Maytag Bravos Gas Dryer-No Heat # MGD6400TQ0
« on: January 30, 2012, 09:15:42 PM »
Going to be looking at this tomorrow for a friend of the family. Gas dryer no heat. I'm going to check the thermal cut-off and coils. Can someone send me a link to the manual? I have no experience with these yet but I know its a typical gas dryer of which I have plenty. Gonna wing it! Lol! Are these like the typical Neptunes where you have to remove the door and gain access from the front? Thanks!

Model MGD6400TQ0

Just like a whirlpool dryer. Remove lint screen screws from the top.
Release the two front clips with a putty knife to pop the top.
Then remove the two inside screws that hold the front on so you can lift the front off the bottom clips.

I found the service manual on here last night after a little digging. It IS just like a Whirlpool. Just a fancy control panel and door. I also saw how much a board for this sucker cost. GEEZE!

I used the service manual search.


http://appliancejunk.com/forums/index.php?action=downloads;sa=search


and search for MGD6400 to come up with the service manual.


8178644 ML-7 Maytag Bravos Dryer Service Repair Manual

Sometimes it's helpful to to search using just the first few digits of the model number to find the service manual.
It don't always work that way, but in this case it did.

Please let us know what you find wrong with it. O0

White thermal fuse was bad. Was not severely clogged with lint but I took it completely apart, cleaned lint, oiled rollers and motor. Also replaced the coils as preventive maintenance. O0
