Question about Maytag Dryers
Excessive drying time can be caused by a number of things.
Is the vent clear of obstructions? If not then the vent and ducting will have to be cleaned. This ch be checked by removing the vent hos from the back of the machine and testing the dry time with a small load of a couple of towels.
Is the temperature hot inside of the dryer? If not then the heating element may have a problem.
Is the washer spinning most of the water out of the clothes? If not then the dryer is overworking to remove the water.
Is the dryer fairly old or was it a "scratch and dent" floor model? Then there may not be an adequate seal around the dryer drum and a lot of drying potential is lost.
Is there lint build up in the blower or is the blower not spinning? This cause the air to not circulate. It can be checked by removing the rear duct hose and running the machine.
