Customer Question
My daughter-in-law has a...

My daughter-in-law has a Maytag Centennial dryer, Mod # MEDC200XW1. The problem is that it appears to heat on three of the four cycles.The fourth cycle energy preferred? blows cold air. On the cycles with heat the clothes must go through 2-3 cycles to dry,

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

MEDC200XW1 approx 5-6 years old.

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

Depends on the expertise required,

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

I removed the vent hose this morning and found it 75% plugged.

Hello, I'm Ray and will be happy to help you. Anytime the vent is blocked up it will run several cycles to dry a load of cloths. Is it still doing it after you cleaned it? One of the cycles is fluff/air dry with no heat

The vent line is clear, now, and it is still doing it.
Appliance Technician: Ray, Home Appliance Technician replied 4 months ago

does the vent go straight outside or does it go up a wall out the roof or anything like that?

The only thing left to it that would cause it to do that would be the timer
