Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

Have a Maytag gas dryer, model#:LDG7314AAE, flame wont stay lit.

Have a Maytag gas dryer, model#:LDG7314AAE serial#:16068237QF, and the flame will not stay lit. It warms up ignites and then after 15 to 30 seconds it shuts off. It repeats the cycle but the flame stays lit for shorter amounts of time. I replaced the 2 coil located in the front of the dryer to no avail. I then removed the high limit thermostat and then the flame would stay lit. Assuming that was the problem I purchased a new one installed it but the problem was still there. Just looking for some help finding a solution. THANKS!!!!!!!!!

Clean/repair your dryer vent. The flame when it exits the funnel should not touch or just barely touch the funnel end. This indicates good airflow. A good test for the clogged/damaged vent is to disconnect the vent hose from the dryer and run it as is. If the flame stays - clean vent. If not - clean air path inside the dryer

I have a maytag gas dryer MODEL ldg8404aae, I replaced the Ignitor, now the unit will ignite, but will only stay lit for about 8-10 sec, can you help me


It might be a clogged vent make sure it is clean and has no obstructions, also it could be a bad themostat. Check the one right by the flame.

I have a maytag gas dryer model no# ldg7314aae.The dryer runs but there is no heat. the dryer vent was cleaned as well as the interior of lint and still no heat.I was wondering where to start as far as...


your thermal fuse near the dryer vent opening or blower housing inside the unit,this is a one-shot fuse when it burns out you can't reset it,you need to replace it,then the radiant sensor(senses the flame),high-limit and cycling thermostats located on the burner tube on the dryer,then the boost and secondary gas valve coils located on the units gas valve body near the gas inlet to the burner tube

Maytag LDG7400 gas dryer does not stay lit long enough to heat the drum. Can see flame turn on for about 10 seconds then back off for 20 to 30 seconds. Continues cycle of on and off until end of time....


Light sensors detect when burners are lit. If they become blocked with lint, dust, etc., they will not detect the flame and, for safety purposes, automatically shut off the gas flow.

Dust and lint are a dryer's worst enemy. Be sure that all sensing devices (particularly optical sensors) are clear of dust and lint so that light can pass unobstructed into the lens.

If they sensors are all clean, they might be defective. Something is erroneously telling your dryer's control that the burners are not lit and thus the gas supply is shut down.

I have a Maytag Dryer #LDG7314AAE flame won't stay lit


You will see little devices that are somewaht cylindrical in shape attached to the heater shroud. These devices are thermal breakers. Coffe makers have them too, and if you were to take it out of a coffe maker, the plate would get so hot, and your coffee will boil, and probably melt the plastic. These devices limit the dryers temperature. If you were to bypass these device, what you think will happen? The dryer will overheat and burn out the coils. Find out which one of these device is turning it one and off too soon, and replace with the same rating. Good luck

Did you change the igniter, or glow coil as it is sometimes called? If it is orange in colour instead of white it needs to be replaced as it is not strong enough to ignite and stay lit. Hope this helps.

Clothes won't dry, works sometime.


Either a bad flame sensor or bad coils on the gas valve assembly.

Maytag gas dryer - model unknown - gas wont stay lit


Yes does sound like blockage in the exhaust vent causing the high limit switch to stop the dryer.
