Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable. On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)

My maytag gas dryer work on dry cloth and stays hot but as soon as i put wet cloths in it they wont dry ?


My dryers timer wouldn't work correctly and the clothes were taking forever to dry. I decided to check the vent. My advice....Always check your dryer vent before spending any money on unnecessary parts or service calls. This Nest was pulled out of my vent with my shop vac sucking out and my house vac blowing out from inside. It finally broke free and now my dryer works like new.

What is automatic dry miser


Hello,
What the automatic dry miser is, is a sensor that measure how dry the clothes are and will adjust the time its going to take to dry the clothes throughout the entire cycle. If at the beginning it estimate it will take 40 minutes to sry a load but they are dry in only 25 minutes the dryer knows the clothes are dry and cuts the dryer off. Saving 15 minutes of unneeded gas and electric that it would run and waste power and gas since the clothes were dry already.

I've got a fridgedaire gallery gas dryer, approx 8 years old. Takes too long to dry clothes. I've cleaned inside as best I could and the dryer duct. Is seems to get hot some of the time, but not constant


if you use fabric softener. i recommend you slow it down...alot. an appliance guys nightmare is just that. inside fabric softener, is wax. your lint screen may look clean. but run it under hot water. ive come across many a lint screen where the water will simply not go through the screen, even though it appears to be sparkly clean.

Maytag Neptune MDG 5500 AWQ heats sporatically


your dryer has a safety feature that it will not run or heat when the door is opened. It is so no gas fumes are exhauseted into your home. Once the safety is engaged, It will not allow the dryer to restart for a short while. It should clear itself after only a few minutes. Hope this helps, good luck.
