Question about Maytag SDG4606A Gas Dryer

1 Answer

Burner cycles The dryer takes way too long to dry. I hear the burners relight, and after awhile, they go out. The lint Assy is clear, and the Vent Assy is clear out to the outside vent. Air pressure strong outside also.

    I replaced the thermostat, cycling thermostat, Flame sensor, and the high limit switch. The vent is clear and open. It still stops heating after awhile.

It sound as a thermostat issue. Try to make a short over the thermostat tags, run a drying cycle and see what happen. In case you will get a dry clothes, you should replace the thermostat. Good luck!

Taking too long to dry


your lint trap and lint vent are most likely clogged. Easiest way to fix it is to move your dryer away and disconnect the lint vent from the dryer and then take a yard blower to the back of your dryer with a towel around the blower in the hole to ensure the max air moves through the machine. (Ensure the door is only slightly cracked or your house will get very dusty) then clean the lint trap. Then do the same to the lint vent line (make sure the opening of your vent line on the exterior of home is clear of any debris or critter screen) reconnect your vent hose and it should work as new

Speed Queen dryer burner lights but does not dry clothes


This is a symptom of a severely clogged up vent or dryer passages.
Remove the vent duct hose from the back of the dryer and see if the problem persists. If it workes normally clean out the ducting and the through the wall flapper vent.
If the problem persists then remove the lint filter and inspect the air passages inside the dryer. Also check the exit hole where the vent duct connects for lint buildup. Use a crevice tool / vacuum to clear all dryer passages. If necessary use a folded coat metal hanger to assist in removing lint build up.

Wash the lint filter with whie wine vinegar and then soap and water to remove the dryer sheet particulate matter that builds up on the lint filter.

If the burner lights but goes out after 30 seconds then the flame sensor on the top of the burner assy ducting is bad.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Dryer taking too long to dry


If you can get the dryer outside, blow it out from the bottom with compressed air (using an air compressor or even a leaf blower). make sure the vent is clear and has no lint buildup. make sure the burner unit is also lint/dust free. If it is still heating, that is good news, and it is most likely a "breathing" issue. it also could be an issue with your gas pressure, however that is very unlikely. Best wishes in this project.

Dryer heats slowly


When dryer heats too slow, that means that there is a problem either with the heating element, the thermostat, or the vent.

See the following suggeations from Repairclinic:

Drying is too slow It normally takes about 45 minutes for a dryer to dry a full load. If your dryer is taking more than an hour, check these.

Vent
Heating element
Internal ductwork
Cycling thermostat
Vent Frequently there's an obstruction in the vent duct from the dryer to the outside of the house. For the dryer to heat properly, the duct must be clean and clear of lint or any other substance.

Heating element Your dryer's heating element may be partially burned out. If it is, your dryer still heats, but at such a low temperature that it takes three or four times as long to dry the clothes. If the element is partially burned out, replace it.

Internal ductwork Your dryer has some internal ductwork. If it gets clogged, your dryer can't dry properly. In most dryers, to get to the internal ductwork to clear the clog, you have to substantially disassemble the dryer. A quick way to check for internal clogs is to remove the lint filter and use a flashlight to inspect the inside of the duct. If it looks clogged and you can't clear it using your vacuum, contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

Cycling thermostat Although this isn't a common problem, one of the thermostats that controls the temperature in your dryer may break and cause the dryer to heat poorly. If so, you need to replace it. The thermostat is usually a small, round, black device mounted to an oblong steel plate. The plate is mounted to the internal ductwork with two screws.

Whirpool Dryer......


GAS or Elect. does not make a diffrence 95% of drying too long problems are from a clogged vent try to run a normal load with the vent off the the back letting the hot air into the house if it drys normal then you need to clean out the venting going to the outside If you are worried about the lint blowing inside you can put an old pantiehose over the vent to catch the lint dust
