1st thing I always tell people to do is turn the 30 amp breakers off an then back on. Only the heating element is 240 volts, the motor is 120 volts. So if 1/2 the breaker trips the unit will run, but no heat. Try this first. Also depending on dryer if there are buttons for different heat settings make sure the button is all the way in. Some dryers if you hit several buttons at the same time will cause none to be selected and shut down the heat. Hope this helps.

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.

We have an lg dle3777w dryer and it doesnt seem to get very hot to dry the clothing...it takes many cycles to get one load dry...any ideas???


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

As everything in your dryer is working fine apart from it heating properly so the recommended repair will be thermal fuse/thermostat replacement. However, you can also test its continuity before replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

SETTINGS


check the hi-limit switch on the element case or the cycling switch on the motor blower housing,they get weak and cut out too soon and dont keep element hot long enough do dry clothes properly

My electric dryer heats up but doesnt dry the clothes


If your vent hose is more than about ten feet long, your dryer may not have enough pressure to keep the air moving sufficiently to dry the clothes. Is it possible you are simply over loading your dryer?

Dryer gets hot but wont dry clothes


Do you know if the dryer vent is free of obstructions?Check outside where the dryer vents outside ,and see if the air is weak or flowing freely.If it is not clogged the air should be pretty strong from the vent outside.If it has blockage it will definitly take longer to dry your clothes.
