How to remove the front panel of a maytag epic z dryer


If your unit is not drying well or slow dry it is being caused by poor external venting rather than internally. first make sure you are not crushing the vent hose behind unit then next clean venting in wall and make sure outside flaps are opening and closing properly before opening up dryer. Easy way to tell if it the machine or venting is to take vent hose off and connect a pair of sheer pantyhose to exhaust port on back of dryer and run a few loads if all works well your issue is in the wall not the machine

Maytag dryer model #PYE2200AYW how to remove lint compartment once I removed the screws in the front


Instructions
Things You'll Need:

Nylon scrub brush Liquid detergent Vacuum

1.Remove the lint screen, which usually is located in the front of a Maytag dryer. Gently pull it up and out, and remove the lint with your fingers.
2. Use hot water and wet both sides of the lint screen. Use a nylon scrubbing brush and a little bit of liquid dish soap or laundry detergent to scrub the screen clean of lint and fabric softener buildup. Rinse both sides thoroughly with hot water. Towel dry and replace the lint screen when dry. Maytag states that owners should do this every six months.
3.Clean the exhaust every two years, as recommended by Maytag. Whoever installed your dryer had to install the exhaust vent. Unplug your dyer and unscrew the vent from the back of the dryer. Use a vacuum attachment or your hands to remove any clogged lint and replace. You may need to do the same thing to the other end that is attached to the wall.
4.Clean the dryer cabinet. According to Maytag, a professional should remove lint from the dryer cabinet every two years. This may be a good time to have him clean out the vents as well, rather than doing it yourself, if preferred.
5.Clean your lint screen on a regular basis. Maytag states that you should clean the lint screen with your fingers before using the dryer each time. Be sure to replace it all the way so it can work properly.

Dryer takes long time to dry. usually 2 or 3 cycle. Filycter is cleaned after every cycle. Vent hose is not blocked


This complaint usually is attributed to clogged exhaust venting somewhere. As a process of elimination, remove the exhaust venting from behind the dryer and run your loads. If the dryer dries clothes properly, then your issue is definitely with the exhaust venting (e.g.: inside wall, attic, etc.). If possible, check the entire path of exhaust venting or contact a vent cleaning company.

I have a kenmore HE2 dryer and matching washer. It is 3 years old. It works and eventually clothes do dry. It does heat up. But it doesn't heat up as hot as it used to and it takes twice as long to dry...


Make sure you check your exhaust line and where the air blows to the outside. If your exhaust vent or hose is bent or restricted it will take a very long time to dry the clothes. Sometimes the vent flap on the outside exhaust is stuck shut. Clear dryer exhaust venting is critical for proper operation. Several companies offer a vent cleaning service where they completely clean out the exhaust lines.

Clothes go in wet and clean, come out smelling moldy


Is it possible your vent hose or outside vent is clogged? What about your filder inside, you clean every oad? Is there something between your filter and the exhaust clogging the machine, like a sock?

I have found all kinds of stuff in the exhaust that somehow gets past the filter. You wull probably have to remove the top and/or front to check this out. Tru a vacum cleaner with a crevis tool before you tear it apart.

Let me know if this works for you

I want to know how to remove the lint trap (not just the screen but the entire assembly) from a Maytag Performa PYET344AZW front loading electric dryer. The lint screen will not even properly slide back...


Besides drying clothes, dryers also remove lint. This fine, fuzzy material can cause trouble because it blocks dryer lint traps, clogs vents, and fills blowers. Lint can also gather around and in the tracks of the drum rollers, or in and under the pulleys and the drive belt. The result is poor clothes drying or -- sometimes -- no drying. To avoid lint problems, clean out the dryer's lint trap system every time you use the dryer.
To clean the lint screen, remove it from the unit. The screen may be located near or under the door sill, or in the top of the dryer near the control panel. It can usually be removed by pulling it up and out of its housing. Remove the accumulated lint to clear the screen; then replace the screen.
The exhaust vent also collects lint. Vent maintenance involves cleaning the lint from a screen in the dryer's vent exhaust collar and/or at the end of the exhaust vent where it sticks out through a basement window or through an exterior wall. To clean the screen, remove the clamp that holds the vent to the collar, or back out the screws that hold the vent to the collar, or pull the vent straight off an extended collar. Clean the screen thoroughly and replace it in the vent assembly.
To clean the vent itself, use a vent-cleaning brush (available at hardware stores) to pull out any lint deposits. Also check the vent run to make sure that the vent piping or tubing isn't loose at the joints, or -- in the case of flexible plastic venting -- isn't sagging between hanging brackets. Breaks or sags cause undue strain on the dryer's blower system, and can cause drying problems. If the vent pipe or tubing has become clogged with lint, remove the lint by pushing a garden hose or a drain-and-trap auger through the vent to a convenient joint. Disassemble the joint to remove the debris. With this procedure, it isn't necessary to disassemble the entire vent to find the blockage.You can head off problems before they become too serious by providing routine maintenance for your dryer's door gasket, thermostat, timer, and other frequently used parts. Let's discuss how to service these important components in the next section.

Cleaning the vent


Hello,

One trick is to put a Pyrex bowl of water and let that boil for a few minutes or so. This gives the water vapors a chance to collect and exhaust dirt and dust from the vent passage way.
