Remove the vent from the rear of the dryer.
With no clothes in the dryer and the dryer set for hi heat run the dryer several minutes.
With a accurate thermometer check the exhaust vent temperature.
It should be 135 to 160 degrees.
If it is, you are OK. Just need to clean your vent and connecting tubing.
If not, replace your gas valve coils.

Where are the hold down clips on a mdg6200aww Maytag dryer?

Hi Willey:
No photo handy but,
The clips are located through the slot on the front of the unit.
They're close to the edges.
If you slide a drywall knif into the slot you will feel them. Just push them in and lift the top at the same time.

Need to relight pilot light on MDG6200AWW gas dryer.

That unit has an electronic ignitor. You should not have to lite the pilot. There is no pilot to lite. If the dryer is taking longer then normal to heat. Check your vent to the outside. If the ignitor is not turning on it could be the ignitor, flame sensor and or thermal fuse. Check D.I.Y. Appliance Repair Troubleshooting to see if there is anything that can help you there.

On my maytag model MDG6200AWW gas dryer. It doesnt heat up. I see wehre some people say the ignitor glows orange. Where is the ignitor and I don't see anything heating up. Where do I look

On your dryer to see whats going on with the igniter you need to remove the front panel and see whats happening. To remove the frony panel remove the screws on the door hinge and the screws on the other side if the door was hinged on that side and pull the front panel off. The burner asm. will be on the right side of the base frame.

I have a Maytag dryer MDG6200AWW and at first the machine dried the clothes fine but never shut off. The second load got hot but not long enough to dry whole load. The timer does not advance at all. ...

Remove the front panel to get to the gas valve. To remove the panel remove both screws holding the door hinges and the screws on the opposite side from the hinges across the door opening.
Remove the metal bracket holding gas valve coils.
Replace both gas valve coils, part number 279834.

Good luck,

My maytag autodry dyer mdg6200aww begins by heating up but the gas flame goes out after a minute or two.I checked for continuity on both the thermal fuse and radiant sensor and both checked out ok.

Continuity on the radiant sensor should be "closed" at startup, but it must also open after it has sensed the heat from the ignitor or flame.

The ignitor could be cracked and opening up after it heats up for awhile, also it's connectors might be loose/oxidized, clean them and reconnect after checking the ignitor.

Last thing to check is continuity on the gas valve coils. These two frequently go bad, especially the one with two contacts rather than three.

The set of two coils is about $10,00 on ebay. buy them and install. Even if you don't need them now, you will eventually need them. They are nearly a consumable item.
