Question about Dryers

1 Answer

I have a Maytag Nepyune dryer model# MDG4000BWW. The drum turns, the ignitor glows but the gas does not always ignite. When the ignitor is glowing, if I wiggle the wire going into the 2 prong coil, I here a click & the gas ignites - but not for long - it just goes out again. I replaced both coils (the 2 prong & the 3 prong, but that didn't help. Now even wiggling the 2 prong wire dos't work. Where do I go from here

Hi,
If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....

If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

check out this electric no heat tip...

Gas dryer 4 yrs young and won't heat. Drum turns.


First thing to check is the ignitor underneath the drum. (You have to open the panel to see it) It should glow shortly after the dryer starts, then the flame starts and the ignitor shuts off. If the ignitor does not glow then it or the thermostat is bad. If the ignitor is glowing but the gas does not light then the flame sensor may have to be replaced. If the gas ignites but does not stay on either the flame sensor or the coils are at fault.

I have maytag dryer and it is blowing cold air. Everything else is working.


If there is no heat then the thermostat or heating element (for an electric dryer) is not working.
If a gas dryer with no heat: Check the ignitor underneath the drum. (You have to open the panel to see it) It should glow shortly after the dryer starts, then the flame starts and the ignitor shuts off. If the ignitor does not glow then it or the thermostat is bad. If the ignitor is glowing but the gas does not light then the flame sensor may have to be replaced. If the gas ignites but does not stay on either the flame sensor or the coils are at fault.

Gas keeps shuting down and not heating the air


First thing to check is the ignitor underneath the drum. (You have to open the panel to see it)  It should glow shortly after the dryer starts, then the flame starts and the ignitor shuts off.  If the ignitor does not glow then it or the thermostat is bad.  If the ignitor is glowing but the gas does not light then the gas valve coils may have to be replaced.   If the gas ignites but does not stay on either the flame sensor or the coils are at fault.  If the gas ignites but the cycle stops and repeats quickly the lint filter, exhaust vent or outlet may be clogged.
