How do you wire the dryer MDE300AYW


Instructions
    • 1 Remove the lint screen from the dryer. If you are unsure how to remove the lint trap, refer to your owner's manual, as removal directions vary among Maytag models.
    • 2 Use your fingers to remove large chunks of lint from the lint screen. You should remove the lint from the lint trap after every load.
    • 3 Run the lint screen under the faucet. Use hot water and thoroughly wet down both sides.
    • 4 Scrub both sides of the lint screen with a wet nylon scrub brush. Rinse the screen again under hot water to remove loosened buildup. Allow the lint screen to air-dry on a towel before putting it back inside of the dryer.
    • 5 Make a paste of powdered laundry soap and warm water into a small bowl. Use three parts powdered detergent to one part water. Stir with a spoon until a paste forms.
    • 6 Dip a soft rag into the paste. Wipe down the entire interior of the dirty Maytag dryer with the rag and paste. Apply more paste to the cloth as needed.
    • 7 Rinse the interior of the dryer with a damp rag to remove the paste.
    • 8 Dry a load of damp towels in the Maytag dryer. Run a complete dry cycle to remove any residue left inside.
    • 9 Wipe down the exterior of the dryer with a rag moistened with all-purpose household cleaner. You can also use the household cleaner to remove certain stains from the interior of the dryer. Make sure the cleaner you are using is noninflammable.

Dryer does not dry well , an the turn knob does not turn while the dryer is on towards turnning off.


Lint Trap

The lint trap is a metal screen with a plastic handle that is located either near the corner at the top of your dryer, or inside the dryer door. In most cases, the lint trap is clearly marked. If your clothes are not drying properly, this is the first place to look because it is the easiest problem to solve. Remove the lint from your lint trap, and then see if your clothes get dry. If they do not, move to the next troubleshooting problem.
Vent Hose

To work properly, a dryer needs to be able to vent warm air. If the vent hose is clogged, bent or has a hole in it, your dryer will not work properly. Examine the vent hose to see if it is installed completely over the dryer exhaust vent, and to make sure it does not have a hole in it. Remove the vent hose to see if it is clogged. There are vent hose brushes you can purchase to clean the vent hose properly. Also check the exhaust vent on the dryer and the outside vent to make sure they are not clogged.

Thermal Fuse

If you have been running your dryer with a clogged vent hose for a while, you may burn out the thermal fuse. A burnt thermal fuse will allow the dryer drum to rotate, but the unit will not heat up. Your owner's manual will show you where the thermal fuse is and provide the part number you need to buy to replace it. Thermal fuses are available at most hardware stores and are easy to replace.
Heating Element

The heating element is the long, coiled wire in the dryer that heats up the air. Over time, the heating element can burn out or become defective. In some models, the heating element can be repaired; in other models, the heating element should be replaced. Refer to your user's manual to see where your heating element is and whether you can repair it or need to replace it.

Dryer will not heat up


A clothes dryer can go for years without any problems. We come to rely on our clothes dryer, and we can even begin to take it for granted. Then one day we attempt to use our clothes dryer and it has no heat to it. Now we have entered the world of clothes dryer repair, and it is a world that can get expensive. Before you call out the repairman, try some troubleshooting tips to see if you can get the heat flowing back to your dryer again.

    Lint One of the easiest fixes for a dryer that will not heat up is cleaning out the lint trap and cleaning out the lint from the dryer exhaust. The lint trap should be cleaned out before each usage. Not only does cleaning the lint trap prevent the possibility of a fire, but a lint trap that is filled beyond capacity will cause the dryer to not heat up. If the lint trap is clean, then inspect the exhaust hose and vent next. If the exhaust hose and vent are cluttered up with lint, then the dryer will not generate heat. You can use your hand to clean out the vent, and broom handle to clean out the vent duct in your house. The flexible hose can be detached and cleaned by hand as well. Thermal Fuse A dryer will run on for a very long time, and when the thermal fuse gives up then there will be no more heat. Finding and replacing the thermal fuse is not difficult, but in order to do it you will need the manual for your dryer. Each dryer model is different as far as how to open up the cabinet, and locate the thermal fuse. You may need to purchase the thermal fuse online from the manufacturer, or you may be able to get a universal fuse that fits your dryer from an appliance repair store. Contact the manufacturer of your dryer to see what kind of thermal fuse they recommend. Thermal fuses cannot be repaired, they must be replaced. In most cases it is easy to tell if your thermal fuse needs replacing as you will see the center of it is burned out. Heating Element Another main culprit to a dryer not heating up is the heating element. According to Repair Clinic.com, the heating element is a coil found in the back of the dryer that the dryer uses to create heat. The only way to tell if a heating element is bad is to check the consistency of the current it generates with an ohm meter. If you are unfamiliar with how to do this, you can either replace the heating element and assume it is faulty, or you can have a repair professional test your heating element for you.please comment on these solution by say how helpful.by rate or vote

F @ P DEGX2 lint trap problem


If you are collecting more on the outside of the house means the lint filter has a tear in it and the lint in being pulled through the tear and pushed out the exhaust. It sounds like you need a new filter but this isn't cheap. If you do it your self it will run about $70 if you get a repair man it will cost about $150.

Individual package of detergent fell into lint trap of Whirlpool


HI, You should remove it. Here is how Normal 0 UNPLUG the dryer! Remove the two screws under the lint screen and pop the top up by inserting a flat blade screw driver in the gap between the front panel and the top. Remove the rear panel of the dryer and locate the four 5/16" screws that hold the lint screen housing to the bulk head. Pull the lint screen housing away from the bulkhead and reach in to remove the item that fell.
Please let me know if this help or if I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

Lint is not going into pull out lint trap. The lint screen is torn and lint is collecting behind trap.


Poor air flow would be my guess. How long is the vent hose? Does it have more than one angle/turn before venting outside? Is the lint gathering around the outer edges of the door? Keeping the length of air travel shorter will improve the operation.

Frigidaire dryer, lots of lint getting past screen.


Hello,
Here is a link to an exploded view and parts list for your dryer. http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/model-display.php
If you are certain that the filter is not compromised or damaged and is properly seated into the housing , you may have a problem with the housing itself whereby lint is getting into the blower thru a break in that housing.. I would examine that area for damage.. and make sure when you reinsert the filter, it is seated all the way down.. Hope this helps you... BTW: over time, it is not unusual for lint to build up in the duct since some of that lint is smaller than the filter media and will work its way thru.. If you are getting that degree of lint build up very quickly then you may have a problem as mentioned above..
Regards,
Rick
