I have a Maytag Legacy Series Gas Dryer, model MGD5570TQ0. When we first start it there is heat, but it will not stay hot. It takes 4 or 5, 70 min cycles to get close to dry. Forget jeans or towels. ...


Hello,


The reason your gas heated dryer starts off heating ok,but a part way through the cycle it is no longer heating as it did when it started,is beacuse the coils that open the gas valve are getting hot and breaking down when they are warm. At start up of cycle the coils are cool,but when the dryer heats up as it runs the coils that are weak can not handle the heat and do not open the gas valve. Replacing the gas valve coils with fresh,strong ones will open the gas valve the entire duration of the drying cycle. All appliance manufactures use the same exact gas valve coils and label them with their unique part number. Having been in the service business i know they are all the same and the part number for the least expensive gas valve coils is 279834
They can be purchased at your local appliance parts store on online at
searspartsdirect.com
repairclinic.com
apwagner.com
apdepot.com
midwestapplianceparts.com

To replace the coils,remove bracket over them(dont worry about where it says dont grip thats for when dryer is plugged in) unplug them and install new ones,that bracket has notches in it and the coils have tabs that inter lock so they position them self exactly where they fit.

This is what the coils looks likeoldtech2332_76.jpg

My dryer dont heat up it saty cold during the whole drying proces


Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.


if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....


If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.


check out this electric no heat tip...

I have a Whirlpool Gas Dryer LGR6646BI-12 the clothes feel warm but not hot and they are still damp


The Dryness Level allows adjustment of how damp or dry the clothes are at the end of the cycle.
  1. Make sure the correct Cycle has been selected for the type of fabric being dried.
  2. If the correct cycle is selected and the clothes are still coming out too damp, use the Auto Dry Level button (Kenmore) or Dryness Level button to increase the Dryness level.

  1. If the highest Dryness Level setting was selected and the clothes are still damp, the Customer Focused Drying Mode settings that are built into the machine can be adjusted.
Dryers come from the factory set to Drying Mode 1 (default). Drying Modes 2 and 3, include additional drying time.
Note: This change will affect ALL Auto Dry cycles.
  1. Machine MUST be in Standby mode before beginning. (Standby mode = Plugged in, Power off)

  1. To select drying modes, momentarily press the Auto Dry Level button (Kenmore) or Dryness Level button (Whirlpool) again. The dryer will beep, and the display will flash and show the next drying mode number.
  1. With the door open and the display flashing the desired drying mode number, press the Start button to save the drying mode and exit diagnostics.
  1. Press the Pause/Cancel key at any time to cancel changes and exit from this mode.
Hope this works............

I have a Kenmore, 600 series gas clothes dryer. The gas shuts off during the drying cycle but it continues to blow cold air through the remaining cycle. I do use ''dryer sheets'' - could the chemicals in...


dryer sheets do not cause poblems / they do leave deposits on the filter / wash it now and then ., your problem is probably the valve / the coils get weak and the may start up but after they get warm they stop working and just cold air . if on auto dryer could run all night .. mm

Dryer start up fine then the gas turns off as ignitor continues


Hi Jim. Perhaps this will help you.

The burner assembly consists of the gas valve, the igniter and sensor, and the thermostats. The gas supplied to the appliance is turned on and off by the gas valve, as follows:


  • First--when you close the dryer door, set the timer, and press or turn the Start button--the motor starts. When it reaches full speed (in about a second) a switch on the motor turns on, which allows the electricity to flow through a simple thermostat to one side of the gas valve.

  • The gas valve then sends power to the igniter, which glows bright orange.

  • As heat and light from the igniter warm up a sensor that's right next to the igniter, the sensor circuit opens, then supplies power to the other side of the gas valve. This completes the circuit and opens the valve.

  • Once the valve opens, the gas rushes out and the igniter ignites it. As the gas burns, it keeps the sensor warm, which keeps the gas flowing.

  • When the dryer reaches the pre-set drying temperature, a simple thermostat turns off the flow of electricity to the gas valve and therefore turns off the gas.

  • When the temperature in the dryer falls about 20 to 30 degrees, the thermostat again allows the electricity to flow through to the gas valve, and the cycle starts over.

If you selected the Automatic setting, the cycle continues until the clothes are dry, then the timer advances and turns the dryer off.

If you selected a timed setting, the cycle continues until the time has expired, then the timer turns off the dryer

You need to keep at least the cold water turned on because it uses it for the drying operation. The cold water helps condense the warm moist air.
