Gas dryer heat (drying) works intermitenly, model Maytag MDG6700

I have a Maytag Neptune MDG6700AWW. The heat comes on intermittenly. Sometimes it will dry the clothes completely other times it won't. Other times it won't dry at all and it does'nt matter what setting in is on.

    I'm sorry to hear that your dryer isn't working consistently. Intermittently drying doesn't seem very reliable when trying to do laundry. Have you had an appliance repair professional come out? I just noticed my own dryer hasn't been working really well. I may need to have someone come out to do a tune up or a diagnostic overview. http://www.lakewoodappliancetacoma.com

Problem with the Maytag Neptune MDG6700A Gas Dryer WHEN STARTED HEATS UP THEN NO HEAT AT ALL. MAYTAG MDG6700AWW


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

When the dryer heats for few minutes and then it won't work it means that the thermostat is bad and needs replacement. This part is located on the blower wheel housing inside the duct, you can also check this part for continuity before replacing. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Maytag mdg6700aww gas dryer runs but heat kicks out after 5 min


You have bad coils on your main gas valve . They tend to short (open) after getting warm which cuts off the gas to the burner . After cooling , they will work again for another 5 min until shorting again . Replace the coils (2 in a kit ).

Maytag Neptune gas dryer sense dry time at 99, little or no heat


If this is a gas dryer, I'd suggest an inspection by the gas company or qualified technician. If the jets aren't firing correctly, you are wasting gas and possibly creating a hazard.
