Question about Maytag MDG7600AW Gas Dryer
You could have a bad blower wheel.remove the vent line from the back of the dryer and start it,if you don't feel air blowing out of the back a good flow of air check the blower wheel. open the door,remove the two phillips screws that hold the door on and then remove the other two screws on the other side,you can leave the door on,now grab the top of the frame on the left and right side and pull the panel forwards,then tilt it forwards and slide it off of the bottom tabs, close the door and start the dryer,usually if the blower wheel is damaged you'll hear it banging around as it starts to spin,to get at it unplug the dryer,then ther are four 5/16 inch screws that hold the bulkhead on,the bottom two come out and if you look at where the screws go in you'll notice a cutout,the shorter screws go into the cutouts and the longer screws don't,when you remove the bulkhead you'll see the blower wheel,grab it and move it around,it should be tight,if it moves you'll know it's bad,remove the 1/4 inch screws and then the 5/16 inch screw to remove the cover,with a pair of plyers remove the clip and pull off the blower wheel,part 33002797 and it's around 25 dollars.this is if the wheel is bad,if air blows out the back then you have a blocked vent line,if it's a long run you can use a leaf blower to blow out the line,you should do this once a year to keep the line clear anyway and clean out the dryer,clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into and vac out the cabinet where the motor is.let me know how you made out.
