Maytag Dryer MDE6400AYW. Dries clothing but does not shut off in Auto Mode. Tried Timer mode but the knob does not advance on its own and dryer does not shut off in that mode either. Replace Timer?


Some of them timer can be oiled, (just a little zoom oil no wd-40) if it is real hard to turn, the knob can become cracked and the timer motor itself it may not have enough ump to move the gears and sometimes oiling the timer and moving it around many times loosens em up.

Maytag gas dryer lsg 7800 just replaced gas valve dryer now heats but timer does not advance or shut off


Ok that machine was built back in 89, good chance the timer is out. If you really like that machine I would get as many replacement parts I could find for it. They are better machines than the ones they are selling on today's market.

Dryer doesnt work on settings


I have repaired (2) gas Maytag dryers that appeared to have timer issues. In both cases, it wasn't the timer, but the temperature sensors. In both cases, I replaced them and the dryers operated A-OK. The sensors signal the timer to advance. One sensor is located just beyond the flame where the gas is burning, the other just before the squirrel cage blower. In addition, there are (2) electrical coils located in front of the gas igniter assembly. If replacing the temperature sensors doesn't fix the issue, then replace the coils.

Comercial maytag dryer will not shut off. tried replacing timer. heats up but will not shut offf


Hello,

When a dryer heats but the timer does not advance especially on the auto. dry setting (not timed dry) the problem is usually always a airflow problem. What needs to be checked is for lint build up in the blower housing, a blocked or restricted. Also on Maytag dryers a problem sometimes is that the blower wheel drive hub where it connects to the motor is stripped so the blower wheel cant move air,typically if that is the case a rumbling will be heard when dryer starts and once again when the dryer stops a rumblimng noise will be heard.

I have a Maytag dryer MDG6200AWW and at first the machine dried the clothes fine but never shut off. The second load got hot but not long enough to dry whole load. The timer does not advance at all. ...


Remove the front panel to get to the gas valve. To remove the panel remove both screws holding the door hinges and the screws on the opposite side from the hinges across the door opening.
Remove the metal bracket holding gas valve coils.
Replace both gas valve coils, part number 279834.

Good luck,

Trouble with Maytag Legacy gas Dryer


Please provide the model number and I will see if I can figure something out.
It sounds like you have covered the common problems. Usually a motor is the cause for this problem, it gets hot and shuts down until it cools off. I have had some problems with the auto dry controls on the Maytags also.
Are you equiped to do some voltage checks if we need too? This would help in knowing where you have power when it quits.
Thanks/Mike
