Question about Dryers

1 Answer

I have a Maytag Gas Dryer Model# MDG508DAWW. It comes on and tumbles but won't heat up. I bumped the back of it with my hand and it came on and got hot then a few minutes later it started getting cold again and won't get hot anymore?

Tumbles but does not dry


When you put your wet cloths in the dryer close the door. You should then turn on the dry cycle you wish, not the fluff option as there will be only air and gas dryer will not heat the cloths. Wait 30 ~ seconds after the dryer is turned on and listen for the gas to ignite and begin warming and drying the cloths. If you hear no bump sound like the ignition of the gas, then you have an ignition issue. It will require replacing the ignitor. All the best and good luck. Hope this helped.

I have the Maytag MCG8000AWW gas "drying center", it tumbles but does not have any heat. The burner lights when the cycle is started, and for a few minutes it does heat. Then the humidity indicator changes...


Hi,
If you have a gas dryer2_bing.gif.
The most common problem with a gas and no heat is the ignitor going bad...

Maytag proforma gas dryer no heat


The model says electric and is listed as gas. If it is electric. Move all the settings (exercise the controls) If that does not work Turn both of the breakers off at your electric panel and back on. If one feels loose you know it may have tripped and you just reset it. Your drier will work fine now. Just turn it on.

Check your fuses or breaker...If you have fuses, replace both 30 amp fuses. If you have breakers, flip breaker to OFF then back to ON, then try your dryer to see if it heats.
