Question about Maytag Neptune MDE5500AY Electric Dryer
You need to clean out the dryer,you should do this once a year so you don't have a lint fire and so this doesn't happen again,your lucky you didn't damage any parts,the dryer runs hotter than normal like this,take off the vent line,if it's a long run from the dryer to the outside i use a leaf blower to blow all the lint out of the line,make sure nothing is blocking the outside vent,now you gotta clean out the duct that's below the lint filter,if you have a shop vac it blows on the other end,i take the dryer apart when i do a clean out but you can blow the lint out,stick the nozzle in the left side and the lint will blow up and out on the right side,if you have a brush for cleaning out dryers you can stick that down in there and pull some of the lint out like that,you should take the front panel off and vac out the inside where the motor is also,blow the lint forward with the shop vac so you don't have to pull the drum out,sounds like alot of work but it isn't and your dryer will last longer,unplug the dryer,open the door and take the four screws out to take the front panel off, 2 in the door and the other 2 opposite the door screws remove the door and pull the front off

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have not taken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then you need to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should take place. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causes for your dryer to fail.
