This not a solution, just a statement that the only way in seems to be via the front with removing everything! There is a link in here to a Service manual that shows (poorly) different stages of a tear down. I think my washer not spinning out the clothes properyly has cause what every it is to break. Lots of good info on how to test the ignitor, but how to get it out is another matter. Did you have to call a tech?

Maytag neptune drying center has no power mcg8000aww

Could be a bad thermal fuse, a bad drum belt, a door switch a loose wire , one of the computer boards or the user interphase. Time to call a qualified technician. This machine is a complex machine to disassemble and diagnose and if reassembled wrong could prove to be dangerous to operate.

I have the Maytag MCG8000AWW gas "drying center", it tumbles but does not have any heat. The burner lights when the cycle is started, and for a few minutes it does heat. Then the humidity indicator changes...

If you have a gas dryer2_bing.gif.
The most common problem with a gas and no heat is the ignitor going bad...

Here is a tip that I wrote about that problem...

Maytag MCG8000AWW gas dryer no heat

The ignitor may be bad you can chek to see if there is 110volts when the dryer is allin by unplugging the wire to the ignitor and putting using a multimeter to chek for voltage at the wires. If there is power to the ignitor and the ignitor is not glowing up then the ignitor is probably bad replace the ignitor.

Maytag legacy squells like crazy, trouble gaining entry to check idler arm.

The noise you are hearing could be coming from the drum rollers needing lubricant.
If it is a front loading maching pull off the front of the machine, you can access the drum rollers to lube them or replace them and also get to the idle arm
