SOURCE: I have a Maytag Legacy gas dryer that won't heat

OK, Crispy... the con census is that the coils have failed. The coil kit you'll need is part number 279834 and can be either purchased on line or at your local appliance parts retailer.


The repair is easy, remove the lower service access panel by removing the two screws located on either side at the very bottom. Then rotate the panel toward you and pull it out.

At the bottom right, you'll see the gas valve. There are 2 round, black coils mounted to it. One of these has 3 wires going to it and the other has 2 wires. You'll also see that they are held down by a brass colored bracket. Remove the wires from the coils and then remove the brass colored bracket with a stubby (short) Phillips screwdriver. NOTE THE POSITION OF THE COILS AND NOTE WHERE THE WIRES GO!

Install the new coils and bracket them down. Install the wires to the coils. Now rebuild the unit.

Easy breezy. Even if you've never done this, you're looking at MAYBE an hour... maybe.

Hope this helps,

Dryer stops in the middle of cycle

The door latch has failed, that's why your dryer stops. When the door opens it stops the drum and turns off. Fix the latch.

Maytag electic dryer noise

First, pop up the top of the dryer -- use a large slotted screwdriver under each corner of the top. There will be screws holding the front of the dryer -- take these out and take the front off. The squealing is coming from roller bushings which need lubricating. Apply machine oil to all the axles/bushings -- this most likely will stop the squealing -- and don't forget to unplug it first.
