First, check to make sure that the ignitor is working properly. It should glow visibly if it is functioning properly. If the ignitor is working alright, and the burner won't light, then consider the gas valve coils. These electrical coils are above the gas valves and when energized, these coils open the gas valves and permit gas flow to the burner. If the coils are bad the burner cannot light. It is recommended that if any coils are suspected of being faulty, that both (all) be replaced at the same time and they will most likely come from the parts supplier as a set. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Mdg3000aww gas dryer. drum turns. ignitor glows and goes off but no flame.


I suppose you made sure the gas is on. The valve probably has two valve coils sitting on top; one is a dual coil. My guess is that one coil is "open" (no continuity).

Maytag neptune model mdg3000aww heats for 20 - 30 second then the burner stops.


The most common failure item is the gas valve coil(s)

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.
Below are some links provided by, www.repairclinic.com. This can assist you with diagnosis, parts ordering and replacement.

If your dryer doesn't heat, check these:

Igniter
Gas valve coils
Igniter Modern gas dryers use an electric igniter to ignite the gas from the gas valve. When it's working properly, the igniter glows bright orange. When it burns out, the dryer tumbles but there's no heat because the gas can't ignite. When the igniter burns out, you need to replace it. If the igniter is held by a tension bracket, you very well may need to replace the bracket too.

The igniter is inside the dryer housing, near the bottom front, usually in a cone-shaped metal tube (the force cone). It's about 2 inches long. It's mounted to the far end of the burner tube, and it has two wires attached to it--or to the tension bracket, if there is one.

Gas valve coils Watch the igniter. Does it glow bright orange, then shut off without igniting the gas? (When the gas ignites there's a large blue flame.) If so, there may be defective coils on the gas valve. Mounted on the top of modern gas valves, there are black electrical coils. The coils, when energized, open the gas valve. If one or more of the coils are defective, the valve doesn't open and the gas cannot ignite. Because it's often difficult to properly test the coils, it's usually best to replace both (all) of them at the same time.

Neptune mdg3000aww starts heating and runs fine but stops heating shortly after start up can restart heater starts again and shuts down


If the machine keeps running but just not heating you have a thermostat issue. It could be the operating therm. or the high temp limit therm malfunctioning, shutting off the element.

If the machine stops running completely, check the door switch.

My maytag neptune gas dryer model #MDG3000AWW When I push the start button on my maytag neptune dryer it sounds like it wants to start but doesn't and then it gets this smell like something is burning?...


It sounds like the drum bearings are seizing up preventing the drum from rolling easily, and when the motor runs, it can't pull the drum belt around the drum that won't turn, so starts squealing and burning the belt.

You need to lubricate/replace the drum bearings, and replace the belt.

Maytag gas dryer runs, doesn't dry


Check in the hole where the screen goes for blockage. Many times debries falls in there when removing screen. It cant make it out of the vent so it builds up and clogs the vent.
