Ignition works but doesn't stay on long enough to heat dryer


its either the hi-limit switch is weak on the burner tube,or the gas valve coils on the gas valve are weak and can no longer keep the gas valve open to supply gas,if they appear warm after operation they are most likely bad

I have a Maytag dryer MDG6200AWW and at first the machine dried the clothes fine but never shut off. The second load got hot but not long enough to dry whole load. The timer does not advance at all. ...


Remove the front panel to get to the gas valve. To remove the panel remove both screws holding the door hinges and the screws on the opposite side from the hinges across the door opening.
Remove the metal bracket holding gas valve coils.
Replace both gas valve coils, part number 279834.

Good luck,

Maytag Neptune Dryer taking hours to dry a load


Hello Friend, Your solution is simple. It sounds like your dryer is working properly, and your actual problem is a blockage somewhere in your 4 inch exhaust tubing. Check it and make sure it is not clogged up with excessive lint. Also if your tubing is clear you need to check your connection where it travels thru the wall etc. It would be a good idea to find the actual location where it exits to the ouside and check for good airflow. Your dryer is equiped with a safety thermistat and if you are not getting the proper exhaust flow the burner will cut off and restart in the manner that your's is doing. I Hope I have helped you, Tim. And please don't forget to give me your rating for my help.

Gas never ignites in any cycle in a 10yr old Kenmore dryer.


Chances are your igniter has gone bad. It must pull atleast 3.2 amps to open the gas valve and ignite the gas. A new igniter could probably purchased for 20 or 30 dollars.
