I have a Maytag Neptune MDG5500AW that is not drying. It sometimes has heat but most of the time it does not. Can you help me diagnose the problem?

if it has heat the first 15 to 30 minutes and then no heat you have bad gas coils,they are located on the top of the gas valve,just remove the two phillips screws,remove the cover and change out the coils,

No heat

it could be the thermal fuse on the dryer vent housing open,the radiant sensor or high limit thermostat on the burner tube housing,the ignitor on the burner that glows to ignite the gas,or the boost and secondary gas valve coils on the gas valve that open the gas valve to supply gas to the burner,all items need to be accessed thru the removal of the front cover and checked with an ohmmeter for continuity or resistance

Maytag dryer gas valve.

Position the unit so the two coils are closest to you and the single regulator valve is in the back, The longer valve goes on the left (single coil). The short valve goes on the right and works with the split coil.

Gas maytag dryer not heating up

check the thermal fuse in the dryer vent duct to be open,then if not the flame eye" radiant sensor" or the high-limit thermostat both on the burner tube if the sensor doesn't see(sense) a flame the gas valve will stay shut,then check the gas valve coils,both the BOOST and SECONDARY coil valves on the gas valve body as these can open up and not gas into the burner

I have a Maytag Neptune MGD9700A dryer. It is LP.

Most times that is a sign that the gas coils are weaking. I am having a little trouble with your model number so I' not sure what your part numbers will be. Get with me later if you should find the model numer to be different. On Maytag they are inside the door. I am not saying that you are wrong but that I could find only this series MGD9700SB0 One coil should be part number 694540 Coil, 60 Hz. (2 Terminal) (Main) and the other part number 694539 Coil, 60 Hz. (Split) (3 Terminal) (Pilot Position) You can find these valve in a larger photo discription on this page=> Seabreeze Appliance Parts just click on photo to enlarge.

This is the 694540 and you can find Here=> 694540

Maytag Neptune MDG5500AWW Not Heating

The coils are the #1 failure in gas dryers, below is a description of how they work. This excerpt from;

Gas valve coils Watch the igniter. Does it glow bright orange, then shut off without igniting the gas? (When the gas ignites there's a large blue flame.) If so, there may be defective coils on the gas valve. Mounted on the top of modern gas valves, there are black electrical coils. The coils, when energized, open the gas valve. If one or more of the coils are defective, the valve doesn't open and the gas cannot ignite. Because it's often difficult to properly test the coils, it's usually best to replace both (all) of them at the same time.
