Dryer gets way to hot. I mean very hot. You can't even hardly touch the clothes so hot. And that's on all settings. What is the problem.

Lex for Model Number Maytag PYET344AYW

ANSWER Hello Lex, The first thing you want to check is to make sure that your venting from the blower all the way to the outside is clear of obstructions. What appears to be happening is the dryer is not able to release the heat and moisture to the outside. If this continues without the vent being cleared it will cause thermal fuse LA-1053 to fail.
