Question about Maytag Dryers
Dryer is taking a very long time to dry laundry.5 hours to dry towels.Is it worth fixing?Dryer is about 18 years old.Looks new,is it worth fixing?
A lot of times this is due to the lint build up in venting.If its clogged it will take forever to dry the clothes. it also can clog on the vent where it comes either out of the roof or side of the house depending on where its vented Check to make sure its clean of lint.

most of the time your complaint is the home owners house venting.run a load with the venting detached[it wont hurt a thing] if ok then must clean venting till dried as well as with out venting.if still long dry times first must make sure air ways in dryer are clean[should have good air flow at back if hand held there] and may need to remove front to clean lint filter area.and inspect blower ,making sure mounted to shaft and not worn in the center[blower key way, inside the hole where motor shaft goes thru blower]you dryer only has one element so if you have heat its heating.if you did all above and have problem still can be electronic[thermostats,timers etc........but i have fixed 1000s of dryers and their having problems are rarer.i hope that helps God bless ,tom

SOURCE: not dry laundry
No I understand that .. Is your dryer 220V electrical source? If so it sounds like you have an electrical problem with the voltage supply to the dryer itself. I for some reason the dryer is only getting 110V that will allow the drum and dryer to function but the heating element will not .. You may need to talk to an electrician if you are capable of doing that yourself

Not too familliar with the gas temp either, but you should definitely take your lint filter out and clean it with soap and water. If you use dryer sheets, they can leave a clear film on your filter and it can be just as bad as a filter full of lint. Try this out, if it works, clean your filter periodically with soap and water to remove the chemical buildup.
