You have bad coils on your main gas valve . They tend to short (open) after getting warm which cuts off the gas to the burner . After cooling , they will work again for another 5 min until shorting again . Replace the coils (2 in a kit ).

Problem with the Maytag Neptune MDG6700A Gas Dryer WHEN STARTED HEATS UP THEN NO HEAT AT ALL. MAYTAG MDG6700AWW


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

When the dryer heats for few minutes and then it won't work it means that the thermostat is bad and needs replacement. This part is located on the blower wheel housing inside the duct, you can also check this part for continuity before replacing. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

No heat in gas dryer, gas good, elec good??


if the heat is on when the dryer is cold then shuts down after 15 to 30 minutes and doesn't lite for a long while you have bad gas coils,the gas should come on until it hits temp. then it shuts down,when the dryer calls for heat it will turn back on,if it stays on for short periods of time you might need to clean out the dryer,this will shut the gas down to soon,you need to clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,blow out the vent line,make sure the air is blowing outside with nothing blocking it and vac out the inside of dryer where the motor is

Gas dry is not heating enough to dry clothes


There is two possible causes. Either your gas coils are going bad late in the cycle or your venting is restricted. I would go outside check to make sure you have good airflow. If you have good airflow outside the only common cause of gas dryers failing to heat late in the cycle would be gas coils. If you have a peep hole on your dryer look in it after your dryer has been running for approx 30 mins and see if the ignitor glows and then shuts off. If the burner does not kick on then you have bad gas coils. They are part number 5303931775.

Let me know if this helps _MJ_

Gas dryer won't heat with cover off


The 2 coils on the gas valve , need to be replaced . After the dryer runs for a short time , the coils get warm from the electricity going thru them . The weaker valve , shorts internally , not letting the gas go thru . After the dryer cools down , and the coils cool down , then the short will close ( giving continuity ) , until they warm up again . If you had given the model number , I would have given you the part number .
