Hi, it sounds like you have covered most bases. One other thing I would check is total airflow. Outside, where the dryer exhaust leaves the building it should be unobstructed, If there is a flap or louvers they should open freely. You should be able to feel the warm air when you put your hand at the vent. If aiflow is good, the thermostat may be defective.

Takes about 4 hours to dry any load. Have tried different settings. Husband cleaned lint traps, hoses, etc. Gas turns on and shuts off about every couple of minutes. Any ideasa?


Most likely problem is the exhaust is plugged. Lint build up and eventually restricted the humid exhaust air.

To test for this locate the exhaust vent where it exits the house. With the dryer running feel for the air flow. It should be similar to the flow you feel from hair dryer.

Second test is to light load the dryer setting the heat to high and after several minutes of operation open the door and confirm the clothes are hot to the touch.

Hot clothes and no air flow for ever to dry!!

  1. Remove hose from wall connection. Confirm vent hose not plugged by running dryer. Very dusty process. If no air step 2.
  2. Remove vent hose from back of dryer. Confirm air flow from dryer. Very dusty process. No air step 3.
  3. Service dryer blower likely plugged with lint. If dryer basket turns I would assume blower is also turning connected by drive belt. The blockage internal to dryer.
  4. So if not 1,2 or 3 than blocked vent hose to the outside . Suggest using a vacuum hose to carefully try to retrieve lint build up. Lets hope that it is not a roof vent because it would really suck trying to pull the blockage out. And unless your Santa roof tops are dangerous places to play.
  5. Well at least at this point we know why the clothes are not getting dry. What ever you do do not breach the venting in the walls. Moisture will build up along with the lint and create havic with mold!!!
  6. Call your husband

Dryer shuts off before the finish of the cycle. Clothes are not all the way dry.


If the dryer is on a timed-cycle dry, and the heat is too low and/or the air supply is restricted, the machine will shut off before everything is dry. If running on auto-sense dry, the exit air temperature sensor is shutting the machine off too soon or the air passing through the clothes is restricted somewhere and therefore getting too hot which shuts the machine off too soon. The primary suspect for air flow restriction is lint accumulation in the vents and/or the lint trap is plugged with fabric softener deposits--wash it in detergent and hot water. Hope this helps.

Dryer does not get hot enough to dry clothes Roper REX4634KQ1 Electric Dryer


The vent may be stopped up, or the vent hose crimped so the air cannot escape, you can check the air flow at the vent on the outside of the house while the dryer is running.
try cleaning the vent and the lint screen with a vacuum cleaner, you may need to replace the vent hose, this should solve the problem

Dryer not heating as it should. Gets warm, but takes several cycles to dry clothes


Could be 2 things... either your heat source is out of repair or your vent is blocked. Since you say it only gets warm I'll assume the problem is with the gas coils inside the unit. These parts are replaceable

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.
