My dryer is taking two cycles to dry the clothes. I have cleaned out the exhaust line and the lint trap but it still takes longer particularly on heavier clothes such as towels. The element is heating. Could it be the element still or something else. I measured across the element and it seems to be good. It measures around 13 ohms. Any ideas?

Hi.. Last week I was drying clothes. The timer got to 20 minutes and never shut off. Today the same but was heating. So I moved it away from the wall and let it run to see if it was lint build up. After moving back in place I noticed that it was not heating. I looked inside the coils and there was a black piece of placstic in the coils and about an inch of coils that had broken off. Can this all be one problem and it is the heating eliment and or do i need to replace both , heating eliment and timer? Thanks.. Dee Dee

When we push the start button, it only buzzes. A few weeks ago it did the same thing and after it cooled off, it started. Now it just buzzes and doesn't start. Could it just be the thermal fuse? When it was working it heated well. It is a Maytag Performa dryer. Model # PYET444AYW Serial# 15561376GA/OR LAST TWO ARE 6A

There seems to be an electrical burn smell coming from the dryer. I opened it up and vacuumed out as much lint as I could. I examined the element and appears to have a couple of black spots but isn't too bad. I can see the element heating up and the dryer runs. There still seems to be a slight burning smell. Do you think the element is bad?
