My Maytag gas dryer won't heat. I have replaced the gas solenoids, If I tap the gas valve it lights. Old solenoids check out with correct ohms.

Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.



if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....



If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

Maytag gas dryer. Loud buzzing sound when flame comes on. Buzzing stops when gas valve off. Replaced solenoids twice. Dryer works but the buzzing is annoying. Do I need to replace gas valve assembly?


While you are hearing the buzzing, tap the gas valve (gently) to find out whether the buzzing changes. If so, the valve is the culprit.

My lg gas dryer model no dlg3744w will not heat


There are three high limit thermostats. Check all three for continuity. They should read closed (0 ohms). Check the flame sensor. They're cheap so you could just replace. It needs to close before the first solenoid opens and then open before the second solenoid opens. Again, easier to replace. Check continuity on the solenoid coils. They should read 1.5 K ohms. I replaced two gas valves before I recognized a "new" gas valve might not be really new.

No dryer heat


If the coils are bad the unit will light with flame for 4 - 8 times then all of a sudden the ignitor will glow, kick off with no gas coming threw valve. it sounds like the high limit thermostat is short cycling the flame. This is the thermostat that sits on top of the burner chamber. remove 1 screw from the thermostat and blend it upwards away from the heat. Then plug unit back in and test to see if the flame stays on longer. Click here to see maytag dryer no heat posts. Contact me anytime here. Hope this helps..

Maytag DG410 gas dryer-no flame, no heat. I replaced the ignitor - that apparently isn't the problem. Other ideas?


Motor runs, but main burner will not ignite
1.heat switch set wrong---correct switch setting
2.defective timer or timer circuit---check timer wiring--replace timer motor or switch as needed
3.defective centrifugal switch in motor---clean switch or replace as needed
4.gas supply valve closed----open gas valve
5.inoperative solenoid coil---test coil for open circuit & the voltage to it
???
Pilot burner goes out
1.insufficient gas supply---- low gas pressure or clogged pilot filter or partially closed gas valve
2.carbon deposit on thermocouple tube---clean tube & check pilot burner for proper combustion
3.improperly adjusted pilot flame--adjust pilot flame until faint yellow tip begins to appear
4.faulty ignition or reset valve or thermocouple---replace

Clothes not drying, but dryer runs & heats
1.defective operating thermostat---test thermostat, replace if defective
2.fan or it's pulley loose on shaft---tighten set screw
3.incorrect heat or timer settings---reset timer
4.clothes to wet when placed in dryer----wring out or extract water from clothes before placing in dryer
5.clogged lint screen or duct (little air motion)---clean out lint screen & duct

My maytag mdg4000 will not heat. all the lights are on . drum turns.gas connection is good


First, check the ignitor and see if it is working. It should glow visibly if it is working. If the ignitor is working, but the burner won't light, the most likely cause are the gas valve coils. These electrical coils are located right above the gas valves. When energized, these solenoids open the gas valves and permit the burner to light. If defective, they don't permit the gas valves to open. Due to the difficulty in testing these solenoids, it is recommended that both (all) be replaced at once if any are suspected of being faulty. Hope this helped and best wishes.

There is no heat on Maytag gas drier. I see the ignition glowing but no fire. But some times the fire starts for one minute, then goes off. I am not sure of the model # below,

No Heat on a whirlpool dryer. 14 years old.drum turns,timer moves,getting gas to valve,tapped solenoids-no change.burner not lighting. thanks for any info


if ignitor not coming on could be flame sensor mounted on side of burner housing or ignitor ..if ignitor glowing but burner no lighting replace both solenoids bad connections interally on solenoids..also if ignitor not glowing possible small white thermal fuse open.. sensor and fuse can be jumped across to confirm ..
