So I emptied the lint trap as I always do before putting in more laundry and start the dryer. When the dryer stopped the lint trapped was overflowing into the dryer. I emptied it and restarted the dryer...

This sounds like you have a blockage in the dryer vent tube. This is the plastic or metal exhaust tube the exits the dryer either in the back or the side. If you know where the vent exits the house you can go outside and with the dryer on you should be able to feel warm air exiting the vent. You might also look to see if a animal has made a next in the outside vent. You may also need to remove the exhaust vent from the back of the dryer, Generally it's connected with a few screws or a ty strap. Once the vent is removed you will physically need to look in the vent to see any obstructions. Remove anything you find. Once again start the dryer on no heat mode if you have on or on low heat and feel if you have any air coming from the vent with the hose or tube removed from the back. If no you have a good air flow then you have cleared the vent, no reconnect the vent tube and recheck back outside. You should have air flow through the outside vent, if not you will need to remove the vent obstruction. If you find that you have no air flow and the dryer drum is turning then you have a broken blower wheel.

Our model medt5870tw0 maytag dryer does not dry properly

First , remove the vent hose from the dryer to see if good air flow is coming out the dryer vent . If not , could have a bad blower wheel . If so , then check the vent hose AND vent to outside to see if blocked . A dryer will either heat or not heat . Since your dryer heats , try drying a load without the vent hose connected to the dryer and see if it heats fine (telling you , a vent problem is apparent . Sometimes a dryer is pushed too far back , kinking the vent hose also .

Dryer does not get hot enough to dry clothes Roper REX4634KQ1 Electric Dryer

The vent may be stopped up, or the vent hose crimped so the air cannot escape, you can check the air flow at the vent on the outside of the house while the dryer is running.
try cleaning the vent and the lint screen with a vacuum cleaner, you may need to replace the vent hose, this should solve the problem

Maytag performa dryer takes a long time to dry clothes on auto

What you have is a obstructed dryer vent. If you remove the vent hose from the unit you will see moisture inside it. This is why your unit isn't drying. If the heater has no air flow the overload is tripped. Check your vent for any blockage most of the problem is at the outside end of your vent. there's a flap or chicken wire you may find the obstruction there. Or you can use a leaf blower connect it to the inside vent, cover the outside vent with pantyhose. ( so you don't get lint allover your yard ) and you can clear your like that way. Good luck hope this helps

Dryer heats up but clothes won't dry

Sounds like to me, that you need to check the vent going outside from the dryer. I had the same problem, and found a birds nest in the dryer vent on the outside of my house restricing air flow. If that doesn't fix the problem, look into a new heating element and or thermostats for the dryers. The old ones could just not be getting hot enough anymore. Good luck.
