When you say part of what was on it fell off was this lint or a piece of the dryer? If the switch on the door has broken the dryer will not run. In this case you will need to replace the switch / lever.

SOURCE: F02 Error on Maytag Epic.

I just wanted to confirm stopgo's solution. A few notes/elaborations:

  1. Open the front door of the washer, and run your hand behind the big, gray rubber gasket. You might feel/see small items stuck there.
  2. If you kneel in front of the washer and look along the very bottom edge, you'll see 3 screws in a row. They are of the "torx" type. Unscrew them and then jiggle out the bottom panel. Inside you'll see a large plastic (off-white color) drain, and you can unscrew the 3-inch diameter cap off it and pull it out. The backside of the cap is a filter. Clear it out and put it back in. (We found a baby sock there).
Note also that when you pull out the bottom panel and look inside the cavity of the machine, there is a special manual for service technicians, stuck on the inside wall. I pulled that out -- there were some interesting/helpful information on that sheet telling you how to troubleshoot problems, including checking the drain filter.

Funny that the instructions for checking the drain filter cannot be accessed until you open the bottom panel to check the drain filter!

Maytag Bravos XL MCT will not start, light is stuck on "detecting" under airflow. All vents and lint trap are clear.

If the vent output is clear and lint trap is clear, then there are a couple of more hidden spots that air can get backed up.
First off, unplug the dryer before doing any of this. There's a lot of current to that plug, and getting killed is a really bad way to detect a bad wire or to identify where the heater coil inlet is.

  1. Inlet to the heater area. Laundry rooms have lint in them. All the air that gets blown out the back has to come from somewhere. make sure you don't have a clump o dust bunnies on another section of the rear panel.
  2. The blower motor itself. The lint filter can't get everything. The first time I took the back off my old Kenmore and opened up that area after the lint trap, it was like looking at a chalkboard eraser. Solid lint. The fins in the blower were packed tight with more lint. Cleaned it all out, and it ran better than it had in years.
  3. If the wall/floor connector for the vent hose goes anywhere but straight through the wall to outside, look down the hose and clear what you can, then go outside to the outlet and make sure it's not blocked, jammed, frozen shut, or what have you. Clean what you can from that end too.

    Hope this helps!
Good Luck!

Hi, My maytag bravos dryer is one year and 2 months old. Suddenly it has stopped drying the clothes, it takes forever to dry a load and clothes are very warm and wet, lots of steam in the dryer, also the...

Sounds like the exhaust fan is not working. There's an electric blower at the back of the unit that forces air out through the exhaust vent. Unplug the unit, pull the vent off the back, and see if you can reach in and touch the fan blades and make them move. If it won't move something is probably caught in there. You may need to take off the back of the unit and remove the housing cover to the fan assembly in order to really tell what's going on, but it sounds like your fan has an obstruction. It could also be that the fan motor is fried but that seems less likely. Remember to have the unit unplugged, there's some dangerous voltage inside.

''AF'' error on Maytag Bravos dryer

"AF" means "Air Flow". Your vents are cloged with lint. I have had to vaccum out my vents several times, both inside and out. It's been a bit of a pain.
