Question about Maytag LSE7806A Top Load Stacked Washer/Dryer
My dryer turns but doesn't heat. I see on the internet thhat i may have a bad igniter or a bad thermostat or fuse. I understand that I should look at the igniter to see if it is glowing. Can you give me some advice on how to begin this troubleshooting and repair task?
The easiest way i can tell you if it is an ignitor problem or a thermal fuse or something else is to turn the timer to the timed section past 10-20 minutes then slowly turn the time back while the machine is running once you hit the last 5 minutes you should hear a click at the timer and at the gas valve. If you only hear a click at the timer and not at the gas valve it is probably a thermal fuse and control thermastat. If you hear a loud click at the gas valve it could be a bad ignitor .If you see an orange glow but no heat or intermitant heat the coils on the gas valve may be at fault

Hello - From what you are describing, if the dryer only heats up sometimes but provides a gas odor, it could possibly be a defective gas supply or igniter. Try resetting the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and turn on the fuse for the dryer. Turn on the dryer and select a normal cycle. If it proves to be ineffective and if the issue continues I suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately. Keep in mind since it is such a complex unit, the technician will likely verify that it doesn't have a defective sensor, control board or high limit thermostat.
