Question about Maytag Atlantis MDE7400AY Electric Dryer
Very time we use the dryer it blow dust from the bottom of the dryer and dust goes thru the house no leak in the flex hose good air flow but bottom of the there a lot of dust at the bottom
Most probably blower wheel is loose on shaft,need to replace or shaft witch leads to exhaust is blocked by something creating a back draft in dryer

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.

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.

When I turn the dryer on, only cold air blows out. There's no heat. I cleaned out the vents? What do you think is my problem> Thank you very much. K

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.
