SOURCE: mdg2300bww dryer, flame is large hitting high

Hi, A couple of things to look for. Check the 4" vent going to the outside and make sure there is clean. If that is ok, check to see if the blower duct inside the dryer is clean and make sure the blower wheel is turning properly. This model has a problem with the blower wheel coming loose on te motor shaft.
The flame is large because it is not being sucked past the limit switch.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Check the voltage to the switch when turned to high and the power button pushed on. If you are not getting any power there then the setting switch is bad replace it at repairclinic.com

SOURCE: The dryer runs but no

Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.



if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....



If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.



check out this electric no heat tip...

Gas dryer is not drying the clothes


it can be the ignitor as described above,or the gas valve coils on the gas valve getting weak or gone completely,or even the high limit thermostat on the burner housing open and also the flame sensor next to the high limit but these rarely go bad,the thermal fuse can be bad but on these if this goes out the whole unit quits and it sounds as though it still turns just no heat

No heat


it could be the thermal fuse on the dryer vent housing open,the radiant sensor or high limit thermostat on the burner tube housing,the ignitor on the burner that glows to ignite the gas,or the boost and secondary gas valve coils on the gas valve that open the gas valve to supply gas to the burner,all items need to be accessed thru the removal of the front cover and checked with an ohmmeter for continuity or resistance

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

Heat


it could be your radiant flame sensor on the burner tube that senses the flame,or it could be bad boost and secondary gas valve coils on the gas valve located inside the unit,a defective high-limit or cycling thermostat on the burner tube,any one or combination of these can cause your symptoms
