Maytag gas dryer not drying cloths

Help again, Problem Maytag gas dryer not drying cloths. You and a few more said it was most likely the gas coils. I then ordered them and they are changed. THE PROBLEM is still there. AS the response from you stated need more information well here it is. Maytag, Model number is LDG9606AAE Serial number is 10818220QU. I think the cycle is right but the gas does not stay on long enough to heat up the drum. Everything has been cleaned out and the flow is there. The cycle starts with the click from the back of the dryer, then the ignighter comes on, then the gas fires a nice blue flame and then goes out within 15 seconds. In about 2+ minutes it starts the same all over. What will be the problem if the flame does not stay on long enough to heat up the drum? After 60 minutes the clothes are still very damp. After 2 hours them may be dried. Any all help would be greatly appreciated. Again the gas coils were changed out Thank you.

Here's an idea, is your machine in a well ventilated area? Gas powered devices have oxygen sensors that detect when the oxygen level drops to a dangerous level, this shuts off the gas, but not the machine. Put a fan in the room, open the window or door and try again.

SOURCE: I have a Kenmore HE 3, model number 110.8787,8789. I cleaned the lint screen, unscrewed the plastic that holds the screen and cleaned all lint out. After doing so, my dryer won't start. The lig

when you removed the screen from the inside you disconnected the wires from the 2 metal strips. now you need to remove the lower panel on the front. and reconnect them. you will need a T-20 torx and unplug the dryer to be safe. the wire will have 90 degree push on connectors and it does not have any polarity concerns. the two male connectors are real close to the top of the panel, maybe even slightly under the other panel. By the upper right of the silver fan duct.

SOURCE: Ten year old G.E. dryer won't dry clothing all the way. Cloths are still damp.

It could be a problem with the timer. get a pro to look at the timer, it could be dirty or faulty.

Clothes won't dry, works sometime.


Either a bad flame sensor or bad coils on the gas valve assembly.

Maytag Neptune MDG 5500 AWQ heats sporatically


your dryer has a safety feature that it will not run or heat when the door is opened. It is so no gas fumes are exhauseted into your home. Once the safety is engaged, It will not allow the dryer to restart for a short while. It should clear itself after only a few minutes. Hope this helps, good luck.

Dryer not drying.


I don't know what the noise is but I had the same problem with the drying. I checks several sources because I don't like to replace parts that are not broke. the problem was 2 coils near the pilot light. Each is held on by 1 screw and a wire gets plugged into it. Easy fix and ran fine again. I think the coils are a comment problem because as soon as I told the parts place what kind of dryer I had they told me what I was in for.

Maytag MDG7600AW Gas Dryer heat starts and then stops


Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

This link, http://www.repairclinic.com/SmartSearch/SmartSearch.aspx, provides exploded view imagery, belt routing diagrams, parts imagery and function, parts ordering and shipping information, error code details, just about anything you need to get your appliance up and running again. Just follow the links to navigate through the site.

You will need to enter the model number stamped on the manufacturers product information data tag, located on the unit, and not in the User’s Manual. to access your product information.


Here are some common solutions to help resolve the issue with your appliance. Clicking on the underlined links will take you directly to that page.

If your dryer doesn't heat properly, check this: Venting restriction: Disconnect the dryer temporarily from the vent. If the flame stays on for a longer period, you may have an air flow obstruction to the outside. 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. Also, in your case, the coils may work fine initially, but heat build up can cause the coil(s) to malfunction and when they cool down will work again.
