Replace both valve coils. They will open the valve the first time, but when they get hot, they become intermittent at best.

SOURCE: After a few heating cycles the burner does not ignite

The problem you are describing is usually associated with a bad gas valve coil. The dryer runs normally until it gets hot, then starts making a strange clicking noise. After it cools down, the dryer runs normally again. The gas valve coils (there are two of them) usually run about $20 a piece. I recommend replacing both of them at the same time just to be sure. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: Intermitten Heat up

I would like to thank the ones who responded to giving me a 'hand' in repairing my dryer. I did like you said & changed out the coils & now the dryer is working like it should.

SOURCE: dryer wont heat

About all that is left to replace is the flame sensor mounted at 9o'clock on burner flame tube, but I would double check your airflow, This is CRUCIAL to the normal operation of the dryer.
Also, a lint filter with an invisible coating from fabric sheets can cause an airflow disruption, try running without clothes and the filter removed.
Tip: Always provide the complete information provided on the manufacturers product information data tag, located on the unit, and not in the user’s manual. This will help you acquire a more accurate and expeditious response to your complaint.


If my assistance helped resolve this issue, please show your appreciation by rating how effective my advice was in resolving this issue.

As you are looking at the igniter you may notice a little rectangular sensor to the left.
This tells the dryer that the igniter is glowing and it is OK to open the natural gas valve. If this sensor isn't working, the gas valve remains closed
Once the burner is lit, there is another sensor above the flame that is round. (flame sensor) This tells the dryer that the flame is lit.
If this sensor isn't working the dryer turns off the burner after a brief period.
This sensor can be cleaned or replaced.

Doesnt dry clothes, every opening i have unclogged,even outside vent is clear.basket rolls but heat is room temp. no matter what setting.


Hi, I experienced the same problem with my Maytag electric dryer. I finally fixed the problem after I checked the actual vent pipe (which allows air to discharge to the outside of your home). What I found was quite surprising. I found was a mouse nesyt in this pipe. Once I removed the mouse next,m my electric dryer worked fine. Just a thought. Good Luck!

Replaced igniter in gas dryer,it ran about 12 loads and now doesn't heat again. took out igniter and it seems fine


the dryer has several operating and high limit thermostats in it usually in the back of the dryer under the back panel. these need to be tested. there is also a very good chance that your dryer is not venting properly. examine the vent pipe especially where it goes outside the house. when it is running there should be very good air flow. if not, you need to find the obstruction.

Gas smell from outside vent, but heats up fine, it is a maytag performa gas dryer. the igniter was just replced and i checked all connections with soapy water


It may not be burning clean. First thing you have to do is make sure that you dryer is vented right.
  1. make sure the vent pipe is not kinked, bent to sharp.
  2. Not full of debris.
Venting is important if it is abstructed then the gas backs up..

you may need to adjust the flame of the burner.

Maytag Gas Dryer SDG515DAWW - heating stopped


The heat is regulated with a Klixon mounted next to the blower housing near the vent pipe so it can judge the temperature of the air coming out of the drum.Right next to it is a melting type fuse. If the dryer runs and gets too hot the fuse will melt.But the dryer will still run. So if the fuse is good(continuity) and the dryer control(cycle) thermostat is also good then you should have power going to the gas valve assembly when the machine is running unless the timer is in the no heat or wrinkle free/cool down mode. When the gas valve assembly is energized the flame sensor a%20flame%20sensor%202.bmp flame sensor mounted outside the burner chamber detects the heat from the ignitor. When the heat is very intense then the sensor shuts down the igniter
a%20igniter.jpg Igniter and that frees up the power so that the coils can be fully energised and open the gas gates. The gas comes out and hits the red hot igniter and you have ignition. It stays on for maybe 2 or 3 minutes or until the control thermostat is satisfied and shuts down power to the gas valve assembly.
