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.

Gas dryer pilot? or electric starter.


Hi,

If you can send me the model number that is on the front panel just inside the door I can tell you for sure what kind of ignition it has. If it is newer than 20 years old it is most likely a hot surface or glow bar ignition and does not require lighting.

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.

Dryer works but there is no heat in cycles, just plain air drying, do not know how to get hot air, it is an 10 year old kenmore gas dryer, has a dial for time of cycle, can not turn dial to get warm or hot...


I think you will need a repairman to fix this. The gas valve coils may be bad if the igniter radiates but then shuts off before the gas ignites. A repairman can also look at the radiant heat sensor nearby the igniter and replace it if it is bad. He should inspect fuses and circuit breakers and the heating element for continuity, using a device called an OHM Meter. I don't think this is a do it yourself repair job.

2 year old maytag gas dryer blowing warm air


Hi, Is there ant heat at all? Is it possible the dryer heats at first and stops later in the cycle? The first thing to check is the 4" vent going to the outside. Make sure it is cleared of lint and that it is not pinched off at all.
If the vent is ok, you might need to replace the coils on top the gas valve.
I can help you with this. I just want to narrow it down.

How do I light the ignite pilot light


Most new dryers don't actually have pilot lights. They use an electric heater that turns red hot, and ignites the gas at the right time. If your trying to light the pilot light (which probably doesn't exist) because the gas isnt being ignited,,, its possible that the electric igniter needs to be replaced.

Dryer doesn t get hot


it is going to be either the igniter for the gas or the heating element
you probably have an electric igniter. it is not igniting the gas to make the dryer heat i would definantly start with that
