Question about Maytag Neptune MCG8000AW Gas Dryer

1 Answer

I have the Maytag MCG8000AWW gas "drying center", it tumbles but does not have any heat. The burner lights when the cycle is started, and for a few minutes it does heat. Then the humidity indicator changes to "damp" and the burner shuts down. New humidity sensor did not help.

The ignitor may be bad you can chek to see if there is 110volts when the dryer is allin by unplugging the wire to the ignitor and putting using a multimeter to chek for voltage at the wires. If there is power to the ignitor and the ignitor is not glowing up then the ignitor is probably bad replace the ignitor.

Replace both coils on the burner valve . After heating up , they will not open to let gas thru again until cooled down for a short period of time . With no heat , timer will not cut off unless set for timed dry .

Takes 3-4 cycles to dry one load. Heating element lights up, but does not always light flame


there is a few things to check---first check the exhaust tubes to make sure they are clear of lint,and blowing through good,if not then the dryer will overheat shutting down the gas valve---if that doesnt do it then replace the heat switch located back by the burner,if that doesnt help then last case it would be the magnetic coils on the gas valve need replacing.

Stops heatinng


Hi, first thing to check is the venting. If the vent is plugged, it will cause the heat to short cycle.
If later in the cycle, the ignitor glows but will not ignite the gas, you will need to change the coils on top the gas valve. This is a common problem.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thanks
