Won't Dry Clothes

The dryer turns and air is flowing although there is no heat being produced. I checked to see if there were any breaks in the heating element and it is in good shape. I suspect maybe a faulty thermostat but I'm not experienced enough to diagnose this problem myself.

If you have a ohm meter... ohm out the themostates they should all be closed letting power though... you could .. IF Real Careful take the wires off themostate hook them together bypassing themostate to check... make sure wires are taped or in a position where they will not touch any thing or it will short out...make sure you dont touch wires while plugged in

My 1993 Maytag Clothes Dryer heats up, turns but does not dry the clothes unless I place an absorbent towel in with the items. It sweats water from the bottom of the dryer. What is going on?

To dry clothes, we need 2 things:
1-heat to evaporate the water from the clothing
2- adequate air flow to exhaust the moist air, thereby drying them.

Your heat seems to work.....if you stop the dryer mid-cycle, the clothes should be hot.

It sounds to me like you have a lack of air flow through the dryer. If you can get to the exhaust vent grill outside, then see if you get a large volume of air coming out of it. If not, then look for the louvers stuck closed on your outside grill, or any kind of blockage in your ductwork.

Perhaps undo the vent at the back of the dryer TEMPORARILY

Takes to long to dry clothes

after checking and replacing the vent going outside still the air was not venting and inside my drier everything was wet although the air was hot. After removing the rear panel i saw the blower belt disconnected. it took me some time to get the belt on but everything is ok and the air is venting and clothes getting dried. Also note that the little pulley came off its positio too.

Dryer takes twice as long to dry clothes.

Did you check the outside vent? Those get clogged as well.

Needs two cycles to dry clothes!

This caused by one of two possible things. Either you have poor air flow, or a clogged vent preventing air from flowing freely and therefor making the dryer short cycle, which in turn will take you two or three times to dry yor clothes, or the heating element has gone bad, burnt in half and is making contact with the case to provide it just enough power to barely heat. The second thing is a very rare occurance. I would turn the dryer on, find out where the air vents out to, and with the dryer running, go to where it vents and check to see if there is a strong flow of air. 9 times out of 10 that is going to be your problem. Another way to check air flow is to just pull the vent off the back and let the dryer run and see if your clothes dry faster. If you do it that way and they still take a long time to dry, then you'll probably need to replace the heating element

Dryer can't turn on. Start button just buzzes.

replace the "Broken-Belt" switch by the drum motor,when the belt breaks it shuts off the heating element so as not to burn the clothes because the drum can't turn to produce air flow to dry the clothes as they tumble,when you replace the belt it will make the switch close the circuit again and it will start

Dryer takes 2 hours to dry clothes/towels. Also there is no lint on the lint screen.

With dryers taking too long to dry this usually means you have a clogged vent or lack of air flow which is suffocating the dryer causing it to not heat to its full potential. Turn your dryer on and find out where it vents out to and see if the flow of air is strong. You may have a crimped dryer vent, or the exhaust flap where the air comes out could be stuck. Worst case scenario is your heating element has a wire burned in two causing it to partially heat but not enough to dry. You'll have to visually check for that by exposing the element and looking for a break in the wiring, but this is not a common thing. Check your air flow issue before you go looking for the problems with the element.
