    Maytag dryer MDG16CS will not turn off. You can start the dryer just by hitting the start button and not putting in any money,

    I have a Maytag MDG16CS gas commercial dryer and you can start it by pressing the start button without putting in any coins. You can hear the timer clicking the way it used to when you inserted coins. Now the timer just runs indefinitely so no coins are needed to start it. Does anyone know how to fix this? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The coin operator timer consists of several small plastic gears. The teeth on the last plastic gear gets all chewed up so that the timer continues to run and unable to open the circuit which stops the dryer timer. Although the plastic gear probably costs pennies, your will need to order part number 33001275 torsion timer for about $75 - $110. Remove one screw & 3 clip-on wires - 15 min.

Maytag ldg26cs gas commercial dryer never shuts off, runs normally and drys clothes but never stops or goes into cooldown mode.

Sounds like timer is stuck in one place and not counting down, can it be done manually? If so replace timer.

Dryer won't shut off.

Will the timer advance in the NO HEAT mode? If it does advance you would know it has something to do with the temp alright but if it don't advance in No Heat then the timer motor is bad in my opinion. And it can fail by more than one way. Open winding OR stripped motor gear.

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 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

HI, i was an appliance technician for 8 years but seemed to be stumped> i have a maytag coin op dryer but the model # and wiring diagram are missing. its an older style with the big idler. anyways,...

One way you could isolate the problem is to unplug the quick connect to the transformer and take the heat portion out of the equation ( just to see if the dryer starts on it own only). If the starting on it own goes away then you have it somewhere in that portion of the cycle. Probably 2 wires rubbing somewhere. Why do we need a dang transformer in a dryer? That would be the suspect to me. Never even seen this before. Hope you get a solution. Hope you post it.

My maytag dependable care plus electric dryer doesn't shut off

Does the timer move when it's almost ready to shut off if not most likely need a timer. Can you turn it by hand to finish the cycle and shut it off. If not must be timer.
Hope this helps

Dryer does not heat.

It could be several other things thermal fuse, thermal cut out, hi limit thermostat, dryer coils, heat sensor,or ignitor. All of these parts are inexpensive and easy to test and replace.There is a free video at this will walk you thru the troubleshooting of these components. It may be a different model but the troubleshooting will be the same.You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations. Not all models are available. If you need help disassembling your machine there are videos of this also for most styles.
