Disconnect the vent hose run the dryer, as it sounds from what you described as a restricted vent tube. Tim

My dryer is not very hot when I turn on. Also, it take more than 2 hours dryer, and it is not dry. Please let's me know.


check the vent, make sure the vent is clear. If the vent is clear and unit is still taking long to dry, let me know ad we go to step 2. But 8 times out of 10 its the vent.

I have a maytag intellidry dryer and when finished with drying, clothes or whatever are still damp


Check the ventilation for lint. You may need to replace the duct vents if you have any. The lint tends to build up and prevent the dryer igniter from staying on thus the clothes do not dry all the way.

Wont start up.


Sounds like the motor is failing. The main cause of failure is overheating due to clooged venting. Is the dryer taking more than 60 mins to dry?? If so then the vent is clogged. Its likely too that the motor is covered with lint and not being able to properly dissipate its own heat, you could clean it and see if it helps but usually once they are shutting down overheated (the burning smell is the motors' internal windings being very hot) they need replacement.
