Question about Maytag MDE2706 Electric Dryer
I bought a dryer from someone recently and when I hooked it up it will run for about 4 min and then shut off for about 6 min and then start up again for 4 and so on. The dryer is getting too hot and shutting itself off. There is nothing wrong with the dryer it's the vent hose that leads to the outside of the house. When the hose is on is when it gets too hot and shuts off but if you take the hose off it will run its full cycle. I have made sure that the hose is free of lint and the vent is clean also. From the dryer to the outside is only about 3 feet so I can look in the hose and see there is nothing blocking it and I can reach my hand from the laundry room out the vent to the outside so I know that is clean. I held the flaps wide open on the outside of the house and it still shut off after about 4 min. I don't know if I need to make the vent on the outside of the house bigger to allow more air out but the air is getting backed up somehow, any ideas?
How long is your vent hose and how long when heated it may be kinking when heated
