    Checked vent, not clogged. No spark to light the flame. Heard no sound from gas valve area. Got a little shock from the element in the tube. Still not lighting.

    Just had the dryer delivered today and it will not run HOT. Checked vent line and it is blowing outside hard. The Gas line is on. Any ideas?

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.



check out this electric no heat tip...

Our dryer takes a long time to dry clothes. If the airvent that goes outside of the ouse is clogged...would that affect the dryer? Stupid question i know, but we have like 5 feet of snow outside, so it's...


Yes this would affect try time as your dryer is not able to move the moist air out of the dryer. That is probably your problem. The other issue would be gas coils if it heats at the beginning of the cycle and stops heating towards the end.

Hope this helps _MJ_

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 gas dryer doesn't dry properly


SOUNDS LIKE A RESTRICTION IN THE VENT. CHECK AIR FLOW WHERE VENT EXITS HOUSE. IF IT IS NOT STRONG, INSPECT VENT LINE BEHIND DRYER. IS IT CRUSHED OR CLOGGED WITH LINT? THIS WILL CAUSE DRYER TO SHORT CYCLE. IF VENT IS NOT CLOGGED, CHECK AIR FLOW AT BACK OF DRYER WITH VENT DISCONNECTED. IS AIR FLOW STRONG? OF NOT, PROBLEM IS WITH BLOWER.

I HAVE A MAYTAG ATLANTIS GAS DRYER STOPS HEATING ABOUT 5 MINUTES IN


the flame going out is normal. the heat cycles on and off as called for by the thermostat. If the heat doesn't come back on i would start by changing the gas coils.
