Question about Maytag Neptune MDG5500AW Gas Dryer
The dryer heats slightly when the timer is set to 50 minutes but does not get hot enough. It has to run through the 50 minute cyle twice. It will not heat on other settings.
HI, Check the following to address this issue further.
Note: Normal drying time for a dryer is about 45 minutes (some may take up to an hour).
Make sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct, is not clogged.
Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance repairman perform this task.
There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance. Replace the defective thermostat. These thermostats are located in the dryer vent duct and sometimes mounted on the blower assembly as well.

I want to bypass timer, and have dryer turn on and off when I open and close the door, how do I do this. I am an electrician, but I am worried if I bypass the timer that I will bypass the door too.
