For Whirlpool Dryer Gas Valve Coil Kit (Part Number: AP3094251)

Answer or Comment

I have a Maytag Neptune Gas Dryer Model # MDG6700AWW that is not heating properly. Upon starting the dryer the ignitor will glow, gas valve opens, and flame is blue. After approximately 5-8 seconds the ignitor and gas will shut off. As the dryer continues to run in approximately 1-2 minutes later the ignitor will glow, gas valve opens, and flame is blue. Again, after approximately 5-8 seconds the ignitor and gas shut off. This cycle continues over and over. I have checked the OHMS on the valve coils and are in line with specs. Please offer some suggestions... Thank you.

Steve for Model Number MDG6700AWW

ANSWER Steve, This issue sounds as though the ignitor may be at fault. It may check good upon lighting but once it heats up there may be a hairline crack that causes circuit to open. It is also possible that the coils are faulty, which is the most common reason for them to open and then close 5 to 8 seconds later when they start getting hot.
