Of course you did clean out the dryer thoroughly. The only thing controlling the heat is the nice air flow to the outdoors and the control thermostat mounted in front of the blower housing. So we must clear any air restrictions to outside and replace that control (303396) (mainly because it has been worked to death by that faulty blower wheel and the bi-metal inside is fatigued):
You might need to also check the high limit thermostat. (it also may need to be replaced due to the stress associated from a bad blower wheel and overheating) Ok if all of that is fine and you still are experiencing long drying times then you could have a timer problem or an electrical problem. Lets talk about the timer, as you can see in the picture below, the contact gets burred up and won't allow good electrical flow, simply filing that smooth can make a world of difference but getting the timer back together is a chore. Removing the shank retainer from the timer shaft and trying not to disturb the wheel within helps tremendously. Lets talk circuit breaker. As you can see in the photo below, one side of the breaker carry's the electrical load and wears out faster. The motor runs on 120 volts on the unharmed side. The heater side carry's the heavy amp draw. So you can be fooled into thinking the breaker is good when the heater side has troubles. That's all the smart pills I have on these dryers. I know these dryers inside and out because I worked for a Maytag dealer for many years.maytag dryer ide9606ace runs heats up takes long - f18a09b.jpgf863e9d.jpg

I have a maytag dryer DE882. The dryer blows warm air but does not dry clothes. Any ideas what could be the problem.


This caused by one of two possible things. Either you have poor air flow, or a clogged vent preventing air from flowing freely and therefor making the dryer short cycle, which in turn will take you two or three times to dry yor clothes, or the heating element has gone bad, burnt in half and is making contact with the case to provide it just enough power to barely heat. The second thing is a very rare occurance. I would turn the dryer on, find out where the air vents out to, and with the dryer running, go to where it vents and check to see if there is a strong flow of air. 9 times out of 10 that is going to be your problem. Another way to check air flow is to just pull the vent off the back and let the dryer run and see if your clothes dry faster. If you do it that way and they still take a long time to dry, then you'll probably need to replace the heating element

The dry will not start the display or dig. Controls wont engage anything the start button keeps flashing was just working great


Bad Heating Element
Most clothing dryers heat up and dry clothes with a heating element inside the appliance's body. Maytag dryers are no different and sometimes these heating elements break down or burn out, making the dryer cease to get hot. Make sure the dryer is unplugged and the breakers that run the dryer are switched off before inspecting so you don't electrocute yourself. The heating element is in the bottom panel of the dryer and is often a silver part which heats up when the dryer is on. Sometimes the heating element will be cracked or burned out, which means it is broken. Other times it won't look damaged but may not be working. Replace the heating element if this occurs, to see if this is the main problem.
Broken Motor
Maytag dryers have motors which turn the dryer drum, tossing the clothes so that air and heat can help dry them out completely. When the dryer drum is not turning it means there is something wrong with the motor or that the motor is not getting power. Unplug the dryer and take it apart to inspect the motor. Once you have found the motor, plug the dryer back in and use a meter to see if the motor is getting power. If it is, and isn't working, then there is something wrong with the motor and how it is operating. If the motor isn't getting power, then there is something wrong with the circuits or fuses which disperse power to the motor itself.
Bad Switch
When Maytag dryers won't tumble or heat the clothes which have been put inside of them, this means there could be a number of different things wrong. However, sometimes there's a simple solution to this problem: The switch on the door of the dryer itself may be faulty or not making the electric connection it should to allow the dryer to run. This is a cheap fix and worth troubleshooting before tearing your Maytag dryer apart. Remove the switch and inspect the two leads to make sure they haven't broken or are still transferring electricity. If they aren't you will have to replace the switch

Bought used - want to prevent rusting of water trough and other


If you can get to the whole water trough to coat it, I recommend you get some spray undercoating or a product like "Phil Swift" promotes on TV and spray it on the affected area.

The squirl cage on the dryer of my model LSE7806


Howdy,

Absolutely should be positively "locked" to the motor shaft. There should be a set screw in the collar of the squirrel cage mount. Either it is missing of has loosened. Please tighten (or replace) this set screw. Also, it is very IMPORTANT to make sure that if there is a flat machined surface on the motor shaft, that you align the squirrel cage (and set screw) so that the set screw will seat firmly and squarely against this flat surface. This design ensures that once properly aligned and set, that the squirrel cage will follow the motor shaft faithfully. Also, it is recommmended to apply some thread sealant (Locktite) to the threads of the set screw so this will not happen in the future. Vibration can be the cause of this.

Good luck,

Water on the squiral cage side I don't know where its coming from


I don't know exactly what you mean by getting water on the dry side of the compartment. In any event, as you will see, there are very few sites that are dedicated to the maintenance and repair of evaporative coolers--you, in fact, submitted this problem of yours under the Air Conditioner section because there is no Evaporative Cooler section.

Having said this, I offer you two things: 1) a site that has a section dedicated to evaporative coolers, which took me a long time to find for my own problems:

http://yourhandymanzone.com/Your_Handyman_Zone_How_To_Pages_Home_Improvement_Zone_Cooling_Ventilation_Systems_Coolers.htm

and 2) the general idea that if you have water where it is not supposed to be, it likely is because there is a hole---obviously caused by rust--that allowed such water to get penetrated through. See more on rust holes of coolers here:
http://yourhandymanzone.com/Your_Handyman_Zone_How_To_Pages_Home_Improvement_Zone_Cooling_Ventilation_Systems_Coolers_Cooler_Has_Holes.htm

This should help get you on your way.

Good luck!

IT TAKES A COUPLE OF CYCLES BEFORE CLOTHES DRY AND THERE'S A NOISE AS THE DRYER IS RUNNING. WE HAVE CHECKED THE LINT LINE.


It's possible that the blower fan is bad, which would also account for the noise. It's usually just a plastic squirl cage mounted on the end of the drum motor shaft. It can crack and break off of the shaft and just be rattling around on the shaft, moving very little air. They're usually cheap and easy to replace.

Hope that helped
