Maytag DG410 gas dryer-no flame, no heat. I replaced the ignitor - that apparently isn't the problem. Other ideas?


Motor runs, but main burner will not ignite
1.heat switch set wrong---correct switch setting
2.defective timer or timer circuit---check timer wiring--replace timer motor or switch as needed
3.defective centrifugal switch in motor---clean switch or replace as needed
4.gas supply valve closed----open gas valve
5.inoperative solenoid coil---test coil for open circuit & the voltage to it
???
Pilot burner goes out
1.insufficient gas supply---- low gas pressure or clogged pilot filter or partially closed gas valve
2.carbon deposit on thermocouple tube---clean tube & check pilot burner for proper combustion
3.improperly adjusted pilot flame--adjust pilot flame until faint yellow tip begins to appear
4.faulty ignition or reset valve or thermocouple---replace

Clothes not drying, but dryer runs & heats
1.defective operating thermostat---test thermostat, replace if defective
2.fan or it's pulley loose on shaft---tighten set screw
3.incorrect heat or timer settings---reset timer
4.clothes to wet when placed in dryer----wring out or extract water from clothes before placing in dryer
5.clogged lint screen or duct (little air motion)---clean out lint screen & duct

We have a Kenmore 80 gas dryer that tumbles, has hot air, but takes 2 hrs to dry. Vent line is clear, but lint filter is getting lint on back side of filter as well as normal amount on correct side. The...


Have you cleaned out the lint build-up from inside of the dryer yet? When you disconnect the vent from the back of the dryer, look inside the dryer. It probably have years of lint build up covering everything and needs cleaned out. You also will need to clean out the filter reservoir (with the filter removed) if you can get to it with a vacuum attachment. Be sure to unplug the cord and close the gas valve while you are working on it. Also be sure your vent flap outside is not stuck and allows hot air to open it when in use. Lastly, when you push the dryer back into place, make sure you don't squish the vent tubing if it is an expandable plastic or foil vent, which will restrict air flow and cause drying clothes to take longer. Hope this helps. Douglas

Maytag performa gas dryer appliance gets hot but have to cycle clothes 2 times to get dry, have vacuumed out lint trap and exit vent any ideas thanks.


Hi, it sounds like you have covered most bases. One other thing I would check is total airflow. Outside, where the dryer exhaust leaves the building it should be unobstructed, If there is a flap or louvers they should open freely. You should be able to feel the warm air when you put your hand at the vent. If aiflow is good, the thermostat may be defective.

Our dryer is not getting hot The problem is intermittent and we have cleared the vent from excess lint.


Hello there:
here is a real good place to start troubleshooting first
the heating element , when this element is nearing the end of the life cycle and may need to be replaced .. It will start to intermittently heat and than no heat. i would also check all of the wires around all of the switches ect ect and i understand that you have cleaned all of the lint but do you self a favor and if you can get the panels off the dryer lint likes hiding in the pack panel and around the lint trap and around wires . so i hope that this has helped you out a little bit on what to look for ok.
best regards mike

Maytag MDG7600AWW not staying hot


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.

Conia CCD4501 cloths dryer not blowing hot air anymore


If you can turn it on and have the door open, hold the door switch in and see if you have a glow from the heating element. If not, your element is broken. That is if it is an electric dryer. If it is a gas dryer you need to check the pilot light or the thermo sensor.

Rheem gas furnace pilot lights, but no burners or fan


If the burners do not fully ignite, the sensor will shut the furnace down. The lack of sufficient burner flame is a gas valve or gas pressure problem within the valve.
Replacing the gas valve with the original one may get you going. I surely suggest a professional service company for safety reasons and a thorough inspection. A 20 year old furnace is past it's normal life span.
