Customer Question
I have a Maytag...

I have a Maytag gas clothes dryer that is not blowing any air out of the vent line and is not drying clothes. I have used a long brush to verify there is no lint blocking the vent. its line the fan is not coming on. it appears to be heating up but the moist air has no where to go.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Maytag is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

I believe it is a Bravos model. I remember it was almost a grand 3 or 4 years ago it is a front loader.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Not if I can get someone to come when i can be there or can have someone meet them. If it is just a reset button hidden somewhere, would give that a go. Saturday would be perfect if someone can get there then.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I don't think so. Everything else appears to be working, just not blowing air out vent.
