The spark ignitor maybe at fault. Listen for the clicking noise upon starting it up the first 30 seconds it runs. If not heard it is in need of a replacement

The dryer doesn't consistently heat clothes... at times you can feel the heat and then others its just cool air coming out the vent outside... this is on the regular setting not sensor drying.... a load of clothes takes 8 hours to dry

Clean the exhaust duct. The ENTIRE duct, from where it attaches to the dryer to where it exits the house... Failure to dry clothing when you have heat is an air-flow issue

The timer keeps readjusting while drying clothes, will say there is 45 minutes left and clothes are perfectly dry, this could be a fire hazard if left unattended.


you will need to clean the vent tube/internal duct work:

The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a pre-set temperature then the thermostat tells the timer to begin advancing. The timer advances until the interior cools, then the thermostat tells the timer to stop advancing, and tells the dryer to start heating again.

if the vent/duct work is clogged then the
dryer may never reach the proper operating temperature, so it doesn't send the signal to the timer and the dryer continues to run indefinitely, even if the clothes are completely dry.

I hope this helps here is a website on how to remove cabinet:

Slow to dry


Hi!!

Have you cleaned the filter and the exhaust duct??

Lint plugs therm up, the heat sensor shuts off heating element thinking it is hot enough. Result: Clothes not getting dry.

Unplug duct and clean it, also clean the exahust passage of dryer. (where duct hooks to dryer)

I have a gas dryer. Dryer heats up but doesn't dry clothes completely all the time. Sometimes I have to run it 2 -3 times. What do i need to replace? Maytag Performa Model # PYG2000AWW REV. 10 Serial #...


I got cut short.. and disconnected...so if this is a repeat, please forgive me:
Dryers 101
1. Heat alone does not dry clothes
2. Air alone does not dry clothes.
3. Only dry, heated air passing over and through clothes will dry them...

I recommend the following:
Set the dryer for "Air Dry".
Go outside and check the dryer exhaust.
Confirm that the exhaust is spewing out lots of air.

If it is, then you have a need for a technician to inspect everything - in person.

If it is NOT, the you need to determine the clog - or reason that air is not moving through your dryer, clothes and exhaust system.

ONLY 2 possibilities exist:
1. Fan motor is frozen and needs replacement....or
2. Duct/exhaust is clogged with lint and will not allow air to pass through.

Please check for both, clean/clear/fix as needed.

Our dryer takes multiple cycles to get clothes dry. Eventually the clothes dry, but it takes forever.


If your dryer is taking more than an hour, check these. Vent Frequently there's an obstruction in the vent duct from the dryer to the outside of the house. For the dryer to heat properly, the duct must be clean and clear of lint or any other substance. Heating element Your dryer's heating element may be partially burned out. If it is, your dryer still heats, but at such a low temperature that it takes three or four times as long to dry the clothes. If the element is partially burned out, replace it. Internal ductwork Your dryer has some internal ductwork. If it gets clogged, your dryer can't dry properly. In most dryers, to get to the internal ductwork to clear the clog, you have to substantially disassemble the dryer. A quick way to check for internal clogs is to remove the lint filter and use a flashlight to inspect the inside of the duct. If it looks clogged and you can't clear it using your vacuum, contact a qualified appliance repair technician. Cycling thermostat Although this isn't a common problem, one of the thermostats that controls the temperature in your dryer may break and cause the dryer to heat poorly. If so, you need to replace it. The thermostat is usually a small, round, black device mounted to an oblong steel plate. The plate is mounted to the internal ductwork with two screws. It overheats Usually when an electric dryer overheats it's because of a defective cycling thermostat or a clogged vent system. Clean any lint from the internal and external ductwork, and/or replace the cycling thermostat (read about cycling thermostats in "Drying is too slow," above). It seems to run forever If your dryer seems to run forever, it could be because of a clogged vent or internal ductwork. Your dryer may have an automatic cycle that turns off the dryer when the clothes are dry. It does this with a special thermostat or moisture-sensing system. Normally, this is what happens during an automatic cycle: The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a pre-set temperature--say 135 degrees. When the dryer reaches the pre-set temperature, the thermostat tells the timer to begin advancing. (If there's a moisture sensor, the timer advances only if the moisture content of the clothing is low enough.) The timer advances until the interior cools, then the thermostat tells the timer to stop advancing, and tells the dryer to start heating again. This cycle continues until the clothes are dry. But?if the vent is clogged, the dryer may never reach the proper operating temperature, so it doesn't send the signal to the timer and the dryer continues to run indefinitely, even if the clothes are completely dry. To fix the problem, clean the vent and/or internal ductwork
