    I am experiancing the same problem. The dryer runs but no heat. I cleaned out the vents also. How did you get the front of the dryer off? I need to clean lint out in the actual blower turbine. Thanks.

The flame going out is normal. the heat cycles on and off as called for by the thermostat. If the heat doesn't come back on i would start by changing the gas coils.

Maytag electric dryer smells like its over heating


Suggest you clean the lint trap AND THE exhaust hose. If either is blocked up, the dryer could overheat - and cause a fire if it gets too hot.

How do i clean the lint trap in side the dryer. I can't figure out how to take it apart.


There must be two vents going into the interior of the dryer, one is the intake (where the hot air comes from), the other is the outtake (where the lint trap must be). Locate the two vents and see if one of them has anything removable near it, or if the vent itself has finger holes or something that you can grab and pull or slide it open.

In some front loading models the two vents are at the back and both look like nonremovable vents. If that's the case, one actually pulls right out easily. It might then have two parts (the grate on the dryer side and the screen on the exhaust side) that snap or slide apart, with a space between for collecting lint. If that's the case, and you haven't cleared it in a long time, it will be packed full of lint. The two parts snap or slide apart, then you can get at the lint and remove it. Then snap or slide it back together and just push it back securely in place in the dryer.

Dryer works only on high heat; will not respond to touch pad.


Replace the gas valve coils. They have gotten weak and do not open on the next call for heat.

I love the Maytag Atlantis!!! This sounds like your motor may be bad. It's NOT the element or it would not heat at all. Hope this helps!

Maytag atlantis gas dryer, will start, heat up but then no heat


Try running it with the vent disconnected and feel the air coming out of the dryer. It should have good flow. If it dries good, your pipe may be clogged.

the gas coils have a problem. as the dryer heats p the coils on the gas valve are failing causing the dryer not to heat. replace the coils and you should have no problem
