sorry model number is MDG7600AWW
in the timed cycle it does not dry all the way.. but timer does turn and heat does come on , but not enough.
in the intellidry cycle it heats up at first then seems to sit forever between more dry and less dry,clothing is luke warm at best and damp
we have damp cloths...lol:shock::?

Run the dryer on timed dry with the vent completely disconnected. Air flow should be strong and hot (between 145 and 165F-- check with with a meat thermometer. If it checks good, you have a venting problem.

there may have been a restriction where 2 pieces of duct were shoved together... it was down to about 3" diameter at the restriction.
be back in an hour or so......
PS should I be drinking beer while doing this?

* did run it on timed, high heat or regular, no exhaust hooked up and it heated to 150 that was with no clothes in it and only for 5 minutes.
* ran brand new clean 4 inch duct all the way outside so its not that
One thing though and this might be important................
.when i ran it with the exhaust disconnected i could hear the heater click on but did not heat up and could smell a little gas....then about one minute later I heard the click again and it did heat up.....is there some sort of igniter that could go bad that would cause all my problems?
also been smelling gas outside near where the exhaust leaves the house...

Mine was blowing but not having experience with said machine I had no idea just how wimpy it was while broken until it was repaired.

will run load after work tomorrow....if I make it to work that is.........with all the beerdrinking I have to do troubleshooting my dryer.
Do it on timed dryer, no vent connected, high heat.

Check for bad (or open-circuit) temperature sensor.

Moostaffa thanks for the great link
Gas Unit I'm Going to check out that temperature sensor
Pegi will the resistancer numbers on moostaff's link be good
for these maytag coils?
[user=1]Samurai Appliance Repair Man[/user] I ran it on both that way and it comes up to temp 150+
but heat does not stay on and does not dry clothes in a normal manner. pretty much all cool air with little spurts of heat few and far between
