You can count on Maytag for your washer and dryer. Maytag appliances are usually reliable and can be depended on. Even so, even the best appliances will realistically encounter some issues at one point. You may even need to retain the services of an appliance repair company, whether it is to perform preventative maintenance or to tend to a more serious issue. However, before jumping on the phone, try to troubleshoot your appliance first. To that effect, A-Tech Appliance Parts & Service, an appliance repair company in Northwest Arkansas, Fort Smith and Little Rock, has prepared the following guidelines to give you a hand in troubleshooting your Maytag dryer.

  1. Dryer will not turn on

Depending on where your dryer is, it could be connected to the same breaker as other major devices in the house. If too many devices are used at once, the breaker shuts down the power to avoid an electrical overload. Try unplugging a couple of appliances and try to start the dryer again.

  1. Dryer seems to work, but clothes aren’t dry

The heating device may be broken, which would mean that the air blown on the clothes is nothing but normal air. Evidently, drying clothes this way is not very efficient. If you think the heating element is not working, refer to your owner manual for instructions on how to change it.

  1. Clothes take way too long to dry. Room becomes hot and humid

Most likely, it means your exhaust pipe (the metallic tube behind your dryer) isn’t installed correctly, resulting in restricted airflow out of the dryer. This problem can be solved very simply. Just pull your dryer and fix the pipe to allow proper air circulation. If the air flow is sufficient, the dryer should have no trouble running.

Evidently, more serious trouble can arise in a Maytag dryer, especially if you had it for many years.
