Question about Maytag Dryers
We checked and cleaned out the lint trap and the hose on the back of the dryer. We then checked the hose out to the outside vent. The dryer is letting out a little bit of air but when you turn it on and let it run for a minute, open the door, it lets out a BUNCH of steam. The air is not getting out to the vent on the back of the unit. The outside of the dryer is also hot to the touch. It is a Maytag dryer - model # MDET236AYW - Serial number is 11187451JT. Can someone please help me with this? Thank you.
Unplug the dryer.
Raise the top lid.
Remove the front panel.
Inspect the blower wheel attached to the motor.
It is probably turning on the shaft.
If so, replace the blower wheel.
If not, dig the lint out of the vent between the wheel and the rear of the dryer.
