Help Please! Maytag Dryer not heating


Are these dryers that difficult?? The dryer starts to heat then 1 min. later the gas flame kicks off. I was told it is a voltage problem? The outlet is good, the plug is good, the timer has 120v going to it. The gas valve coils ohm out at (3 prong- between 1-2 @ 1,369 1-3 @ 560) (2 prong between 1-2 @ 1,298) not sure if these are good or not? I was instructed to change these coils out. Help Please!

Help Please! Maytag Dryer not heating


I had the same issue on a dryer recently. Dryer would start, I would leave thinking it was working and then get calls from my Tenant's asking why the dryer was not heating up. I did not fix it personally (had my guy take care of it) but if I recall he said that it was the solenoid that was bad. I have personally taken the dryer apart and they are really not that hard to work on. For sure it is not a voltage problem though.

Check this out. Might help

an easy way to tell if it's coils is; the igniter will cycle on and off w/o flame.
