Question and Answers

Q:

Why is my Maytag gas dryer not heating?

A:

It sounds like a problem with the gas valve coils. Since you stated that the dryer starts out warm, then we know that the burner is coming on initially. This points us in the thermostat or poor airflow direction. If the airflow is good then I recommend checking the thermostats & flame sensor. This will require using a meter for testing components with. If you have a meter & want to go through the repair process yourself, please resubmit your updated question & we will guide you through some voltage & resistance checks.

How do I check the airflow. There had been a problem with a really horrible noise but it still dried. Then the noise quit and it won't dry. I did take the outside vent off the back and I cleaned the inside vent with the sweeper.

A:

Check to see if you feel air blowing out of the vent on the side of your house. If you feel a significant flow of exhaust air coming out of the vent the air path is probably clear.

Q:

I'd like to upgrade my 1/3 horsepower dryer motor to 1/2 horsepower, what part number would I use?

A:

The only motor that is listed for this model number is the one you referred to in your message. I have no way of cross referencing part numbers to suggest a suitable ½ horsepower substitution for your dryer. The dryer you have was designed to operate safely and efficiently with a 1/3 horsepower motor. I would not advise anyone to alter the design or operation of possibly dangerous electrical equipment.
