Maytag mdg5500aww dryer does not dry

Maytag mdg5500 dryer goes through several cycles of proper operation.
Ignitor glows and gas flows. After three cycles, the igniter will turn on, but there is no gas flow.

Air flow is strong. I suspect either the thermostat or the radiant sensor.

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

SOURCE: maytag gas dryer, no heat, ignitor wont glow

The machine will check all safety features first. check the overlimit by the burner. It may have a reset. If not, turn power off and check continuity (ohms). Good luck.

SOURCE: Maytag Neptune Dryer taking hours to dry a load

Hello Friend, Your solution is simple. It sounds like your dryer is working properly, and your actual problem is a blockage somewhere in your 4 inch exhaust tubing. Check it and make sure it is not clogged up with excessive lint. Also if your tubing is clear you need to check your connection where it travels thru the wall etc. It would be a good idea to find the actual location where it exits to the ouside and check for good airflow. Your dryer is equiped with a safety thermistat and if you are not getting the proper exhaust flow the burner will cut off and restart in the manner that your's is doing. I Hope I have helped you, Tim. And please don't forget to give me your rating for my help.

SOURCE: I am trying to find the proper way to remove and

HI- First make SURE the machine is unplugged. Open the door and on the inside of the door frame you will see 2 screws on each side (2 of them go though the door hinges), remove these screws and pull the front panel forward from the top, it will hinge from the bottom and you can pull up on it to take it off. On the right bottom you will see the valve, ignitor and burner assembly. Locate the ignitor on the Left side of the burner, behind the valve, and use a 5/16 in wrench or socket to loosen the bolt that holds it in place. Unhook the wires and plug in the new one. Be very careful not to hit the ceramic part of the ignitor on anything or it will break, very easily. When you put it back o the bracket make sure it is all the way back and seated correctly. Reverse process. You can actually run the machine without the front panel on to see if the ignitor is working; just make sure the door is closed. Hope this helps, be careful.

SOURCE: I have a Maytag Atlantis gas dryer, model

Hello,
The problem is going to be that coils on the gas valve.It is pretty common for the coils to open gas valve when cool but once dryes runs and the coils heat up they will not open gas valve. the coils are the black plastic parts on the gas valve held down by a bracket, one has 2 wires the other has 3 wires in the plug on them. To replace them remove bracket over top of them(dont worry the bracket that says dont grip is for when dryer is plugged in you will be potentially shocked if gripping when plugged in but to repair when unplugged no danger)pull off of the plug and install the new ones,the bracket has a notch and the coils have a corosponding tab they interlock to positon coils correctly.
The part # for the kit that contains both coils is 279834 and sold for under $20.00 from your local appliance parts store on online at;

I hope this will help you to repair your dryer,
Gene

Hello,

While i understand that you cleaned the lint build up from the dryer,the problem your experiencing sounds like a airflow issue that is causing the flame to starve for air and the flame is blowing out. In addation to possible lint build up the things that will cause poor airflow are;

The blower wheel being bad...do you fell any air flowing out the back of the dryer?

A blocked/crushed vent..if air flow from back of dryer is their airflow close to equal volume of air flow where the vent goes outdoors?

You can disconnect the vent from the rear of the dryer temporarly and see if it works better with the vent off to check it


Good luck,i hope i have been able to help you fix your dryer,

Lights once then not again


Hot Surface ('Glow Bar') Ignition System glow-amin.60x20.gif (most common)
This is the most popular system currently in use and is comprised of a control mechanism (whether thermostat or electronic control), the oven ignitor and an oven gas valve. What happens in this style control system is that the thermostat or electronic control supplies power to the oven ignitor and gas valve which are connected in series (one after the other). As power flows through the ignitor it heats and allows a specific amount of current to flow to the oven valve which is in the same circuit. If the oven valve senses the proper current flow, it opens to allow gas to flow to the oven burner where the glowing hot ignitor (glow bar) ignites it.

Stops heatinng


Hi, first thing to check is the venting. If the vent is plugged, it will cause the heat to short cycle.
If later in the cycle, the ignitor glows but will not ignite the gas, you will need to change the coils on top the gas valve. This is a common problem.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thanks
