SOURCE: MAYTAG MDG6200 AWW flame keeps keeping going out

Your thermostat is broken.
I think the gas 5 wire or the heat limit
FOR THESE PARTS LINK
or what i would check first is the fuse on the blower housing which is a thermal fuse. A regulat ohm meter /resistance meter can do the trick. No resistance should be measured or very low on this fuse. If uninfinit restistance this one is broken.
It can also be the limit thermostat . Measure when cold. > low resistance.
This is another link for PARTS
Good luck

SOURCE: the heat (gas flame) goes out after dryer has been

There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance. Replace the defective thermostat.

This could also be caused by a bad set of coils as well. the problem is probably with defective coils (black, located on top of the gas valve). It is recommended to replace all coils (usually two or three) if found defective.

Note: Sometimes the whole gas valve may be defective, thus not letting the gas out. However, this problem is not common.

**The most common problem spot here will be a defective set of gas valve coils.

Below are some links, courtesy of www.repairclinic.com, that will assist you in diagnosing/repair of your dryer. You may have to enter your model number in the search box to access some of the information.

Below is a parts breakdown/disassembly procedures for your dryer.
http://www.repairclinic.com/Dryer-Gas-Maytag-Style-Appliance-Diagram


The link below shows an image of the gas valve coils, which is the most common failure component in the system.

1. Gas Valve Coils:
http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-MDG3000AWW-%3d%3di3479&PartID=3479

Below are some tips to follow if the coils are not faulty.

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.)

My kenmore gas dryer ignites and the flame shuts off after 10 sec


The valve on the pilot may need to be replaced. The springs get worn and wont stay up. Otherwise you could replace the entire pilot unit with a kit.
