    Gas dryer extremely hot to touch but not drying clothes

    Model Number:
    Brand: Maytag
    Age: More than 10 years

    The dryer is extremely hot to touch on all sides yet it is not drying any clothes. I cleaned the vent (which is on an incline and easily backs-up) but not sure what else to check myself. Is it time to call a professional or can I do more trouble shooting myself? The dryer is over 20 years old and it may be time to replace it. Thanks!

    Can you feel the air blowing out of the vent on the outside of the house? Lint can also build up inside the dryer that can restrict the airflow. I will need the model number of your dryer if you would like more help.
