Question about Maytag Neptune MDG5500AW Gas Dryer
Dryer will run and dry normally. Then it will not dry. Took off front panel to inspect...observe igniter...did not glow. Unplugged dryer, waited 1min, plugged in dryer...igniter glowed.. gas ignited.. dried clothes.
If opened dryer to inspect clothes.. then dryer restarts... no igniter glow.
Again unplug dryer, wait, plug in, igniter will glow..and gas ignites dries clothes.... any thoughts??

Your dryer has a safety feature that it will not run or heat when the door is opened. It is so no gas fumes are exhauseted into your home. Once the safety is engaged, It will not allow the dryer to restart for a short while. It should clear itself after only a few minutes. Hope this helps, good luck.

If the dryer is not drying the clothes then you would need to check for the following things-
1. Inspect the fuses and circuit breakers they may have burned out or tripped. Usually, dryer will still tumble but not create heat if a fuse or a circuit breaker is not working.
2. Check for the amp reading at 240 V, it should have reading of 24, 21 and 3 amp (approx.) for 2 lines and neutral respectively.
3. Heating element may have turned or the connection to the element might be loose. Sometimes a shorted circuit element will keep on blowing the fuse or circuit breaker.
4. Motor wiring shorting to ground.
Hope this helps...
