    DRYER IS NOT a MAV6000

    it is Maytag Atlantis MDG6400

    I suspect you have the answer! Try Amazon or e-bay for a timer, after you take the control panel apart and get the numbers off the old one.

I hope you got this fixed by now but if not I'll put in my 2 cents.. I assume that your dryer is electric and not gas. Assuming that is true then you probably have an open heater element.. similar to this used in electric stoves... There may also be other components that could have failed and in so doing, disabled power to that element. Could be a contactor or temp switch/thermistor.. Hope this helps and that you've already solved the problem...

SOURCE: maytag compact dryer low heat doesnot dry. works for hrs clothes still damp.

i am sending you all the possibilities for your problem, check either of these causes ----and than let me know if it is solved----

Power from the house
Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.


Heating element
Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.


Thermal fuse
On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)


Wiring
A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

SOURCE: Matag NeptuneDryer MD5500AWW - intermittent heat - not drying

this is joyce
It is as you guessed your sensor. it is usually located in door but some models are in back of machine on inside, go online download document papers go to maytag.com put in model# and then download your model # and it will show you where your sensor is located, it should be simple to replace. I had the same problem with my dryer.
I am glad you said you checked the dryer lines because if these get clogged up they will cause the dryer not to dry the clothes correctley. very smart....if you need me to help let me know.

thanks,

joyce

SOURCE: maytag dryer not heating up thus not drying clothes

This is usually a simple heating coil malfunction. The coil may have breaks in it causing it not to work. It could also have something to do with 1 of several heating sensors that may be broken, telling the dryer's heating coil that the dryer is too hot, in effect turning off the heating coil. If your dryer has a round lint filter in the rear of the drum, it was 1 of 2 models of Dependable care dryers produced in the 1970's. If this is the case, i supose it would be up to you whether you want to try and get it repaired or not. If you have one of the more recent models,,, the lint filter is directly behind the door, at the front of the drum. and in this case it would probably be a good idea to get it looked at it as Maytag is a relatively dependable brand.

Is it an auto sensor shut off? If so, it may be that your hose is plugged and so actually takes that long to dry the clothes.

Maytag dryer MEDC400VW0 takes 4 cycles to dry towels, they get warm and create a lot of steam. Have already replaced the heating element. What should I try next?


Sounds like a restricted vent system either internally in dryer, linked vent behind dryer, or obstruction in vent going out of house. Also could be blower wheel stripped out and not blowing much air.

My Maytag Atlantis dryer takes hours to dry a load - I've cleaned out the filter and still everything is damp even after 3 hrs! What's the problemo ?


Check your vent and the vent hose. At least once our dryer wouldn't dry anything when the cover flap on the vent was dislodged and couldn't swivel open. Also check if the dryer is getting warm. If the thermostat isn't working (any dryer) or the burner has failed, you could see this problem.

I hope this helps.

Dryer won't spin


If you have kids and they over fill the dryer it strains all systems including the heater because it cannot get rid of excess heat. Solution*** Possibly needs a new belt

CLOTHES WONT DRY. IT GETS REALLY HOT INSIDE. THEY SEEM WETTER AFTER IT RUNS FOR AWHILE. TAKES PROLLY 3 HRS TO DRY.


Hi,

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have nottaken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then youneed to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should takeplace. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causesfor your dryer to fail.

Dryer not heating as it should. Gets warm, but takes several cycles to dry clothes


Could be 2 things... either your heat source is out of repair or your vent is blocked. Since you say it only gets warm I'll assume the problem is with the gas coils inside the unit. These parts are replaceable

Dryer wont heat enough to dry clothes


Like every maytag dryer I have ever fixed you probably have a big old ball of lint in the filter housing. You also might have a loose blower wheel. Very common problem in these machines.
