Maytag Gas Dryer won't stay lit

I have a Neptune gas dryer. It will light up, but only stays lit for 5-10 seconds. The dryer is still running and I hear a click sound like it is wanting to light again but doesn't. If I stop the dryer, then push the start button, it will light again for the 5-10 seconds. Any idea what part is malfunctioning?

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.

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....

If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

There are several possible causes for this. Bad flame sensor, bad thermostat switch, blocked air vent, or bad gas coils.

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
