Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

My Maytag gas dryer Model # MDG308DAWW doesn't work - I dried a load OK and when I went to do the next load - I push the dial to start the cycle I just get a buzz and the cycle does not strat. Is there anything I can do short of calling the Maytag man. Does it maybe have a reset button somewhere - if that could be it. Tom Rowinski 810-625-6259 tar8412@chartermi.net

Hi Tom.

If there is an humming noise, then it is almost for sure a fault. There is no much you can do apart calling a technician.

Check the lint filter (PS1814710) if there is too much lint in there you may overheated and blown the fan motor.

Try disconnecting power from appliance for about ten minutes, then connect back, this may clear a problem caused by a jammed timer board circuit.

If that does not work there is a fault.

Common faults that can cause humming or buzzing noise in this model are:

Broken belt: PS2041323 (part 21- diag.2) - the multi rib belt is broken or lose. The motor running alone will make a soft humming noise.

Faulty motor: PS2021298 (p.23-D1.)- The motor will not start and keeps humming.

Faulty fimer board: My Maytag gas dryer Model - _.gifPS2039578 (P.16-D3)- If the humming noise is coming from timer board, then the control board is faulty. This problem is quite common. Timer wiring must be tested before replacing timer board.

If you need to contact a technician, please call the support number listed on the owners manual, it should be in the last pages of the manual.

Please do not forget to leave feedback.

Best regards.

My mdg308daww spins, the heat igniter, glows for about 5-10 seconds and then stops after about a minute it glows again. The igniter was tested ok, and the coils were replaced still the same problem....


Assuming the gas supply valve is turned on, I would make sure the gas valve orifice in your dryer isn't plugged up. If its not that leaves your gas valve not letting the gas in. Very rare though.

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.

I have a Maytag Atlantis Gas Dryer that will turn on, rotate, but will not get hot and dry the clothes. A load of clothes in the afternoon, didn’t dry, tried again but didn’t dry – went to bed after putting on auto dry - next morning the dryer was still rotating and didn’t turn off. No hot air – only cold air.

Won't turn on


First check voltage and breaker,(this is a big one)
next, if you have power to the appliance (120 gas dryer or 240 electric) then the door switch is probaly broken.

lastly, perhaps a thermal fuse located on blower vent. goodluck
