Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. From what you have described it seems to be the Thermal fuse that has gone bad. The thermal fuse is mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. When this fuse goes bad it should be replaced as it cannot be repaired. You can test it for continuity between its two pins, no continuity means bad fuse. If this is fine then you?ll need to check the thermostat, igniter and coils. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

with front off it will short cycle. If ignitor glows and then goes out without lighting, you have bad burner coils. The 2 black round things on burner assembly. Unplug unit then unplug coils and remove bracket with 2 screws. install coils and test.

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...

How to check the igniter (continuity?)


If there is power to the ignitor and it does not glow the ignitor is bad. If it does glow,place a clamp on amp meter over one wire of the ignitor and turn the circuit on. If the ignitor reads less than 3 amps,replace the ignitor.
If the ignitor glows and registers 3 amps or more you must check the flame sensor for correct operation. If the ignitor and flame sensor are both good,replace the gas valve coils.

There is no heat on Maytag gas drier. I see the ignition glowing but no fire. But some times the fire starts for one minute, then goes off. I am not sure of the model # below,


If the ignitor is glowing, the problem is most likely the gas valve coils. These electrical coils are located right above the gas valves. When energized, these solenoids open the gas valves and permit the burner to light. Due to the difficulty in testing these solenoids, it is recommended that both (all) be replaced at the same time if any are suspected of being faulty. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Dryer's flame cycles but will not burn


Check the following to address this issue..


1. Gas valve coils
Igniter glows, then shuts off without igniting gas - the problem is probably with defective coils (black, located on top of the gas valve). It is recommended to replace all coils (usually two or three) if found defective.

Note: Sometimes the whole gas valve may be defective, thus not letting the gas out. However, this problem is not common.

2. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.

3. Igniter
Igniter may burn out or break. Replace the igniter if found defective.

Note: Igniters are very fragile and break easily. It is recommended to handle the igniter only touching the ceramic part of it (usually white in color).

4. Flame sensor (or radiant heat sensor)
Replace the sensor (located near the igniter) if found defective.
