Question about Dryers

1 Answer

I have a maytag gas dryer (Model DG303) that takes forever to dry clothes. The flame ignites but I don't know how long it stays on. The exhaust tube usually does not get very hot. Most loads take well over an hour to dry. (Then again, rarely, but sometimes it dries a load quite rapidly) Any idea what parts to trouble shoot and replace?

I suspect you have intermittent gas valve coils. These are very common to fail, usually fail intermittently, are inexpensive and easy to replace. You will need to remove the front panel to access them and they are on the LH side once the front is removed. Replace both coils.

I have replaced radiant flame sensor, high limit thermostar, cycling thermostat, coil kit, and blower wheel on maytag dryer ldg9206aae, and still it takes forever to dry and is not hot enough.


if the flame is lighting like it should and you changed out all those parts did you clean out the lint filter duct and clean out the vent line?try removing the vent line from the back of the dryer and run it,if the flame stays on longer and it heats you have a blocked vent line,if the air can't move and that's all a dryer does the clothes can't dry

My maytag gas dryer work on dry cloth and stays hot but as soon as i put wet cloths in it they wont dry ?


My dryers timer wouldn't work correctly and the clothes were taking forever to dry. I decided to check the vent. My advice....Always check your dryer vent before spending any money on unnecessary parts or service calls. This Nest was pulled out of my vent with my shop vac sucking out and my house vac blowing out from inside. It finally broke free and now my dryer works like new.

The problem is the dryer coils are failing. They tend to fail as they heat up.There is a video at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html this will walk you thru the troubleshooting of these components. It may be a different model but the troubleshooting will be the same.You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations. All parts come with installation instructions. Not all models are available. If you need help disassembling your machine there are videos of this also for most styles.

Maytag dryer runs and tumbles but will not heat up to dry clothes. model # LDG7500AAW, serial # A3351803. it does have flame but will not stay hot. Is this a thermostat problem?


I would suspect a faulty high limit thermostat is causing this problem. It is usually a small round, black device mounted on a small plate and attached to the internal ductwork with two screws. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Maytag gas dryer taking too long to dry clothes


Not too familliar with the gas temp either, but you should definitely take your lint filter out and clean it with soap and water. If you use dryer sheets, they can leave a clear film on your filter and it can be just as bad as a filter full of lint. Try this out, if it works, clean your filter periodically with soap and water to remove the chemical buildup.

Maytag dryer not heating


Many gas appliances have safety devices that all need to be functional or you will not be sucessfull in passing fuel to the burner assembly.
There are 2 or 3 electrically controled coils on the gas valve (electromagnetic), these lift a pin in the control and gas flows as requested, these can fail and are realatively inexpensive and easy to replace, $4-25 depending on how many and where purchased.
Other sensors are 2-limit thermostats, radiant sensor, heat sensors, motor temp sensor, humidity sensor, switches (door etc.) all must function in the system to allow correct performance, lastly control panel, also most problems involve cleanlyness of the entire system and all associted exhaust piping.
There are no appliances that are free from maintanance so all require inspections and regular cleanings.
