Question about Maytag Neptune MDG5500AW Gas Dryer

1 Answer

Gas will not stay lit.

I have a maytag MDG5500AWW dryer that stopped heating up. I took the front panel off and started the dryer, the igniter glowed and the gas ignited but shut off later. What do I need to check and where do I find it. Thanks.

I have a neptune mdg5500aww dryer, goes on, glowing igniter... but does not turn on the gas... what is wrong


Hello,

Their are 2 possible things wrong;

1) Does the igniter just stay on or does it glow and go off usually within 1 minute?..if the igniter just stays on and never goes off the FLAME SENSOR will be the problem
here is what the flame sensor looks like oldtech2332_86.jpg
2) if the igniter does glow then go off but no flame..the coils that open the gas valve are bad
here is what they look like oldtech2332_87.jpg

The part numbers are;

FALME SENSOR 338906

GAS VALVE COILS 279834

The parts could be ordered from your local appliance parts store or online at;

My dryer is not heating up. The ignitor glows but the gas does not ignite. I took of the front lower panel and watched it. It doesn't ignite. The gas line is fine. What can it be?

Maytag Neptune MDG5500AWW gas dryer ignites, then flame goes out


The 'radiant sensor/ needs to be replaced. This sensor tells the system that the flame is lit and everything is good. Go to repairclinic.com

Maytag Neptune MDG5500AWW Not Heating


The coils are the #1 failure in gas dryers, below is a description of how they work. This excerpt from; www.repairclinic.com.

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.

Gas keeps shuting down and not heating the air


First thing to check is the ignitor underneath the drum. (You have to open the panel to see it)  It should glow shortly after the dryer starts, then the flame starts and the ignitor shuts off.  If the ignitor does not glow then it or the thermostat is bad.  If the ignitor is glowing but the gas does not light then the gas valve coils may have to be replaced.   If the gas ignites but does not stay on either the flame sensor or the coils are at fault.  If the gas ignites but the cycle stops and repeats quickly the lint filter, exhaust vent or outlet may be clogged.

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.
