Ok when you open the dryer door there is four screws two on the door hinge and two across the other side in the same manner. When these are removed you will want to lift slightly on the door to disengage the hinges from the case to remove. Now this front piece will unclip and come off. You will see the lint trap duct in white in front of you. Now look to the left and around the duct to see where the sensors are at the elbow. Check the continuity of these after you unplug the power and after removing the wires from the terminals. If no continuity than this maybe the whole of the problem.If these are ok than you need to finish removing the front and tilting top back to pull drum to check ignitor and flame sensor as well ohms of the gas coils.

How do I remove the front panel etc. from a Maytag MDG6700AWW dryer. But not standard Maytag assembly.

This appears to be the Samsung made dryer built for Maytag. Remove the screws for the main top located in the rear left and right, the rest should be down hill from there. This model may have screws one left and one right under the bottom of the front panel too. Pleazer Appliance...

Hi, If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes it is still not working properly. if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....

Problem with the Maytag Neptune MDG6700A Gas Dryer WHEN STARTED HEATS UP THEN NO HEAT AT ALL. MAYTAG MDG6700AWW

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

When the dryer heats for few minutes and then it won't work it means that the thermostat is bad and needs replacement. This part is located on the blower wheel housing inside the duct, you can also check this part for continuity before replacing. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Maytag mdg6700aww gas dryer runs but heat kicks out after 5 min

You have bad coils on your main gas valve . They tend to short (open) after getting warm which cuts off the gas to the burner . After cooling , they will work again for another 5 min until shorting again . Replace the coils (2 in a kit ).
