Replace the gas valve coils on the top of the gas valve body as they get weak and dont have enough force left to pull up on the gas valves in the body to open them,easy and inexpensive to replace,there are 2 coils and one has 2 wires to it and the other has 3 wires so you cant reverse them,also there are alining ping in the coils so you mount them correctly

I am providing some links courtesy of www.repairclinic.com that will assist you in the diagnose/repair of your dryer.

Firstly, ascertain that you have made a positive heat selection on the control panel switch, then proceed onward.

Parts breakdown/disassembly procedures:
http://www.repairclinic.com/Dryer-Gas-Maytag-Style-Appliance-Diagram

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.)

Hi,
When the dryer wont heat it is the thermal fuse that is bad, you can test it with a voltmeter before replacing. This fuse is located inside the rear panel and it cannot be reset.

Hope this will help...

Maytag neptune #mdg6800aww burner lights but wont stay lit after about 15 seconds


Well that could be a blocked vent causing over heat, bad blower wheel, simply cleaning out the dryer and opening up the vent helps a bunch. Ya gotta take the door off first to get in the machine. Then the front comes off then you can check the innards for airflow issues.
this un is electric model but they come apart the same. If the glowbar comes on and the flame sensor shuts down the glowbar ok and flame comes on and runs about 30 seconds that seems to be the norm for this style dryer. The heat does not stay on. Clean it up and put it back together and if it does better ok if it dont then you gonna need to replace the cont stat and gas valve coils.

Where is the thermal cupple on the maytag neptune GAS DRYER MODEL#mdg6800aww


It sounds like the unit is cycling on the thermal limiter. To verify, disconnect the vent from the back of the unit, if this improves and you have longer cycles, then its more than likely just a dirty vent, However, If you disconnect it and it still continues to short cycle then its the hi limit thermostat & it needs to be replaced
