How can I access the heating element on my Maytag dryer model MDET446AYW.


Go to www.repairclinic.com and enter MDET446AYW. You will be presented with a list of common replacement parts and may be able to view a generic Maytag video showing disassembly and parts identification.

My Maytag Quite Plus clothes dryer gets warm but not as hot as it use to. It seems to take a very long time to dry clothes. Vent is clear. The moisture gage seems to flicker lately.


most dryers have two heating elemts and when one goes out this increases the drying time and could cause a elec. short and trip a braker can be replaced.. There is also a saftey switch that goes bad and will not let the heating elemt work properly ?

Brand new Maytag Centennial electric dryer does not dry clothes!


It may have shipping damage, such as a loose or broken connection or heating element.

But if it's brand new, it's under warranty, and they will fix it free.

You can find your nearest Maytag-authorized servicer here.

Where is the dry sensor located in the tub on a Maytag mdet446ayw elec. dryer?


1.-Take  the front bottom cover off. In the lower left corner in the back of the dryer there is  the element.
 2.-Removed the two screws that held it in place.  The  wires is long enough to reach the front of the dryer with the element for easy of switching.    3.-pulled the element out to the front of the dryer and switched wires.
 4.-Slid new element in place which looks trickey but it sits right were you need it too.
 5.- put cover back on ran a cycle with no cloths to burn off the element and as good as new. 

Am sending you a diagram also w/ prices

Maytag LDG 712 shuts off before clothes are dry.


First, The most common part would be the over limit safety, it will be mounted to the element housing. Second, there is a thermal fuse usually a small disk with a little fuse inside. You can find these (with your model no.) at www.Repairclinic.com .Good luck.

I have a Maytag Atlantis Gas Dryer that will turn on, rotate, but will not get hot and dry the clothes. A load of clothes in the afternoon, didn’t dry, tried again but didn’t dry – went to bed after putting on auto dry - next morning the dryer was still rotating and didn’t turn off. No hot air – only cold air.
