Re: Dryer lent sign and wont run

Dryer sheets deposit a film on filters. Take it out and hold it under running water and you'll see water won't go through. So every 3 months or so, take the filter out and clean with an old toothbrush to remove this waxy deposit. This problem can also cause dryer fires if filter is not cleaned periodically. Hope this helps!

My maytag 3000 series dryer is not even a year old untill 2 more days, it does not dry my clothes no matter what setting I have it on the lent trap gets cleaned about 2 or 3 times during each cycle,yet it...

oooow,,,temper temper,,,,take a deep breath,,,
i think the temp censor has stoped working thats why its not getting very hot its that or the heating coil/s are broken,,also check the air vents at the back are not blocked up if so its not getting any air to it,,,
then go out and find a big stick,,,and batter it with the stick,,,
this realy wont help fix it,,but it will make you feel soooo much better?

Not drying completly seems not alot of lent on lent filter

Your rear connecting exhaust vent must be removed and cleaned out.
If it is the flexible vent material it must be un-kinked or mashed when reattached.
Run a 50 minute timed dry cycle with the vent completely off.
If the load dries OK,the connecting vent is the problem.

Lent is damp dryer takes too long to dry and burning smell

Your burning smell might just be lint which has been loosened by you, getting onto the dryer's heating element. If this is the case, the smell should not last long, nor will it damage the dryer.

Not drying clothes, heat is on, lots of moisture in dryer

hi there,

This is a classic sign that you need to unclog or improve the dryer venting to the outside of the building.

One of the most important functions of a dryer is the elimination of moisture recovered during the heating of damp clothing. A typical 12-pound load of laundry can weight as much as 20-pounds when first removed from a washer. The extra 8-pounds is water. That moisture is held as humidity in the warm air produced by the dryer and is normally expelled to the outdoors through the dryer's vent. If this air can not be adequately removed, poor drying will result.

This moisture can also condense into pools of water in the dryer vent, eventually leaking out. Moisture accumulation inside the dryer ducting is often a sign of poor venting which should be looked into

good luck!!

Dryer has heat..but very low temp , takes forever

Make sure that your vent pipe is completely clear of excess lent. It will not dry properly if the venting is not running freely. If the unit is cleared of lent, inside and out, the only other possibility is the thermostat is not reading correctly.
