Clean your dryer vent going from the back of the dryer to outside also run a lint brush down where you put the lint screen in if this does not help replace your coils

how long is dryer vent run ? does it go up or out to the side ? Sounds like the dryer vent is clogged. A long run on your vent will also cause this problem with a small amount of lint. Try cleaning out your lint screen on the dryer vent they can get pretty caked up with lint. If you have a long dryer vent run post back the length and direction and I will get you the maximum length for your specific run. You may need a booster fan if it is excessively long or straight up as through the roof.

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 performa poropane dryer. It states the input rating at18000 btu per hour. I have a 5/8 inch OD flexible gas line at 48inches long it is rated for 75001 to106000 btu/hr . Is this the right...


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

There is nothing wrong with using a larger flexible gas line than is required. We used the 5/8 OD lines most of the time as they were much more durable than the smaller ones. The line you have is fine.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Your dryer most likely has a bad: 1. Hi Limit thermostat 2. Heater Element 3. Thermostat. You will need a meter to check these. No quick fix. Sorry.

Maytag performa gas dryer appliance gets hot but have to cycle clothes 2 times to get dry, have vacuumed out lint trap and exit vent any ideas thanks.


Hi, it sounds like you have covered most bases. One other thing I would check is total airflow. Outside, where the dryer exhaust leaves the building it should be unobstructed, If there is a flap or louvers they should open freely. You should be able to feel the warm air when you put your hand at the vent. If aiflow is good, the thermostat may be defective.

How to replace heating element Maytag Performa gas dryer pyg2300aww?


Your model number indicates a gas dryer. It does not have a heating element. It has a glowbar igniter,a flame sensor and a gas valve. Either the glowbar igniter is bad or the flame sensor or the gas valve coils or the thermal fuse.

Dryer not heating as it should. Gets warm, but takes several cycles to dry clothes


Could be 2 things... either your heat source is out of repair or your vent is blocked. Since you say it only gets warm I'll assume the problem is with the gas coils inside the unit. These parts are replaceable
