Hello there:
If there is no heat or heat sometimes please try these solutions
Heating element Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable. Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.) Wiring A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

  • There are a number of different problems which can occur with models of Maytag dryers resulting in them not heating and drying clothes properly. A variety of parts could have broken or been worn out over the course of the time you have been using your dryer or something could just malfunction, as appliances tend to do from time to time. Check warranty information before trying to repair the Maytag dryer yourself.
  • 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.

    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.

    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
