I currently replace my heating element the dryer has been working fine ever since, now it heats up runs a complete cycle, but the clothes are still damp?? Even after several cycles, I know its heating but it seem like a sensor or something is indicating false info which leads the machine to think its ready, is there such a component to check or replace? Thank you
Answer Hello Luis. 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.
Dryer wont heat. Vents clear. Took heating element to repair place and was ok. They felt was thermostat. Gave me ER279769 but got home and was 3391914. Will this work or do I have to go back?
Answer Hello Jojo,
You will want to look at the thermostat to make sure it has the same rating. The 3391914 says that it is good afor 146.1f -44.4c. If the part you received is not this rating then you would want to get correct part.
Hi, the dryer starts, but then stops (once in a while; 1 in 5 to ten starts) 1 to 5 minutes after start. The vents are all clear and not long runs. Clothes once in a while are warm, but not fully dry. Thoughts?
Answer Robert, You didn't mention any error/fault codes in the display, when this occurrs. You should probably start at the dryer terminal block on the back of the dryer, make sure there are no loose connections where the line cord attaches. also check and make sure you have the proper power supply to the outlet and at the dryer terminal block. You'll find the tech data information sheet attached to the inside on the lower access panel, you'll be able to conduct several diagnostic tests using the information, and have a better idea of the issue.
The heating element on my Maytag Duet dryer has power going to it but does not heat. I checked the element and the coil is in good shape, no breaks or cracks. What is causing it not to heat?
Answer Hello Don,
You need to make sure that the unit is getting 240Vac if it is an electric model. If it is a gas unit, the voltage should be 120Vac and you must have a good ground and neutral. There are several components in both the gas and electric models that, if open, will break the circuit and prevent the units' proper operation. If you could please re-post with a model number, we can help you to get the unit operating normally once again.
my dryer wont start and the 'check lint screen' light lit up and i dont know where or what to check
Answer Paul, The palce to start is the dryer door switch 8283288. If the switch or wores are damaged, the dryer won't start and the check filter light will stay on. We'll send you some additional information that will help you out. Thanks
The dryer wont start and the "check lint screen" light lit up so what do I have to do?
Answer Hello Paul. If the lint screen is clear, you may need to replace the thermistor in the unit.
I have replaced 3391914 and purchased the thermal fuse kit #47. After replacing thermostat dryer is still running on HOT. Could this be that I need the control board. Heating element is stays on glowing at all times.
Answer Hello Steve. You need to check and see if the heater is grounded out and staying on. If so, replace the heater. If the heater is good, the thermistor may be bad on the unit and will need to be replaced. Test the temperature coming out of the dryer duct and see if it cycles. If so, the vent is the issue with the unit. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3.
