I purchased a Maytag Gas Dryer MGDX700XW1 on 12 Jan 2012. I also purchased a Type 4 (LPG) conversion kit which came with Type M and Type K Orifice Spuds and Regulator Block Open Plugs. I believe I have a Type M gas valve since the Conversion Instructions state that for Type K valves, coils are aligned with the inlet and for Type M valves the coils are aligned with the outlet. For the referenced dryer, please verify that it is Type M (or K if I am mistaken.) 2. There appears to be a difference in the burner assemblies for MGDX700XW0 and MGDX700XW1. For the 0 model, the parts diagram shows: 15. 694424 Leak, Limiter, 16. 694423 Screw, Regulator Adjustment, 17. 694422 Spring, Regulator. For the MCDX700XW1 model Maytag has replaced these parts with what appears to be a removable cap. The conversion instructions Step 7 states "Remove the leak limiter (Vent Cap) from the top of the Pressure Regulator. Step 8: Install regulator block open plug on top of pressure regulator and tighten moderately. Are these steps correct for the Dryer that I have? Do I need to remove the cap and whatever else is in the hole that the cap sits upon and install the Regulator Block Open Plug, or do I skip these two steps? Any elaboration and detail would be most appreciated. Thank you, Walter Bond

ANSWER Hi Walter. Yes, you did purchase the correct LP Gas Conversion part # W10606694A for your model. Follow the instructions to a tee after removing the power and shut the gas supply off. You need to use the #55 orifice at the burner orifice end itself. Then remove only the blocking plug from the "nat" regulator and replace it w/ the one sent. You are correct that it is different from the 2-similar models. I looked the question up in WPl/Maytag service matters and find none. Thank You.
