Question about Maytag Dryers
The burner fires at the start and turns off then the drum gets hot. Then the burner turns off. Later the igniter turns on but the burner does not fire. I checked the thermal fuse and it has continuity. I assume the cycling thermostat is OK because it tries the re-fire. Any thoughts?
It's likely one of the coils is opening a break in the coil as the coil heats up. This coil will shrink when cool and be able to run again. The number for the coil kit, which will replace ALL the coils, for your machine is 279834.
Disconnect power and turn off gas before working on this dryer.
Service on gas appliances should be undertaken by professionals only due to the danger of gas leakage which can cause fires or death by asphyxiation.
The disassembly procedure is covered beginning on page 3-11 of the manual listed at the link below. Operation and replacement of coils is covered at page 3-32. Replace All coils with Kit Number listed above. Take care not to touch or hit the ignitor or you will be replacing it also. It is VERY brittle.
Reverse process to re-assemble.
