Maytag Gas Dryer SDG515DAWW - heating stopped

This Legacy Series dryer has worked fine for about 4 years, but today it stopped providing hot air. All electrical works fine, and drum turns. I checked the igniter and it does not glow hot.
Is there a good way to check and see if the problem is with the igniter versus the thermostat versus something else? I would like to try and order the correct part the first time.
Thanks
Bruce

    Replacing the igniter did the trick.

    I also found the thermostat and learned that this is also easy to check (check for continuity with my ohm meter).

    Thanks for the tip.

2 year old maytag gas dryer blowing warm air


Hi, Is there ant heat at all? Is it possible the dryer heats at first and stops later in the cycle? The first thing to check is the 4" vent going to the outside. Make sure it is cleared of lint and that it is not pinched off at all.
If the vent is ok, you might need to replace the coils on top the gas valve.
I can help you with this. I just want to narrow it down.

Maytag Gas Dryer SDG515DAWW - heating stopped


The heat is regulated with a Klixon mounted next to the blower housing near the vent pipe so it can judge the temperature of the air coming out of the drum.Right next to it is a melting type fuse. If the dryer runs and gets too hot the fuse will melt.But the dryer will still run. So if the fuse is good(continuity) and the dryer control(cycle) thermostat is also good then you should have power going to the gas valve assembly when the machine is running unless the timer is in the no heat or wrinkle free/cool down mode. When the gas valve assembly is energized the flame sensor a%20flame%20sensor%202.bmp flame sensor mounted outside the burner chamber detects the heat from the ignitor. When the heat is very intense then the sensor shuts down the igniter
a%20igniter.jpg Igniter and that frees up the power so that the coils can be fully energised and open the gas gates. The gas comes out and hits the red hot igniter and you have ignition. It stays on for maybe 2 or 3 minutes or until the control thermostat is satisfied and shuts down power to the gas valve assembly.
