The ignitor starts, flame comes on, stays on for a min then goes out. ignitor starts again a minute later, the flame comes, high smell of gas. Clothes are not dried in an hour, but may be dried in 2 or 3. We did replace Dryer Igniters and Gas Valve Coils 3 years ago.

Chris for Model Number pyg2000aww maytag gas dryer

ANSWER Hello Chris. It sounds like the venting system is clogged or kinked. You will need to check the vent and clean it out. Be sure and clean the vent pipe and the dryer air duct assembly. If the air flow is not good, the unit will retain moist air causing the clothes not to dry. Try running the unit with the vent unhooked from the back of the dryer and see if the dryer works properly.
