Turn it off!! Now!! there should never be sparks in a washer or dryer. Get a qualified electrician to check it out before you power it up again.

DOESN'T HEAT


Could be bad heat element. Lift top of dyer, or look from back side with access panel removed, or look thru door if glass door while dryer is running on a heat cycle. You should be able to see red glow of heat element coming on. If not then you will need to open up dyer and remove drum. Inspect heat element for break in coil or coils touching each other or metal frame of dryer. You can also use an ohm meter and read the restence of the coil ...should be just a couple of ohms.
If it is a bad coil you should be able to replace fairly easy. If it is not coil than you will need to check themistor or cycle control switch. Hope this helps.

I looked through the peep hole in front of my gas dryer and I don't see anything lit.Dryer spins great, but doesn't heat up. What is the problem?


Igniter - The dryer's igniter is what ignites the gas that has entereddryer-ignitor.jpg through the gas valve. It will glow red, then when it reaches a certain temperature, it will trigger a thermostat that opens up the gas valve and that's when the dryer starts to heat the air. If the igniter has failed, the motor will still run but not produce any heat.

Dryer is not heating up it runs does the ignitor heat up before gas valve opens because the ignitor never heats up


On my gas appliances, either there is a pilot light or the ignitor sparks (like a car spark plug) or glows after the gas valve opens. The ignitor does not heat up.

I've had some gas appliances that have had the valve stick. (On an oven, we tested this by tapping on the valve when the unit should have called for gas. This confirmed that the valve was bad and not the thermostat.)

I hope this helps.

Dryer is running but not heating. Looking for reset button. Can't find it.


if the dryer is running but not heating, then it has to do with the heating element or the thermofuse. You will need to take the dryer apart:
1) unplug dryer
2) open door remove screws
3) with a flat tip screw driver pry gently up on the top corners it will pop
4) move front panel forward and disconnect door switch
5) sit panel aside
6) lift top lid of dryer 90 degrees it has clip/hinged on back
7) look to the right back of dryer, it looks like a spring in a metal box disconnect and replace.
Hope this helps Tim

Maytag Atlantis MDE6200AYW will run, but no heat


Check to make sure that you have the proper voltage running to the dryer first. Next you may have a problem with your heating element or with your thermal fuse. Get your dryer opened up so you can see your heating element. Run the dryer and if you see the heating element come on and then turn right back off again then you have a bad thermal fuse. If it doesn't come on at all though then the heating element is bad. Both parts can be picked up at your local appliance repair shop. Just make sure to unplug the dryer before replacing the part. If you have any other questions let me know and let me know if this was helpful for you. Good luck.
