is directly behind the door, at the front of the drum. and in this case it would probably be a good idea to get it looked at it as Maytag is a relatively dependable brand.
