Question about Maytag MDG7600AW Gas Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer comes on then will not continue heating

The dryer will come on a heat, but will not continue to re heat as it needs to. There is a sound of a soliniod trying to let the burner ignite, but no flame. The igniter works, but no flame after first flame on. If it cools an hour or so it will start to work, but then will fail to reheat

Hi, You will need to change the coils on top of the gas valve. Remove the screws on each side of the door opening and the fron panel will release. The door will hange there on the hinges. The two black doils on the gas valve will work early in the cycle and then after they get hot, they will not open later in the cycle.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further,

Vic

Your ignition unit may be worn out and will need to be replaced. Generally, a heating element comes on and once it reaches a certain temperature, it ignites the gas pilot. Then the heating element cools off because the gas is now burning and producing heat. When this heating element stops working correctly, it will not reach the right temperature to ignite the gas. You'll need to have a professional perform the repair. If the dryer is still under warranty, this might be covered.
Check your owner's manual.

I hope this solves your problem. If it does, please come back to Fixya and rate my advice!

For Dryer Model LER7646EQ1, dryer runs but no heat, It could be the heating element, the thermal fuse or other. Also the dryer has been running hot.I do not know how to remove the front panel


This sounds like a faulty thermal fuse or heating element. The fact that you said the dryer has been running hot could indicate that the heating element was making contact with the heater box or the high limit thermostat is faulty. Both the thermal fuse and heating element can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter and checking for continuity. A lack of continuity means a faulty component. When necessary to replace a thermal fuse it is best to change the high limit thermostat as well. They will sometimes come as a set from a parts supplier. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Runs but does not heat


Sounds like the timer may have failed if the dryer continues to run for hours and hours. And this may be what keeps the heating elemnts from coming on.

Reply your findings and I can help you more.
