With a name like Sexydiva69 I'd overheat too! Sounds like your exhaust hose might be clogged. Take it off and make sure you don't have excessive lint buildup anywhere in exhaust system.

It looks like Maytag LSE7806GGE dryer overheat thermal switch shutdown the motor. The motor is new. The vent looks good, plenty of airflow as well. What can be cause of this?


Lots of things.
Here are a few.
If the belt drives the drum, and the drum is not turning freely, perhaps it is loading the motor with too much resistance and the motor is overheating and shutting off.
If there is a bad ground wire anywhere in the system., perhaps the motor is not being grounded properly, and is having an electrical "melt down".
If the dryer is overheating because of lint accumulation inside the pipes of the dryer, perhaps the extra heat is shutting the motor down.
If the dryer is overloaded with clothes or whatever, perhaps the pull is too much for the motor and it overheats.
God bless your efforts.

My Maytag dryer will not not turn the drum. The red light (more or less dry time sensor light) come on. I relaced the door switch. I do not get a beep. What else could be wrong? MDE6000AYW


Hi godinae...
If you hear you motor running then it sounds like you have a broken drum belt...you will need to replace it or have it replaced.
If you do not hear the motor running then it could be the motor or control panel if you have one.

Dryer Paddle Loose


Take the four screws, out of the door and remove it. The front of the dryer will fold down and lift off, you will be able to see in side the dryer. If you want to lift the top remove the screws that are now exposed. Along with the brackets the top will now lift up.

This should allow you to access the tumbler.
