Goodmorning, I have a Maytag Dryer Model No. LDE9304ADE. It's been working until recently it leeks water from underneath, I verified the air vent outside but no air is coming out. The machine let's out a burnt scent and gets hot on the top of the machine

Hi there!

I had the same problem on the same model of dryer. I am guessing this solution will be too late for you (post from 2008) but I found a solution to mine so will post for the future of anyone looking for it!

With no ventilation coming out, the dryer draws the moisture away and it will pool under the machine, as well the top will get hot.

In my case, the blower wheel needed to be replaced, and it solved both the heat/pooling water problems! (As well as dried the clothes faster! :)

Hope this is helpful to someone!

I recommend having a professional check on this. it sounds like the exhaust duct inside the machine is broken or leaking heavily. the buildup of dryer lint inside the machine could be a major fire hazard if not fixed. make sure the repair person also cleans out the inside of the dryer after making the repairs.

Maytag model #: med5770tq0 won't dry. Please help


Dear Emily.
Several problems.
First, did this dryer ever work properly hooked up as it is?
I mean hooked to the roof event?
If it used to work just fine, then I suspect the vent to the roof is clogged with lint and is not allowing the heat to escape.
If it never did work right,(for example: it is new to us) then I'd venture dryers are not supposed to vent their hot air that far away, they do not have a strong enough blower to push that air that distance.
Then, you might try to find another place to vent the hot air, with a total distance of only 10 feet from the dryer, even if you only vented it while you were actually drying clothers.
I doubt if the last item is for you, but I have sometimes seen where the washing machine did not spin all the water out of the clothes, and then the dryer needed all day to get the clothes dry.
Be blessed.

My 1993 Maytag Clothes Dryer heats up, turns but does not dry the clothes unless I place an absorbent towel in with the items. It sweats water from the bottom of the dryer. What is going on?


To dry clothes, we need 2 things:
1-heat to evaporate the water from the clothing
2- adequate air flow to exhaust the moist air, thereby drying them.

Your heat seems to work.....if you stop the dryer mid-cycle, the clothes should be hot.

It sounds to me like you have a lack of air flow through the dryer. If you can get to the exhaust vent grill outside, then see if you get a large volume of air coming out of it. If not, then look for the louvers stuck closed on your outside grill, or any kind of blockage in your ductwork.

Perhaps undo the vent at the back of the dryer TEMPORARILY

I have a Maytag Quiet Plus ll Model # MDE9806AYW. We found water in the dryer vent. Do you have any idea what could be causing this?


A plugged outlet vent. Start the dryer and go outside and check the vent. It should have a strong air flow. It the air flow is not strong check all the vent tubing and the outside vent.

It has a smell when turned on and it is hot on top


Verify that a restricted moisture vent is not the cause of the overheating condition. Pull off the vent hose and verify that it is not plugged with lint and that the air flow coming from the dryer is good. Also verify that the air flow to the outside of the house is good and not restricted with lint. Otherwise it could be an issue with the dryer thermostat causing it to continually heat until it is too hot.

max about 140 degrees normally with room temperature arpund 70 the drying time is normally 60minutes or less
contributing factors to long dry time
pinched vent hose final rinse cold water

''AF'' error on Maytag Bravos dryer


"AF" means "Air Flow". Your vents are cloged with lint. I have had to vaccum out my vents several times, both inside and out. It's been a bit of a pain.

Maytag atlantis takes hours to dry one load.


Most common problem is something blocking the venting process, either somewhere in the vent tube itself,,, or somewhere in the venting system inside the dryer, like maybe the blower fan.

Dryer flame shuts off after about 30 seconds


this sounds like a clogged vent more than a thermostat. go outside with the dryer running and see if hot air is blowing out the vent. if not check outside vent for birds nest etc, inside make sure the vent is straight any dips in vent could cause water to build up clogging the vent. try this first if it doesn't work write back
