Question about Maytag Neptune MDG5500AW Gas Dryer
I have a Maytag Neptune Dryer MDG5500AWQ. The ignitor comes on, gas flows and ignites for 15 seconds and then shuts off. One minute later the ignitor glows for 10 seconds, gas flows and ignites for 15 seconds and then shuts off. One minute later the whole cycle repeats itself. No wonder it is taking hours to dry my loads. Need help.
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.
