Question about Maytag Atlantis MDG6400AW Gas Dryer

Maytag Atlantis Gas Dryer

I have had a service man come and fix it but he didn't. He canceled payment.

At first He thought it was the sensor for the glow bar because it worked after he opened it and cleaned it off.
Then he thought it might be the vent which is all clear.
After he left I put a load of wet clothes in and heard the flame come on but the heat did not continue to cycle through to dry the clothes.
I have tried it on all cycles and nothing.
I even took the front off while there were a few dry clothes in and cleaned the sensor and started it up and watched the flame come on again.
I put the front back on put some wet clothes in and heard the flame come on and still no continued cycle of heat to dry clothes.
Any advice?

I love the Maytag Atlantis!!! This sounds like your motor may be bad. It's NOT the element or it would not heat at all. Hope this helps!

How do I replace the gas valve coils on my maytag atlantis gas dryer?


usually the gas valve is not the issue on these dryers after ten years of doing service calls i have only ever changed one. have you replaced the element that lights the gas? they have to see a certain resistance before they will open the gas valve. these will usually develop a hairline crack they will still glow red but not open the valve. when you replace it make sure you do not touch the element as this will shorten its life.

Maytag atlantis gas dryer, will start, heat up but then no heat


Try running it with the vent disconnected and feel the air coming out of the dryer. It should have good flow. If it dries good, your pipe may be clogged.

Maytag dryer wont shut off


Is it an auto sensor shut off? If so, it may be that your hose is plugged and so actually takes that long to dry the clothes.

I have a Maytag Atlantis Gas Dryer that will turn on, rotate, but will not get hot and dry the clothes. A load of clothes in the afternoon, didn’t dry, tried again but didn’t dry – went to bed after putting on auto dry - next morning the dryer was still rotating and didn’t turn off. No hot air – only cold air.

timeout...I'm guessing you mean that the timer on off doesn't turn anything off. If this is a mechanical timer unit, the contacts are welded. If electronic, your relay is probably welded. Replace the item. If you do go inside, unplug the unit, and then find the relay or contact set and see if they are actually welded. Most units have a diagram on the back. Follow it through with a multitester.
