Maytag LDG5005AAE Gas Dryer won't heat

The flame on my gas dryer will stay lit for about 15 seconds and then shut off. I've replaced both gas solenoid valves and no change. I've checked the following items for continuity: flame sensor, thermal sensor, high limit switch and cycling thermostat and everything checks out fine. I've cleaned out the vent and there are no obstructions in the vent line. I'm at a loss on what to try next.

SOURCE: Kenmore Dryer only lights gas sporaticly

replace the igniter. The ignitor is the most comon problem with gas appliances checking continuity does not tell you if it is bad or not it has to draw a certain amount of amps to open the gas safty valve and the is no safe way to check this on most gas dryers

SOURCE: mdg2300bww dryer, flame is large hitting high

Hi, A couple of things to look for. Check the 4" vent going to the outside and make sure there is clean. If that is ok, check to see if the blower duct inside the dryer is clean and make sure the blower wheel is turning properly. This model has a problem with the blower wheel coming loose on te motor shaft.
The flame is large because it is not being sucked past the limit switch.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

SOURCE: check continuity on a flame sensor

flame sensor is closed when dark, open with the ignitor light. Thermostat is closed when cold, open when reach temperture. Ignitor is a closed circut but high resistant value, put your meter on 10k. Also to the gas valve 110volts be carefull.

What do I do when error code reads E 15 . Dryer runs for a few seconds than shuts down. I've tested micro switch and i'ts fine.


Post some pictures of your pilot assembly. I think this might be one of them spark sensor deals where the pilot lights and then detects flame then relays that back to the control for igniton verification. OR just try and clean up the electrode with steel wool and see if the flames stays lit is what I would try.

Ignition works but doesn't stay on long enough to heat dryer


its either the hi-limit switch is weak on the burner tube,or the gas valve coils on the gas valve are weak and can no longer keep the gas valve open to supply gas,if they appear warm after operation they are most likely bad

Hello,

What your describing sounds pretty much like the sympthons of weak coils that open the gas valve. It is a fairly common thing that happens with gas dryers so i have written a tip that explains in detail what happens when gas valve coils are weak.

Maytag LDG7400 gas dryer does not stay lit long enough to heat the drum. Can see flame turn on for about 10 seconds then back off for 20 to 30 seconds. Continues cycle of on and off until end of time....


Light sensors detect when burners are lit. If they become blocked with lint, dust, etc., they will not detect the flame and, for safety purposes, automatically shut off the gas flow.

Dust and lint are a dryer's worst enemy. Be sure that all sensing devices (particularly optical sensors) are clear of dust and lint so that light can pass unobstructed into the lens.

If they sensors are all clean, they might be defective. Something is erroneously telling your dryer's control that the burners are not lit and thus the gas supply is shut down.

Have a Maytag gas dryer, model#:LDG7314AAE, flame wont stay lit.


Clean/repair your dryer vent. The flame when it exits the funnel should not touch or just barely touch the funnel end. This indicates good airflow. A good test for the clogged/damaged vent is to disconnect the vent hose from the dryer and run it as is. If the flame stays - clean vent. If not - clean air path inside the dryer

Gas dryer not heating properly


This sounds like the flame sensor is bad to me.

If it does not work properly, the unit will shut off for safety. The machine assumes that the burner did not light and rather than run gas into your house, it shuts off. It may try to start a certain number of times and then shut off.

You may be able to remove and clean it (flame sensor) lightly with a scotch brite pad and it may work properly again.

Otherwise it will need replacement.

This is a very common problem and the part is probably in stock.

Post a comment on your progress as this solution is likely to be useful to many people.

Thanks,

Tim

The problem is not the gas valve.

Maytag gas dryer - model unknown - gas wont stay lit


Yes does sound like blockage in the exhaust vent causing the high limit switch to stop the dryer.
