Matag dryer not heating


Here is a link to maytag dryer repairs http://apcoappliancerepair.wordpress.com/?s=maytag+dryer . The most common problem is the thermal fuse. My question is. Does the heating element start to light. If not...... and you have changed the ignitor and thermal fuse. Then check the flame sensor to see if there is continuity threw it. Power to the gas coils and ignitor runs threw the flame sensor. CLICK HERE to see a flame sensor on a GE dryer. They are the same on most units but Maytag will be on the opposite side of burner chamber.

My matag gas dryer wont heat on any setting.


On a gas dryer the exhaust duct fuse mounted right next to the control T-stat kills the power to the gas assembly if the blower is restricted or worn out. A common problem with these dryers. If power is indeed getting to the gas assembly I would first check for continuity of the flame sensor switch mounted on the side of the burner area. It's job is to allow the ignitor to fire up when power is delivered to the gas assembly from the control t-stat on that blower housing. The flame sensor has to open when the ignitor reaches 1800f. At that point in time the ignitor becomes a thermocouple even with no power going to it it allows continuity through the coils so that they will get energy enough to yank open the gas valve. While the ignitor is glowing it is hogging all that power and the coils simply cannot pull the valve open. Sometimes a gas dryer will work a little then quit. that would be thos coils on the gas valve are weak. They get hot and fail. To get into the dryer you must first remove the door so that you can next get the front panel off. That will revieal the top holdown clips you remove. Then you can get the shroud off and remove the drum. I bet you would like a service manual for this beast:

Matag dryer lde412 not heating elec


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.


check out this electric no heat tip...

Matag Legacy gas dryer sometimes it will not heat. Doesn't sound like it's trying to burn. So am guessing it's something to do with getting the signal to light the burner.

I have a matag neptune gas dryer and it does not heat up but turns I am not sure the year of it . It is digital


The heat will not turn on for a few reasons or possibly just one
First remove the exhaust duct work and clean thoroughly
Any lint build up will cause the moister sensor to put the burner in check
Also after you had cleaned it and still no heat, listen for the spark ignitor to click when first turned on. That ignites the burner. If no clicking is heard the spark ignitor is at fault. If it does work the moister sensor is at fault instead

Matag gas dryer does not shut off. Is it the sensor?


Hello, I would say if the timer keeps going around and around. I would say you have a bad timer.

After first Ignition cycle igniter stays on too briefly to open gas valve gas.


Valid Most likely the problem with your dryer is the coils for the gas valve. Remove the access door (on the bottom right side on the front panel) and you can see the gas valve with three coils on top of it. They are coming as a kit with complete instruction. The part number for this kit is AP2669614.You can buy it here http://click.linksynergy.com/fs-bin/click?id=SrmyP8LkIos&offerid=92089.542517043&type=10&subid=
