Maytag Gas Dryer 17 Years Old

(1/3) > >>

Mike P:
Dryer runs and heats up for 1-2 minutes then flame and heat goes off, but dryer continues to run. Vent pipe is metal and clean. Any suggestions.
Thank you.

Model DG212

rickgburton:
After the flame turns off, does the igniter come back on and glow red? If it does, you may have to replace the split coils.

Mike P:
The flame goes out, the dryer continues to run and 1-2 minutes later it starts to light again, but goes out instantly.

When you say "it starts to light again", do you actualy get a flame or just the igniter glows?

Mike P:
I actually get a flame, but for only about 30 seconds. Ignitor coils have been replaced and same thing keeps occuring.
