Question about Miele Dryers
My 2 yr old Maytag Neptune gas dryer mod # MDG9700AWW does not get hot. The gas is
on but the dryer does not light? Is their anything I should check before I call
for service? And if I must call for service who is reputable in the souther california area?
It's ironic that when I purchased the set I added insurance on the washer only thinking the
dryer would be pretty fail safe! HA..... This is the third time the dryer has failed on me yet
the washer is doing fine. Dont figure!!!!!!!!!!!!
Anyhow Thanks for any help you can render?

rule number one take everything off of it and never store clothes or anything that can insulate the top it overheats them. It kind of fools all your sensors when you store stuff on top

There is a door catch on the body. Try spreading it out. put a slotted screw driver in it and open the catch just a bit. If that doesn't work, then you need to get a catch assembly. It's less than $10 and takes 5 minutes to put in. good luck :)

there is a reservoir in the base of the dryer which holds some condensing water prior to the pump pumping it to the holding tank at the top this has a float swith to tell the pump to come on and drain water to top tank this is probably stuck in the on position so the machine thinks it is always full of water and its waiting for you to empty it,you need to remove side panel and remove flost switch to clean, remove condenser and put youre hand in back of unit if its still very wet in there thats the problem should be bone dry at end of cycle.
hope this helps

If your dryer is STILL heating, but your dryer is showing signs of heavy condensation or longer dry times, you may want to check the dryer interior cabinet and/or the entire run of the exhaust ducting from where it exits your dryer to the point where it leaves your home to ensure you have no kinks, clogs, or excessive bends. As the dryer exhausts, moisture from your clothing is circulated with the warm air. If you have any restrictions in the exhaust system, the moisture will collect inside the ducting and drum. The following link explains many of the common problems that can cause poor drying efficiency and longer dry times:
Before assuming you have a problem with the appliance, check your installation to ensure you are providing the dryer with proper exhaust and air flow. This is the NUMBER ONE cause of poor drying efficiency. A dryer in a clogged state, or having improper air flow, will not dry efficiently and will cause the heating circuits to overheat. Eventually, this can lead to component failures and is the source of many fire hazards. If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.
