Question about Maytag MDG7600AW Gas Dryer

1 Answer

I have a older Maytag gas dryer DG612. The igniter comes on the gas lights, runs for about 5 seconds then shuts off. The process repets its self over and over again. It is trying to start but shuts off the gas after 5 seconds every time. I have replaced both solinoid coils without change. Could it be the flame (optical I think) detector?

Hi, If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes 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 differentthings that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat. check out this electric no heat tip...

Very common problem. The solenoids when cold will sometime work once then get hot and fail. Replace the coils. I made a short video which shows how it works and how to replace the coils on a similar dryer with the same type of solenoids:
