I would check that you dont have it on the automatic cycle that uses a sensor to know when to shut off. If it is on that cycle it may be set to loow or the sensor could be broken.

The dryer is not heating up. Just blowing air. What do I do?

Gas dryers CLICK when the glowbar warms up the flame sensor to the point that the bimetal inside it bends. This insures the flame is lit. The flames stays on just long enough to warm the drum up to 160f. (for cotton) at which time the flame is shut down until the temp inside the drum drops to 105f when another blast of heat is applied by the control thermostat. If you hear the clicking then the ignitor is glowing AND the flame sensor is shutting it down. That means the thermal limit and control t-stat mounted on the blower housing is working. If that is the case then the coils are bad. Replace them.

Kenmore 70 series dryer won't dry

If the dryer is heating any at all you have a blocked or restricted exhaust problem. Is it not drying with little amount of warm air or is the air cool.

Maytag electric dryer keeps shutting off.Dryer gets hot. Repairman replaced the motor but still having the same problem.Could it be a sensor?

Generally if the motor shuts off it is because of the overprotector on the motor opening up to save the motor.When the motor cools down the overload will close and the motor will work again.

If the unit is getting so warm the motor is shutting off check to make sure the rollers are working properly and moving freely.

Maytag dryer wont shut off

Is it an auto sensor shut off? If so, it may be that your hose is plugged and so actually takes that long to dry the clothes.
