Sounds like you could have a major clog in the blower wheel. Or the wheel could be loose on the motor shaft.

The procedure to reach the blower wheel depends on the model. I can walk you through it if you post the model number. (nameplate inside door, or on the top back left behind the console.)

Maytag ldg7500aaw gas dryer. I have replaced the coils, checked the flame sensor and the other sensor on the flame tube. It still ignites then goes off.


Hi,
How long does the flame stay on? Burner parts, you may have a air flow issue, disconnect the vent from the back of the unit. run the unit. If the unit runs better, the issue is not in the dryer. If while disconnected the unit fail to still run, the problem is internal and will need to be taken apart to clean out the vent system in the door area.
Good Luck

My Maytag gas dryer model LDG9801AAL has irregular heating. The flame is not 100% bluish even after I cleaned the igniter glowbar. I already changed the dryer sensor but the flame keeps getting shut off...


if the flame is liting the ignotor is good,if the flame goea out after a minute or so then you have to clean out the dryer,unplug it,clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,clean out the cabinet where the motor is and if the vent line is a long run i use a leaf blower to blow it out,pull it off the back of the dryer,stick the leaf blower into the vent and blow all the lint outside.one more thing if the flame lites and after 10 to 30 minutes thee flame doesn't lite anymore you have bad gas coils you can remove the cover down on the bottom right side of the front panel to check this,also you should clean this dryer at least once a year so you don't have a fire and your clothes will dry on time,pull the vent line off the back and see if it runs any better but you still have to clean the lint filter duct too,the block could be in there,bad air movement will cause this to happen.let me know how you make out.

No Heat - Maytag Dryer - Model# SDG3606AWW - Gas Line OK - Clear Vent - Do not see any flame after removing front panel. Igniter glows but then cools down no flame


Hi,

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...

Dryer ignites, then flame goe out, goo air leaving


If the gas ignites but does not stay on the gas valve secondary coil is at fault. Replacement kit includes both coils prewired. Note wire connections to original before removing as replacement kit may have different wire colors.

Dryer runs ,heats up flame goes off after 30 secs won't relight


Seems to be a problem with the bas valves....you shouldve seen them in front of ignitor...will show similar signs of ignitor. part#306106 AND 306105. come off easily with a few screws and just slide over valve assembly.

Dryer flame shuts off after about 30 seconds


this sounds like a clogged vent more than a thermostat. go outside with the dryer running and see if hot air is blowing out the vent. if not check outside vent for birds nest etc, inside make sure the vent is straight any dips in vent could cause water to build up clogging the vent. try this first if it doesn't work write back

Maytag dryer


need to question why you think its not a venting issue, did you try without vent attached???, cuase it definitly sounds like an air flow issue. if doing that diconnected i would look into possible the blower wheel housing is not sealing correctly and your suckin the air towards it(highly unlikely) cant see the wheel coming off . gotta say air flow issue!!!
