Sometimes it will heat for a few minutes and then it won't heat up at all. Seems to be an intermittent problem


Remove the connecting exhaust vent for a test only.
Run a dryer cycle with the vent removed.
If it works,repair your vent blockage.
If the same occurs,check the blower wheel on the end of the motor to make sure it is not spinning loosely on the shaft.
Next observe the glowbar ignitor.
Is it coming on and cycling after every extenguish?
If it comes on and does not light,replace the gas valve coils.

HOW CAN A DRYER IGNITE A FLAME AT FIRST FOR TEN MINS THEN WHEN THE DRYER WANTS TO HEAT UP AGAIN I SEE A GLOW BUT NO FLAME COMES THE SECOND TIME SHOULD I REPLACE THE THERMAL FUSE


No you should replace the coils. 3a3915a.jpgWhy? You know you are getting power to the gas assembly so that means the fuse and control are functioning. The igniter glows so that is good. The Flame detect is fine because it shuts down the glowbar when it heats up. So those pesky coils get hot and quit. They eventually cool back down and work a little more, very aggervating to diagnose but easy to fix.2b3709e.jpgNote you do not have to remove the gas assembly to replace these coils.

The dryer puts off a chemical smell on the clothes-gas dryer


If it smells like gas on your clothes, your exhaust vent is probably being restricted, causing the exhaust to back up into the dryer cavity. Remove exhaust hose, make sure it is clear all the way to where it exits your home.( sometimes birds build nests in the outlet vent) Look into vent where hose attatches to dryer, and make sure it is clear also. If you smell gas when moving the dryer, there should be a shutoff valve near the wall, close it. DO NOT THE DRYER ! ! Call someone qualified to make the repair.

Gas dryer wont heat up, blows only cold air.what would cause this


Could be a bad hi limit thermostat. Could be a bad glowbar ignitor. Check the glowbar ignitor at the gas valve, is it glowing bright orange/red? If not. Replace the ignitor.

Gas smell, oven not heating up


You gas oven uses a glowbar to both regulate and ignite the gas entering the oven. If this glowbar is faulty, it might let some gas into the oven but it is not hot enough to ignite the gas. That is why you are smelling gas. I would suggest to start by replacing the glowbar (and if this is not the solution, simply return the part for a refund). The part you are looking for can be found online here: http://www.partselect.com/PartDetail.aspx?Inventory=470129&SourceCode=1

It is quite easy to replace. Simply remove the free-standing pan on the bottom of the oven, unscrew the existing glowbar, remove the back cover from the stove and trace the two wires that belong to the glowbar and unplug them. Thread the two wires from the new glowbar through the opening and reconnect to the plugs at the back of the stove. Screw in the new glowbar and test. Most oven ignition problems are caused by faulty glowbard. Good luck.

How to replace heating element Maytag Performa gas dryer pyg2300aww?


Your model number indicates a gas dryer. It does not have a heating element. It has a glowbar igniter,a flame sensor and a gas valve. Either the glowbar igniter is bad or the flame sensor or the gas valve coils or the thermal fuse.
