You have a gas leak from the gas valve being faulty. DO NOT use the dryer until you have replaced the valve! I have been doing appliance repair for 15 years and I have seen 7 homes that have burned down due to this very same problem. Please don't use the dryer! Here is the new gas valve to order.
Keep me posted!

SOURCE: Maytag dryer does not maintain heat and clothes smell

Save yourself the repair call and replace the gas coils. They're a $30 part and it takes all of five minutes. Works like a charm.

SOURCE: MAYTAG GAS DRYER TUMBLES BUT NO HEAT (FRONT LOADER 6 YRS. OLD)

Hello maryfitgera,
It certainly sounds like you are not getting a flame established in your dryer. That can be one of several components such as a non-resettable thermal fuse, gas valve assembly or control relay to that gas valve assembly. Unless you are well versed on how to work on these kinds of components, I suggest you just call in an appliance tech or.. let me know if you want to attempt diagnosing and repairing it yourself. Be advised that there are elements of danger in so doing. Let me know how you want to procede on this and I'd be happy to walk you thru it..
Regards,
Rick

SOURCE: maytag gas dryer MDG6400AWW heats up for 2 minutes

turn gas off to dryer. For safety it is best not to wait get your gas company to find leak(i don't think they charge for that)if it is at the control valve you should take the screws that hold the coils down out.Remove coils and rubber O rings and replace all with new ones it comes as a kit

Smell gas inside maytag dryer when i open door . not commimg from piping leading to dryer


Your exhaust to the outside of the house is restricted some where between dryer and wall to the outside. If the vent is restricted then it cannot exhaust the fumes, heat and moisture to the outside of your home like iit needs to do.

The pilot light isn't on and wont light up, no smell of gas either. The dryer was working normal I thought, open the door and the clothes weren't dry.


You will need to replace the Thermocouple. You can purchase one at your local hardware store, the instructions will be with it. Very easy to repalce.

Internal gas leak of Maytag MDG5500AWW


if the flame is not a clear blue,rather an orange/blue or orange, the gas is not being completely combusted, either the burner orfice tube needs cleaning or the air to gas ratio is off and needs more air intake and this can be adjusted also
