I hope you got this fixed by now but if not I'll put in my 2 cents.. I assume that your dryer is electric and not gas. Assuming that is true then you probably have an open heater element.. similar to this used in electric stoves... There may also be other components that could have failed and in so doing, disabled power to that element. Could be a contactor or temp switch/thermistor.. Hope this helps and that you've already solved the problem...

I have a stackable washer/dryer gas maytag. Purchased around 17 years ago. The dryer is not drying clothes. Gas is powered fine and it is heating up. The cycle seems shorter than normal


Hello,
The problem with it not drying is most likely going to be a worn out blower wheel thats slipping and not moving the warm air through the clothes to dry them properly. Always a pretty good sign the blower is slipping is,if you hear a rumble noise from the dryer at start up and also that same rumbling noise when the power stops. So if you hear it at start up...wait 30 seconds and open the door and listen for the rumble noise as drum stops. also you can check where the vent exits the house and see if their is air flow when the dryer is running.

It takes a long time to dry a load of clothes


sounds as if you may have an issue with a blocked/clogged ventin, perhaps wher it leaves the home, a unit that is not able to expell the heat will tend to not dry the clothes properly, 2-3x to dry a good sign of venting issue

FEX831CSO dryer stopped heating mid-cycle


Apr 22, 2010 My dryer would not dry the clothes either. the heating element would only come on once then nothing. The high limit thermostat was bad. Pull the electrical plug. Remove the top cover and the thermostat has an orange/black wire to it. It is hard to get to the screws but I was able. Then I found the element would cycle many times but not stay on long enough to dry the clothes thoroughly - I found the culprit - the motor driven fan creats a suctionin the drum and the hot air from the rear coil is pulled thru the drum, thru the front door (via the holes in the door's inner face) down thru the lint screen, thru the outer fan housing and out the exhaust. My problem was that the door's cardboard backing had seperated and along with the trapped lint clogged the door's holes and restricted the air flow. I took the door off, seperated the 2 halves, removed the cardboard and cleaned the lint out. The dryer is now working like new. Summary: The high limit thermostat was bad probably from cycling so much and the air flow diminished slowly over time to the point I did not notice until the clothes just wouldn't dry. Check the air flow first. Hope this helps

I had a similar problem, My washer spun but the clothes were still soaked with water. We replaced the inertia switch. That solved it.

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.
