It sounds like the drum bearings are seizing up preventing the drum from rolling easily, and when the motor runs, it can't pull the drum belt around the drum that won't turn, so starts squealing and burning the belt.

You need to lubricate/replace the drum bearings, and replace the belt.

Mdg3000aww gas dryer. drum turns. ignitor glows and goes off but no flame.


I suppose you made sure the gas is on. The valve probably has two valve coils sitting on top; one is a dual coil. My guess is that one coil is "open" (no continuity).

Dryer will not start after running the 1st load through


HI, Your motor is going bad. It is overheating and the overload safety will not let it start. The motor cost is about $140.00
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

MORE TIMES THAN NOT, WHEN I HAVE SEEN THIS PROBLEM, IT TAKES A NEW MOTOR TO CORRECT THIS SITUATION. MAKE SURE EVERYTHING MOVES FREELY BEFORE CONDEMNING THE MOTOR THOUGH.

Maytag gas dryer runs, doesn't dry


Check in the hole where the screen goes for blockage. Many times debries falls in there when removing screen. It cant make it out of the vent so it builds up and clogs the vent.
