Sounds like something is jamming it up, maybe a drum roller or something fell inside the lint filter compartment. could also be a failing belt. more info would help

Maytag mod. #med5700tq0 elec. dryer runs, inconsistent heat, high heat two days ago, little heat a few hours ago, some heat an hour ago, no heat now. Where is the best place to start?


It sounds clogged up to me. Take the exhaust hose off the wall and try it first. Another thing that happens with Maytags is that the motor shaft will **** out the center of the plastic blower and even though the motor is turning, little or no air is moving through the machine, so the high limit thermo turns the heat off

My dryer wont start at all...


Did you check the door switch. If it is open (not making contact) the machine will not run. Could be the motor start/run switch which could be stuck with lint (clean it) or worn out ( replace the motor).
