If it did not come with the owners manual if you open up the dryer is sometimes is stuck in there with control panel when you take the cover off sounds like you may have a problem with your regulator tho.

Gas will not turn on to heat dryer...igniter is ok...tested that...got new solinoids for gas valve seems to be back to timer but do not know for sure took that apart and points seem to be ok no hot spots...


Sometimes the heat sensor/ igniter gets carboned up and needs to be lightly sanded or cleaned for it to sense heat. That could prevent the main gas valve from opening and staying open. Also, does your unit have a heat limit switch or thermal switch that could be faulty? Check the wiring diagram.

Firstly, ascertain that you have made a positive heat selection on the control panel temperature switch.
Below are some links, courtesy of www.repairclinic.com, that will assist you in diagnosing/repair of your dryer. You may have to enter your model number in the search box to access some of the information.

Below is a parts breakdown/disassembly procedure for your dryer.
http://www.repairclinic.com/Dryer-Gas-Maytag-Style-Appliance-Diagram

More information
If your dryer doesn't heat, check these first:

Igniter
Gas valve coils
Thermal fuse
Igniter http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-mdg9206aww-%3d%3di3018&PartID=3018 Modern gas dryers use an electric igniter to ignite the gas from the gas valve. When it's working properly, the igniter glows bright orange. When it burns out, the dryer tumbles but there's no heat because the gas can't ignite. When the igniter burns out, you need to replace it. If the igniter is held by a tension bracket, you very well may need to replace the bracket too.

The igniter is inside the dryer housing, near the bottom front, usually in a cone-shaped metal tube (the force cone). It's about 2 inches long. It's mounted to the far end of the burner tube, and it has two wires attached to it--or to the tension bracket, if there is one.

Gas valve coils http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-mdg9206aww-%3d%3di3479&PartID=3479
Watch the igniter. Does it glow bright orange, then shut off without igniting the gas? (When the gas ignites there's a large blue flame.) If so, there may be defective coils on the gas valve. Mounted on the top of modern gas valves, there are black electrical coils. The coils, when energized, open the gas valve. If one or more of the coils are defective, the valve doesn't open and the gas cannot ignite. Because it's often difficult to properly test the coils, it's usually best to replace both (all) of them at the same time.

Thermal fuse http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-mdg9206aww-%3d%3di516650&PartID=516650 On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing.

If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse to put the dryer back into operation. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.)

Dryer heats up ,then loses heat after 10 minutes


Based on your description, you may have a Gas Valve Coil failure. Below is a link, courtesy of www.repairclinic.com, showing the part(s) involved. http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=b4a8c237i3479&PartID=3479

More assistance below: You will need your model number to access the information.

1. A zero in the model number might be the letter O.
2. A lower case L might be a 1.
3. Some models have 3 digits and a period first, like this 555.66666666
Look for an aluminum tag--or a silver and white adhesive label in the locations illustrated below. The model number may be printed or stamped onto the tag and may be printed in different type sizes. NOTE: There may be partial model numbers on marketing stickers or in the owner's manual. These are often incomplete. For best results use the model number from the tag.

No heat


Based on your description, it sounds as if your gas valve coils may be malfunctioning. This has consistently been the number 1 failure.

This link shows an image of the coils. You will need to provide the model number off your dryer product ID tag.

Maytag performa dryer will not heat up


Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

Firstly, make sure that you have selected/ascertained a "Heat" setting, then read the checklist below provided by; www.repairclinic.com
They also provide disassembly diagrams and repair parts..

Dryer wont heat up


The most likely cause is a burnt out igniter. (part #
WE4X739) The igniter is a pencil shaped curly wire thing with a two pin disconnect located between the gas valve outlet and the burner box.
