Remove the dryer vent hose from the vent.

Test the dryer again with the vent hose off.

If the dryer then works properly it tells you you have a build up of lint in the dryer vent.

Cleaning out the dryer vent will then solve the problem

MAYTAG GAS DRYER MD5500 DOES NOT HEAT


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...

I have a MDG6700 with the same issue..all my research on this problem points to the 2 coils on the gas valve. Tomorrow i am going to change them (kit is about 30 bucks to get local)..coils test good but other postings about this dryer say one coil gets hot and is weak and close the gas valve thus stopping the heating process..
