Question about Maytag Atlantis MDE7400AY Electric Dryer
I have an older Maytag Atlantis Dryer that does not heat up. I see that the igniter lights up but the burner does not ignite. I cleaned the exhaust sensor - unpluged the electrical connectors on the sensors and burner, they seemed clean and repluged. Anyone have a suggestion...so that I do not have to replace parts that do not need replacing.
Exhaust is clean; good gas hook-up.
Best guess is that one of the two solenoid coils on the gas valve is faulty, one has two connections and the other has three. Always replace BOTH solenoids even if only one has failed.

The problem you are describing is usually associated with a bad gas valve coil. The dryer runs normally until it gets hot, then starts making a strange clicking noise. After it cools down, the dryer runs normally again. The gas valve coils (there are two of them) usually run about $20 a piece. I recommend replacing both of them at the same time just to be sure. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: Gas dryer doesn't heat up
,when you start your gas dryer you should here two clicks, if so then your ignitor should begin to glow if two clicks and no glow [its your ignitor] but you can use a volt meter and make sure 110 volts at ignitor if voltage replace ignitor with new.if not two clicks then its going to be your thermal fuse its in the same area as the burner Therese two kinds[only one in each dryer tho],both white having two wires and small, one looks like a missile the other a fling saucer.ither kind you can put the two wires going to it to gether ,isolate them with tape and try heating.if heats replace.now if fuse you need to check for any blockage,inyou house or dryer.over heating can cause the fuse to open if i can be of more help you can email thru fixya God bless ,tom

Try running it with the vent disconnected and feel the air coming out of the dryer. It should have good flow. If it dries good, your pipe may be clogged.
