I have a neptune mdg5500aww dryer, goes on, glowing igniter... but does not turn on the gas... what is wrong


Hello,

Their are 2 possible things wrong;

1) Does the igniter just stay on or does it glow and go off usually within 1 minute?..if the igniter just stays on and never goes off the FLAME SENSOR will be the problem
here is what the flame sensor looks like oldtech2332_86.jpg
2) if the igniter does glow then go off but no flame..the coils that open the gas valve are bad
here is what they look like oldtech2332_87.jpg

The part numbers are;

FALME SENSOR 338906

GAS VALVE COILS 279834

The parts could be ordered from your local appliance parts store or online at;
searspartsdirect.com
apdepot.com
partselect.com

I have a Maytag Neptune MGD9700A dryer. It is LP.


Most times that is a sign that the gas coils are weaking. I am having a little trouble with your model number so I' not sure what your part numbers will be. Get with me later if you should find the model numer to be different. On Maytag they are inside the door. I am not saying that you are wrong but that I could find only this series MGD9700SB0 One coil should be part number 694540 Coil, 60 Hz. (2 Terminal) (Main) and the other part number 694539 Coil, 60 Hz. (Split) (3 Terminal) (Pilot Position) You can find these valve in a larger photo discription on this page=> Seabreeze Appliance Parts just click on photo to enlarge.

This is the 694540 and you can find Here=> 694540

Maytag Neptune MDG 5500 AWQ heats sporatically


your dryer has a safety feature that it will not run or heat when the door is opened. It is so no gas fumes are exhauseted into your home. Once the safety is engaged, It will not allow the dryer to restart for a short while. It should clear itself after only a few minutes. Hope this helps, good luck.

Maytag Neptune Gas Dryer


You have a Hi-Limit t'stat located at 12 o'clock on the flame shroud. A safety fuse is also located on the flame shroud at 1 o'clock. The flame sensor is located at 9 o'clock on the flame shroud. The Hi-Limit can be temporarily bypasses for a quick check, as well as the fuse, but do 1 at a time. Be sure to unplug the dryer before testing.

If that doesn't help, let me know if you need more assistance.
