My Maytag DG212 gas dryer is not drying well, the hose and vent are clear. What I see is the flame will only last 10 to 15 sec. and then go out.

Clothes come out of my gas dryer with a slight chemical smell


In my years of experience, the only situation like this resulted when painting had been done within the last 12 months. The flame burns off the VOCs. Beyond that, it's a stumper.

Gas lights up for about 5 minutes and then burns out. Try to turn on dryer again, but flame won't light. I let dryer sit for aout 30 minutes and turn on again - flame starts up, but will only last...


If the flame is shutting of before it reaches the operating temperatures the likely failure is a restricted venting system. There is a high limit thermostat that will cause the flame to shut off if there is a lack of airflow due to a restriction in the vent system. Remove the lint filter screen and clean in with soap and water. The filter may appear clean but it could have a clear film of fabric softener residue covering it causing a restriction in the air flow too. After cleaning the filter reinstall it before running the next test.

For testing purposes only, disconnect the dryer vent hose from the back of the dryer and put a normal load of clothes in the dryer and start the dryer. If the clothes dry in the normal amount of time that would confirm a restriction in the vent hose or the venting system. NOTE: Do not leave the vent hose disconnected after running the test. Reconnect the vent hose.

You will likely find the clothes drying in the normal amount of time indicating a restriction in the venting.

My maytag dryer is taking more time than usual to dry up clothing. Can anyone help identifying the problem and possible solution? Thank


you have to clean out the dryer and the vent line,unplug the dryer,remove the lint filter and then you need to remove and clean out the duct that the filter slides into,then vac out the cabinet where the motor is,go outside and check the vent,make sure it's clear,then remove the vent line from the back of the dryer,if it's a long vent line i use a leaf blower to blow out the line.also if you have a gas dryer,check it after 15 to 30 minutes to make sure the flame is still igniting,if the gas coils are bad they will fail when they heat up,when they heat up the flame doesn't lite until the coils cool down and your clothes will be warm but wet.you should clean the dryer once a year if it's gas and once every two years if it's electric,gas dryers have an open flame and the lint can catch fire easier than electric dryers,do this and your clothes will dry on time,no fires,save energy and money on your bill.good luck

Clothes not drying properly


Consider a blocked air flow/vent problem or bad gas valve selonoids. Important to check outside vent door if present to make sure it is opening all the way. If not the dryer goes off on thermal overload. If vent is clear consider selonoids located on top of gas valve held in place with 2 philip head screws. One has a two prong electrical plug and the other has a three. Last check Lp tank for gas. Thank you

Maytag gas dryer taking too long to dry clothes


Not too familliar with the gas temp either, but you should definitely take your lint filter out and clean it with soap and water. If you use dryer sheets, they can leave a clear film on your filter and it can be just as bad as a filter full of lint. Try this out, if it works, clean your filter periodically with soap and water to remove the chemical buildup.

Dryer is gas model dg212 flame come on but will not stay on long enough to dry clothes


if burner lights but fails to relight after several shut offs suspect burners solenoids change both they come in a kit ..once the solenoids get hot they will sometimes open electrically and fail to reenergize after cool down they will open gas valve and alow burner to reignite..also be sure vent to outside to clean and vent behind dryer is not flattened or kinked has know flame to not be properly burning due to exhaust problems and flame sensor would shut burner down
