    I have the same problem. When the dryer first turns on the flame goes on and the dryer runs normally. After a few minutes, I hear a scrapping noise just when the coil starts to glow red, but no flame comes out.

My Maytag Neptune MDG5500AW Gas Dryer heats up for a few minutes then stops heating. any ideas? thanks!


This is usually the dryer coils have failed. They tend to fail as they heat up. They are inexpensive and easy to replace. Here is a video on replacing the dryer coils.
You will also find videos of disassembling most style dryers at the same site.

Sometimes it will heat for a few minutes and then it won't heat up at all. Seems to be an intermittent problem


Remove the connecting exhaust vent for a test only.
Run a dryer cycle with the vent removed.
If it works,repair your vent blockage.
If the same occurs,check the blower wheel on the end of the motor to make sure it is not spinning loosely on the shaft.
Next observe the glowbar ignitor.
Is it coming on and cycling after every extenguish?
If it comes on and does not light,replace the gas valve coils.

I have a Maytag Neptune gas dryer that is approx 8 yrs old and has worked great as far as drying time. The gas will now light and stay on for 15 seconds and then shut off, in 2 or 3 minutes it will light...


to me it sounds like your venting going out side,if it doesn;t get a clear flow it will come on and off the thermastate inside sencing to much heat.try unpluging the vent then try it if it stays on then you know your answer

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....

If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

check out this electric no heat tip...

Maytag Neptune gas dryer sense dry time at 99, little or no heat


If this is a gas dryer, I'd suggest an inspection by the gas company or qualified technician. If the jets aren't firing correctly, you are wasting gas and possibly creating a hazard.
