Well if your dryer tumbles, but there is no heat then you may please check out the following - 1. First of all you can check out for proper air flow - Check the vent for proper air flow by placing your hand over the exterior vent while the dryer is running. You should feel a strong flow of air. If not then check the lint trap. It is located either on top of the dryer or possibly just inside the door. Remove any lint that has built up in the lint trap. Cleaning the lint trap should be done regularly, even as often as after every load. Do not operate the dryer without a lint trap in place. 2. Secondly you can check out the Ignitor - gas dryer blows air through a burner assembly to heat the air. The burner assembly consists essentially of a gas valve, ignitor and a flame sensor. If any part of the burner assembly malfunctions, the result will be low or no heat and slow drying of the clothes. Post comments for further help or information.....
The heat is supplied from the gas burner.
1- If the ignitor is not on because the filament is broken then the burner is not working.
2- If the ignitor is working but the thermal sensor is broken then the gas valve is not open to sustain the flame in the burner so there will be no heat. Need to check these by accessing the back panel. Good luck
change the coils on valve / very common problem . they get hot after first burn then donot open again . you can ck this by watching the ign turn on it will get hot and when it goes out the burner should light but does not . . usualy after about 5 min ob run time .,.mm pls feed back .
Try vacuuming the burner exhaust and intake pipes of their lint collection. If these passages are partially plugged, the burner will short-cycle and not provide proper heat. Try washing the lint filter in hot water and detergent to remove fabric softener deposits. Hope this helps.
You may have aproblem withthe venting. Make sure the the fan can blow freely through and out the vent. If this gets parially blocked it cuts down the air flow and will make the dryer run too hot and keep the burner off. The other thing taht it could be is the temperature sensor that turns the gas burner on and off. Sometimes they will go bad and not let the burner stay on long enough to heat properly.
this is joyce
It is as you guessed your sensor. it is usually located in door but some models are in back of machine on inside, go online download document papers go to maytag.com put in model# and then download your model # and it will show you where your sensor is located, it should be simple to replace. I had the same problem with my dryer.
I am glad you said you checked the dryer lines because if these get clogged up they will cause the dryer not to dry the clothes correctley. very smart....if you need me to help let me know.
be sure burner is firing off every time it is supposed to if ignitor glows then shuts off without burner firing replace the coils on burner (2 black round things) if burner ok remove rear vent hose and try load without connected if works ok suspect flattened hose behind dryer or line to outside restricted
