Question about Maytag Neptune MDG5500AW Gas Dryer
I have completely took this thing apar for a good cleaning to start with, the glow type ignitor starts and glows red hot for 10-13 seconds, the flame will only randomly light. Just when the the ignitor shuts off ther is a clicking noise from 1 of the 2 solenoids (appears to be the 2 wire solenoid), gas supply line is good, vent is free and clear. There is two sensors on the tube (heat stove) The one on the lower left (looking from the gas burner end into stove pipe) looks to be some sort of photo cell as it looks to have a clear glass piece aimed at the flame thrower (burner?), the senond is mounted to the upper right and looks to be some sort of transistor, when this does light it is after it sets for a while then it only stays lighty for a sort time 10 minutes or less that is. Ypu can respond her and now or write me back @ firstname.lastname@example.org, hurry I have two teage girls !!!!!!!!!

The most common cause for your problem are the two coils on the gas valve. It is normal for the burner to cycle on and off while the clothes are drying. One of the coils is getting weak after it gets hot and not opening the valve.
Replace both of them.
You can order the set from repairclinic.com for $18.95.
If you need further help, please post the complete model and serial numbers.
