SOURCE: maytag dryer not blowing hot air (2yrs old)

If the vent is blocked, it will not stop the heat, it will only restrict the air flow.

Generally a couple of things can cause the heat to stop.
Either the thermostat or the element.
I would first suggest the element.
It may be fatigued therefore the internal wire within the element becomes fragile and eventually breaks down. Although it is an electrical item, it is mechanically built and can fail.

In some dryers the element is held in clips.
These clips can cut into the element.

The thermostat maintains temeperature but again, it is mechanically built and can also break down.

If you are not capable of inspecting or troubleshooting the internals of the dryer (i.e remove the cover and look for the failurer), then have it inspected by a repairman. There is not too much that can go wrong with a dryer. The most expensive part wuld be the motor that spins the drum.

SOURCE: No hot air for dryer

I would check the air duct discharge real good before taking anything apart! A clog down line will cause the igniter to kick off resulting in blowing cold air! You need to sqeeze the air duct or take it off as lynt is soo light you will not even notice a clog but your dryer will! Good luck!

SOURCE: Maytag Gas Dryer MDG308DAWW doesn't blow hot air, no clicks heard

Look at the bottom of your front panel and see if you can see a screw on either side about 2-3 inches from the very bottom edge of the front panel. If so take them out and pull the bottom away far enough to disengage the top of the front panel from the top panel. If this works for ya. then now you have it openened, if not repost me.

SOURCE: Electric Maytag Neptune Dryer not heating up.

If the dryer won't heat up, the problem is typically either a blown thermal fuse or a faulty heating element. The thermal fuse is located just inside the back of the dryer on or near the exhaust duct. It is about one inch long. The thermal fuse and heating element can be tested using an ohm meter or multimeter. These components should have continuity. If either does not, that component is faulty. There is no telling if the moving around of the machine caused the problem or if the timing of the problem was coincidental. Sure hope this helps ya and best wishes.

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

Maybe that was in addition..they tell us the air flow is blocked and tell us 2 clean our air duct ..but the dryer was blocked on inside..the repair man claimed the belt was off maybe he was blowing smoke..but these are the kind of people they are sending out..trying to blow off as many appointments so they can get off on time.

Blowing cold air


This model dryer has two heating elements, one for the top and one for the bottom, I suspect that the bottom element is burned out. If you want to attempt it yourself then I can send you a service manual that will walk you step by step through the whole dryer.

Make sure all air flow passages are clear. On both sides of the fan, the incoming air vent and the exhaust air vent, all the way to out side of the home.

My maytag neptune dryer doesn't blow any hot air


on top of the heating element on the left side there is a white 2connector part, that is the heater thermal fuse. disconnect the dryer power cord and one wire of the thermal fuse and use a meter to find out if you have continuity to it. if not replace it. also check for burn wires at heating element. also test heating element by disconnecting one wire and using an ohm meter test it at 2 therminals. it shoul measure 10-12 ohms.

Our Neptune only blows super hot air. Which may sound good but it is ruining the clothes. It will not blow cooler air at all. Seems like this problem started more than a month ago. Is there an easy fix...


Clean the lint out of all air passages including the exhaust hose to the outside. Wash the lint filter in hot water and detergent to clean away fabric softener deposits which block air flow. Make sure that nothing is obstructing the air intake for the machine. If the problem continues, the heater thermostat may need to be replaced. Hope this helps!

Mde4000ayw  It runs and hot air comes out the exhaust but clothes take for ever to dry. Help?


Sounds like you may have lint stoping up the vents it could still get some hot air out but not enough. Or maybe one side of the 220 power line has kicked the breaker or a burnt wire in the dryer.Check the outside vent it should be blowing as much air as coming out the dryer.

My maytag front load dryer turns on and runs,it does not blow any hot air


Hi,
Make sure front of dryer is not blocked, air flow is needed to dry.Check that the lint filter and exhaust duct is clean.

Check the blown fuses and home’s circuit breaker tripped. Dryer use 2 household Fuses or a circuit breakers, Replace the Fuses or reset the circuit breaker.

Another common cause of a dryer failing to heat is a faulty Heating Element. You will need to replace it.

Good Luck and have a nice day.
