    I have had it 1 month but this is the first time I've connected it. The house is almost built. The door seems to be latching and the dryer light goes off when I close it.

Maytag Centennial Dryer (MEDC400VW) not drying properly


First of all, please make sure the vent is clear all the way through. Next the vent must be straight as possible. Next it can not be to long. People think that because they feel the air outside the vent is clear, not always true. The vent can be partially clogged. So make sure. Next, if the vent hose has sags or bows and even tight turns. It can accumulate the moisture in it from the drying proceed. If water has collected in the vent hose the clothes will not dry properly. If the vent is to long it can not dry properly either, the blower on the dryer can only move air so far. So the shorter the better. If all of these requirements are meet. Then, I would have to start checking the thermostats. I hope I have helped you. Please respond if you need further assistance.

LONG DRYING TIME


Most likely the vent is plugged - check the vent hose (usually start at the outside location & work back to dryer). If hose is not clogged, unplug dryer, remove vent hose from back of dryer and check there.

The first thing to try is to disconnect the vent hose, and run a drying cycle. If warm air comes out of the exhaust vent, the hose or the vent jack is blocked. If it does'nt warm the air, we need to find out why. Please post back with the result of this test, and we'll go from there.

Gas lights up for about 5 minutes and then burns out. Try to turn on dryer again, but flame won't light. I let dryer sit for aout 30 minutes and turn on again - flame starts up, but will only last...


If the flame is shutting of before it reaches the operating temperatures the likely failure is a restricted venting system. There is a high limit thermostat that will cause the flame to shut off if there is a lack of airflow due to a restriction in the vent system. Remove the lint filter screen and clean in with soap and water. The filter may appear clean but it could have a clear film of fabric softener residue covering it causing a restriction in the air flow too. After cleaning the filter reinstall it before running the next test.

For testing purposes only, disconnect the dryer vent hose from the back of the dryer and put a normal load of clothes in the dryer and start the dryer. If the clothes dry in the normal amount of time that would confirm a restriction in the vent hose or the venting system. NOTE: Do not leave the vent hose disconnected after running the test. Reconnect the vent hose.

You will likely find the clothes drying in the normal amount of time indicating a restriction in the venting.

Our model medt5870tw0 maytag dryer does not dry properly


First , remove the vent hose from the dryer to see if good air flow is coming out the dryer vent . If not , could have a bad blower wheel . If so , then check the vent hose AND vent to outside to see if blocked . A dryer will either heat or not heat . Since your dryer heats , try drying a load without the vent hose connected to the dryer and see if it heats fine (telling you , a vent problem is apparent . Sometimes a dryer is pushed too far back , kinking the vent hose also .

New Maytag gas dryer with long dry times


Double check that vent by finding where it exits your house. It should be blowing pretty hard, like a blow dryer. Guarantee you its a vent issue. Also check that when u push the dryer back against the wall your not crushing the vent. If you have a vent issue. Try sticking a leaf blower in the end that the dryer connects to. Quick fix unless you have a really long vent system. Hope that helps. Dave, www.washermd.com

1. VentingMake sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct, is not clogged.

Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance repairman perform this task.

2. Thermostat
There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance. Replace the defective thermostat.

My fisher paykel dryer does not dry properly. I have to run 2 cylces to make the clothes dry


If you have to run the dryer 2 to 3 times as long to dry the clothes then you just need to make sure the vent hose behind the dryer isn't kinked up and the vent is open all the way out side ,,, that will fix it for you.
