If the flame is not a clear blue,rather an orange/blue or orange, the gas is not being completely combusted, either the burner orfice tube needs cleaning or the air to gas ratio is off and needs more air intake and this can be adjusted also

Gas smell in maytag dryer


You have a gas leak from the gas valve being faulty. DO NOT use the dryer until you have replaced the valve! I have been doing appliance repair for 15 years and I have seen 7 homes that have burned down due to this very same problem. Please don't use the dryer! Here is the new gas valve to order.
Keep me posted!

Duet front load - water fills while door is open!


This is a leaking solonoid valve.
The valves are located just inside the machine where the water supply hoses attach.
  • Remove the power plug
  • Undo the top lid of the washer
  • The valves will have some internal pipes clamped on their outlets. Remove the pipes.
  • Dry the valve outlets with tissue.
  • Turn on the water supply to the washer (if it was off)
  • Watch the open valve outlets for seepage.

There may be between 1 and 3 valves depending on the model.
You should be able to replace the leaking valve quite easily.

Smelled mild gas odor after moving dryer. Replaced gas line connection. Still smell gas. Tried to tighten gas line have strong gas odor after running dryer. Does not seem to be heating


The gas valve should not be opening unless the glow igniter glows and sends a signal to the gas valve. I suspect a small leak in either the gas pipe or at the gas valve. You will have to get to the gas valve to perform a leak test. While the dryer is open, replace the igniter.

Maytag mdg5500aww gas dryer sensor


First of all shut off the power by pulling out the plug.

If you are sure of the sensor issue then you need to remove four screws on the inside of the door. Two screws are located on the left and two on the right, look at the hinge and you will find two. The door will lift out when you remove the screws. When the screws are out of the front, the front panel can be remove by pulling on the outside surface.

Maytag dryer model mdg5500aww


OPEN THE DOOR AND REMOVE THE TWO SCREWS IN THE MIDDLE OF EACH HINGE. LOOK AT THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE OPENING AND REMOVE TWO SCREWS FROM THAT SIDE ALSO. PULL FRONT TOWARD YOU FROM THE TOP. IT IS HINGED AT THE BOTTOM. ONCE THE TOP IS FREE, LIFT THE FRONT OFF THE HINGES. THERE IS A CLIP HOLDING THE TOP TO THE CABINET AT THE FRONT CORNERS. REMOVE THE SCREWS HOLDING THE CLIPS IN PLACE AND SWING THE CLIPS TO THE LEFT AND RIGHT TO REMOVE THEM. THE TOP SHOULD SWING UP AND TO THE BACK AT THIS TIME. IT IS HINGED AT THE BACK.
