    Sorry - thought the model data carried forward from the search. The dryer in question is a Maytag MOD MGD5570TQ0 Natural Gas dryer. Type: DWSR-NAT-1206006-FM22.

    First time using this service -- what's next?

  • tvdprime May 23, 2011

    Thanks. So to search for the part, I look for a burner coil for a Maytag model bla bla bla?

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

I'll start by saying your post indicates it is obviously a gas dryer, however if you could post the complete make/brand name AND model number ( if you could verify the number you did provide along with the make ) I can speak directly about possible remedies instead of generalizing.


It wouldn't be the thermal fuse though, that would cut the power off completely.

It could simply be the burner coils or the ignitor itself...even though it glows doesn't mean it's O.K...but I'll need to clarify the model number before detailing much of course. Thank you for choosing FixYa. I'll need to watch for your reply before moving forward.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

    Hello again,

    Thank you for the reply and providing the make and model, that certainly helps identify what the issue can or cannot be.

    You mentioned you do get heat intermittently, and the drum does turn correct ?

    If this is a symptom where the unit at first begins to heat but the flame drops out in a matter of seconds or minutes I would be looking at the burner coils. This is what you'll be looking for...


    Once you've gain access to the coils you'll need to remove the wire harness and check the continuity.

    Here's the tricky part though...many times they will ohm out ok when cool (not operating) yet as soon as there is current passing through the coil it "opens". The wire inside the coils is so fine that often it only takes a small current to "open" the circuit.

    Most times it will only be one coil that fails but it is good practice to replace them both, many places used to sell them in a kit so double check with your supplier. I've attached a link here, though it is different than your model the principles to changing the coils are the same.

    Let me know how you make out or if you require further assistance and I'll do whatever I can. Thank you for your patience while I was away for a while. Good luck.

    Regards,

    Macmarkus :)

    Hi,



    As far as what part you may need and how to get it. There are a couple of places I prefer, on-line at "searspartsdirect.com" or "repairclinic.com".



    Kit contains both the two wire and three wire solenoids. One solenoid is the primary and one is the safety. Both have to operate for the gas valve to open. Usually, one of them burns out as I said but you should always replace them as a set.



    **unplug the appliance and turn off the gas supply before attempting any service...safety first**



    It is part number 3479 at "repairclinic" as this link should provide you.



    http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/G...



    Hope that provides you with enough info to proceed, if not let me know and I will provide assistance in any manner I can of course. Good luck once again.



    Regards,



    Macmarkus :)

Whirlpool dryer dwsr nat 1206006 fm22 will not turn on when on button is pressed. There is a black plastic piece to the right of the metal catch on the dryer that if pressed the right way, the dryer will...


The peice your refering to is called a door switch, and its a pretty easy repair. You'll need your model number handy, and then contact a local parts distributor in your area. Once that is done, if your dryer is a standard whirlpool, you'll just take the two screws out of the top by the lint trap and pop the top up. Once thats done look down to the right and you'll aee the switch which is held in by two screws on the outside portion of the door.

My Whirlpool mod# lgb6300pwo ser # mso902052 type dwsr-nat-120606 fm22 runs without any heat. Therefore, no drying. Checked the exaust ,the gas is on . What is the next point to check?


Hi, If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes it is still not working properly. if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip.... If you have an electric dryer, you can have many differentthings that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat. check out this electric no heat tip...
