My maytag gas dryer work on dry cloth and stays hot but as soon as i put wet cloths in it they wont dry ?

My dryers timer wouldn't work correctly and the clothes were taking forever to dry. I decided to check the vent. My advice....Always check your dryer vent before spending any money on unnecessary parts or service calls. This Nest was pulled out of my vent with my shop vac sucking out and my house vac blowing out from inside. It finally broke free and now my dryer works like new.

How do I remove the panel to get into the inside of the dryer on the maytag atlantis MDG8400AWW

To remove the front open the door and remove the screws from the door hinge,then remove the screws from the other side as if the door were mounted to that side. Place a putty knife in the seam between the front panel and the cabinet at the upper corners of the front panel and pop the panel off from the retainer clips that are mounted to teh cabinet the top of the panel will become free so ya can pull it off from their.

Stoped working

1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power with a voltmeter or by plugging something else in. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

2. Door switch / Door switch actuator lever
The dryer would not start with a broken door switch. Replace the door switch if found defective.

Most dryers have a door switch actuator lever - when you close a dryer door, it presses against the lever, which actuates the door switch. If the lever is broken, the switch would not activate and the dryer would not start. Replace the lever, if broken.

Note: Door switch actuator lever usually comes with the door switch assembly and it is recommended to get the whole assembly since there is almost no price difference between the door switch assembly and just the lever.

My dryer squeeks when running

Hi, I've had a similar problem (I think) on my MDG7400 dryer. There was a cyclical squeak, metal against metal. It turned out to be the screw that holds the drum paddle to the drum. It had worked itself loose and was scraping against the inside wall of the dryer. Remove the front door lift the top, and tighten 'er up. Hope that helps.
