Question about Maytag MDG7757AW Gas Dryer

1 Answer

Dryer will sometimes start to heat, then stops heating altogether.

We have a Serviceguard plan and they have been out 3 times to try and fix the problem without success. They have replaced the ignitor, sensor and sensor pad. They said there is nothing else to replace, but it still doesn`t heat up.

There are always more parts to replace. From the sounds of it though, it sounds like one of your gas coils are going out. Normal gas dryer opperation is your unit will heat up, cool down, heat up, cool down, etc thorugh the course of the cycle. Usually when one of your coils are going out, it sticks after the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd cycle and the gas will no longer come out. So the cycle will continue just without heat. Another less likely possibility is that you have a restriction in your ventalation causing one of your heat safeties to open and not let the machine heat for most of the cycle. This can generally be checked just by placing your hand under the vent hood outside where your dryer vents to. You should feel air pressure on your hand while the unit is running. If there is not pressure or you are hearinf some whisling noise, it might be restricted in which case you'll need to have your vents cleaned/ repaired. Now since you are going through an extended warranty company, here's a couple other thoughts. They contract companies to provide service to thier customers. Do they have another authorized company in your area that can look at it? Do they have any kind of lemon or excessive repair policy? Many companies will replace a unit after so many repairs in a given time frame.

follow this steps and fix it. Merry Christmas
. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses. An electric dryer uses two circuit breakers or fuses, and if only one of two is tripped or blown, the dryer might still run but not heat. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

2. Heating element
A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

Timer
The timer could be the problem. To check this, turn the timer to a timed cycle say 30 minutes or so then time it. If in 30 minutes the timer hasn't moved and the dryer is still on, the timer is faulty replace it If in 30 minutes the dryer is off, the heating element is your problem

Heating Element
This is the most likely cause for some dryers timer not advancing. Some dryers have two heating elements and if one goes out the timer will not advance if you use it on an automatic cycle but you will still feel heat inside the tub. Replace it

Why does my gas dryer heat keep shutting off?


The solenoid coils on the dryer are acting up. This is a common problem. They work a little then heat up and short out. Easy fix I did some videos:

The gas dryer heats then does not heat. The sensor says 99 minutes to dry close. Tried it on timed heat and it dries then stops drying. Sometimes shutting off completely!


Hello,Cheack to make sure your venting is clean and clear..If its blocked the safty thermostat will shut the heat down to prevent overheating.. If the vent is clean i would check the coils.When they start to fail it will heat then not cycle back on..

My dryer heats up,, glow works, igniter works,, then cycles approx 3-4 times then stops cycling



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.



check out this electric no heat tip...
