Maytag gas dryer is taking 2-3 cycles to dry. Cloths are still wet after first and sometimes second cycles. Dryer will eventually dry but on load will take hours to dry. What could be the problem?

Can I get the model number off your unit? There are a few different Maytag designs that can give you the problem you are having. Also are you losing heat completely at all? Let me know Thanks

I don't have the model number with me at this time. I'm not losing any heat that I'm aware of. When I open the dryer door the clothes are still wet, hot and steaming. The series of my dryer is Bravo.

If the clothes are steamy and wet when you open the door you have a clog or possible broken blower wheel. If you have made sure the vent is completely clear to the outside, then you need to check where the lint screen duct. If you want to see if your unit has a clog, disconnect the pipe from the back and turn the machine on. There should be a massive amount of air blowing out of the back pipe. If there is not then you have an internal clog or possible blower wheel problem. This will require some disassembly to get corrected.
