Sounds like the Thermal cut out is activating - look for a clogged lint filter or if you have it ducted exhaust the duct may be blocked.

The thermal cutoff may also be faulty requiring a service man to replace it

Replace your gas valve coils!! They will allow the dryer to heat initially, but fail after about the 3rd or 4th iginition sequence.
Part number 279834 and are around $20.
They are located on top of the valve and held on by a steel bracket with two phillips head screws. Plug and play wires you cant mess up.
Fix it up!!

My kenmore electric clothes dryer model #110.86984110 shuts down in the middle of a cycle. After a while I can restart it and will run for a little while longer.

when was the last time you cleaned out the dryer,could have a blocked vent line,blocked blower wheel duct where the filter slides into and vac out the inside of dryer,go outside and make sure the air is blowing the flapper fully open,might have to blow the line out with a leaf blower,if the heat can't escape the dryer over heats and shuts down, could have a bad timer,thermostat, or you also could have a bad motor that would also heat up and shut down if it's bad, but try the clean out first and go from there,good luck

Heat will not stay on

Hi, very common problem.

The problem is with the gas coils.
When they get weak, they only come on for about 10 minutes and then the machine will blow cold air. There are 2 of them with one being the booster coil. They come in a pair and run less than $20.

Best of luck. Please e-mail me if you have any other questions.

Gas dryer heats for a little bit then just blows cold air, wait an hour or so then heats for a bit again.

Hello, your problem is with the 2 little black gas coils. Those need to be replaced.

Parts are around $20.
If you hire someone to do it, labor should be no more than $79.

Good luck :)

Gas dryer gets hot for a few minutes then goes cold.

Sounds like you need to replace the coils on the gas valve. Just make sure your venting is clear 1st. If it is, the coils are easy to replace. Remove the front panel and the coils are on the bottom right hand side. Two screws and the bracket for both comes off. One has two terminals and the other has three. Real easy once you get into the dryer.

Maytag dryer does not maintain heat and clothes smell

Check coils on burner assembly. Often when a dryer heats initially and then stops heating a coils has gone bad.
