Test and eventually replace the Dryer thermal fuse
The fuse is located on the blower wheel cover.
The fuse can be tested using a multimeter.
If the fuse has continuity , then is good.

Test the heating element and the thermostat Thermal cut-off .

Both are tested using a multimeter to read impedance. Set multimeter at Rx1, on Ohms.

To test the element disconnect element and point tester probes at element contact.
If there is no continuity, and the circuit is open, then the element is faulty.

The thermostat can be tested jumping its wires to bypass it, but there are many safety concerns doing this kind of test.
Better disconnecting the thermostat and reading Ohms, as for the element.
At room temp the thermostat must have low impedance, if it goes to infinity, and circuit is open at room temperature, then the thermostat is bad.

If both test good, and you have no heating at all, then it may be a bad electronic control, or a wiring problem.

All test and repair must be done by a technician.

If you need to contact a technician you can call the number listed on the owners manual.

Heat only blows out strong out drivers side cool and weak out pass side


Either the air duct is clogged or the internal loover is not opening the vent to the output vent. You will need to remove the end screen on the vent and feel inside while someone turns the air flow from floor vents to chest height vents...back and forth to feel if the inside loover is moving. If not, try to find either the air hose control or wire control on the loover disconnected.

The hot air won't circulate to upperstairs


2 possible causes. 1 there is a blockage in the ventilation system (possible collasped ductwork) or 2 the fan motor is going out. The motor could be going out due to the winding swelling as the motor is run heating the winding causing the windings to swell slowing the motors rpms.

Strong odor coming from dryer


Usually when there is a strong heat (burn) smell from the heat element, it is telling you that there is poor air flow. This has nothing to do with the model. It is a blocked or restricted vent line, or an internal blower wheel malfunction or a lint blockage further in the machine that is restricting the air flow. WHEN AIR MOVES CORRECTLY, THE ELEMENT HEATS NORMALLY AND DOES NOT GIVE ANY OVERHEAT ODER.

Maytag gas dryer doesn't dry properly


SOUNDS LIKE A RESTRICTION IN THE VENT. CHECK AIR FLOW WHERE VENT EXITS HOUSE. IF IT IS NOT STRONG, INSPECT VENT LINE BEHIND DRYER. IS IT CRUSHED OR CLOGGED WITH LINT? THIS WILL CAUSE DRYER TO SHORT CYCLE. IF VENT IS NOT CLOGGED, CHECK AIR FLOW AT BACK OF DRYER WITH VENT DISCONNECTED. IS AIR FLOW STRONG? OF NOT, PROBLEM IS WITH BLOWER.

Air flow and heating problem inside dryer.


???? this doesnt make much sense, can see how you would be measuring air flow within the cabinet??? air blowing out unit strong means your gettin good air flow fom within, that is a direct relation as to the amount of (hot) air being pulled across the clothing

Air flow weak when set to heat


check for dirty cab air inlet or "HVAC" filter, or heater core is plugged from debris and air is being restricted and wont blow through. it works like a radiator, air ducts can also be getting stuck.
