SOURCE: maytag dryer not blowing hot air (2yrs old)

If the vent is blocked, it will not stop the heat, it will only restrict the air flow.

Generally a couple of things can cause the heat to stop.
Either the thermostat or the element.
I would first suggest the element.
It may be fatigued therefore the internal wire within the element becomes fragile and eventually breaks down. Although it is an electrical item, it is mechanically built and can fail.

In some dryers the element is held in clips.
These clips can cut into the element.

The thermostat maintains temeperature but again, it is mechanically built and can also break down.

If you are not capable of inspecting or troubleshooting the internals of the dryer (i.e remove the cover and look for the failurer), then have it inspected by a repairman. There is not too much that can go wrong with a dryer. The most expensive part wuld be the motor that spins the drum.

SOURCE: Dryer will not blow hot air

first, check the entire exhaust pipe, most of the time the problem is there. every inch must be free of lint. to take apart most dryers: 2 screws hold on the bottom front panel. those screws are near the floor on the front. once that panel is off, you should see 2 more screws, this allows you to remove the main front panel (the one that holds the door) with that off, there should be 4 screws holding the front drum support on. with that off, you should be able to carefully remove the drum after removing the belt from the motor. to get the belt off, you have to reach in from the bottom and push the tensioner and slip the belt off the motor.
good luck!

Blowing cold air


This model dryer has two heating elements, one for the top and one for the bottom, I suspect that the bottom element is burned out. If you want to attempt it yourself then I can send you a service manual that will walk you step by step through the whole dryer.
