If heat works, and vent is definitely not an issue, i would look to replacing the valve coils(279834), the coils heating up and not allowing the valve to re-open on subsequent tries through length of cycle. $20 repair

Maytag DG410 gas dryer-no flame, no heat. I replaced the ignitor - that apparently isn't the problem. Other ideas?


Motor runs, but main burner will not ignite
1.heat switch set wrong---correct switch setting
2.defective timer or timer circuit---check timer wiring--replace timer motor or switch as needed
3.defective centrifugal switch in motor---clean switch or replace as needed
4.gas supply valve closed----open gas valve
5.inoperative solenoid coil---test coil for open circuit & the voltage to it
???
Pilot burner goes out
1.insufficient gas supply---- low gas pressure or clogged pilot filter or partially closed gas valve
2.carbon deposit on thermocouple tube---clean tube & check pilot burner for proper combustion
3.improperly adjusted pilot flame--adjust pilot flame until faint yellow tip begins to appear
4.faulty ignition or reset valve or thermocouple---replace

Clothes not drying, but dryer runs & heats
1.defective operating thermostat---test thermostat, replace if defective
2.fan or it's pulley loose on shaft---tighten set screw
3.incorrect heat or timer settings---reset timer
4.clothes to wet when placed in dryer----wring out or extract water from clothes before placing in dryer
5.clogged lint screen or duct (little air motion)---clean out lint screen & duct

My maytag atlantis dryer heats up but on any cycle the dryer doesnt run long enough to dry the clothes i have to turn it on two or more times to dry clothes


Hi,

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have nottaken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then youneed to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should takeplace. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causesfor your dryer to fail.

Problem with the Maytag Neptune MDG6700A Gas Dryer WHEN STARTED HEATS UP THEN NO HEAT AT ALL. MAYTAG MDG6700AWW


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

When the dryer heats for few minutes and then it won't work it means that the thermostat is bad and needs replacement. This part is located on the blower wheel housing inside the duct, you can also check this part for continuity before replacing. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Gas will come on and heat for a few minutes and then go out


you either have bad gas coils if it heats for the first 15 to 30 minutes and then the flame doesn't lite any more or you need to clean out the dryer because there is a blocked vent line or duct stopping the air from moving through the dryer and then to the outside.you need to clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,vac out the inside of dryer where the motor is and if the vent line is long i use a leaf blower to blow out the vent line.unplug the dryer when ever you're working on it

Dryer heats once or twice then stops heating


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 12001348.

Disconnect power and turn off gas before working on this dryer. Working on gas dryers is not recommended for people who are not professionals.

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

The disassembly procedure is covered beginning on page 3-10 of the manual listed at the link below. Operation and replacement of coils is covered at page 3-32. Replace All coils with Kit Number listed above. Take care not to touch or hit the ignitor or you will be replacing it also. It is VERY brittle.


Reverse process to re-assemble. Good Luck

WILL NOT DRY


Check that the dryer duct at the back where it connects the dryer to the wall has not collapsed to restrict air movement to the house vent duct.

Check that the vent duct all the way to the outside of the house is not fully or partially restricted in any way.

Make sure the lint screen is clean.

Make sure there is no buildup of lint inside the dryer where the heat enter the drum.

You should be able to walk outside with the dryer running, and feel a blast of air exiting the dryer vent. If not, find the restriction.

A dryer warming up, and then shutting down is normally a sign of a restricted vent duct at some point in the system. Particularly if nothing is done, and the dryer heats up momentarily when the cycle is tried again.
