  • David Ransom Jun 02, 2010

    when you say not heating correctly what does that mean..its not heating at all. it gets hot but the clothes don't get dry? heats only sometimes. if the unit is getting hot but clothes are not coming out dry or it takes hours to dry the clothes i would check you dryer vent and check it where if got out of the house as well you might need a drier vent clean pending how it is ran

Mdg3000aww gas dryer. drum turns. ignitor glows and goes off but no flame.

I suppose you made sure the gas is on. The valve probably has two valve coils sitting on top; one is a dual coil. My guess is that one coil is "open" (no continuity).

My Maytag Neptune Model MDG3000AWW will heat initially but not maintain high heat. About 5 years ago, the Thermistor Sensor was replaced. Any help would be appreciated.

if it heats for the first 15 to 30 minutes and then no heat you have bad gas coils,when the coils are starting to fail they will work like normal until they heat up and then they fail,they will work again when they cool down and then fail again when heated up.unplug the dryer and remove the two phillips screws that hold the door on and remove the door.also remove the two screws opposite the door screws and grab the right and left part of the frame and pull it forwards to remove'll see the gas valve and the two coils are on top of it.just remove the two phillips screws,remove the cover and change out the coils,do them one at a time because they are different,one has three prongs and the other has two.while you have the dryer open vac it out,if you have a shop vac you can blow the lint from the back to the front and vac it out,also blow off the motor,alot of lint gets stuck in the motor.clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into and if you have a long vent line,remove it from the back of the dryer and blow it out with a leaf blower,you have an open flame in there and i've seen them catch fire,also if you do this once a year you'll never have any problems with the dryer and your clothes will dry on time,let me know how you make out and good luck.

Neptune mdg3000aww starts heating and runs fine but stops heating shortly after start up can restart heater starts again and shuts down

If the machine keeps running but just not heating you have a thermostat issue. It could be the operating therm. or the high temp limit therm malfunctioning, shutting off the element.

If the machine stops running completely, check the door switch.

My maytag neptune gas dryer model #MDG3000AWW When I push the start button on my maytag neptune dryer it sounds like it wants to start but doesn't and then it gets this smell like something is burning?...

It sounds like the drum bearings are seizing up preventing the drum from rolling easily, and when the motor runs, it can't pull the drum belt around the drum that won't turn, so starts squealing and burning the belt.

You need to lubricate/replace the drum bearings, and replace the belt.

Maytag gas dryer runs, doesn't dry

Check in the hole where the screen goes for blockage. Many times debries falls in there when removing screen. It cant make it out of the vent so it builds up and clogs the vent.

Maytag MDG3000AWW drum moving slowly

If the belt looks worn you should replace it. But it sounds like the idler pulley has gone out of position or possibly broken. The idler pulley adds tension to the belt and keeps it from spinning on the drum surface. Check the path of the belt on the bottom of the dryer. That is where the idler pulley is.
