Your exhaust vent is probably plugged. Remove venting from the dryer and check for lint build-up, and also check the vent flap on the outside of your house for clogs. If venting appears to be clear, you might have a bad blower (although you should notice an abnormal noise with that).

SOURCE: No hot air for dryer

I would check the air duct discharge real good before taking anything apart! A clog down line will cause the igniter to kick off resulting in blowing cold air! You need to sqeeze the air duct or take it off as lynt is soo light you will not even notice a clog but your dryer will! Good luck!

SOURCE: Electric Maytag Neptune Dryer not heating up.

If the dryer won't heat up, the problem is typically either a blown thermal fuse or a faulty heating element. The thermal fuse is located just inside the back of the dryer on or near the exhaust duct. It is about one inch long. The thermal fuse and heating element can be tested using an ohm meter or multimeter. These components should have continuity. If either does not, that component is faulty. There is no telling if the moving around of the machine caused the problem or if the timing of the problem was coincidental. Sure hope this helps ya and best wishes.

SOURCE: dryer does not heat up.

Hello there:
normally on these units if the dryer was working ok and then suyddenly stopped heating your heating element or the ignitor (excitor ) has failed and is need of replacement
so i would start by having these things checked first by contacting a local repair man to do a evaluation on the unit and if kyou still have a valid warranty i would use it ok
I hope that this is very helpful for you
Best regards Richard

My maytag neptune dryer doesn't blow any hot air


on top of the heating element on the left side there is a white 2connector part, that is the heater thermal fuse. disconnect the dryer power cord and one wire of the thermal fuse and use a meter to find out if you have continuity to it. if not replace it. also check for burn wires at heating element. also test heating element by disconnecting one wire and using an ohm meter test it at 2 therminals. it shoul measure 10-12 ohms.

No hot air when the dryer is running


Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes 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 different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.


check out this electric no heat tip...

My maytag front load dryer turns on and runs,it does not blow any hot air


Hi,
Make sure front of dryer is not blocked, air flow is needed to dry.Check that the lint filter and exhaust duct is clean.

Check the blown fuses and home’s circuit breaker tripped. Dryer use 2 household Fuses or a circuit breakers, Replace the Fuses or reset the circuit breaker.

Another common cause of a dryer failing to heat is a faulty Heating Element. You will need to replace it.

Good Luck and have a nice day.

Maytag neptune running very hot


two more things you can check are a blockage prior to your lint trap ( you can usually tell by how much air is coming out of the exhaust) and run it on the air only function which should not engage the heat element at all. If you are electrically inclined you can check the power to the element to see if its shorted to an " on" condition this is a bit complicated and dangerous to do so I wouldn't advise it. 220 plug runs one circuit for the element and one for the motor to turn the drum.

It runs but no there is no hot air


the first thing you want to make sure is that the igniter is working, remove the orfice on the front of the dryer, an start the dryer cycle, it should glow if it doesn't then you have a bad igniter, if the igniter glows an you have no heat (at all) you want to check the thermalfuse onthe dryer, check for continuity with a voltage tester it it beeps means is ok , if it doesn't pass current replace it,
if you get partial heat only then it would look into the coils, the 2 coils are inside on the front of the unit. coils are replace for the most when your dryer takes a longer cycle meaning it takes longer to dry or finishes an clothing still damp.

good luck.
