Question about Maytag MDG7600AW Gas Dryer

Maytag LDE412 Dryer

My dryer seems to be working correctly and drying but I have to run it 2 or 3 times to dry a load. When you open it the air is hot just does not seem to be hot enough to run it one cycle. If I set it on the 60 minute cycle it takes 2 or 3 of those before the load is dry.

Any help would be great.

The vent that takes the air from the dryer out of the house is clogged. not the part right behind the dryer but from where it goes into the wall to where it leaves the house needs to be cleaned. when the air cant leave the dryer at normal speed it takes for ever to dry a load of clothes

There is not much hot air in dryer so it takes a long time to dry one load

restriction in the vent tube or dryer itself: first remove vent tube run the dryer if it drys correctly vent tube, if not then take dryer apart and clean the lint from below lint screen to vent tube connection. Good Luck Tim

Model MDE5500AYW. Seems like dryer occasionally overheats when in sensor dry mode. Lint screen and vent are clean and plenty of air flow. One time the sensor works fine (minute timer drops and unit shuts...

there isn't a timer on this machine,you have a control board,if the time isn't counting down correctly sounds like you have a bad control board that's inside the console

Front load MDE2400AZW takes forever to dry stuff. A regular load takes 1 1/2 hrs to dry,but the heat is on, and it seems to work.

Make sure the lint trap in the door is clean. It has a plastic cover that opens. Disconnect the venting at the rear and run a load, if it works you have a restriction in the hose after the dryer or in the wall past the hose.

My Maytag gas dryer is not heating correctly. It gets warm, but takes several cycles to dry even small loads.

If you have'nt done it yet, my first suggestion would be to have the vent on the dryer (inside the dryer all the way to the fan chamber) and the dryer vent pipe to the outside thoroughly cleaned.
That is leading cause for dryers not drying completely.
Also, has the dryer always been a bit slow to dry cloths? If so, try leaving a window open the next time and see if it makes a difference. Some houses are sealed so tight, the dryer can't get enough air. A typical dryer will use up to 200 cu/ft of air per minute when drying. If there is not sufficient air, the cloths take longer to dry.
Good luck, let me know.

NOt drying clothes like it should

Has air flow problem, check to make sure the vent going to the outside is not blocked. If it isnt, you should be able to take off back cover of dryer. Should be a duct that air goes through, take it apart and make sure there is no lint in bottom of it. I had the same problem and that fixed it.

Longer time to dry clothes

Remove the rear connecting vent and run a 45 minute timed dry load. If it works correctly repair the connecting vent and or blockage in the wall.
If this does not correct the problem make sure the glow bar is cycling at the gas valve and report back for further repair.

My dryer will not dry,eventhough the dryer gets hot

Your exhaust vent on the rear or the connecting vent to the outside if blocked with lint.
Remove the vent from the rear of the dryer and run a timed load at 40 minutes.
If it is dry your problem is with your connecting vents.

Maytag dryer no hot air

check power supply and make sure you have correct power. It will run with only 110 volts but wont heat. If good check heating element, thermal fuse.
