Maytag gas dryer does not always heat
« on: May 23, 2012, 08:25:14 AM »
Maytag Gas Dryer Model Number LDG9306AAE

After I start the dryer I hear a click sound and see the coil inside starts to glow. Maybe 10 seconds later I hear a click again and then the glowing shuts off. It never heats up to dry the clothes.

That means your ignitor and flame sensor is working AND your fuse is fine. The only other items in the assembly are the solenoids. As TG suggested replace them and all should be well!

About the icons: The beer is tip link, if a tech saves ya some money buy em a 6 pack. The small green square=personal message. The green dot is a link to my web page on appliance repair and other general BS I love to post. The letter sends me email.
I love fan letters! LOL
