Maytag dryer gas valve.

I took apart the 25M01A gas valve. I noticed one plunger has a longer stem than the other. Dose the longer stem go with the booster (3prong coil) or with the secondary 2 prong coil? Thanks LA

Position the unit so the two coils are closest to you and the single regulator valve is in the back, The longer valve goes on the left (single coil). The short valve goes on the right and works with the split coil.

i assume your dryer is not heating , i can troubleshoot with more details. you should not need to go as in depth as checking resistance until you eliminated the obvious. did the igniter glow white hot before you moved on to the gas valve? what is the reisistance on the igniter?

Black soot causing whites to be gray


I too have the same problem with my Admiral dryer. Have come to the conclusion that the soot is making all my clothes greyer, but just noticed it with my whites. Took apart my dryer today and first of all found that the outlet below the lint vent was plugged. There is no soot on the outside of the drum or the dryer housing...however there is soot within the metal tube that surrounds the gas burner. Seems the gas is not being burned properly or the plugged lint trap was not letting the burned gases escape??? Laura

Can't get the gas valve to release fuel when trying to light the pilot. took apart the line and there is gas, but the valve won't release when I press the plunger in. coleman trailer furnace was turned off...


Possible bad gas valve. When a gas valve fails it fails in the closed position. If you cannot get gas out of the pilot light chances are gas valve is bad. Call a service tech for freee estimate. Rus

Maytag Gas Dryer doesn't heat up


The igniter is the part that ignites the gas in the Maytag gas dryer. Long time a go the dryers use to have a pilots. The pilots where on all the time, even when the dryer was not been use.

This wasted a lot of gas and a new design was needed. That is when the igniter or glow bar as is also known, came to be. A bad igniter could be the reason for your Maytag gas dryer not heating.




The radiant sensor is a small black box that attaches to the combustion funnel. The job of the radiant sensor is to allow the igniter to glow until it is real hot, then it shuts the igniter off and opens the gas valve to start the heating process. A bad radiant sensor could the the reason for your Maytag gas dryer not heating.




The gas valve has two coils or solenoids. These coils job is to open the gas chambers inside of the gas valve.

When one of the coils goes bad, the symptom is that the igniter glows, but the gas valve won't open to let the gas flow through the gas chamber to be ignited.

A bad set of coils could be the reason for your Maytag gas dryer not heating.




The hi-limit thermostat is located on top of the combustion funnel, and its job is to open the circuit to the gas valve if the airflow to the dryer is restricted for any reason.




The cycling thermostat is use to control the temperature inside of the dryer. It is factory preset at 155 degree, in other words it will open the circuit to the gas valve when the temperature reaches 155 degrees.

This thermostat is opening and closing all the time the dryer running. A bad cycling thermostat could be the reason for your Maytag gas dryer not heating.




The timer is the part that direct the electricity to the other parts in the dryer. This part works very hard and the contacts wear out and some times they burn out. If the timer contacts won't close, the dryer will not heat.




The motor switch is another safety device that only closes the heating circuit when the motor is running. When the motor is not running the circuit of the gas valve is open and the dryer will not heat. A bad motor switch could be the cause for your Maytag gas dryer not heating.

As you could see, there are a lot of parts inside of the dryer that have to be in good working condition for the dryer to produce heat.

Maytag gas dryer did not work properly


so from my understanding you replaced both gas valve coils???? yes,do you have an ohm meter.it dosen't happen often but they could be defective.next if your house venting or dryer was very!!!!!!!!,it would have tobe very blocked up.the heat would open the safty thermo and stop the burner from firing.as a appliance doctor i would take your dryers temputure .lol.. but realy..how hot dose it get.not hot,ok the then dose the voltage drop out at the valve when the coils go out??if it dose its in the other componets before the valve.but if voltage stays presant when coil stops its in the valve area.manufactures used to have connector coming to the valve from the top side[newer dryers they are saving money and left it out then connections would be at the coils]put you volt meter probes there at connector.thats how it works.i had a thought on how to check the flame switch.its the box on the side of the flame tube,black with two wires.after the burner lites[you got to be careful]pull one of those wires off[its hot 110 volts]thats a rare problem but i've had to replace a few over the years[so they do go bad]if after pulling off dryer then works open the door and the power stops to that wire.[also with the power off i might loosen that flame switch wire so comes off eazy when pulled.if any other questions please feel free to email God bless ,tom
