Question about Maytag LSG7806A Front Load Stacked Washer / Dryer

Maytag LSG7806A stackable washer/dryer - dryer not working

The machine is just 2 years old. The dryer is not getting warm or hot. The igniter lights, but then the gas doesn't connect to it to make the dryer warm. The gas is turned on. Checked the electric current with a meter, electric connections working and fuseable links are all ok. Could it be the gas valve?

Deb, as long as the ignitor is glowing, it's probably your coils on the valve. Look at number 13 and 14 on the attachment. Part number for the booster coil is 306106 and 306105 for the secondary coil. Not a hard job, the coils slide right off after removing a screw and then replace the harness. Catriver...post back.

Buy the right size fuse. Too big of a fuse can cause a fire.

I think I have to replace the blower wheel in my dryer. Is it harder to get access to this part in this type of dryer (stackable vs. unstacked)? Is this something I should even try to do?

Why do you think you need to replace the blower wheel assembly? If it is not drying completely make sure the ducting is clean and free from obstructions. If the dryer is not getting hot you may need to check the three thermostats or the gas valve and igniter. You can order parts from Appliancepartspros.com, which are in stock. If one of the thermostats are defective the dryer will not heat up. You need to use an ohm meter and a heat gun to test the thermostats. If the thermostats are good see if the igniter has voltage to it and is sparking. If it does you need to make sure the gas valve is functioning.

The advantage of the stackable unit is the compact size and lower total cost. The disadvantage is the small tub and drum limiting the size of loads you can run. I also think the larger units do a better job of cleaning if you have the space and funds.

Can you repair it yourself? If you have the knowledge of how to use a Volt/Ohm Meter and some mechanical skills, I think you can repair it yourself. Keep in mind you need to fix the cause of the problem before you fix the problem, or you will have the same failure again (make sure you have good air flow in your ducting). Most appliance parts stores will not take back electronic parts once you have opened or installed them. Therefore, you need to identify the part is defective before replacing it. Some appliance parts stores will test the part for you.

The gas dryer does not get warm?

to have it get warm there are 3 things have to be working together:
1- Ignition needs to be on to start the burning.
2- Gas valve needs to be opened after ignition is on.
3- Gas continues jetting in until a thermal switch turns the valve off.
You can open the rear panel to observe if the ignition is glowing or not. If it is not then that the culprit. If it is on then glows off after a while since the gas valve is not open, then you can just replace the thermo sensor if it is separate from the gas controller. Some controller has it integrated then you have to replace that. Good luck.
