Question about Maytag Dryers
I have a maytag MDG7600AWW dryer. The igniter glows, the gas supply is turned on & the flame comes on. The problem is that after 15 secs the flame goes away. After about a minute, the ignitor glows again & the flame fires off but turns off after 15 secs or so. This cycle repeats.
I checked the air vents & there is air coming out from both vents ( Dryer & out of the house).
Since the flame is coming, i believe that the ignitor & flame sensor are working properly & so are the gas coils.
Could the thermostat be the problem? What else could go wrong?
I haven't checked any electricals but they seem hard to get to without removing the side panels. Is that the only way to get to it?
Can someone tell me what to check next?

the gas coils have a problem. as the dryer heats p the coils on the gas valve are failing causing the dryer not to heat. replace the coils and you should have no problem

your gas coils are bad. they open up for the first cycle but fail to after. Replace your coils and this will solve your problem

You may want to disconnect the vent from the back of the dryer and try it. Flame rollback will cycle the burner off by the high limit.
Considering what you have already done to it, if the problem still exists you probably have bad coils on the gas valve. make sure you replace them as a set.
The thermal fuse is a one time device. If it opens, the burner will not come on at all.
