Question about Maytag Dryers

1 Answer

I HAVE A MAYTAG FRONT LOAD DRYER MODEL LDG8426AAE. IT DOES NOT SEEM TO BE GETTING HOT WHILE DRYING. THERE ARE NO UNUSUAL SOUNDS OR ODORS. I THINK IT COULD BE AN IGNITOR OR POSSIBLY A THERMOSTAT INSIDE THE DRYER. DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEAS WHAT THE PROBLEM COULD BE. IT IS A GAS DRYER.

Based on your problem description, it sounds like you are on the right track.. Many driers use over-temp switches ( snap switches) near the source of heat and one of them could be disabling your gas from coming on.. Some models use auto-resetting sensors.. others use these sensors that have a little reset button on them.. That will require you to gain access to them and manually push it on... Of course.. it could also be the ignitor too.. If you can open up the drier ( either with or without a gas line attached) and plug it in.. you should be able to try to run it and watch for the ignitor to glow.. .. Those are a few ideas on how to diagnose the problem.. Hope that helps.. ( I assume you have gas availiabe to the system)

Maytag MDE8600AYW takes way too long drying clthes


either your house vent is plugged, or the vent in the dryer by the blower is plugged. when the vent is plugged, even partially, the moisture is not leaving the dryer. It will take a long time to dry, and the top of the dryer will get hot when the vent is plugged. Clean the house vent and check down below the lint trap by the blower, then it will dry fine again.

NOt drying clothes like it should


Has air flow problem, check to make sure the vent going to the outside is not blocked. If it isnt, you should be able to take off back cover of dryer. Should be a duct that air goes through, take it apart and make sure there is no lint in bottom of it. I had the same problem and that fixed it.

Maytag front load dryer thumps while turning, empty, full etc.


If your Maytag is like my Maytag, there are two screws at the two bottom corners of the front panel. Once you remove both screws the front panel will lift out, up, and off. Then you can see what is going on inside.

Not 100% about this model, but the stat is located next to the fan.
Remove the front cover - insert a flat blade between the lid and front panel approx 4" in from each side to release the clips, lift the lid, remove the front panel (2 screws) fan and stat at the bottom, rest is straight forward.

the vent that takes the air from the dryer out of the house is clogged. not the part right behind the dryer but from where it goes into the wall to where it leaves the house needs to be cleaned. when the air cant leave the dryer at normal speed it takes for ever to dry a load of clothes
