SOURCE: Dryer Drum Won't Spin

Reach inside and grab ahold of the baffle. Try to spin the drum, it should have resistance. If it spins freely you have a broken belt. Hope that helps. Dave ww.washermd.com

SOURCE: gas dryer maytag MDG 7600 AWW Heats - then shuts off

Check the flame sensor mounted to fire tube, its a rectagle with a glass window, also the coil can be replaced on gas valve if they are weak,
You definitly want to check the exhaust vent and vacume.

SOURCE: dryer runs but will not heat-vent and exhaust hoses appear clear.

Disconnect power from the dryer. Open the door and remove the 4 phillip screws from the inside lip of the door opening. Lift the door slightly and remove by sliding the hinge out from the slot on the cabinet. Grasp the front panel near the upper holes of the screw just removed. Twist from the inside out and pull away from the cabinet at the same time. Lift the front panel off of the bottom clips to gain access to the igniter. DO NOT touch the new ignitor surface as it is extremely fragile. The ignitor is attached by a single screw. Make sure the molex connector to new ignitor is secure.

Reverse the above procedure to reassemble.

SOURCE: Our Maytag gas dryer drum doesn't turn. Replaced

There are three possible reasons why the drum doesn't turn.

  1. Broken belt. You replaced the so in this case it's not.
  2. Door switch. The dryer will not operate if teh door switch is defective. It is inside the drier main housing near the door frame. You need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch. Replace if defective.
  3. Motor. If the motor hums when the start button is pressed, the motor maybe burned-out. Check the dryer motor:
  • Check the blower fan housing for obstruction and manually turn the motor shaft.
  • If the motor is very stiff or cannot be turned manually, you need to replace the motor.
  • If the motor rotate freely, run the motor without the belt. If it runs fine, there maybe problem with the idler pulley or the clothes drum.
  • Rotate the drum by hand. If it is difficult to rotate it, correct any problem with the rollers or pulley. Reassemble the dryer and try it again.
  • If the motor hums but does not run on it's own even without the belt,but can be turned freely by hand, you need to replace the motor start capacitor or the motor itself.

Maytag Neptune gas dryer model nbr MDG 4000 BWW. Dryer runs well but doesnt heat up. ...


A very common problem in a non-heating gas dryer is what is called the gas coils, especially if it will light briefly and then go out and not relight. You should also check the igniter and make sure there are not cracks or burned places, also thermal fuse and thermostat could cause a no-heat.

Dryer does not heat up.


Hello there:
normally on these units if the dryer was working ok and then suyddenly stopped heating your heating element or the ignitor (excitor ) has failed and is need of replacement
so i would start by having these things checked first by contacting a local repair man to do a evaluation on the unit and if kyou still have a valid warranty i would use it ok
I hope that this is very helpful for you
Best regards Richard
