How do you dry clothes in this machine please

A fairly common problem! The official instructions are

Before using your dryer, wipe the dryer drum with a damp cloth to
remove dust from storing and shipping.
1. Load clothes loosely into the dryer and close the door. Do not
pack the dryer. Allow space for clothes to tumble freely.
2. Turn the Cycle Control knob to the recommended cycle for the type of load being dried. Use the Energy Preferred Automatic Setting (,) to dry most heavyweight and medium weight loads. See "Drying, Cycle, and Temperature Tips."
3. Select a temperature setting on models with a Temp/Fabric selector. The cycle descriptions include temperature setting suggestions.
4. Push the START button.

Stopping and Restarting
You can stop your dryer any time during a cycle.
To stop your dryer
Open the dryer door or turn the Cycle Control knob to OFE
NOTE: The Cycle Control knob should point to an Off area when
the dryer is not in use.
To restart your dryer
1. Close the door.
2. Select a new cycle and temperature (if desired).
3. Press START

Is there any kind of recall on a Maytay front loading washer, model #MAH6500AWW? I am having problems with mildew in the rubber part and terrible smelling water in the bottom.

The cleaning process for your Maytag Neptune front-loading washer, for example, requires some time and patience. Over time, your washing machine will need to be cleaned. It can develop offensive odors through multiple wash cycles. This makes the washing machine less effective at cleaning the clothes you put into it. Maytag offers some sound advice for cleaning your front-loading washing machine.
  • Pour 2/3 cup of liquid chlorine bleach into the bleach compartment of the dispenser drawer of your Maytag Neptune front-loading washer.

  • 2

    Run your Maytag Neptune front-loading washer on the "Clean Washer" setting. Press "Start" to start the cycle.

  • 3

    Leave the door open once the cycle is complete to allow the inside of your Maytag Neptune front-loading washer to ventilate and air dry.

  • 4

    Look closely at the gray seal of the Maytag Neptune front-loading washer's door opening. This seal can have a buildup of debris or detergent residue.

  • 5

    Spray the seal with an all-purpose appliance cleaner and scrub away any debris or residue with a cloth or scrubbing pad. Dry with a clean cloth.

  • 6

    Remove the soap dispenser drawer. Press the release lever and lift it out to clean.

  • 7

    Take out the inserts and rinse them and the drawer thoroughly.

  • 8

    Wash with a mild soap and cloth to remove any residue. Dry thoroughly before replacing.

  • ALWAYS LEAVE THE DOOR OPEN WHEN NOT IN USE! This prevents the mold and mildew from forming once you get it cleaned.

    My Whirlpool Dryer (model no. LGR4634EQO) is no longer heating, or getting hot at all. How can I troubleshoot it??


    suggestions about things they can do to troubleshoot commonproblems.

      • 1 Open the dryer door and remove the lint screen ifthe clothes are not dry after a drying cycle completes. Remove the lint fromthe lint screen and replace the screen. The dryer ought to dry more efficientlyafter the lint screen is cleaned.
      • 2 Open your home's breaker box if the dryer is notturning on or no indicator lights are visible on the front panel. If theswitches for the dryer in the breaker box are flipped to "Off," flipthe switches over to the "On" position.
      • 3 Remove some of the clothing in the dryer or drysmaller loads if you notice that the clothing is wrinkled when you finishdrying a load. Larger loads cause the clothing to wrap around one another whendrying, increasing the likelihood of wrinkles.
      • 4
    Pull the dryer unit away from the wall and checkon the position and arrangement of the exhaust vent. An exhaust vent that ispinched between the wall and the appliance or an exhaust vent that is kinkedcan't allow air to flow through it properly, making it difficult for theappliance to dry properly.
      • 5
    Make sure the door is closed if the dryerdoes notrun. Also check to make sure that you hold in the "Start" button forat least a second. Pressing the button for less than a second may not give thethe dryer enough time to recognize the button has been pressed and that itshould start.

    Thanks for using fixya.

    Dryer drum is turning, but not drying the clothes. When I open the door, there is heat. Lint has been cleaned out

    Check where the dryer vent comes out and make sure that there is a good amount of air coming out. If the fan is blowing, the drum is turning, and there is heat, the likely thing is that the dryer vent is partially blocked. Check the pipe leading out. Bird's nests are not uncommon. The only other thing I can think of is that the door catch is wearing out and the door is popping open, shutting the dryer off mid-cycle. Some dryers will continue to run the timer if the cycle is interrupted and it will appear that the dryer ran its full cycle, but in reality it shut off soon after it started.

    Washing machine won't spin dry . Its a whirlpool 2 speed 7 cycle heavy duty model

    If this is a top load clothes washer, almost all units will not spin if the door is open during the cycle time when it should be spinning. If the door is closed, check if the door safety interlock is broken (on most washers, you will see a pin on the door pressing into a little depression)

    If these things check out, you probably have a failed transmission deep inside the clothes washer. Fixing that is non-trivial.

    Dryer stopped working mid-cycle.

    I presume she pushed the start button again. Can you hear the motor running? If so, it's a broken belt. The door switch can fail anytime. If the dryer started ok later, the motor was overheated. Lighter loads will avoid a lot of problems, and the dryer will probably work better.

    Intermittant trouble with code d 11

    Answer Duet HT®
    duet_f_dl_actualsize.gif Duet SportTM
    This error code indicates that the door is not locking.
    Is the washer door firmly shut?
    The door must be completely closed for the washer to operate. The door may look as if it's closed, but it may not be latched. Open the door and firmly close it.
    Were you washing a large load?
    Before you close the washer door, check for laundry items sticking out beyond the door opening. Leave enough space in the washer to allow the clothes to freely tumble. Reduce your load size if needed.
    fl_doorseal.jpg To remove the error display, press Pause/Cancel twice.

    If Pause/Cancel does not work:
    1. Unplug the washer or disconnect the power for one minute.
    2. Plug in the washer or reconnect the power.
    3. Re-select the cycle and press Start.
    NOTE: If the error remains on the display, and all of the other conditions above have been checked, call for service.
