Accidentally ran dryer with lint guard pulled out. Now squeaks and turns off when started.


It is possible that while the lint filter was out, a small article of clothing went down into the slot and is stuck in the blower motor. You may be able to see it if you can look into the filter slot with a flashlight. If you see something, pull power plug out and try something like a clothes hanger to get it out. May require taking the front off if it is stuck bad.

Where is the lint filter? Why does it put lint all over clothes?


lint is usually removed in the dryer. If you have lint on clothes after going through the wash, you probably left something in a pocket somewhere.

Brand new dryer. **** went down lint filter area


You may have to remove the front panel to enter the air passages and blower fan. Try feeding a vacuum cleaner hose (remove the metal hose end) into the area behind the filter to see if can pick up whatever dropped into it. Hope this helps!

Ihave a maytag atlantis gas dryer model mdg7400aww that when I first start it up it gets warm but then stops heating? what is the problem


The operator coils get hot and quit on these ,when they get a little age on them, quite difficult to diagnose. If the coil feels hot to the touch after failure then that is a clue. f00c98f.jpg

My Maytag Atlantis dryer won't start. I checked


If a dryer is not working at all that's not good! But it doesn't mean you need to go appliance shopping just yet. It may be something very simple like a broken door latch, a bad door switch or even a broken door switch actuator, in a kenmore dryer there is a tab thats sticks out of a hole in the wall that allows the dryer to run only if the door is shut, other models may have button that protrudes out of the dryer and when the door is shut, this allows the dryer to run. These switches go out from time to time, also if a dryer is full of lint build-up over time this will cause the dryer high limit or fuse to blow. The fuse is located near where the blower is in most cases. When the air in the dryer gets way too hot the fuse/hi-limit will blow and the house wont burn down

My lint trap has very little lint.


Older clothes do not produce as much lint as new ones. Also, if your dryer isn't getting as hot as it used to, then you won't get as much lint either. Does it seem to take a bit longer to dry your clothes? Also, check your dryer vent, if the airflow is reduced, the amount of lint that is expelled through the filter will deminish as well. You may have a build up of lint in the vent ducting to the outside that is restricting airflow.
