My maytag atlantis dryer heats up but on any cycle the dryer doesnt run long enough to dry the clothes i have to turn it on two or more times to dry clothes


Hi,

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have nottaken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then youneed to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should takeplace. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causesfor your dryer to fail.

Change cord and now does not heat up


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

If you have already tried cleaning the vent then the problem is with the Thermal fuse. When the thermal fuse goes bad it cannot be reset and replacing it is recommended repair.It is located on the blower wheel housing inside the rear panel to the exhaust duct. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

This Maytag Atlantis heats too hot; I cleaned off all the lint deposit from the drier itself and from the ducts, but it is still too hot, with heat coming out even in fluff. please help.


There are high/heat limit switches in the rear near the heating element. The switch needs to be replaced because its not shutting the heat off when it reaches correct temperature. Rear of dryer needs to be disassembled for this repair...............

Dryer does maintain heat


I need a little help here. Your post.... "Dryer does maintain heat"

With the comment: "igniter glows and flame goes on after rest"

So far everything your desribed is most likely normal operation.

Are you saying that the "Dryer does NOT maintain heat properly?" AND that the flame cycles on and off way too often?

I will send this as a solution however.... if you need more help just reply to this post.

-- If you disconnect the dryer vent ducting and it works normally the ducting is clogged up.

--If it still operates the same with the vent disconnected then the dryer air passages are clogged up with lint. Use a crevice tool and something like a folded over metal coat hanger to clean up the air passages

--This can include the lint filter itself if you use dryer sheets. The filter will appear clean but will not allow airflow due to the dryer fabric sheet particulate build up on the filter. Wash it with vinegar and water then soap and water. Make sure to clean the air passages around the lint filter.

--If after all of the above the dryer is still doing the same thing check the airflow out of the back of the dryer. It should gently push a relaxed hand and wrist away from the vent outlet hole. If it does not and your sure all of the air passages are clean then there is a good possibility that the blower wheel has failed and is spinning on the motor shaft vs being driven at full speed.

Also if you respond and need more help please include all of your model number or confirm that MDE7400AY is the correct model number.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Mdg2600bww is not ignighting, cleared ventline, turns on, just no heat


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.

I love the Maytag Atlantis!!! This sounds like your motor may be bad. It's NOT the element or it would not heat at all. Hope this helps!

Dryer stopped working after 2-3 minutes


Go out and buy you a duct cleaner. It looks like a dome shaped broom. Clean your duct from the outside and if you can from the inside. Also if you use fabric softener sheets, clean your lint filter with soap and water periodically (every 3 months would be optimal) to remove the clear residue the dryer sheets can leave behind.

Good Luck!

THE AIR FLOW THROUGH THE DRYER BEGINS UP THROUGH THE HEATER AND INTO THE DRUM THROUGH THE HOLES INSIDE THE DRUM TO THE LEFT IN THE REAR.
THESE HOLES ARE METALIC IN COLOR AND MAY SHOW SIGNS OF DISCOLORATION DUE TO THE HEAT OF THE HEATER ASSEBLY. FROM THERE, THE AIR WILL FLOW ACROSS THE CLOTHES AND THROUGH THE LINT FILTER.
IF YOUR LINT FILTER IS LOCATED ON TOP OF THE DRYER,
THE HOLES WILL BE IN THE BACK WALL OF THE DRUM ON THE RIGHT. IF YOUR FILTER IS LOCATED IN THE FRONT OF THE DRUM, THE HOLES WILL BE JUST BELOW IT.

USUALLY, LINT WILL COLLECT DOWN INSIDE THE SPACE WHERE YOU INSERT THE FILTER ON A FRONT LOCATION.
PULL THE FILTER OUT AND LOOK DOWN INSIDE. USE A CENTER CARDBOARD FROM GIFT WRAP TO CLEAN OUT THIS AREA. FLATTEN OUT THE CARDBOARD ROLL AND PUT IT DOWN IN THE SPACE ATTACHING THE OTHER END TO A VACUUM CLEANER HOSE.
ALSO, DISCONNECT THE DUCT WORK FROM THE REAR OF THE DRYER AND CLEAN OUT THE DRYER DUCT AND THE HOUSE HOLD EXHAUST DUCTING. WHEN REATTACHING THE FLEX DUCT TO THE BACK OF THE DRYER, MAKE SURE THERE ISN'T ANY EXCESS FLEX DUCT SNAKING BEHIND THE DRYER. CUT IT TO THE LENGTH NEEDED. MAKE SURE IT ISN'T FLATTENED BETWEEN THE DRYER AND THE WALL WHEN YOU MOVE THE DRYER BACK INTO PLACE.

If still heating, clean out vent and check for kinks. Also, REMOVE PLUG FIRST!! Remove back and remove four screw holding filter duct assembly at bottom left. Pull duct toward rear and reach into bottom of duct and remove lint. Also, wash out filter screen.
