Question about Dryers
Maytag Neptune gas Clothes Dryer
No or limited heat during drying cycle
Drum turns freely.
Plenty of air flow out of dryer exhaust with vent disconnected and connected, as every nook and cranny was cleaned and vaccumed.
When first turning on dryer, Igniter glows orange/red gas ignites and burns for 30 seconds or so then flame shuts off. With in 30 to 60 seconds cycle is repeated.
Sometimes on initial start up, this cycle will take place once, sometimes twice. Then symptoms change. After the one or two ignitions and burns, the igniter will glow as before but the gas valve won’t open and therefore there is no burn. Then the igniter shuts off for a minute or so. It will keep this on / off cycle up. When the gas valve fails to open and while the igniter is glowing I hear a rattle that seems to be coming from the gas valve coils.
