    This problem is usually caused by a bad coil on the gas valve. To get any more help you will need to post your model number.

This type problem is usually caused by faulty gas valve coils. These electrical coils are right above the gas valves and when energized, these solenoids open the gas valves and permit the burner to light. Faulty coils can cause this type "cycling" problem. If any are suspected of being faulty it is recommended that both (all) be replaced at the same time. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

I have a Maytag MDG9606AWW gas dryer. The heat is intermittent. What part is most likely to need replacing?


Although it could be several things, the three most likely suspects is the radiant sensor P/N 338906, the thermostat P/N 303395 if there is a temperature fluctuation but the burner is active. The gas valve P/N 306176 if the burner is not active. Intermittent problems are very hard to troubleshoot so you need to write down every indication and when it happens. For example: Works good on permanet press, but not on high.

Hope this helps. Hal aka ImJustAvg

Igniter comes on will not let the gas in. The gas burner does not come on Maytag model dg882s


Hello,
Your have one of two problem causing the gas to not come on on your dryer.
1) the flame sensor is bad...if the igniter comes on and stays on and doesn't go off...usually within 1 minute the flame sensor isn't working as its supposed to
2) the coils on the gas valve could be the problem...if the igniter does indeed go off within 1 minutes and as soon as the igniter goes off if their is no flame the coils on the gas valve is what would need to be replaced
here is what each part looks like

Intermittant Heat on Gas Dryer


Check the venting tube. It maybe clogged full of lint somewhere inside of it. If so the moister contro sensor will shut off the burner within due time such as yours
