Question about Dryers

Open Question

Maytag Atlantis gas dryer Model # MDG7658AWW. No longer heats up. Would like to fix it myself if possible as it is no longer under warranty and can't really afford a repair man at this time. Worked just fine the other day but won't heat up at all now. I have removed and replaced the venting to outside so that is completely clear (clog free) but that has not solved the problem. What part do I need to replace and where is it located.thanks

SOURCE: how do i side vent my maytag atlantis electric

Attached is a link to a diagram of your dryer.

http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5170653

You would have to remove the back panel. Remove the existing vent pipe, install a 90 deg elbow of the same size diameter. Then cut a hole in the right or left side of the dryer cabinet that would line up with the new elbow.
Check the side cabnet of your dryer, it appears on the diagram that there may be a 4" knock out for a side exit vent.
Good luck, let me know.
Regards,

SOURCE: not getting hot. vent line is free of lint. Maytag

Chances are the hot surface glow igniter is not working. Most likely it is burned out. Set the controls to dry in high heat and note if the glowing coil does in fact glow. If not, it needs to be replaced. Open the burner access door and then turn the dryer on. Watch inside the burner compartment for the glow coil to light up and glow. If all the controls are set correctly on the front control panel and the dryer is running, but the glow coil fails to glow, you've located the defective part. The glow coil will need to be replaced.
To remove the coil, turn off the gas first. Unplug the dryer from the electrical wall plug. Then remove the entire gas valve as an assembly. The nut on the gas valve to remove it from the gas supply pipe turns counter clockwise. There will be small sheet metal screws used to secure the plate to which the burner assembly parts are attached. The plate holds the entire assembly and is attached to the bottom of the dryer's cabinet.
Next, remove the glow coil from the burner assembly. Take the entire assembled part to the local appliance retail parts store for a replacement coil. Glow igniters are fragile and they break easily. Handle and install the new igniter carefully. Glow igniters are a non-returnable and non-refundable electric component.
Be advised that some new replacement igniters do not come with quick disconnect ends. In this case, it is OK to cut off the quick, disconnect from the old igniter and attach it to the new igniter. Simply clip off the wires several inches above, disconnect the old igniter, attach to the wires of the new igniter, and wire nut the two ends together. Repeat the process to attach the other set of wires and wire nut them together. There is no positive nor negative polarity to be concerned with.
Additional Suggestions: Read the manufacturer's online Web site for product information, problem possibilities, causes and solving methods, part locations, disassembly, reassembly methods, repair procedures, instructions, pictorials and schematics, which may be available online.

You either have an issue with your cycling thermostat, or the gas valve solenoids. I could get into a very lengthy explanation as to what to do to diagnose, but for what these two items will probably cost you to buy, I would change both.

Problem is not with the thermals. You gas coils on the valve have gone bad. Replace both of them and you will be fine. Very inexpensive repair. Part number is 12001349 at approx. $45.00.

Replacing Timer on Maytag Atlantis Dryer


Call a local appliance shop and ask about it. Maytag is pretty common and available. The timer will be about 75 dollars. It could be more depending on what all you have on it. It is pretty easy to replace once you get to it. Let me know how this turns out.

Your heating element is going out. If your dryer is still under warranty, contact the manufacturer and let them know what's going on. They should send you a replacement part, or should send a technician to fix it.
