Question about Maytag MDE9700AYM Electric Dryer

1 Answer

My dryer does not get hot. We checked the lint trap and rest of the dryer vent passages. All is clear. We also opened up the back to see if anything had overheated. Everything looked Ok. Can you give me an idea of whatthe potential problem could be?

Cannot locate lint trap to fit my wsm2420 sazww washer dryer combo ge parts no will not fit


In the Kenmore equivalent, the lint trap is on the back wall of the interior of the dryer. If GE is the same then you'll see two vents at the back inside, one is the intake (where hot air enters), the other is the outtake, which contains a lint trap. You might have mistaken both for nonremovable vents. But one of them is removable. It should have finger holes or something to grab. Just pull it and it will pop out without difficulty. It's probably a two-piece unit (a grate on the dryer side and a screen on the exhaust side, with a space in between for collecting lint), which snaps or slips apart easily, then you can clear the lint, and then snap or slip it back together and just push it back in place in the dryer.

How do i clean the lint trap in side the dryer. I can't figure out how to take it apart.


There must be two vents going into the interior of the dryer, one is the intake (where the hot air comes from), the other is the outtake (where the lint trap must be). Locate the two vents and see if one of them has anything removable near it, or if the vent itself has finger holes or something that you can grab and pull or slide it open.

In some front loading models the two vents are at the back and both look like nonremovable vents. If that's the case, one actually pulls right out easily. It might then have two parts (the grate on the dryer side and the screen on the exhaust side) that snap or slide apart, with a space between for collecting lint. If that's the case, and you haven't cleared it in a long time, it will be packed full of lint. The two parts snap or slide apart, then you can get at the lint and remove it. Then snap or slide it back together and just push it back securely in place in the dryer.

Speed Queen dryer burner lights but does not dry clothes


This is a symptom of a severely clogged up vent or dryer passages.
Remove the vent duct hose from the back of the dryer and see if the problem persists. If it workes normally clean out the ducting and the through the wall flapper vent.
If the problem persists then remove the lint filter and inspect the air passages inside the dryer. Also check the exit hole where the vent duct connects for lint buildup. Use a crevice tool / vacuum to clear all dryer passages. If necessary use a folded coat metal hanger to assist in removing lint build up.

Wash the lint filter with whie wine vinegar and then soap and water to remove the dryer sheet particulate matter that builds up on the lint filter.

If the burner lights but goes out after 30 seconds then the flame sensor on the top of the burner assy ducting is bad.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Dryer has heat but clothes are still wet we dryed a dog pillow that came open and the stuffing went all inside. we took the back off and the shoot for the lint trap but there was no more lint.


If your machine is running properly and you have heat as you say then you may have a clog in the main vent line from the dryer through your house.

Try running the dryer once with the vent hose disconnected. If it dries your know the clog is in the house's vent line. Unusual but it does happen if you have a lot of lint.

Check first at the immediate opening point in the wall there is often a 90 degree elbow where lint can trap.

The other place is the cover plate on the outside of your house. Some at are static and others have vents that open and close. Those too can trap lint and cause a problem.

If you know you have a clog in the house line somewhere but the opening and exit are not clogged then take a drain auger (same as used to clear a clogged toilet) and run it through. If you don't have one try your garden hose.

Good luck.

Please rate if this gives you some direction.

Takes extra time to dry the clothes.


You may need to clean out your lint trap. Not just the part that you pull out. I'm talking about the entire tunnel. Even though we empty the lint trap regularly there's a lot that gets left behind and over time can become a fire hazard. Your arms and hands cannot reach everywhere in there. For this you can attach an old sock or rag to a coat hanger that has been opened up. Go down in there a couple of times with it. You'll be surprised at how much stuff comes out. To further help this problem you can also pull dryer out and check that the vent hose in back is clear and free of debris. Cleaning the trap screen (the part you pull out to empty the lint) with HOT water occasionally will also clear residue that has built up from using dryer sheets. Over time that residue will make those tiny screen holes smaller & smaller & smaller. All of this can affect your dryer's performance.

I hope this info was helpful to you. Good luck!

My dryer heats, but it has to run through two cycles to get a load dry


Check the vent and the lint trap. The vent pipe needs a clear path to exit the damp air. Check for bends in the vent tube as well as anything blocking the opening outside.

Use a brush meant for clearing the lint trap available at most hardware stores.

Dryer seem to take to long drying


Hello,

Very common problem. You need to call a
duct cleaning company and tell them to clean
your dryer vent. Rule-of-thumb: dryer vents
should be cleaned every couple of years to
prevent them from being clogged with lint and
causing lint fires. This is definitely your problem.
Good luck :)

p.s. one way to verify a clogged vent is
to go outside where the vent exits the house
and feel the air-flow. should have adequate air-flow.
