    The dryer works at random lengths and then shuts off...sometimes it runs for 4 minutes...sometimes 16 minutes..then just stops...clothes are still wet...and when it stops there is no sensing happening or cooling down function as if the clothes were dry...

    Everything works fine...but randomly it shuts off...sometimes it runs for 4 minutes...sometimes 16 mins..the clothes never fully dry though, so its not as if it's sensing the temp, then stopping and cooling down.

    My dryer turns on fine, runs for 5 minutes or so, and then just turns off, in just a few minutes, it will turn on just fine and again the same problem.

Too much stress on the motor might cause the dryer motor to stop for a minute and then start up again. Try turning the drum manually; if it's extremely hard to turn, that may be the source of your problem. I was able to fix this on my GE Profile by removing the front panel and putting more slack in the felt strip. This allowed the drum to turn more freely and I have had no "mid-cycle pauses" ever since.

Maytag dryer 2003 was working great I took one dried load out put another in and started the dryer. Working just fine then I found a wet garment that I dropped so I opened dryer door added this item...


When your dryer won't start, it could be a number of problems from a broken door latch or start switch to an exhaust duct blocked by lint. It could even be a tripped circuit breaker or blown fuse.

The first step in troubleshooting any electrical appliance is to ensure that it is plugged in and receiving power. While dryer plugs do not come loose easily, it can happen.

For more troubleshooting tips, read Dryer won't start for possible causes, signs to look for and things you can do. I hope this helps!

I have a Kenmore Dryer, Model 96292110. It runs, but it does not heat the air. I have checked the circuit breakers. They are fine.


Hello,

If your Maytag dryer has mysteriously stopped producing heat, a blown thermal fuse may be the cause of your problem. In Whirlpool dryers,thermal fuses are safety switches that are designed to disrupt the flow of electricity to your dryer's heating mechanisms once the dryer reaches a predetermined maximum temperature, usually somewhere around 180 degrees F.

Thankfully, troubleshooting the thermal fuse in a Maytag dryer is easier than it sounds.

Instructions And Things You'll Needed.
  • Screwdriver,Towel,Electrical tape,Replacement thermal fuse, if necessary.
1 Clean out thelint screen in your Maytag clothes dryer. Lint buildup can cause your dryerto overheat, triggering the thermal fuse to disrupt power to your dryer'sheating mechanisms. Take the lint screen out of your Whirlpool dryer and washit in warm water. Dry the screen thoroughly before replacing it.

2 Look behindthe dryer to check its flexible exhaust hose for kinks or obstructions.Disconnect the exhaust hose from the back of your dryer and clean out any lintthat has built up.

3 Go outside andcheck your Maytag dryer's exhaust vent for obstructions. Lint buildup, birdnests or other obstructions in the outside exhaust vent can trigger yourdryer's thermal fuse.

4 Disconnectyour dryer from its power source before attempting to access its thermal fuse.

5 Access the thermal fuse in your Maytag dryer byremoving the back panel. Remove the screws that hold the back panel in placeand it should easily come free.

6 Look betweenthe dryer's blower housing and exhaust to locate its thermal fuse. The thermalfuse in a Whirlpool dryer looks like a white plastic strip that has two wiresconnected to it.

7 Bypass the thermal fuse in your Maytag dryer whileyou perform a quick diagnostic test. Use electrical tape to tape together thetwo wires connected to the thermal fuse. Reassemble your dryer and plug it backin. Set the dryer to a timed heated drying cycle and press "Start."If the dryer produces heat with its thermal fuse bypassed, it means the thermalfuse needs to be replaced.

8 Replace a blown thermal fuse in your Maytag dryer.Disconnect the power and remove the back panel. Remove the electrical tape thatyou used to perform the diagnostic test and disconnect the wires from thethermal fuse. Remove the screws that secure the thermal fuse to the dryer anddiscard the blown fuse. Attach the replacement thermal fuse by replacing andtightening the screws. Attach the wires to the new thermal fuse.

Thanks for using fixya.

My dryer doesnt heat. I checked the voltage, and ran through all the diagnostic tests to try to get an error code. Everything works fine when in the test mode. Figuring that all was well i went back to...


Hi, If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes it is still not working properly. if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip.... If you have an electric dryer, you can have many differentthings that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat. check outthis electric no heat tip...

The whole panel works but the time display is dark (no time numbers) if I hit time adjust I can put time on but dryer will sitll not start. I think there was an F73 or F93 error message but we did not...


I wonder if you may have accidentally activated diagnostic mode.
To get out of diagnostic mode press pause /cancel twice or unplug the machine.
I am thinking maybe the you saw an F-23 error which is: exhaust thermistor is open or shorted.

Dryer will not come on and has a 00 symbol on the display


It sounds like the machine is in the diagnostic code mode. This mode is accessed by pressing 'AIR FLUFF' and 'TIME +' together (this also will exit the diagnostic mode).

'00' is a diagnostic code indicating that there are no stored error codes.

Alternatively, try unplugging the dryer, wait a moment, plug it back in and see if that clears the problem.

Display reads F22, dryer shuts off after 1 minute


To enter the diagnostic mode, choose any selector button other than Pause/Cancel and do this little keyboard dance:
Press and hold for three seconds,
release for three seconds;
press and hold for three seconds,
release for three seconds;
press and hold for three seconds.


You’ll know you’ve entered diagnostic mode because all the indicators on the console will light up for five seconds and you’ll see the code “88” in the Estimated Time Remaining display.


the F22 Code you are getting is the exhaust block or overheat!!! DO NOT USE YOUR DRYER UNTIL YOU CLEAN THE EXHAUST OUT! this is a MAJOR fire hazard


it may also be as simple as a lose wire or something like a bad sensor but chances are that your dryer is doing what its supposed to so that you dont have a fire :)
