SOURCE: Dryer wont heat

It's likely one of the coils is opening a break in the coil as the coil heats up. This coil will shrink when cool and be able to run again. The number for the coil kit, which will replace ALL the coils, for your machine is 279834.

Disconnect power and turn off gas before working on this dryer. Working on gas dryers is not recommended for people who are not professionals.

Disconnect Power. Lift Cover on lint filter. Remove two Phillips screws taking care NOT to allow them to fall into the blower housing. Place putty knife in the seam between the top and front panel about 2” in from either side. Push in on clip while pulling control panel forward and tilting putty knife handle up, all at the same time. Same on opposite side. Raise top all the way.

Looking down inside dryer on left and right see a 5/16” hex head screw about 6 inches down. Remove each side while holding front panel in place. Pull top of front panel about 3 inches forward from sides and then pull up. This will disengage the front panel from lower pressure clips and allow you to turn it sideways and expose the dryer interior. Take careful note of belt configuration BEFORE removing it. Draw a diagram of its travel.

Motor and idler pulley for dyer will be on right. Gas components will be on left. Replace All coils with Kit Number listed above. Take care not to touch or hit the ignitor or you will be replacing it also. It is VERY brittle.

Service on gas appliances should be undertaken by professionals only due to the danger of gas leakage which can cause fires or death by asphyxiation.

Reverse process to re-assemble.

I have a admiral dryer model # AGD4475TQ1 ...we turn the gas off now there's no heat how do we relight the pilot


There is no pilot lite on that model, it has an igniter that glows and ignites the burner. There is a small access hole on the bottom left side of the front panel. Remove the cover, start the unit and see if the igniter glows. Post back the results.

Model number 110 97573220 gas dryer won't heat up to dry clothes, just runs and runs.


The ignitor that lites the burner to heat the clothes is probably bad should be located near the bottom on one of the corners inside the machine probably the could get to it by rmoving the back.

Gas dryer not heating properly, burner ignites at start up, then not again


Please provide the brand and model number of your dryer.. However.. you state that your dryer is not heating properly and yet the burner ignites.. If you have a flame after ignition and your dryer is drying slowly, I would be inclined to look at the blower and or vent for restrictions in air flow. The heat generated by the burner will not be optimized in terms of drying clothes if you do not move that air out . Any and all restrictions to normal vent flow will make the dryer less efficient and dry times will be longer. If you are bound an determined to get into the flame sensor and thermostat logic, then please provide a brand and model number..
Hope this helps...

No heat


Is the ignitor glowing? There is a flame sesor on the burner assembly if it is open you will not get any power to the ignitor to lite the gas.

Apr 24, 2008 | Maytag Neptune MDG5500AW Gas Dryer

1 Answer

After a few heating cycles the burner does not ignite


The problem you are describing is usually associated with a bad gas valve coil. The dryer runs normally until it gets hot, then starts making a strange clicking noise. After it cools down, the dryer runs normally again. The gas valve coils (there are two of them) usually run about $20 a piece. I recommend replacing both of them at the same time just to be sure. I hope this helps.
