Question about Maytag Atlantis MDG6400AW Gas Dryer

3 Answers

Maytag Atlantis MDG6400AWW does not stop on auto-dry. Heats fine and timer was replaced to no avail. Time Dry works.

4-prong thermo? I couldn't find any moisture sensor in the drum or in the lint area. Any help is truly appreciated as I have replaced the igniter since it wasn't heating and then this auto-dry not stopping issue pops up and the timer was not the issue. =(

Thanks!

    I think it maybe the multi-temp gas thermostat.

    The unit doesn't show any display for error codes that I can think of. =(

My Maytag MDG6400AWW timer does not advance in the Auto mode. The clothes will dry but it will spin and spin for hours until you open the door. In timer mode everything appears to work normally

I have a maytag dryer and when you start it the timer doesn't move - it will run for hours unless you stop it. now when you pull the knob to start it doesn't respond


Sounds like the problem is in your timer contacts, in which case you would have to replace your timer. A no heat scenario on auto dry could also cause a dryer to run continuously.

Hope this helps _MJ_

I have a Maytag Atlantis Gas Dryer that will turn on, rotate, but will not get hot and dry the clothes. A load of clothes in the afternoon, didn’t dry, tried again but didn’t dry – went to bed after putting on auto dry - next morning the dryer was still rotating and didn’t turn off. No hot air – only cold air.

Does sound like the timer, although the clock is moving, the contact for the heater element is burned out inside the timer, you probably have used this timed dry for your normal day to day use and worn out the contact, new timer required.
