    I have the same issue. Gas ignites and blows heat into rolling drum, but then goes out after 15 seconds. How can you tell if it's the Radiant Sensor or weak gas valve coil

No dryer heat


If the coils are bad the unit will light with flame for 4 - 8 times then all of a sudden the ignitor will glow, kick off with no gas coming threw valve. it sounds like the high limit thermostat is short cycling the flame. This is the thermostat that sits on top of the burner chamber. remove 1 screw from the thermostat and blend it upwards away from the heat. Then plug unit back in and test to see if the flame stays on longer. Click here to see maytag dryer no heat posts. Contact me anytime here. Hope this helps..

Gas maytag dryer not heating up


check the thermal fuse in the dryer vent duct to be open,then if not the flame eye" radiant sensor" or the high-limit thermostat both on the burner tube if the sensor doesn't see(sense) a flame the gas valve will stay shut,then check the gas valve coils,both the BOOST and SECONDARY coil valves on the gas valve body as these can open up and not gas into the burner

Burners won`t stay lit.........


There are several possible causes for this. Bad flame sensor, bad thermostat switch, blocked air vent, or bad gas coils.

Igniter works fine but there is no flame so therefore no heat


Replace the coils on this burner assembly. this will fix this issue you are having at this time.

The coils open and close the valves, which are responsible for gas flow. these coils are damaged.

After a few heating cycles the burner does not ignite


The problem you are describing is usually associated with a bad gas valve coil. The dryer runs normally until it gets hot, then starts making a strange clicking noise. After it cools down, the dryer runs normally again. The gas valve coils (there are two of them) usually run about $20 a piece. I recommend replacing both of them at the same time just to be sure. I hope this helps.
