Hi, It sounds like that the coils on top of the gas valve are not opening the valve later in the cycle. They get weak enough ovwer heat and will not open the valve. You can listen for the ignitor to click on and then you can hear the gas ignite. If late in the cycle you hear the igniter click and then no gas ignition, change the coils.
You should also make sure the vent going to the outside is clear of any lint or kinked.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Maytag atlantis model #mdg7600aww how do i light pilot


This gas dryer uses automatic ignition. Their is no pilot. The gas valve assembly consists of a glowbar/ignitor, a flame detection sensor and a pair of coils all cleverly wired in a complex series circuit. When the fuse allows the control to flow power to the gas assembly all of the gas assembly components are energized. The coils cannot open the valve however as long as the ignitor is glowing. When it gets red hot it heats the bimetal inside the flame detector which shuts off the power to the ignitor. When the ignitor glows it holds open one of the gas coils. The other gas coil has enough juice for it to open, then ignition occurs. Depending on how many clothes is in the drum and how wet they are detirmins a burn period. With nothing in the drum it heats up to temp promptly and therefore the gas stays on a shorter period of time. So what can go wrong? The fuse mounted next to the control on the blower housing will melt if the blower wheel is wobbly and worn out or their is a lint build up causing air flow blockage. The control stat might be bad (doubtful) unless it ain't shutting down and is melting the fuse. If power is indeed getting to the gas assembly I would check the sensor first. if it is open circuit no power will get to the ignitor. If that is fine check the ignitor for continuity. Note: If it works a little but quits, replace them solenoid coils on the assembly. When they get aged they tend to quit when hot. My home movie of how it works:

Sometimes having heat and sometimes having cool air Maytag Atlantis dryer, Model # MDG7400AWW


Hi, If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes it is still not working properly. if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....

Ihave a maytag atlantis gas dryer model mdg7400aww that when I first start it up it gets warm but then stops heating? what is the problem


The operator coils get hot and quit on these ,when they get a little age on them, quite difficult to diagnose. If the coil feels hot to the touch after failure then that is a clue. f00c98f.jpg

The dryer stops heating before the clothes are dry.


Maytag gas dryer MDG7600aww, (Model number corrected). Below is a link, courtesy of www.repairclinic.com showing the parts breakdown and disassembly procedures.

This link shows the most likely cause of your issue.
http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-mdg7600aww-%3d%3di3479&PartID=3479

This link shows the next likely cause of your issue. Remove the front panel and inspect the sensor bar which is located at the 4 o'clock level on the drum bulkhead, ( see the first link for location). Ascertain that 2 wires are connected to it and that black sensor bar is not cracked or broken.

This link will offer more assistance if the above 2 items check good.

Dyer malfunctions


Clean off the two metal bar inside the drum, near the lint filter. (these are the moisture sensors, which can become coated with fabric softener sheet residue, preventing the dryer from "seeing" that the clothes are still wet)
