This link, http://www.repairclinic.com/SmartSearch/SmartSearch.aspx, provides exploded view imagery, belt routing diagrams, parts imagery and function, parts ordering and shipping information, error code details, just about anything you need to get your appliance up and running again. Just follow the links to navigate through the site.

You will need to enter the model number stamped on the manufacturers product information data tag, located on the unit, and not in the User’s Manual. to access your product information.


Clicking on the underlined links will take you directly to that page.

The most common failure mode is the gas valve solenoids and from your description, I would recommend replacing them. The link below will take you to the page that shows the coils and their price. Still very well worth it since you obvoiously take care of your appliances, due the age of the dryer.

Igniter comes on will not let the gas in. The gas burner does not come on Maytag model dg882s


Hello,
Your have one of two problem causing the gas to not come on on your dryer.
1) the flame sensor is bad...if the igniter comes on and stays on and doesn't go off...usually within 1 minute the flame sensor isn't working as its supposed to
2) the coils on the gas valve could be the problem...if the igniter does indeed go off within 1 minutes and as soon as the igniter goes off if their is no flame the coils on the gas valve is what would need to be replaced
here is what each part looks like

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.

Gas burner only stays on for 5 seconds off 1 to 2 min.taks two hours dry clothes


No air flow. Blocked venting , Blower wheel broken or cloged. Check to see if the air is blowing out side at your vent. If your ingitor comes back on but no flame your gas coils are no good.

Clothes not drying properly


Consider a blocked air flow/vent problem or bad gas valve selonoids. Important to check outside vent door if present to make sure it is opening all the way. If not the dryer goes off on thermal overload. If vent is clear consider selonoids located on top of gas valve held in place with 2 philip head screws. One has a two prong electrical plug and the other has a three. Last check Lp tank for gas. Thank you

I HAVE A MAYTAG ATLANTIS GAS DRYER STOPS HEATING ABOUT 5 MINUTES IN


the flame going out is normal. the heat cycles on and off as called for by the thermostat. If the heat doesn't come back on i would start by changing the gas coils.
