Your belt is broken or off track. If that isn't your problem than your run capacitor or motor is bad. Either way, you'll probably need a service man. It is one of the three.

Dryer not drying clothes


Hello, does the dryer drum turn? If the dryer drum is moving. Is the dryer blowing hot air, cold air, no air at all? Now, if it's doing everything mention above escept blowing hot air then you'll need a new heating element. If not blow air, then the drum belt is broken, belt off, or the drum motor has gone south. It was put for a quitt. Which mean in New Mexico, they fired me, I don't work, no job, finished, I'am out of here, don't bury me with my wires exposed. I hope I was some help to you. have a nice day and be safe, GB. stewbison

Can 3431 be converted to a regular vented dryer?


You cannot convert this model. This unit blows hot air into drum and the water is turned to steam and exhausted out through the pump to the drain. Unlike regular dryers that blow hot air into drum, creating link and just heat that blow out vent.

Air flow and heating problem inside dryer.


???? this doesnt make much sense, can see how you would be measuring air flow within the cabinet??? air blowing out unit strong means your gettin good air flow fom within, that is a direct relation as to the amount of (hot) air being pulled across the clothing

Ive got a hotpoint electric dryer that intermitantly blows hot air..in other words sometimes it wroks while other times dosent blow that much needed hot air to dry clothes..ive tried different things like...


Sounds like the drum is not turning under heavy load.this is a common problem with dryers but usually easily remedied if a competent diyer. first check the theory by putting in big load and see if drum turns. if not then replacing capacator should cure it.

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.
