Most likely problem is the exhaust is plugged. Lint build up and eventually restricted the humid exhaust air.

To test for this locate the exhaust vent where it exits the house. With the dryer running feel for the air flow. It should be similar to the flow you feel from hair dryer.

Second test is to light load the dryer setting the heat to high and after several minutes of operation open the door and confirm the clothes are hot to the touch.

Hot clothes and no air flow for ever to dry!!

  1. Remove hose from wall connection. Confirm vent hose not plugged by running dryer. Very dusty process. If no air step 2.
  2. Remove vent hose from back of dryer. Confirm air flow from dryer. Very dusty process. No air step 3.
  3. Service dryer blower likely plugged with lint. If dryer basket turns I would assume blower is also turning connected by drive belt. The blockage internal to dryer.
  4. So if not 1,2 or 3 than blocked vent hose to the outside . Suggest using a vacuum hose to carefully try to retrieve lint build up. Lets hope that it is not a roof vent because it would really suck trying to pull the blockage out. And unless your Santa roof tops are dangerous places to play.
  5. Well at least at this point we know why the clothes are not getting dry. What ever you do do not breach the venting in the walls. Moisture will build up along with the lint and create havic with mold!!!
  6. Call your husband

check the line inside leading to the flame igniter and glo bar, how did u check for gas leak? just smell or sight? try using a mixture of water and dish detergent by spraying it on the lines while gas is on, and if u see bubbles u got gas leak?

There are a few different scenarios which would cause the dryer not to start. First, make sure you door switch is functional. Second, the white thermal fuse, located on the exhaust housing may be open. Worst case scenario would be a defective timer or motor. Either of these may not be cost-effective to replace.

My best guess, is it is your blue jeans. fingernail polish remover..non acetone usually does the job. Stay in a well ventillated area when doing this. Good luck.

3b524099-f5e5-4a68-9cbb-7c75f853808e.pngAir Flow issue sounds like. Is there go air flow at the rear of unit? Maytags of this style usually wear out blower wheels which moves the air through the unit, check the blower wheel see if you can move it without turning the drum, This is of course with the front panel off, The blower wheel is item #4 in the diagram and it's locate just behind the front panel.

You either have an issue with your cycling thermostat, or the gas valve solenoids. I could get into a very lengthy explanation as to what to do to diagnose, but for what these two items will probably cost you to buy, I would change both.

Hi, I have the Maytag Neptunes which were a couple of years old but never used. Turned out that they both (I had 2 of them) had faults with the motors and needed new motors. Because I had 2 they were both doing the same thing which was cutting out before the clothes were dry because there was something wrong with the motors. I am in NZ and my machines would have had to have a currency conversion but I don't think that was the root of the problem. It took me quite a while ringing service people here at the supplier to find out that there had been an issue. It didn't cost me to have them fixed as it was a fault with the machine. If I had only had one machine I am not sure if I could have proved this.

That unit has an electronic ignitor. You should not have to lite the pilot. There is no pilot to lite. If the dryer is taking longer then normal to heat. Check your vent to the outside. If the ignitor is not turning on it could be the ignitor, flame sensor and or thermal fuse. Check D.I.Y. Appliance Repair Troubleshooting to see if there is anything that can help you there.

Not too familliar with the gas temp either, but you should definitely take your lint filter out and clean it with soap and water. If you use dryer sheets, they can leave a clear film on your filter and it can be just as bad as a filter full of lint. Try this out, if it works, clean your filter periodically with soap and water to remove the chemical buildup.

Unplug the dryer, remove the door hinge screws that go into the cabinet and the two screws on the opposite side of the door opening, then the front panel can be removedby starting at the top. Once the front is off, there are two screws, one to each side that hold the top on, remove these and raise the top. You can rotate the drum by hand and the baffles are held on by the screws on the outside of the drum. Reassemble in reverse order.
