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

Not getting hot


  1. 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.

    The dryer doesnt get hot enough to dry clothes


    Pull the dryer out and remove the lint hose . Turn on the dryer and feel if there is good air flow and if you feel heat . If there is good air flow and heat , dry a load of clothes , to see if they dry normally .
    If there is not good air flow , then the blower wheel is probably stripped and needs to be replaced . If there is good air flow and heat , then the problem is in the vent ducting , between the dryer and to where it vents to the outside . Dryer could be pushed back too far , causing the hose to " kink " , restricting the air flow to the outside .
    Remember , a dryer either heats or doesn't heat . If no heat , then a dryer problem exists . If heat , but dryer does not dry , then a vent problem is the cause ( except for maytag , which the blower wheel sometimes strips out ) .

    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.

    Maytag atlantis gas dryer, will start, heat up but then no heat


    Try running it with the vent disconnected and feel the air coming out of the dryer. It should have good flow. If it dries good, your pipe may be clogged.

    Maytag dryer not heating up thus not drying clothes


    This is usually a simple heating coil malfunction. The coil may have breaks in it causing it not to work. It could also have something to do with 1 of several heating sensors that may be broken, telling the dryer's heating coil that the dryer is too hot, in effect turning off the heating coil. If your dryer has a round lint filter in the rear of the drum, it was 1 of 2 models of Dependable care dryers produced in the 1970's. If this is the case, i supose it would be up to you whether you want to try and get it repaired or not. If you have one of the more recent models,,, the lint filter is directly behind the door, at the front of the drum. and in this case it would probably be a good idea to get it looked at it as Maytag is a relatively dependable brand.

    Dryer goes with 3-4 cycles to dry load of clothes


    unplug the dryer.
    Open the top lid.
    Remove the front panel.
    Inspect the blower wheel attached to the motor.
    If it moves on the motor shaft replace it.
    If iy does not move on the motor shaft, clean the lint out of the exhaust from the blower wheel to the rear of the dryer.

    Maytag Neptune W/D (Stacked) Drying Irregularly


    Mj, 90% of the time long dry times are caused by a pinched or clogged vent. Other things that could be causing this are: cycling thermostat trips too soon, if your dryer is a gas model, weak gas valve coils, drive motor centrifugal switch not allowing voltage to the gas valve or heating element. Check the harness to the motor to make sure it is on tight. Catriver...post back.
