Question about Maytag MDG2706A Gas Dryer

1 Answer

Smell Gas. Hi-Can you please help me? I bought a Maytag heavy duty commercial, Legacy series gas dryer, Model # SDG515DAWW four years ago. On occasion, I have been smelling gas inside the laundry room. The gas dryer is the only appliance that I have inside that room. I tried to turn off the gas connection on the wall, let the laundry room vent out, and check for gas leaks at the gas valve connection on the wall-no leak. I turn the valve back on, let the dryer run and I smell gas again. The dryer works-it heats up well and dries the cloths fine. Even when the cloths are dried and the dryer is still tumbling, I still smell gas. Is there such a thing as a highly temperamental dryer fart? Also, I noticed that the lint collects everywhere in the laundry room! Before each dryer cycle, the lint is removed from the lint screen. I checked the vent exhaust behind the dryer-there wasn't alot of lint in the hosing. Is this normal?

    I am having the same issue. The dryer heats and drys, but I can smell natural gas. Is this dangerous and is there a solution?

    I'M HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM, THE SMELL OF GAS IS VERY STRONG OUTSIDE BY MY DRYER VENT AND INSIDE THE DRYER. I'M AFRAID TO EVEN USE IT. PLEASE HELP............

    Thank you, but the vent is clean. I called gas company and they could not find anything wrong with the dryer or the pipe. the smell is still there.
    i think i just have to get rid of it.

    Yeh, me too. Model SAV515DAWW extra-crispy, Legacy heavy duty model. It ain't a clogged vent. Subsequent to the gas smell, one of the gas valve coils failed. I have parts on order, and will update the post as appropriate. Give me Whirlpool any day
