Hi,
When the dryer wont heat it is the thermal fuse that is bad, you can test it with a voltmeter before replacing. This fuse is located inside the rear panel and it cannot be reset.

Hope this will help...

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..

Hi, my Maytag Neptune gas dryer will not heat up anymore. When the machine start to run, you can hear the gas is burning & the heat is blowing from hot to warm to cold in about 60 to 90 seconds that is...


The thermal fuse is NEVER at fault, it is only a symptom of some other problem and is a serious safety warning. Check that the exhaust vent is clean and not kinked or otherwise obstructed. When WAS the last time you cleaned the vent??

Gas dryer


blower motor relay is bad or the dials are bad
heres a way to check the dials
turn off the gas and run the dials if at anytime the dials stick during its cycle then you know this is the fault this usually the commen issues of all dryers the dials just wear out and so parts just dont work

also check the door switch this could be an issue why it gets cold clean out all vents and filters after "every use"

Dryer heat stops after 2 mins then never relights It's a gas model Neptune


Check first your venting.If you want to be 100% accurate,try this,dry your next load with the vent off the back of dryer,making sure your at least 3 feet from the wall.If it heats any amount longer than you have mentioned ,well then,you have a clogged or bad vent .
