Question about Maytag MDE308DAYW Electric Dryer

2 Answers

Maytag MDE308DAYW Electric. Taking a really long time to dry any type of load. Have verified link collection area and exhaust venting is all clear. Heat element is working. Impeller appears to be working. My own impression, air is not pulling through tumbler. I can feel heat, but air is not pulled through lint filter a strong as compared to exhaust vent going out. Far as I can tell, moisture sensor is working.

Hello. You have a lint block somewhere. check inside of the filter compartment with a flashlight. If not there, pull the dryer out, remove the vent pipe and check inside the vent within the dryer. Finally check from outdoors to be sure that the flapper works properly and that there is no blockage there.

Hi.
Check the lint filter (part 25 on first diagram below) , and eventually replace it.
Check also the main air duct, part 24 on diagram. Also ensure that the duct is well attached on both sides , and that there is no possible air leak.

MED6400TQ0 taking too long to dry


Problems could be:
1) the pipe and hoses that take the hot air out of the machine to the outside could be plugged with lint. The worst kind are in apartments where you cannot see where the pipe goes. If this is it, taking the hose off completely and exhausting to the room air may show you that was what was wrong. The inside of the machine can also be loaded with lint, requiring a dismantling of the whole machine to clean it.
2) Are the clothes almost dry coming from the washer? If a washer begins to have problems like a slipping drive belt, it can leave the clothes too wet, overwhelming the dryer.
3) I've seen a heating element partially fail, causing this problem.
Be blessed.

My maytage dryer mde308dayw drys the clothes, but it takes a longtime. The dryer heats, but water builds up around the inside of the door of the dryer.


You will need to clean the vent system on your dryer. Lint buildup restricts the airflow and will keep the clothes from drying.

Taking long time to dry the clothes


Due to a dryer either heats or no heat , I would suggest pulling the dryer out and removing the vent hose . Dry a load of clothes to see if they dry normally . If they do , this verifys that the vent hose is either kinked ( restricting air flow ) , or , if the vent runs UP inside the wall , there is a restriction between the inside vent hose to the outside vent . May have to go into the attic to clean .

My maytag gas dryer has always taken a very long time to dry clothes....usually 2 hours. I have had it for 8 years and it has been this way the whole time. is this normal?


i would check air flow out of vent normally with plugged vent extreame amount of moisture is present in dryer on high temperature of air moving through dryer is
max about 140 degrees normally with room temperature arpund 70 the drying time is normally 60minutes or less
contributing factors to long dry time
pinched vent hose final rinse cold water
below 50 degrees remove vent screen inside dryer clean with hot water shine flashlight into vent opening verify not plugged if have candy or probe type
temperature gauge verify temperature
at vent exit

It is taking 3 full cycles to dry my small loads on my Maytag Performa PYE2300AYW. I have cleaned lint tray and trap. I need to clean the lint from the inside of my dryer - How do I do this?


The main area that you have to clean is the pipe leading from the back of your dryer to outdoors. Pull your dryer away from the wall. Unplug it. Unfasten the vent pipe. Now look into the back of the dryer exhaust and remove any lint you see there then look into the vent pipe and remove any lint. Finally go outdoors and remove any lint you see in the pipe or the pipe grill/cover.

Maytag Neptune Dryer is taking over an hour to dry a load


Check the exhaust vent out back of dryer to see if exhaust pipe going outside is crimped or blocked. Let me know if air flow is better if pipe is pulled off back of dryer. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Heats up but not drying!!


The Vent is CLOGGED !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
TRUST ME
There is no other possible reason for the dryer taking a long time to dry other than vent restrictions or just poorly built duct.
DO NOT RUN THE DRYER WITH THE DOOR OPEN
Not only can it damage the dryer it can catch fire!!!
