Question about Maytag HYG2460AWW Gas Dryer
Sometimes, when the gas burner flame comes on, there is a loud buzzing noise that is coming from the burner area of the dryer. It starts as soon as the flame starts and stops as soon as the flame stops. The loud buzzing sound does not occur all of the time but seems to happen more often after the first or second loads are finished (we normally do about 8 loads a week – all on the same day). The noise sounds like some type of actuator or valve noise. I have taken off the front cover and have observed the burner coming on and off with the buzzing noise but just can not pinpoint where it is coming from.
The clothes are dried fine - does not seem to take longer than usual, but it definitely is not doing something right.
The noise you are describing is coming from the gas valve solenoid coil assembly. This is usually indicative of weak coil.
If this is a warranty situation, request a factory authorized certified technician to replace the solenoid assy. at no charge.
If you want to fix it yourself, be sure and ask us for instructions on replacing the part safely.
