remove the exhaust tube from the rear of the dryer and try again for heat. If it works the tubing needs to be cleaned out thoroughly., Also upon starting you should her a click which is the ignitor firing up the burner. If not heard within one minute the ignitor is at fault

My Maytag Neptune dryer model mdg5500aww has no heat when running . ignitor never gets red. there's gas to the unit and 110 volts. there really not much lint in there. is the problem the flame sensor?


If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....

If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

check out this electric no heat tip...

Mdg5500aww lp gas dryer heating problem it fires once but dosent burn long clothes dont dry help

When a gas dryer starts and the burner does not stay lit more than one minute the flame sensor is not detecting the flame to as a by design safety feature the burner is automatically shut off. It is not sensing flame so it is shut off.

This is the most likely suspect.

BEFORE you change this part make sure that the outside vent flapper and the ducting form the back of the dryer is free of lint. Disconnect the dryer vent and try it with nothing connected to the dryer. Also check around the lint filter area for lint especially in the bottom. If there is not a lint or ducting problem then by all means change the flame sensor.

Thanks for using FixYa!

Maytag mdg5500aww gas dryer sensor

First of all shut off the power by pulling out the plug.

If you are sure of the sensor issue then you need to remove four screws on the inside of the door. Two screws are located on the left and two on the right, look at the hinge and you will find two. The door will lift out when you remove the screws. When the screws are out of the front, the front panel can be remove by pulling on the outside surface.
