The dryer takes 3 hours to dry a load of clothes. It just isn't getting hot enough. It is otherwise working just fine.

Beverly for Model Number Maytag Dryer MDE 2400AYW

ANSWER Hello Beverly. It sounds like the venting system is clogged or kinked. You will need to check the vent and clean it out. Be sure and clean the vent pipe and the dryer air duct assembly. If the air flow is not good, the unit will retain moist air causing the clothes not to dry. Try running the unit with the vent unhooked from the back of the dryer and see if the dryer works properly.
