Maytag mdg3000aww some times no heat

Thank You for the suggestion to replace the coils. I thought and hoped it would be them so I started to look for the part numbers of the coil kit earlier and plan on ordering them tomorrow.
Thank You Again

On MDG3000aww the dryer is not heating, How can I get it to heat? Do I need to call the gas provider or a service expert? If this will cost over $300 I want to just replace the appliance.


Below is a video to show you how to diagnose your dryer "no heat" problem. You will need a multimeter to troubleshoot with. Here is a list of the parts you may need depending on the ones you find that are bad. Don't worry, this is just a list of the parts that go out and does not mean you need to replace all of them. You will find that only one or two are bad. Please let me know if you need any further assistance.

May Tag Gas Dryer Model MDG3000AWW - Dry works but no heat, more dry/ less dry lights flashing. Whats wrong? How do I get heat again?


it is either your glow coil or it is your ignitor
open the door and remove the four screws
take the front panel off.
leave the door attached so you can test the dryer
be very careful not to touch any wires while you are doing this
now close the door and turn the dryer on
does the ignitor turn on?
if yes that is good
does the ignitor glow and no flame?
sometimes it will take a minute to show it's problem
if the ignitor glows and no flame replace your ignitor coils
make sure to turn the power off when replaceing the coils

My Maytag Neptune Model MDG3000AWW will heat initially but not maintain high heat. About 5 years ago, the Thermistor Sensor was replaced. Any help would be appreciated.


if it heats for the first 15 to 30 minutes and then no heat you have bad gas coils,when the coils are starting to fail they will work like normal until they heat up and then they fail,they will work again when they cool down and then fail again when heated up.unplug the dryer and remove the two phillips screws that hold the door on and remove the door.also remove the two screws opposite the door screws and grab the right and left part of the frame and pull it forwards to remove it.you'll see the gas valve and the two coils are on top of it.just remove the two phillips screws,remove the cover and change out the coils,do them one at a time because they are different,one has three prongs and the other has two.while you have the dryer open vac it out,if you have a shop vac you can blow the lint from the back to the front and vac it out,also blow off the motor,alot of lint gets stuck in the motor.clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into and if you have a long vent line,remove it from the back of the dryer and blow it out with a leaf blower,you have an open flame in there and i've seen them catch fire,also if you do this once a year you'll never have any problems with the dryer and your clothes will dry on time,let me know how you make out and good luck.

Maytag gas dryer will heat for about one minute


The gas coils on the gas valve have gone bad. These are located on the gas valve and will be 2 solenoids. Replace them both and should be able to get as a set. 12001349 should be the number and cost less than 60.00 for the set. Good luck and thank you for using Fix Ya.

Maytag neptune model mdg3000aww gas electric. just quit getting hot at all.What should i look for?


First, check to make sure that the ignitor is working properly. It should glow visibly if it is functioning properly. If the ignitor is working alright, and the burner won't light, then consider the gas valve coils. These electrical coils are above the gas valves and when energized, these coils open the gas valves and permit gas flow to the burner. If the coils are bad the burner cannot light. It is recommended that if any coils are suspected of being faulty, that both (all) be replaced at the same time and they will most likely come from the parts supplier as a set. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Gas dryer ignites at start up then cycles off, won't re-ignite


Below are some links, courtesy of www.repairclinic.com, that will assist you in diagnosing/repair of your dryer. You may have to enter your model number in the search box to access some of the information.

Below is a parts breakdown/disassembly procedures for your dryer.
http://www.repairclinic.com/Dryer-Gas-Maytag-Style-Appliance-Diagram


The link below shows an image of the gas valve coils, which is the most common failure component in the system.

1. Gas Valve Coils:
http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-MDG3000AWW-%3d%3di3479&PartID=3479

Below are some tips to follow if the coils are not faulty.

If your dryer doesn't heat, check these:

Igniter
Gas valve coils
Thermal fuse
Igniter Modern gas dryers use an electric igniter to ignite the gas from the gas valve. When it's working properly, the igniter glows bright orange. When it burns out, the dryer tumbles but there's no heat because the gas can't ignite. When the igniter burns out, you need to replace it. If the igniter is held by a tension bracket, you very well may need to replace the bracket too.

The igniter is inside the dryer housing, near the bottom front, usually in a cone-shaped metal tube (the force cone). It's about 2 inches long. It's mounted to the far end of the burner tube, and it has two wires attached to it--or to the tension bracket, if there is one.

Gas valve coils Watch the igniter. Does it glow bright orange, then shut off without igniting the gas? (When the gas ignites there's a large blue flame.) If so, there may be defective coils on the gas valve. Mounted on the top of modern gas valves, there are black electrical coils. The coils, when energized, open the gas valve. If one or more of the coils are defective, the valve doesn't open and the gas cannot ignite. Because it's often difficult to properly test the coils, it's usually best to replace both (all) of them at the same time.

Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing.

If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse to put the dryer back into operation. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.)

Maytag neptune model mdg3000aww heats for 20 - 30 second then the burner stops.


The most common failure item is the gas valve coil(s)

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.
Below are some links provided by, www.repairclinic.com. This can assist you with diagnosis, parts ordering and replacement.

Neptune mdg3000aww starts heating and runs fine but stops heating shortly after start up can restart heater starts again and shuts down


If the machine keeps running but just not heating you have a thermostat issue. It could be the operating therm. or the high temp limit therm malfunctioning, shutting off the element.

If the machine stops running completely, check the door switch.
