Question about Maytag Neptune MDG5500AW Gas Dryer
Heat goes on within a few seconds of starting the dryer, but then goes off and doesn't seem to go back on. Dryer keeps tumbling, but clothes don't dry due to no heat. I already cleaned the vent and replaced the cycling thermostat, hi limit thermostat, thermal fuse on blower housing, and temp control thermistor. None of that worked? What else could it be? Thank you.
Q - My gas dryer will not heat, what could stop my dryer from heating?
A - Things that could stop a gas dryer from heating:
- glow bar igniter, thermal fuse ( not all models ), coils on the gas valve, gas valve, thermostats,motor heat switch, timer, selector switch, sensor.
