Question about Maytag MGD6300T Gas Dryer
I have a Maytag PYG3200AWW Gas Dryer and it won't start. There is power on the outlet. Before having this issue, it was taking a long time to dry out the cothes, sometimes 2 or even 3 cycles was necessary. So I cleaned out the duct and it was working great since then. It worked well for about 4 weeks and then stopped.
Machine is about 8 years old.
Sounds like a problem with a limit control switch. Some are manual reset and some are automatic . Not sure about yours. They are located of course, in-line within the wiring harness limiting the amount of heat build-up within the machine. If yours had been running with a stopped up, or patially stopped up vent, (and your limit swithch IS AUTO reset,) then the switch could have been cycling the heat numerous times, over that period, preventing overtemperature conditions. This would weaken the switch because it is a safety device and not actually a cycling device. Also, in the vent exhaust, @ the back of the machine there may be a limit switch. And of course, it could always be the start button..........
