Why does my dryer take so long to get loads dry?

There are several possible explanations. First, look to see if rigid ducting was used for venting. Then, make sure that ducting is clean and clear of restrictions. If ducting is free of blockage, check to make sure the flap in the wall cap is opening. Finally, take a look at the clothes that come out of the washer. They should be spun out properly and not extremely wet when you move them to the dryer. If none of these steps improves drying performance, check the operating temperature of your dryer. This can be done by holding a thermometer in the vent at the back. The temperature should be approximately 150° F on a regular setting. If the temperature is low, it's possible that you have a bad cycling thermostat. For more information or assistance, please contact your authorized Maytag Commercial Distributor.
