Stops and all the lights come on

    • 1 Make sure the home's gas supply valve is turned on. Check your Maytag owner's manual to find the location of the dryer's gas shut-off valve. This is usually behind the dryer's front panel or in the back of the unit. Open the valve to allow gas to flow into the dryer.
    • 2 Open the lower front panel of the dryer to access the pilot light assembly. Press and hold the starter button as you light the pilot with a handheld lighter. If you have trouble getting it to light, release the starter button and wait a few minutes before trying it again. Once the pilot is lit, hold the starter button down for another minute to make sure it will stay burning.

    • 3 Close the dryer's front panel and run a test cycle to see if it is producing heat. Call a repairman to evaluate the problem if lighting the pilot did not restore the heat.

Maytag Gas Dryer, heats for a few minutes, then flame goes out

Service Manual for Dryer similar to yours will cover disassembly and troubleshooting:


It's likely one of the coils is opening a break in the coil as the coil heats up. This coil will shrink when cool and be able to run again. The number for the coil kit, which will replace ALL the coils, for your machine is 12001349

Service on gas appliances should be undertaken by professionals only due to the danger of gas leakage which can cause fires, explosion or death by asphyxiation.

Gas dryer - inadequate heat

Clean out your lint tray and hose. It sounds as if it is stopped up. The gas dryer automatically shuts off to prevent fires or overheating. The thermostat is probably O.K. since it will run for a few seconds each time.Let me know what you find out. Clean the lint trap first.
