Why is my Maytag dryer not getting hot?
If your Maytag dryer is not heating, it is possible that it is not being supplied with the proper voltage. Most electric dryers require two legs of 120 volts AC that is equal 240 volts. If one leg of voltage is shut off by a tripped breaker or blown fuse, the dryer may be able to run but it will not heat.
Why does my dryer get warm but not hot?
With an electric clothes dryer, no heat often means that the circuit breaker or fuse that controls the power has blown; reset or replace it. Be aware that a dryer may have two breakers or fuses. The motor will run when one works, but the heating element requires both.
How often should I clean my dryer vent?
Dryer exhaust vents should be inspected and cleaned at least once a year depending on the size of the household and dryer usage. “I have four children and do lots of laundry, so I clean it three times a year,” said Smith.
