Customer Question

I have a Maytag gas dryer M/N MDG2600BWW. The dryer initially starts and operates normally. The heat then cycles off and does not reignite throughout the drying cycle. The igniter has been replaced and the dryer vent is clean and unobstructed. Sensors are clean but have not been replaced. What should my next step be? Thanks

First, make sure your vent is cleaned and the best way to do that is just run a cycle without the vent hose connected to the back of the dryer to see if things change. If your dryer still won't dry properly, then this is a pretty common issue unfortunately and it means that your gas coils are starting to fatigue and need to be ordered and replaced. As the coils heat up, the unit stops opening the valve or can't hold it open as long as intended because it gets weak. You just need to order and replace the 2 black cylinder gas coils located directly in front of the igniter. Below is a link to the part you'll need to order and replace
