Fixed! Maytag dryer won’t heat normally

The process of drying clothes should be performed properly and of high quality, but it happens that sometimes the temperature in the dryer rises very much. The result of such drying can be burnt clothes as well as a fire in the house. If you suspect your Maytag dryer is generating more heat than it should, take the initiative to correct the problem. Procrastination is OK for some problems, but not for this one! The most common mechanical problems with dryers appear due to violation of the maintenance. Heating element malfunction might be a problem. Sometimes a defect in the heating element of an electric dryer can cause it to run out of control. This can happen when there is a partial short circuit in the element, which causes it to continuously produce heat, and not only when it is specified by the program. Air flow disturbance refers to a common breakdown. The dryers provide constant air exchange for efficient operation. Hot and humid air must constantly come out, and fresh air must be sucked in. If an obstacle in the ventilation system restricts air access, then heat will accumulate in the drum. When this happens it is necessary to check the air ducts for foreign objects. Sometimes a decrease in air flow may be the result of a mechanical problem rather than a disturbance in the ventilation system. This can happen if the blower fan breaks down. If it does not reach the correct speed, it will be too hot in the dryer. A bad thermostat is a rather typical issue. Most dryers have a thermostat (or thermistor) to keep the heat at the correct level. If the thermostat is faulty it can cause the dryer to start hot. Of course, it is possible that cold air may appear in the drum, which will not dry out the laundry. In this case, there is only one solution - to replace the thermostat. Remember that sealant is not able to work properly forever. Most dryers consist of a felt seal between the ends of the drum and the front and rear walls. It is designed to prevent clothing from getting caught between the drum and the wall when the drum is spinning. The seal also maintains the heat inside. When the material starts to wear out, heat can be transferred from the drum to the internal structure of the dryer. If this happens, the thermostat will interpret the loss of heat from the drum as a signal for more heating, and as a result, there will be a strong increase in the temperature in the dryer.
