Question about Maytag Neptune MDG5500AW Gas Dryer

1 Answer

Our Maytag Neptune gas dryer is exhausting a natural gas odor now... This smell only occurs when it has been running for awhile and never when it's turned off. Also, it ONLY smells outside the house via the exhaust. What is the issue???

Hi,

The burner is not lighting right...


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...

Gas smell from inside drum


This is caused 95% of the time by a bad igniter, it does not light it constantly and will give this odor.
The igniter light the gas to burn and heat, also make sure that the exhaust going to the outside is not kink or clogged at all this will also cause this problem.

Here is the igniter to order.

Converted to propane ,installed turned on seems to heat etc properly but smell gas


Hi,
Propane will often give you an odor even though you have done everything correctly...just spray all connection with soapy water to make sure you don't have any leaks...

Smelled mild gas odor after moving dryer. Replaced gas line connection. Still smell gas. Tried to tighten gas line have strong gas odor after running dryer. Does not seem to be heating


The gas valve should not be opening unless the glow igniter glows and sends a signal to the gas valve. I suspect a small leak in either the gas pipe or at the gas valve. You will have to get to the gas valve to perform a leak test. While the dryer is open, replace the igniter.

Natural gas dryer running too hot


I suspect you have a blocked air vent. A blocked vent will make you dryer run hot. Most vents get blocked by lint near their exit to the outside. There's usually a screen at this location to prevent small animals from crawling into your house. Often this screen gets clogged with lint. Most vents are designed to allow removal and cleaning of this screen from the outside.

Odor from Maytag dryer


Have you cleaned your vent lately? It might be excessively outgassing an ammonia smell because some plastic part that is getting too hot. If the vent is making it run hot or not exhausting it might stink up the room. Otherwise, it might just be stinky plastic. I don't know anything about your specific model, but I had a bread maker that was the source of a garlic & ****-like ammonia smell on the top cover after the plastic turned yellow from heat & age. Not a good feature for something that makes food and lives in the kitchen.

Not drying properly

These plastic blower wheel will get clogged with lint in front of them or they will strip out,get loose, and cause the dryer to be very inefficient. Get the front off and clean out the filter housing. Check the blower for looseness.
