Question about Dryers
Our Maytag gas dryer runs (and drys) for 30-45 minutes, then shuts off and won't restart for 30 minutes. We have redirected the vent so there is on 90 degree bend and 3 feet of stove pipe to the outside. We have replaced the motor, timer, and thermostat. Maytag won't even talk to us any more. What is shutting down this dryer?
Please provide the model number and I will see if I can figure something out.
It sounds like you have covered the common problems. Usually a motor is the cause for this problem, it gets hot and shuts down until it cools off. I have had some problems with the auto dry controls on the Maytags also.
Are you equiped to do some voltage checks if we need too? This would help in knowing where you have power when it quits.
