Usually the fan draws the flame down the tube. Make sure the fan and all the ducting is clear, including the lint filter.

SOURCE: maytag dryer not heating

Many gas appliances have safety devices that all need to be functional or you will not be sucessfull in passing fuel to the burner assembly.
There are 2 or 3 electrically controled coils on the gas valve (electromagnetic), these lift a pin in the control and gas flows as requested, these can fail and are realatively inexpensive and easy to replace, $4-25 depending on how many and where purchased.
Other sensors are 2-limit thermostats, radiant sensor, heat sensors, motor temp sensor, humidity sensor, switches (door etc.) all must function in the system to allow correct performance, lastly control panel, also most problems involve cleanlyness of the entire system and all associted exhaust piping.
There are no appliances that are free from maintanance so all require inspections and regular cleanings.

SOURCE: Dryer makes a loud squealing when first started

Your problem sounds like drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication, or maybe your belt has slipped off of the idler arm pulley.
If you have a front loading machine, Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer. Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt. Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm pulley and motor. Now is a good time to check the belt to see if it has slipped off of the idler arm pulley and also to check the belt condition for wear. Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt. Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots or wear on them replace them. If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem. I will include these two websites for parts and further help: Both also have chat assistance 24/7. Good Luck, I hope this helps Please rate me, Thank You

Igniter comes on will not let the gas in. The gas burner does not come on Maytag model dg882s

Your have one of two problem causing the gas to not come on on your dryer.
1) the flame sensor is bad...if the igniter comes on and stays on and doesn't go off...usually within 1 minute the flame sensor isn't working as its supposed to
2) the coils on the gas valve could be the problem...if the igniter does indeed go off within 1 minutes and as soon as the igniter goes off if their is no flame the coils on the gas valve is what would need to be replaced
here is what each part looks like

I replaced the idler pulley and pulley arm on my Maytag Dryer model#SDG2606AWW, and now I don't have enough tension for the drum to turn. This site shows your belt going around the motor a half turn, grooves to the pulley. Then you have to wind up the spring-pulley and put the belt over the roller a half turn. That should take up the slack. The packaging of a new belt should show how it goes.

Drum belt tension

I found a dryer manual on the web that showed how the drum belt wrapped around the pulleys.
Problem solved.
