Question about Maytag Atlantis MDG7400AW Gas Dryer

1 Answer

Maytag Atlantis LP Gas Dryer 2002 Model Year M# MDG7600AWW S# 40533666AN The dryer heats up (lights) when it is cold but only stays hot for about ten minutes. The only way to get the burner to relight is to let everything cool down for a while. Then the same thing happens again. I've cleaned out all the lint that I could find and confirmed good airflow through the outdoor vent (about 24" away)??? What gives?

HI, you have two devices that will need to be replaced at this time. these devices work together to regulate the temperature and the cycling of the burner as well. when one or more of these specific devices begins to malfunction, it will cause the symptoms you are experiencing at this time. i will list the affected parts and there respective locations as well below.

Cycling thermostat control, multi-temp, 4 terminal---$29.45

Gas dryer sensor for igniter and flame---$27.80


Replacing these vital parts will fix this issue.

check the ignitor. depending on the model can be from $25- $90.00 This is what heats up when you start the dryer. like a pilot light on a water heater, only it doesn't stay on all the time.

Convert Natural Gas Dryer to LP Gas


A dryer is a dryer. Most cases they all work the same. You will need to get an LP conversion kit for that model to complete the task.

I have a Maytag Atlantis Gas Dryer that will turn on, rotate, but will not get hot and dry the clothes. A load of clothes in the afternoon, didn’t dry, tried again but didn’t dry – went to bed after putting on auto dry - next morning the dryer was still rotating and didn’t turn off. No hot air – only cold air.
