    How do I take off the front (or the top) of the dryer to replace the glowbar igniter?

    If this is a GAS dryer, it does not have a heating element. You have a burner assembly. Can you please describe what the dryer is/is not doing?

Your model number indicates a gas dryer. It does not have a heating element. It has a glowbar igniter,a flame sensor and a gas valve. Either the glowbar igniter is bad or the flame sensor or the gas valve coils or the thermal fuse.

    There are 2 spring clips on the top between the top and front panel about 2 inches in from the right and left side where the top meets the front.
    Use a putty knife or a old CD to push the spring clips in while putting pressure on the top to raise it.Then take a wrench and remove 2 screws on the inside top right and left corners of the front panel. Remove the front panel and set it aside to access the parts listed above.

Ignition works but doesn't stay on long enough to heat dryer


its either the hi-limit switch is weak on the burner tube,or the gas valve coils on the gas valve are weak and can no longer keep the gas valve open to supply gas,if they appear warm after operation they are most likely bad

My Maytag Performa dryer is not heating at all .What should i do? Everything else works it just doesnt heat.


Hi

Replace the thermal fuse, and if possible test the heating group (thermostats and element or gas heater). You can replace the fuse straight away, or you can first test it using a multimeter set on OHMS. If the multimeter reads Ohms infinity when you touch the fuse contacts with its probes, then the fuse is gone.
If the fuse is OK, then you can have a defective thermostat or heating element (electric models), with gas models you test coils, thermostats and ignitor (flame sensor rarely fails).


After fixing the problem clean lint from air ducts, if the thermal fuse or thermostat has blown it means that there had been overheating.

I have a Maytag performa poropane dryer. It states the input rating at18000 btu per hour. I have a 5/8 inch OD flexible gas line at 48inches long it is rated for 75001 to106000 btu/hr . Is this the right...


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

There is nothing wrong with using a larger flexible gas line than is required. We used the 5/8 OD lines most of the time as they were much more durable than the smaller ones. The line you have is fine.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

I have a maytag performa dryer wont heat up sometimes


Hello there:
If there is no heat or heat sometimes please try these solutions
Heating element Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable. Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.) Wiring A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

Dryer not heating as it should. Gets warm, but takes several cycles to dry clothes


Could be 2 things... either your heat source is out of repair or your vent is blocked. Since you say it only gets warm I'll assume the problem is with the gas coils inside the unit. These parts are replaceable

My maytag performa gas dryer model # pyg2300aww gets warm but takes four cycles to dry.


clean your dryer vent going from the back of the dryer to outside also run a lint brush down where you put the lint screen in if this does not help replace your coils
