Question about Maytag Dryers

1 Answer

Dryer flame shuts off after about 30 seconds

My Maytag dryer model MDG9700AWW has a flame for only about 30 seconds.Everything else keeps running (drum does not stop turning) but the clothes do not get dried up.
I do not know if it is the igniter or thermostat or something else.

Thank you !!

This sounds like a clogged vent more than a thermostat. go outside with the dryer running and see if hot air is blowing out the vent. if not check outside vent for birds nest etc, inside make sure the vent is straight any dips in vent could cause water to build up clogging the vent. try this first if it doesn't work write back

A Maytag dryer model MDG9700AWW that wont heat. I've checked both coils, replaced ignitor, high limit, both thermistors and the flame sensor. All appear good. there's no voltage at the ignitor when...


If there is no voltage at the ignitor, some safety device is prohibiting it. If the coils are good, it's being prevented by the control board or the first solenoid of the gas valve.

Maytag gas dryer LDG7500AAL flame won't stay on longer than about 5 seconds.


The resistance is too weak in the hot surface ignitor to keep the gas valve open and requires replacement.

My Maytag gas dryer model LDG9801AAL has irregular heating. The flame is not 100% bluish even after I cleaned the igniter glowbar. I already changed the dryer sensor but the flame keeps getting shut off...


if the flame is liting the ignotor is good,if the flame goea out after a minute or so then you have to clean out the dryer,unplug it,clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,clean out the cabinet where the motor is and if the vent line is a long run i use a leaf blower to blow it out,pull it off the back of the dryer,stick the leaf blower into the vent and blow all the lint outside.one more thing if the flame lites and after 10 to 30 minutes thee flame doesn't lite anymore you have bad gas coils you can remove the cover down on the bottom right side of the front panel to check this,also you should clean this dryer at least once a year so you don't have a fire and your clothes will dry on time,pull the vent line off the back and see if it runs any better but you still have to clean the lint filter duct too,the block could be in there,bad air movement will cause this to happen.let me know how you make out.

one of the thermal sensors may be bad.
you may also have a faulty ignitor even though it glows it maynot be drawing enough current to keep the regulator open

Whirlpool model GGQ8858EQ1 gas dryer starts, gets flame and begins heating. then after a short while flame shuts off and i hear a chattering noise somewhere near the bottom of dryer. It lasts for about...


The problem is your gas valve solenoids (coils). There are usually two of them mounted on the burner assembly. One is the MAIN coil, the other is the SECONDARY coil. It is recommended that you replace BOTH of them at the same time. Replacements can be purchased on line at appliancepartspros.com. Just type in the model number you provided and look under the "Burner Assembly" section for items 13 and 14. I hope this helps you.
