Hi, I have a maytag gas dryer it only works for about five minutes and then the flame stop working. I checked the voltage to the gas regulator solenoides and I have voltage, but the resistence for onen of them (the 2 contact one )whent up to open loop, and after 10 to 20 minutes it start to work again, this thing drives me crazy because I changed the high limit thermostat two times, and both solenoides and I relocate the vent pipe and still have the same result, any ideas? PLease help me. Thanks William.

    i have a mdg5500aww, it is gas, and 6 years old, it has started to heat up the first time, and not again, unless it is off for some time. A&E, should be B&E, came out and said circuit board, $365. part only. Found one on the internet, with shipping $90.00, and it worked for about a week, then same symptoms, lights the first time, then not again. Watching it, the glow plug works the first time, but never trys a second. Any help?

Look for a flame detector device that is turning off the oven due to its malfunction. it should be near the flame and it may have wires or tubing.

My dryer does not have heat.

If the heating element has a flame starter, turn off the gas for five minutes and re-light the flame. If it's a piazo starter, you need a new one.

Hi i have a whirpool gas dryer that all works fine but after about five minutes the heat will stop and it will just blow cool air. I can stop it and restart and everything starts and works fine and after...

The gas valve coils are closing the valve or the flame sensor is defective. The coils are the most common problem.
There are 2 on top of the gas valve. Turn off the gas and power. Remove the front panel by opening the top lid and then remove the screws from inside the front panel in the top right and left corners.

Either the venting needs cleaned or the coils on the gas valve are bad. Unhook the venting from the back of the unit and run. If works ok then clean venting. If you still have the problem, replace the two coils on top of the gas valve.

Maytag dryer does not maintain heat and clothes smell

Check coils on burner assembly. Often when a dryer heats initially and then stops heating a coils has gone bad.
