The resistance is too weak in the hot surface ignitor to keep the gas valve open and requires replacement.

I have a gas dryer, model MDG7657AWW that will not stay heated. Every time I put it on, the flame comes on for about 21 seconds & then shuts off. I replaced the igniter, hi limit thermostat, cycling t


On a gas dryer the heat normally only comes on for 30 seconds or until the drum temp reaches 160f at which time the flame is shut down by the cycling thermostat. The drum temp then starts to drop. When the drum temp reaches 105f then another blast of heat is issued for 30 more seconds.That is how they work. Put it all back together and trow a load in there.

Maytag LDG7500AAL dryer ignitor lites up but burner will not lite


Hello,
Their are 2 possibilities,based on exactly what is happeninh with your dryer.
1) If after the igniter came on,it stay on for 30 seconds to 1 minute and went off,but there was no flame as soon as the igniter went off? IF that is what your seening the coilds that open the gas valve are the problem. They are the 2 pod things on the top of the gas valve one of them has a plug with 2 wires on it,the other has a plug with 3 wires.IF no flame after the igniter went out those coils need to be replaced.

2) If the igniter came on and STAYED on and never went off within 1 minute?
for that since the igniter never turns off. The problem will be the flame switch. Its the black rectangle box mounted to the outside of the burner cone and has 2 wires attached to it.If the igniter did NOT go off the flame switch will be needed

The part numbers are,

GAS VALVE COILS 279834

FLAME SENSOR 338906

The parts could be purchased at your local appliance parts store or online at;
searspartsdirect.com
apdepot.com

I hope i have been able to help you fix your dryer,

one of the thermal sensors may be bad.
you may also have a faulty ignitor even though it glows it maynot be drawing enough current to keep the regulator open

Gas maytag dryer not heating up


check the thermal fuse in the dryer vent duct to be open,then if not the flame eye" radiant sensor" or the high-limit thermostat both on the burner tube if the sensor doesn't see(sense) a flame the gas valve will stay shut,then check the gas valve coils,both the BOOST and SECONDARY coil valves on the gas valve body as these can open up and not gas into the burner

I have a Neptune Gas Dryer MDG300AW and the flame goes out.


Well, first of all, the flame is not supposed to be continuous... it cycles on and off during the dry cycle because it staying on would incinerate your clothing. However, there are magnetic coils that do often go bad and cause the valve to stop opening after the beginning of the cycle... so you get a flame in the beginning, but if you were to sit there for 5 minutes with the dryer running, you would find that the flame stopped lighting completely.

They are pretty easy to replace... you will have to unscrew the little plastic pieces from the inside edge of the door, and unscrew the hinges and remove the door, then pull the front panel off (pull at the top).

Of course... UNPLUG before opening any appliance.

here's a picture of what you are looking for... they are completely outside the gas line, so changing them is very simple and doesn't require any handling of the gas. they are held on with a small metal plate.

Flame will cut off in 30 second


check the loose blower wheel and lint in the filter housing phenom associated with these dryers. The operator coils will get hot and quit and cool down after several hours and work again making it imposible to pinpoint a solution. Replace those coils. $20 bucks.
