Maytag Dryer not producing heat


Might be a fuse due to a clogged lint buildup or possibly a bad blower wheel itself. On a gas dryer the fuse only kills the gas assembly. The motor will still work and the dryer will still operate with a blown fuse. If it heats a little bit and quits it could very well be the solenoids.

Maytag dryer (model MDG5500AWW) will not heat.


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...

WORKING BUT NO HEAT MDG5500AWW


remove the exhaust tube from the rear of the dryer and try again for heat. If it works the tubing needs to be cleaned out thoroughly., Also upon starting you should her a click which is the ignitor firing up the burner. If not heard within one minute the ignitor is at fault

Maytag Neptune MDG5500AWW gas dryer ignites, then flame goes out


The 'radiant sensor/ needs to be replaced. This sensor tells the system that the flame is lit and everything is good. Go to repairclinic.com
