No reset it is a gas safety feature, when the vent was blocked. It should cycle out of it. Once vent is cleared. Like a furnace or any gas appliance the feature is to avoid gas continueing to accumulate. You can try to unplug power to dryer, 5 min plug in and then it should reset just fine. Please if you are worried about anyother possibilities consult a repair person.

I have a maytag Mdg5500. When I turn the dryer on the ignitor glows gas valve opens and I get flame for about 20 seconds and then it shuts down. It will then retry after about 1-2 minutes. Also the...


While i understand that you cleaned the lint build up from the dryer,the problem your experiencing sounds like a airflow issue that is causing the flame to starve for air and the flame is blowing out. In addation to possible lint build up the things that will cause poor airflow are;

The blower wheel being you fell any air flowing out the back of the dryer?

A blocked/crushed vent..if air flow from back of dryer is their airflow close to equal volume of air flow where the vent goes outdoors?

You can disconnect the vent from the rear of the dryer temporarly and see if it works better with the vent off to check it

Good luck,i hope i have been able to help you fix your dryer,

Trouble with Maytag Legacy gas Dryer

Please provide the model number and I will see if I can figure something out.
It sounds like you have covered the common problems. Usually a motor is the cause for this problem, it gets hot and shuts down until it cools off. I have had some problems with the auto dry controls on the Maytags also.
Are you equiped to do some voltage checks if we need too? This would help in knowing where you have power when it quits.

The gas dryer heats then does not heat. The sensor says 99 minutes to dry close. Tried it on timed heat and it dries then stops drying. Sometimes shutting off completely!

Hello,Cheack to make sure your venting is clean and clear..If its blocked the safty thermostat will shut the heat down to prevent overheating.. If the vent is clean i would check the coils.When they start to fail it will heat then not cycle back on..

My dryer keeps shutting off after a few 10 to 13 minutes...and clothes are not drying. An element was changed some time ago. it does heat up but keeps shutting it the timer or element?

Turn the breaker to the dryer completely off and back on again. Also check that nothing is blocking the venting. Remove the vent hose and run the unit if you are not sure. Make sure the lint trap is cleaned first. It probably is neither element nor timer since it is heating and quits without the timer advancing completely.

No matter what settin the dryer is on my clothes will only get a little warm, but won't dry. It won't heat up as usual.Had a load in there for a few hours yesterday. They are still damp. When dry clothes...

You vent could be the problem. Snow blocking the vent can cause the dryer heat to shut down rapidly. Make sure your vent is open to the outside. Get some windex and clean them moisture sensors inside the machine. If a film developes on them then moisture cannot be detected by the control. It might think the clothes are dry and shut her down.

Heat won't stay on, comes on for a minute and shuts off

you could have a blocked vent line,try removing the vent line from the back of the dryer,also clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,also if the ignitor is glowing but no gas you could have bad gas coils,part number 279834 but check to see if you have something blocked up from lint,the dryer should be cleaned out and blow out the vent line with a leaf blower once a year

No heat in gas dryer, gas good, elec good??

if the heat is on when the dryer is cold then shuts down after 15 to 30 minutes and doesn't lite for a long while you have bad gas coils,the gas should come on until it hits temp. then it shuts down,when the dryer calls for heat it will turn back on,if it stays on for short periods of time you might need to clean out the dryer,this will shut the gas down to soon,you need to clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,blow out the vent line,make sure the air is blowing outside with nothing blocking it and vac out the inside of dryer where the motor is

Maytag dryer ldg7500 - gas continually turns on & off, no heat

Could be a number of things....
The ignitor is bad and it will not keep pulling enough current to hold the gas vavle on.
The dryer cycling thermostat is bad and is cycling it too, shutting the gas valve down too soon before it can run long enough and then turning it right back on.
The vent is blocked or plugged and the air gets too hot to fast.
The high limit switch has gone bad doing the same thing as if the cycling stat goes bad.
Fan/blower is bad and bot moving enough air...same symptoms as blocked vent...
Need to start eliminating the possiblities one by one...

I have a maytag gas dryer,The dryer throws the flame but to the minute or less it is cut, that can be.

Good day,
Many reasons but commonly the vent system is completely blocked. Remove the vent hose from the back, and see if that corrects the problem.
If not,
Maytags are good for shearing off the shaft of the blower wheel causing that problem.
I'm asuming if you shut the machine off, and let it cool down for an hour or two, it will refire.
