Maytag gas dryer model#NDG2330AWW heating problem

I removed dryer vent to eliminate that possibility. First time the igniter glows, gas fires and heats properly for several minutes before flame goes out. When ignitor next glows, gas does NOT fire, so ignitor goes out then retries again with same result. I think problem is either ignitor not glowing hot enough or bad sensor. Ideas?

    I read on RepairClinic.com that this might be a problem with the gas valve solenoid coils. Comments?

My maytag dryer is taking more time than usual to dry up clothing. Can anyone help identifying the problem and possible solution? Thank


you have to clean out the dryer and the vent line,unplug the dryer,remove the lint filter and then you need to remove and clean out the duct that the filter slides into,then vac out the cabinet where the motor is,go outside and check the vent,make sure it's clear,then remove the vent line from the back of the dryer,if it's a long vent line i use a leaf blower to blow out the line.also if you have a gas dryer,check it after 15 to 30 minutes to make sure the flame is still igniting,if the gas coils are bad they will fail when they heat up,when they heat up the flame doesn't lite until the coils cool down and your clothes will be warm but wet.you should clean the dryer once a year if it's gas and once every two years if it's electric,gas dryers have an open flame and the lint can catch fire easier than electric dryers,do this and your clothes will dry on time,no fires,save energy and money on your bill.good luck

I have a gas dryer that the igniter plug glows, but does not light the gas. One time when I had the front panel off the gas ignited and the dryer heated, but only burned for a minute then shut off. Now I...


with front off it will short cycle. If ignitor glows and then goes out without lighting, you have bad burner coils. The 2 black round things on burner assembly. Unplug unit then unplug coils and remove bracket with 2 screws. install coils and test.

No heat


Based on your description, it sounds as if your gas valve coils may be malfunctioning. This has consistently been the number 1 failure.

This link shows an image of the coils. You will need to provide the model number off your dryer product ID tag.
Tip:
Model Number Locator Tips
1. A zero in the model number might be the letter O.
2. A lower case L might be a 1.
3. Some models have 3 digits and a period first, like this 555.66666666
Look for an aluminum tag--or a silver and white adhesive label in the locations illustrated below. The model number may be printed or stamped onto the tag and may be printed in different type sizes. NOTE: There may be partial model numbers on marketing stickers or in the owner's manual. These are often incomplete. For best results use the model number from the tag. http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=b4a8i3479&PartID=3479

This link shows parts breakdown and disassembly procedures.
1. http://www.repairclinic.com/Dryer-Gas-Maytag-Style-Appliance-Diagram

Here are some things that could cause your problem.
2. If your dryer doesn't heat, check these:

Igniter
Gas valve coils
Thermal fuse
Igniter Modern gas dryers use an electric igniter to ignite the gas from the gas valve. When it's working properly, the igniter glows bright orange. When it burns out, the dryer tumbles but there's no heat because the gas can't ignite. When the igniter burns out, you need to replace it. If the igniter is held by a tension bracket, you very well may need to replace the bracket too.

The igniter is inside the dryer housing, near the bottom front, usually in a cone-shaped metal tube (the force cone). It's about 2 inches long. It's mounted to the far end of the burner tube, and it has two wires attached to it--or to the tension bracket, if there is one.

Gas valve coils Watch the igniter. Does it glow bright orange, then shut off without igniting the gas? (When the gas ignites there's a large blue flame.) If so, there may be defective coils on the gas valve. Mounted on the top of modern gas valves, there are black electrical coils. The coils, when energized, open the gas valve. If one or more of the coils are defective, the valve doesn't open and the gas cannot ignite. Because it's often difficult to properly test the coils, it's usually best to replace both (all) of them at the same time.

Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing.

If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse to put the dryer back into operation. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.)

There is no heat on Maytag gas drier. I see the ignition glowing but no fire. But some times the fire starts for one minute, then goes off. I am not sure of the model # below,


If the ignitor is glowing, the problem is most likely the gas valve coils. These electrical coils are located right above the gas valves. When energized, these solenoids open the gas valves and permit the burner to light. Due to the difficulty in testing these solenoids, it is recommended that both (all) be replaced at the same time if any are suspected of being faulty. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Gas shuts off/flame off w/in minutes of starting maytag gas dryer


If you did all the things listed, there are only 2 left that will cause the problem. The cycle thermostat located on the exhaust vent and possibly poor airflow. Remove the connecting vent from the rear and try a timed load. If it works repair the vent exhaust problem. Most cycle thermostats include a thermister that could also be defective causing the short cycle. The flame sensor and gas valve coils would have been the number 1 diagnosis. I would need a model number to more specific.

Stops heatinng


Hi, first thing to check is the venting. If the vent is plugged, it will cause the heat to short cycle.
If later in the cycle, the ignitor glows but will not ignite the gas, you will need to change the coils on top the gas valve. This is a common problem.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thanks

After a few heating cycles the burner does not ignite


The problem you are describing is usually associated with a bad gas valve coil. The dryer runs normally until it gets hot, then starts making a strange clicking noise. After it cools down, the dryer runs normally again. The gas valve coils (there are two of them) usually run about $20 a piece. I recommend replacing both of them at the same time just to be sure. I hope this helps.
