Maytag coin op dryer timer programming for mde-16cs

I am trying to increase the dry time for my tenants. They complain of damp clothes. Currently no cam installed and it stops after ~30 minutes.

Can you tell me how to increase the cycle time?

It is a Maytag commercial model # MDE 16CS.

I have an electrical schematic # 6 3708150-1197.

Re: maytag coin op dryer timer programming for mde-16cs

The maximum run time on this machine's timer is 54 min. There is an adjustable peg on the white plastic index wheel which you can adjust anywhere from 30 to 54 min. For example peg in position E is 30min, D is 36min, C is 42min, B is 48min or for 54 min you have to remove the adjustable peg completely, but don't lose it in case you want to change the time in the future. If it is already in the Max "A" position and shuting off early you might have to change your torsion return spring. Hope this helps

Coin-operated dryer won't turn off at end of cycle.

A dryer timer is a real simple device. Take the whole thing out and give it a good inspection. A little wd 40 can do wonders. A bad coin in the works can jam it on. Put a coin thru the works, watch the action. The timer motor can fail or get stuck, spray and test.

Maytag Bravos Dryer (1 mo. old) timer does not change from start

Maytag Bravos 400 Series Dryer purchased August 2009 - November 2009 required repair as I also experience the timer readjusting itself to excessive extended drying time when clothing was bone dry and hot. Sometimes extended to 1 hour 40 minutes! Serviceman stated problem was the Sensors in the dryer. Part number 8577274 Thermister and "Old Ohmed out open" whatever that means as listed on my repair ticket. Have not had that particular problem since. Make sure your dryer vents from dryer to outside are clean and clear of lint. Will help immensely. I have many other issues with this dryer it has been down FOUR times in 9 months. Fighting with Maytag to replace this lemon!

I have a coin op dryer modle cem2760kq0 i put im a new timer in but it dose not stop runing?

mechanical coin op timers come without the shut off cam installed
there are slots around the edge corresponding to different times, that take a pin cam. the pin cam is in the box for the installer to insert to the owners specification, between 24 and 60 minutes in 6 minute intervals usually, hope you retained the packaging, or the old timer which should have its cam pin still in it

electronic coin op timers have to be programmed
