Default Dryer takes too long
Model Number: mde2400ayw   Brand: Maytag   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


My dryer takes several hours to dry a load of clothes. Seems to take just as long regardless of the size of the load. It has been this way for years. When I start the dryer the time reads 1:36; then seems to go up from there.

I've cleaned all vents several times. The vent exhaust is only about 5' from the dryer.

Checked voltage at outlet - read 240V

Changed the heating element.

Changed both of the thermostats near the heating element.

Chnaged the thermistor.

Any other ideas?
