What does my Maytag Bravos 300 quite series electric dryer take so long to dry clothes?

Those sensor bars can become faulty and that is probably the problem. Try cleaning them off with a clean rag. Good Luck!

Why would my dryer not be heating?

Most likely the heating element. But look for blockages that could cause safety's to trip before purchasing expensive heating elements is what I always say. To prevent fires dryers have a series of limits wired into the harness to shut down the element in case the dryer over heats. Maytag blowers are made of plastic and often are a cause of overheating. The clothes take much longer to dry if a blower wheel is to blame, so check that too. themobilian_94.jpgthemobilian_95.jpgthemobilian_96.jpgthemobilian_97.jpgGive me your model number and I will be more specific. Not all maytags are the same.

tif it is most likley the element has gone bad they usually cost about 45 dollars and if you can find a friend to help you replace it its not that hard best bet is to call a used appliance store they usually have them new and in stock do not try going to the manufacture they will charge you double for the same exact part

Brand new Maytag Centennial electric dryer does not dry clothes!

It may have shipping damage, such as a loose or broken connection or heating element.

But if it's brand new, it's under warranty, and they will fix it free.

My Maytag Model DE410, Series 01, Serial 197938 - won't dry I think the heating element is out. The clothes aren't dry at all - it is on normal dry, but the clothes come out like it's on air dry - not...

Heating element is bad! I have the same exact problem. I Just finished pulling the heater out 20 minutes ago. I ohmed it before I pulled it(showed to be bad) and after I pulled it I found the break in the heating element.

Pull bottom of panel out and the top will pop out. 5x16 inch diameter tube inside on the bottom right is the heater assembley pull the three screws in front and one in back that hold the assembley inside dryer. Unwire two wires feeding assembley. Your done! Only takes about 15 Minutes, Tops!
Lowes Warehouse carrys it. 1-800-476-8160 Part# Y313538 Price $51.71 Ship $7.99 Open 8am to Midnight
Hope you can do this yourself and save yourself some money! Good Luck!

Dryer runs but does not dry my cloths.

Hello, If the dryer appears to be running ok but will not heat you probably have a bad heating element or switch. Usually the heating element.
I hope this helps

Maytag haevy duty stack washer dryer unit model # SE1000 series 06

I hope you got this fixed by now but if not I'll put in my 2 cents.. I assume that your dryer is electric and not gas. Assuming that is true then you probably have an open heater element.. similar to this used in electric stoves... There may also be other components that could have failed and in so doing, disabled power to that element. Could be a contactor or temp switch/thermistor.. Hope this helps and that you've already solved the problem...

Maytag dryer thermostat

Not 100% about this model, but the stat is located next to the fan.
Remove the front cover - insert a flat blade between the lid and front panel approx 4" in from each side to release the clips, lift the lid, remove the front panel (2 screws) fan and stat at the bottom, rest is straight forward.
