Question about Maytag Dryers

I have Maytag model no. MDG6200AWW. I think it is about 7 years old. It has a gas leak inside the dryer, the gas company said and the smell was really bad. Is it worth getting repaired?

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. It seems an issue with the gas valve, burner and/or coils going bad and should be replaced. It really depends on the service charge; you might have to pay around $200-$300 (including labor) depending on the parts that are replaced so I'll say it really depends on you what you need to do. Please accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Thanks

Gas smell in maytag dryer


You have a gas leak from the gas valve being faulty. DO NOT use the dryer until you have replaced the valve! I have been doing appliance repair for 15 years and I have seen 7 homes that have burned down due to this very same problem. Please don't use the dryer! Here is the new gas valve to order.
Keep me posted!

Hi,

Maytag gas dryer MDG6400AWW heats up for 2 minutes and that's it everything else runs. and twice I smelled gas when I opened the dryer door. the timer was replaced 2 years ago. Is there another problem?


turn gas off to dryer. For safety it is best not to wait get your gas company to find leak(i don't think they charge for that)if it is at the control valve you should take the screws that hold the coils down out.Remove coils and rubber O rings and replace all with new ones it comes as a kit

Gas dryer work but doesn't get hot


Tell your natural gas company that you smell gas around your gas dryer and you think there may be a leak. They will send somebody out, at no cost to you to check on the appliance (gas dryer). When that person gets there, they will re-light your appliance and if the gas dryer needs a new thermal coupler, they will show you where it's at and how to replace it.
