Question about Maytag Neptune MDG5500AW Gas Dryer
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 it.you'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.
