Maytag Gas Dryer MDG3000AWW

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?

Mdg3000aww gas dryer. drum turns. ignitor glows and goes off but no flame.

I suppose you made sure the gas is on. The valve probably has two valve coils sitting on top; one is a dual coil. My guess is that one coil is "open" (no continuity).

I have a Maytag Neptune gas dryer that is approx 8 yrs old and has worked great as far as drying time. The gas will now light and stay on for 15 seconds and then shut off, in 2 or 3 minutes it will light...

to me it sounds like your venting going out side,if it doesn;t get a clear flow it will come on and off the thermastate inside sencing to much heat.try unpluging the vent then try it if it stays on then you know your answer

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.

check out this electric no heat tip...

Neptune won't dry clothes -

I would replace the solenoids. The gas valve is not fully opening. The glow bar may be failing but the coils on the valve are in need of replacing..

Maytag gas dryer runs, doesn't dry

Check in the hole where the screen goes for blockage. Many times debries falls in there when removing screen. It cant make it out of the vent so it builds up and clogs the vent.
