Question about Maytag Dryers
Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.
This is generally an airflow issue. Restricted airflow will cause the hi-limit thermal protector to open and turn off the heat in order to prevent a lint fire, or fabric melt issue. Remove the exhaust vent from the dryer and ascertain that there are no obstruction/restriction to the vent hood, Include the vent hood in your inspection to make sure it has not been crushed or damaged. Make sure your lint filter is cleaned after each load. Do not use fabric sheets as this will place an invisible coating on the lint filter that restricts airflow, (Replace filter). Do not overload the dryer. If your washer is newer, then larger loads are capable of overloading the dryer.
A blower malfunction or worn belts could cause lower airflow issues. Replace if worn.
