Maytag dryer is taking forever to dry clothes, can even smell bad while running? how do i clean it besides the lint catcher?

Make sure the vent is not clogged. Its in the bottom of back side. Typically vented outside. Also, verify your heater elements are working by running dryer with door open to check for heat

The dryer runs fine but the gas comes on for about 1 minute then shuts off. It may cycle once or twice then stops. The vent is clear and I cleaned the filter assembly and the fan housing.

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

No heat when dryer running - Maytag mdg6000

Check for a blown thermal fuse or a faulty heating element. These components can be tested for continuity using a multimeter. A lack of continuity indicates a bad component. The thermal fuse is about one inch long and is located in the rear of the dryer and is usually attached to the exhaust duct. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Dryer takes forever to dry clothes

This is a classic example of a clogged vent tube. Everyone cleans the lint trap, but seldom checks the tube that connects the dryer's output to the outdoors.

The tube should be removed and replaced if it is the flexible plastic type. The flexible metal tube can be used if you can clean it easily enough. The best tube to use is the sheep metal type. It can be easily cleaned and is very durable. Be sure to pay particular attention to turns or right angles of the tube - nearly always at the rear of the dryer - before it is directed away. Make sure the entire length is clear including the cap at the outside end - be it in the wall or roof.

Of course, if the heat isn't as hot as it used to be, there could be another heat source (gas or electric - or even both) related issue too. I'm betting that the vent has never been inspected.

Good luck!

Maytag atlantis gas dryer, will start, heat up but then no heat

Try running it with the vent disconnected and feel the air coming out of the dryer. It should have good flow. If it dries good, your pipe may be clogged.
