SOURCE: My Maytag dryer won't dry clothes.

Pull the dryer out away from the wall. Unhook the vent from the dryercompletely. Do not put anything over the dryer exhaust on the back ofthe dryer. Do a normal load with the vent unhooked. If it dries betteror ok like this then the problem is in the dryer venting. Like ablocked vent pipe or a smashed or restricted vent hose.
If the vent doesn't make a difference,then check the blower wheel for excessive lint build up, check thatthere isn't anything stuck to the air intake baffle inside the drum,(i.e. the screen on the back wall of the dryer when looking into thedrum). Check the lint filter chute for blockage. Check that the heatingelement isn't shorted to ground. Check the exhaust temperature of the dryer. A meat or pocket thermomter can be used for this. It should cycle between 120 degrees and 160 degrees. Check that the drum seals are not worn out.

SOURCE: Maytag Atlantis MDG8400AWW Dryer Runs Cool

I had a similar problem years back. It was the ignitor. The ignitor is a ceramic like piece that heats up (glows red) that ignites the gas. Typically when that goes, you will see some white residue build up where it cracked, thus breaking the electrical connection. This thing works like a heating element on an electric stove, but rougher looking.

The part was about $30 at my local parts store. I bought an extra one just in case so I have it on hand. I installed it with common tools.

You can check it to see if you lost connection by using a volt meter.

Good luck.

SOURCE: Maytag dryer mdg9206bww runs but will nto get hot.

This most likely has a "Glow Rod" type of igniter for the gas, along with a photosensitive glow/flame detector. Most glow rods are ceramic with an electrically conductive coating that makes them a resistive element. They will last until the ceramic breaks. Be careful with it, if it's not broken, it is very fragile, and so is the replacement.

SOURCE: Maytag DG482 Dryer Won't Heat

The heat is regulated with a Klixon mounted next to the blower housing near the vent pipe so it can judge the temperature of the air coming out of the drum.Right next to it is a melting type fuse. If the dryer runs and gets too hot the fuse will melt.But the dryer will still run. So if the fuse is good(continuity) and the dryer control(cycle) thermostat is also good then you should have power going to the gas valve assembly when the machine is running unless the timer is in the no heat or wrinkle free/cool down mode. When the gas valve assembly is energized the flame sensor a%20flame%20sensor%202.bmp flame sensor mounted outside the burner chamber detects the heat from the ignitor. When the heat is very intense then the sensor shuts down the ignitor
a%20igniter.jpg Ignitor and that frees up the power so that the coils can be fully energised and open the gas gates. The gas comes out and hits the red hot igniter and you have ignition. It stays on for maybe 2 or 3 minutes or until the control thermostat is satisfied and shuts down power to the gas valve assembly. So... If your gas dryer has a good flame sensor and a good igniter AND the dryer will work some and quit, replace these: dryer%20coil%20kit.jpg Gas operator coils
part# 279834
The coils get hot and quit on these machines when they get a little age on them. It is aggrevating because it is a hard to diagnose thing. But well worth the 20 bucks. SOURCE

Hello, my dryer MDE5500AYW won't dry on a cool temperature. It is an electric dryer


You buy no parts

You diagnose the problem
to find something wrong

How about looking in the owners manual
& follow the trouble chart

I do not know about Maytag Dryers, but the washers
have a diagnostic manual in a bag under the cabinet,
they don't want you to find,your dryer may also.

I have a maytag dryer. It run good, and dry OK. The clothes get very hot, and the top of the dryer gets very hot on top even when it is in the cool down cycle.


Please check your exhaust. My guess is it is clogged. While you are checking for a clog, please replace your plastic hose with a flexible metal hose if so equipped.

Check the entire exhast system from the lint filter to the outside vent. Clean it with a shop vac if you can.

I hope this helps you ...

Maytag electric dryer will not run


belt around the drum is broken. The light you see is the glow of the heating element. No air flow will cause heater to get red hot. Danger!
