The igniter can be accessed for replacement through the front of the dryer by removing the front panel. Once the front panel is removed, unplug the igniter from the gas valve assembly then remove the screws securing it to the burner assembly. Secure the new igniter in place then plug it to the gas valve assembly. Disconnect power to the dryer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock. Take extra care in handling the igniter to avoid breaking it into pieces due to its fragility.

The front panel can be removed by removing the four screws located vertically along the inside lip of the door opening. These screws hold the front panel to the front shroud assembly.

Once the four screws are removed, grasp and press in on the upper edges of the front panel posts then twist it inward to release the clips holding it to the cabinet. Tilt the top of the front panel and move it away from the dryer. Follow these steps in reverse order when reinstalling the front panel.

Matag dryer not heating


Here is a link to maytag dryer repairs http://apcoappliancerepair.wordpress.com/?s=maytag+dryer . The most common problem is the thermal fuse. My question is. Does the heating element start to light. If not...... and you have changed the ignitor and thermal fuse. Then check the flame sensor to see if there is continuity threw it. Power to the gas coils and ignitor runs threw the flame sensor. CLICK HERE to see a flame sensor on a GE dryer. They are the same on most units but Maytag will be on the opposite side of burner chamber.

Maytag MCG8000AWW gas dryer no heat


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.

Maytag gas dryer, ignitor comes on, gas valve opens, ignites gas, runs for 30 sec the shuts down. Replaced hi temp fuse & thermostat. What next?


Hi,
Try the ignitor... As crazy as it may seem the ignitor can be bad even if it works....
This will get your dryer back to normal again.

I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!!

Maytag dryer pilot light


You might have a hot surface ignitor that if broken can fall off and be somewhat difficult to locate by sight having never replaced one before.
Look at the new parts base as thats all you may have showing.
The ignitor regarless of type is very close to the gas manifold temination
going into the combustion compartment.
Replacing the new ignitor BE CAREFUL not to touch or bump the ignitors surface or it may fry out before you leave! they break easily!
I would use magnetic nutdrivers, its either 1/4 or 5/16 inch on most everything, very handy for furnace and AC work too

My Maytag model # mdg6000bww doesn't heat up?


First thing to check is the ignitor underneath the drum. (You have to open the panel to see it) It should glow shortly after the dryer starts, then the flame starts and the ignitor shuts off. If the ignitor does not glow then it or the thermostat is bad. If the ignitor is glowing but the gas does not light then the gas valve coils may have to be replaced. If the gas ignites but does not stay on either the flame sensor or the coils are at fault.
