Question about Maytag Dryers

Maytag gas dryer fires, then shuts down

I have a Maytag quiet series 100 dryer. the last time I used it, there was no heat. I took the front panel off to check the igniter. It fired and the gas valve opened and I got flame. It ran for abut a minute, then the dryer shut down and wouldn't restart. After waiting 30 minutes, it still won't restart. I have lights on the panel, if I push the dial to start, the pause light comes on like normal. Whattaya think? Ken

Maytag quiet series 100


when on time dry the dryer counts down like a clock,when on auto or more or less the heat comes on until hot then when the heat cycles off the timer will avance,when it calls for heat the timer stops advancing and the heat will come on again until clothes are dry.so you either have no heat,bad sensor or you can try wiping it off,if you use cling free sheets the sensor can get a film on it and then can't sense the clothes,try hitting it with sos or something that will clean it.do you have heat and is it gas or electric,if you can send model number it would be helpful

MAYTAG GAS DRYER NOT HEATING


That sounds to me like you need to replace the coils. They get intermittent with age. Work some then quit take a long time to cool down and work a little more when going bad.

My maytag dryer does not get hot how can i fix it the model number is dg212 series 01


We bought this machine last year, converted it to propane & have loved it. All of a sudden there is no ignition ( fire). I have taken off the front & cleaned everthing I could see. Still no fire. I have check the gas supply, the drum is spinning, the only thing I think I heard last year right after it started and right before the "FIRE" was a clicking sound? What ever you might sugest would be greatly appriecated! Thank You, Don Wagner Jr @ SmoothSeal1@aol.com
