Easy fix.
Open the top cover by insrting a putty knife in the top right and left sides where the top meets the bottom cabinet.
Lay the top to the back.
Remove 2 screws on the right and left front inside corners of the cabinet.
Remove the door.
Replace the belt around the drum and motor pulley.
Re-assemble the dryer.

SOURCE: maytag gas dryer wont heat

Since your hot surface ignitor is glowing, that means it is trying to heat, or that all the temp. switches are good and the timer is sending the signal. First check that there is actually gas pressure to the dryer. But the common problem is the coils on the gas valve. There are two, called the booster/holding coil, and the secondary coil. They are purchased as a set (part #279834 / $20.00) if it is the same as my mdg8600aww model. If that doesn't work, then likely the gas valve itself.

Sometimes those coils will open circuit when they warm up, and close when they cool down, giving you an erratic operation symptom.

Hi,
You need to have 220-240 or so volta ACROSS the two terminals on the element...the 125 can feed across and can be the same leg on both sides...

Maytag neptune dryer heats but wont tumble


When you spin it by hand, is there resistance? Can you hear the motor turning? In fact, when you switch it on and it starts to heat, can you hear the motor turning, or is it silent?

Sounds like the belt is broken, in which case there will be little resistance.

If there is resistance, it may be the motor or circuitry controlling the motor.

Hi,
When the dryer wont heat it is the thermal fuse that is bad, you can test it with a voltmeter before replacing. This fuse is located inside the rear panel and it cannot be reset.

Hope this will help...

My dryer is not heating,we have checked all of the settings, and the barrel is spinning so can you please help, the unit is about 4 yrs.old I have a maytag neptune


check ur breaker first, dryers will run on 120volts but wont heat unless have 240.

if electric check ur heating element, thermostats, and thermal fuse for continuity with a meter.

if gas check the ignitor,thermal fuse, and secondary gas coils,

Heat Element is working and drum spins, but no air is blowing?


First make sure that the dryer is vented properly, then check the blower wheel. A common problem is for the center of the blower wheel to get rounded out through wear and tear, allowing the blower wheel to spin on the shaft, thus not spinning at the same speed as the motor. I will attach a photo for reference. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Power on but it won't spin.


You have a broken drive belt. To access the belt you have to remove the back metal cover.
The no heat problem could be a heating element or safety thermostat. These are also located under the back metal cover.
