Question about Maytag Neptune MDG5500AW Gas Dryer
For the right price, you can do almost anything but the cost to convert a gas dryer top electric would exceed the cost to just buy a replacement electric dryer.. I wouldn't advise it...
Sorry my friend...

i don't think you can convert the gas dryer to an electric dryer.
there are so many issues to consider.
1 the contacts of the timer would be a big problem,
2 the heating element wiring uses big wires where as the existing wires are very small to handle the big current of the heaters.
3 the configuration of extra part that you would have such as the gas solenoids, the ignite r, the flame sensor, etc which electric dryer does not have.
so bottom line is..... can not convert.
tnx 4 using fixya,

A gas dryer is dedicated to the use of gas to supply its heating function. It works on 125 volts. No way can a gas dryer become an electric one. UNLESS!
you just want to hang out yer clothes under the sun and use the dryer as a way to fluuf up yer clothes OR you could place the dryer into a box and make a condenser dryer out of it. Like cool hand luke you will toss that dryer into a rigid metal box in direct sunlight so that it can be an unbearable 140 degree up in there. then grab yer clothes and toss em in there and close that tar paer lined tin box up my friend.Let the sun do its thang. I think i just invent the redneck dryer! we don't need no stinking gas. Green power to the people! LOL

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
you dryer is gas check out this gas
If you have an electric dryer, you can
have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to
out this electric
