Question about Maytag Neptune MDG5500AW Gas Dryer
It sounds to me like a problem with either a) poor venting/obsruction of some kind...possibly kinked hose ? or b) the blower wheel in the unit responsible for moving the air is spinning freely on the motor shaft.
Check your venting first, insure you have a strong flow of air where the unit exhaust's outside. if yes, good. if no...pull the vent off from the back of the dryer itself and make sure you get good air flow (exhaust) there. If you don't get any or very little flow with the vent off, chances are likely you have a broken blower wheel.
These are the most common and likely sources of a dryer that actually heats, but takes a long time to dry garments.
(Another possible cause that goes unnoticed often, is no issue with the dryer at all, but the washer not spinning properly,(kinked drain) be it mechanical or overloading...check that too).
hope that helps
