I have a Maytag drayer DG303 would not heat. Replaced gas valve and hilimit thermostat. How long should the flame stay on to heat dryer? Thanks
The flames will stay on until the cycling thermostat reads that the temperature has been met and opens up. With no clothes in the dryer and properly vented this would be about 1 to 2 minutes after it fires. With a load of wet clothes it could be 20 minutes or more. If the flame is going out rapidly check the venting of the dryer to make sure that there is no clogging.

The flame will stay lit on the dryer until the cycling thermostat is satisfied and then the flame will shut off. Once the cycling thermostat cools the unit will cycle again. If the flame is shutting of quickly then you will want to make sure that your venting is clear from the blower wheel to the outside of home as this can cause longer drying times.
