Question about Maytag HYG2460AWW Gas Dryer

2 Answers

Dryer heats then stops heating.

My vent was clogged inside of dryer. Cleaned out and airflow is good. The dryer heats for a couple of minutes and then will not heat up again. I replaced the thermal fuse and the high limit. Dryer still heating up for a couple of minutes and not coming back on. Could this be a coil problem? What do you suggest?

If the cleaning helped before, maybe something is still clogged. Check particularly the area around the lint filter. Take it out and see if you can remove lots of lint, maybe with something like a coat hanger and a bit of skill and care. I have found air passages to lint filters crammed, particularly when people have neglected cleaning the filter.

Sometimes, if the room is dark and you look the right place (like maybe the back panel grill), it is easy to see the light of the coils turning off and on. Sometimes that behavior can provide a clue.

What is fault code 6 mean?


Hi Darrell, The link below is about how to trouble shoot and fix your dryer.....I hope this helps.....CHEERS..
http://removeandreplace.com/2013/09/21/fix-clothes-dryer-heating-drying-clothing/
The most common causes for an electric or gas dryer to stop drying or heating is:
1. The dryer lint screen (lint trap) has not been cleaned (poor or restricted airflow).
2. A clogged or kinked (bent) dryer air vent hose (inadequate or no airflow).
3. Drum has stopped turning, broken drum drive belt.
4. Overheated or bad motor (possible thermal overload).
5. Thermal fuse or thermostat (could be caused from dryer air vent hose lint buildup)
6. Heating element burnt out.
7. Loose electrical plug or power socket.
8. Other mechanical issue, fault or malfunction.

It takes the dryer 2 hours to dry the clothes. I always make sure lint filter is cleaned after each cycle.


Hello there and thanks for choosing fixya
Note: Normal drying time for a dryer is about 45 minutes (some may take up to an hour).

1. Venting
Make 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.

3. Heating element
A heating element might only be partially burned out, in which case it would still work but will take longer time to dry the clothes. Replace the element if found defective.
3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Kenmore 11062912100 lost heat changed thermal cutoff & TSTAT cleaned everthing has good airflow also checked timer switch 2 operating normally. any ideas


did you check the outside vent sometimes they clog up with lint and will not dry properly this is the vent that sits on the outside wall of your house when they clog up the warm air trying to escape is backed up and causes the dryer to think it is getting more heat than it needs this is not the one inside your dryer

Dryer will not dry clothes after 60 minutes in the dryer clothes still wet just like they had just come out of the washer.


The reason you are not getting the cloths dry after 60 minutes and are just as wet is airflow or rather the lack thereof.

First verify that you dryer is actually starting, (I know... you're thinking, duh!) but simple things first. Let the dryer run on high heat for about 2 minutes and open the door. See if there's actually heat coming out of the door. If there is, that's a good sign. Did the drum seem to be tumbling? if yes, this also is a good sign.

Next turn the dryer to fluff/no heat and turn it on. Go outside and check the dryer vent (if possible) and see if there is a reasonable amount of airflow coming out. Most likely it will be weak (since your cloths aren't drying.) Now that you have checked that, go inside, disconnect the dryer hose on the back of the dryer. Compare the airflow from the outside vent. If it is considerably stronger than outside, your ducting needs cleaned. If it is about the same and still weak, something is blocking airflow in your dryer.

Here's a decision point. If you feel you don't want to try to fix the dryer yourself, get someone qualified or take it to a qualified maintenance shot for the dryer. If you feel up to the task, FIRST unplug the dryer, then you'll have to disassemble the dryer (can't give you specifics without the model number) and find the clog and remove it. Once the clog is removed (very likely lots of lint and maybe even a sock or two) reassemble the dryer, hook the vent hose back up, plug it in, try to dry your cloths.

Hope that helps

Reduced airflow due to a clogged screen or obstructed vent will cause the burner to short cycle if it heats up with the vent disconnected you know there is a problem with the exhaust.

Dryer not drying well


Most of the time when a dryer does not do well in drying it isn't getting the airflow it needs to get the moisture out. Heat alone will not dry things. If you can reach your outside dryer vent outlet, turn your dryer on and see if you are getting a good amount of warm air. You can also try the same at the back of your dryer by unhooking the hose. If there is a noticeable difference, your vent system may need to be cleaned. Dryers put out a LOT of air, it is low pressure, but high volume. If you are not getting much out of your dryer, chances are the lint is clogging up most likely before the blower motor.

Also another possibility is that you have the airflow and limited heat. Check the airflow first after you have run it on high heat for about 1 minute, if you do not feel warm/hot air coming out, you may have a problem with a high limit fuse (temp fuse) or a thermostat that isn't working.

That's all I can come up with on the limited information.

I have whirlpool dryer that the heat seems to kick on and off it is gas dryer


If heats for a few minutes then cuts off (heat) , then the 2 coils on the burner valve are probably bad . OR check the vent hose to the outside for good air flow . Sometimes , a dryer is pushed too far back , and it kinks the vent hose . If coils are bad , when dryer cools down , then restarting , cool coils will heat again for a few minutes , then stop heating till they cool off again .

No heat


I would bet that you have a clogged vent to the outside. remive vent from dryer and run unit.If itworks like it should, get your vent to the outside cleaned.
Sidenote: make sure that your filter in the dryer has been cleaned!

good luck!
