    Troubleshooting the Sensor-Dry circuit: • Check for incorrect wiring of the electrical connector at the electronic control board. Dryer runs for 2 minutes, jumps to a 1-minute cool down and then stops. Open Sensor Dry circuit. Check Sensor Bar. Refer to Sensor Bar Diagnostics section. • Dryer does not shut off. Check sensor for continuity. If found, replace sensor bar or clean with alcohol. Some fabric softener sheets will coat the sensor bars.

Our Maytag Neptune gas dryer runs but no heating of the air either on sensor dry mode or timed drying we have cleaned out the lint tripa etc and it does not seem to change anything


Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.



if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....



If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.
