Question about Maytag Dryers

1 Answer

My dryer ran all day long. The timer was still in the same position as when I left the house. The 'regular' heat is now not working either, air fluff only.

Hotpoint nvl333gyoww gas dryer's timer stopped working and ran for an extended length of time (about a day). After looking over the dryer, i noticed that during the no heat cycle the timer would work. So...


the timer : if you use time dry the timer should always move and complete the cycle. if you use auto dry the timer uses a sensor to tell the timer to move. If your not getting any heat your sensor might not tell the timer to move.

So lets start with the no heat problem. First make sure your Vent is clear or just disconnect the vent and put a pair of womans stocking over the end to keep the dust down, This will ensure you do not have a blocked vent. ((( If you have a blocked vent on a gas dryer the safty sensor will shut off the gas valve and you will only get a little bit of heat))) Now try the dryer for small load, ((( if this solved your problem then you have a cloged vent )))

If this did not solve your problem then the coils on your gas valve in the dryer are probably bad.

WED5321SQ0 dryer doesn't heat or shut off once it's running


well if ran all night you maybe be running a even heat or auto dry cycle. i would first try on a timed dry see if heat then. if does heat (which probably wont) you will be need to replace either the sensor or board that controls the auto dry. or a very small chance that the timers bad. most likely you have a bad heating element. if the machine doesnt heat on the timed dry, then you need to check continuity on the heat fuse(located on heat element housing). if good then check continuity on heat element. i would say you have a bad element or heat fuse.

Dryer not blowing hot air- timer not working


im assuming your on the automatic cycle. on this cycle the timer will not advance without heat. check you house circuit breaker/fuse. if one goes the unit will run but will not heat.

The timer on my dryer isn't working properly


HI. the timer motor is damaged at this point. The Auto sector is dead. This is not a serviceable part, and you will need to replace the entire timer mechanism to correct this issue.

GE Profile dpsr473ewoww timer doesn't work and heat level is low


We should address the heat problem first. If your dryer complaint is "heat seems low" or taking "too long to heat", this is commonly confused for other problems. When in fact, you may really have a "ventillation problem". Do you feel (with hand) alot of hot air pressure coming out the back of the dryer or house vent-line (for dryer)?

I would disconnect and clean the dryer exhaust vent/duct (at wall and machine). Then, while leaving the vent-line disconnected temporaily, test and run your dryer. You may see an signficant improvement.

Does it heat up better?
Do you feel alot of hot air and pressure coming out the back of the dryer?
When connected; do you feel alot of hot air pressure coming out of your house dryer vent?

Dryer turns, heats up but won't dry


check the outside of your house to see how strong the blowing is if it's weak then it's in the vent tube

Maytag PYE3300AZW Dryer ran great shut off after 10 min.Willnot start again. Power to dryer is there. Took it apart,brought the door switch in to test it works. There is a live wire on the Timer Wire...


you have an open thermal fuse la1053 located on the right lower side of the heating element housing, it opens when the temp reaches 300 degrees f . this is telling us that the air flow is not good, lint buildup inside the filter housing in the door is a good place to start and or kinked vent hose or venting problem

Heating element stays on after door is opened


possibly something grounding the element to the housing. what brand of dryer do you have? GE/Hotpoint dryers are good at allowing things like underwires from a bra to get into the element area and ground out the element. or possibly the element has broken and the broken end has fallen against the housing. hope this helps
