Question about Maytag MDG3600BW Gas Dryer
I actually have a Maytag MDG4000BWW gas dryer. I couldn't find that model listed. After a few heating cycles - igniter glows then burner ignites - the igniter glows but I hear a sound that I can only describe as pouring tacks down a metal drainpipe. The burner doesn't ignite and the igniter shuts off. This behavior is repeated until I let the dryer rest (cool down?). Then the burner will ignite a few times again until I hear this sound. This strange sound starts after I hear the relay click for the igniter. I cleaned the dryer vent and lint filter. Any Ideas? Thanks, Stick87
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.
