Question about Maytag Dryers

My Maytag LDG8200AAW does not stop automatically and does not sta

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.

Maytag dryer stops running after 10-15 seconds.

Check the exhaust vent in the dryer and the one going outside, sounds like it's plugged. If it's plugged the dryer will get hot real quick and shut off so it doesn't catch fire...

How do you replace the belt for a maytag gas dryer LDG8200AAW does the top need to come off and how looks like one peice

Good day,
Remove the 2 screws on the bottom of the front panel. Pull forward and down to remove being careful with the wires from the door switch.
You will see what has to be removed to slide the belt over the drum.
The belt is installed upside down. That is, the smooth side down.
Reinstall components to hold the drum in place.
Go to the rear and remove the access panel on the bottom right to attach the belt to the idler.
Installing the belt to the idler and motor pulley can be confusing, but Maytag supplies a picture on the bag how to. Be patient.
Once on, slowly rotate the drum to allow the belt to center (important) and finish putting the front panel on.

Maytag dryer turns on, the heating element glows, but the gas won't kick in. The drum turns but the fire won't start.

I would suspect faulty gas valve coils. These electrical coils are above the gas valves and when energized, these solenoids open the gas valves and permit gas flow to the burner. If faulty there is no gas flow and the burner cannot light. It is recommended that if any are suspected of being faulty that both (all) be replaced at the same time and will most likely come from the part supplier as a set. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Maytag Gemini gas stove top ... while starting one of the front burners, the starter knob in the back started on fire. Help!!

You have a gas leak which resulted in the unwanted fire. This has the potential to be serious or deadly. This is one time when you need to get a pro in there to stop this leak and get your stove safe again.

Burner flame orange instead of blue, problem just started today

The only thing that i can think of is that it is not hot enough. try turning up the heat. Orange fire just means that it is not as hot as the blue fire.
