Possible clogged venting. Try running without vent attached to see if it improves and let me know. I cannot see your repyl due to some tech issue w/ the site, so it may be a day or so before I can reply again. Please leave feedback for me if appropriate. Thanks

I have a maytag gas dryer (Model DG303) that takes forever to dry clothes. The flame ignites but I don't know how long it stays on. The exhaust tube usually does not get very hot. Most loads take well...


I suspect you have intermittent gas valve coils. These are very common to fail, usually fail intermittently, are inexpensive and easy to replace. You will need to remove the front panel to access them and they are on the LH side once the front is removed. Replace both coils.

you still have a block somewhere.remove the duct that the lint filter slides into,make sure the outside vent is clear and blow out the vent line with a leaf blower,i told this to someone else and they blew a birds nest out of the line and they said the line was clear,also remove the t-stats on the blower wheel housing and check the back of them,sometimes lint and dust gets stuck on the back of them and they don't read right.if that looks fine change out the gas coils but i'd say you have a clog somewhere

Dryer flame on magtag wont stay lit. Pilot flares up but no flame


Thermocouple is probably bad. The pilot burns and heats a sensor which tells the CPU that the Flame can start, and the thermocouple heating up changes voltage with increase temperature and tells the CPU that the Flame is burning OK. If it is defective, there is no voltage change and the CPU assumes that the Flame didn't start for some reason, (Gas only!) and turns if off for safety. Over and over xx times.
