    Check inside the dryer as it seems to exhaust tube may have come lose inside the dryer before it reaches the flex hose used for venting.

I would simply look at the internal exhaust tubing inside the dryer and verify it has not come loose. Its very simple to access and look where it attaches first to the flex hose.

SOURCE: Dryer lint screen doesn't seal well and clogging vent

You can buy felt tape from a variety of sources. Here's one:http://www.findtape.com/shop/product.aspx?id=412&bc=F&setscreen=1&width=1436&height=0

I'm sure Amazon sells it as well as most Lowes and Home depot type warehouse centers.

I am not 100% sure, but I think that the model that maytag had with that dryer. When I was working for my local dealer I had to change several of those, and it about 2 weeks time they blew.

SOURCE: Maytag Bravos dryer heats but does not blow air.

Since you did not provide a model number I picked a similar model for reference using this model number: MDE5721TQO (there are at least 40 different model numbers but the blowers are all the same) You blower is driven directly by the motor so unless the blower itself has come apart or the drive spline in the blower has failed in some way you more than likely have a major build up of lint in your dryer.

You can look here to see the blower location http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5133558&diagram_id=1301439#d1301439

You can turn the motor by hand and see if the blower is turning by losening the housing screws for the blower while using a flashlight. If the blower is turning then you need to find out where the blockage of lint has built up and remove it. I would startt around the lint filter. NOTE The drum will also turn.if you rotate the motor pulley. Just make sure the unit is unplugged while you attempt this. If you do locate the blockage I have found that a well bent into a U shaped METAL coat hanger works well. Do NOT poke any sharp objects into the air ducting areas of your dryer while trying to find any blockages and avoid the heating element area with anything metal or sharp. A vacuum crevice tool works great during this task. Good luck and I do hope you are able to locate the problem based on the information here.

Check your high limit on the heater housing. It could also be the light sensor on the side of the heater housing if it dont see light it will turn off the gas . Looks like a little glass window.

Lent seems to be going all over the house. The lent is very fine almost like dust. The discharge vent pipe is not leaking.


when was the last time you cleaned out the dryer?you need to clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,remove the vent line from the back,if it's a long run blow it out with a leaf blower to clean it out,before you blow it go outside and make sure the duct where the flapper is isn't blocked with anything,and then vac out the inside of dryer where the motor is,you should do this once a year so the dryer works properly and your clothes will dry on time

Dryer leaking water


lint is blocking the air from blowing outside and the steam has nowhere to go,you need to clean out your dryer and vent line,go outside and see if the flapper is blowing fully open,if there is a cage on outside vent remove it,if you have a long vent line from the wall to the outside blow it out with a leaf blower,if your lint filter is on top take the back panel off and remove the duct that the filter slides into,if the filter is inside the dryer,remove front panel and remove the duct and clean it out,also vac out the inside of dryer,if your vac has a blower on it blow the lint off the motor,you'll be surprised how much lint will come off the motor,you should do this once a year so you don't have a fire,usually the thermal fuse willpop when dryer gets that backed up

A load was running and then my dryer just turned


SOUNDS LIKE YOU BLEW A FUSE IN YOUR DRYER. THAT WILL HAPPEN WHEN YOU HAVE A VENTALATION PROBLEM. THE FUSE SHOULD BE BEHIND THE BACK COVER-AT THE BOTTOM--TWO WIRES PLUG INTO IT AND IT IS PROBABLY WHITE.

My dryer was just working two minutes ago it shutted itself off and wont go back on again


check to make sure you didn't blow the house fuse, if that's good unplug dryer,remove bottom panel,take out the lint filter,then remove the duct that the lint filter sldes into and you'll see the blower wheel,to the right and on top of the blower wheel housing you'll see the thermal fuse,could be a 3392519 or a 3390719,check that with a meter,while you're there clean out the duct and vac out the inside of dryer,if you have a shop vac,put it on blow and blow off the motor and blow all the lint from the back to the front so you don't have to pull the drum,then check the vent line and make sure the air is blowing open the flapper fully outside,if it's a long run blow the line out from the wall with a leaf blower to clean out all the lint that is built up in it,if the fuse is good you'll have to see if you're getting power down to the motor,could have a bad timer or a burnt wire somewhere,hope this helps,also you should clean out the dryer at least once a year so you don't have any fires

Keeps blowing thermal cutt-off fuse


You need to remove the front dryer panel clean dryer completely of lint . Even where the lint filter is . Also make sure the vent hose is not kinked or filled with water and lint . I changed a thermal cutt-off 3 times in a dryer within about 2 weeks time . On the last time , removed the front panel and filter housing , and a big ball of lint fell out . Cleaned vent housing and inside of dryer and no more problems since .

Hi, I have a Maytag gas Dryer, Legacy series, heavyduty. I clean the lint filter each time used but there is still a build up which I cannot get out unless I remove the filter housing. How do I do this?


you do not have to remove the lint housing all you have to do is go to an applaince store and ask for a lint brush you then take the lint brush and shove it down where the filter goes to loosen the lint turn on your dryer and it will blow it outside
