We bought this machine last year, converted it to propane & have loved it. All of a sudden there is no ignition ( fire). I have taken off the front & cleaned everthing I could see. Still no fire. I have check the gas supply, the drum is spinning, the only thing I think I heard last year right after it started and right before the "FIRE" was a clicking sound? What ever you might sugest would be greatly appriecated! Thank You, Don Wagner Jr @

Does a kenmoore 80 series have glides
go here and you can see the parts in your dryer,if the model isn't a maytag pye2300ay then just put your model number in there and it will show you,kenmore doesn't make anything,you go by the model number if it starts with 110. it's a whirlpool,if say 417. it's frigidaire made but the maytag model you sent has rollers and i would say if you have a kenmore 80 series it has rollers,you can buy a kit that comes with the rollers,belt and belt pulley

The timer on my Maytag DG212 dryer sticks and does not advance so it just keeps running.

You will need to change out your timer, as it is non-repairable.
Hint:...Be sure to get the same brand/mfg of timer, or be somewhat of an electrician because if you do not get the same timer it will not be wired the same.
Also only remove and replace one wire at a time, it will keep you out of trouble and ease the installation of the timer.

My Maytag DG212 gas dryer is not drying well, the hose and vent are clear. What I see is the flame will only last 10 to 15 sec. and then go out.

9 yr old Kenmore 90 series dryer wont heat

is it gas ? next time open dryer door and send full model number if it heats for a while you have bad gas coils,when you change them out watch out for the coil with three prongs on it,there is a metal piece that sometime gets stuck in old coil when you remove it,if it happens just poke it out of old coil and slide it back on post where new coil will be installed

Maytag Dryer has lost heat...

I would think the timer is not used but a humidifier when on auto dry mode. Check the humidistat, should be either make or break contacts, open or closed.

Dryer is gas model dg212 flame come on but will not stay on long enough to dry clothes

if burner lights but fails to relight after several shut offs suspect burners solenoids change both they come in a kit ..once the solenoids get hot they will sometimes open electrically and fail to reenergize after cool down they will open gas valve and alow burner to reignite..also be sure vent to outside to clean and vent behind dryer is not flattened or kinked has know flame to not be properly burning due to exhaust problems and flame sensor would shut burner down
