Sounds like the drive belt is either broken or slipped off of the drive pulley. You will need to ope it up and check. If that is the case, a new belt (ordered from Maytag) will get it working again. Most dryers are opened by removing the entire front panel, door and all. Once that's removed, you should see the drum, and below it somewhere, an electric motor. There should be a belt going from that motor around the entire drum. If that's not there, you need a new belt.

SOURCE: no heat after a minute of drying

Hi. i would recommend checking all component's below for faults. replace any that are defective or damaged.


1. Gas valve coils
igniter glows, then shuts off without igniting gas - the problem is probably with defective coils (black, located on top of the gas valve). It is recommended to replace all coils (usually two or three) if found defective.

Note: Sometimes the whole gas valve may be defective, thus not letting the gas out. However, this problem is not common.

2. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.

3. igniter
igniter may burn out or break. Replace the igniter if found defective.

Note: Igniters are very fragile and break easily. It is recommended to handle the igniter only touching the ceramic part of it (usually white in color).

4. Flame sensor (or radiant heat sensor)
Replace the sensor (located near the igniter) if found defective.

SOURCE: no heat to a gas dryer

Sounds like the problem is the solenoid coils on your gas valve. easy to replace and inexpensive + common. their are 2 coils on the valve that have 2 wires each going to them. Let me know if you have any other questions,

Maytag dryer does not heat.


If the dryer comes on but doesn't heat, it is probably the heating element. If the dryer doesn't come on at all, it most likely is the dryer's motor.

Heat Element is working and drum spins, but no air is blowing?


First make sure that the dryer is vented properly, then check the blower wheel. A common problem is for the center of the blower wheel to get rounded out through wear and tear, allowing the blower wheel to spin on the shaft, thus not spinning at the same speed as the motor. I will attach a photo for reference. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

The dryer will not heat up to dry clothes


youve probably got a bad heating element, also make sure air is blowing out back of dryer to the outside of house if its plugged it will cause element to break good luck

Maytag performa runs no heat how do I access the heating element?


Well if it runs then the fuse is ok so what you need to do is pop the top and check the high limit thermostst and heating element located at the rear of the machine. The top on most of these machines comes up easilty if you use a putty knife or five in one. Be sure to disconect the power source. a12fee1.jpg
