All you need to do is check the element for continuity with an ohm meter, if it has continuity the element is good. The dryer also will run on 110 volts of power but it needs 220 volts too run the element, so check and make sure all the conections on your cord are secure and that you have 220 at your wall outlet.

SOURCE: dryer does not heat up.

Hello there:
normally on these units if the dryer was working ok and then suyddenly stopped heating your heating element or the ignitor (excitor ) has failed and is need of replacement
so i would start by having these things checked first by contacting a local repair man to do a evaluation on the unit and if kyou still have a valid warranty i would use it ok
I hope that this is very helpful for you
Best regards Richard

SOURCE: my dryer runs but no

Hi there,

Well if your dryer tumbles, but there is no heat then you may please check out the following -
1. First of all you can check out for proper air flow - Check the vent for proper air flow by placing your hand over the exterior vent while the dryer is running. You should feel a strong flow of air. If not then check the lint trap. It is located either on top of the dryer or possibly just inside the door. Remove any lint that has built up in the lint trap. Cleaning the lint trap should be done regularly, even as often as after every load. Do not operate the dryer without a lint trap in place.
2. Secondly you can check out the Ignitor - gas dryer blows air through a burner assembly to heat the air. The burner assembly consists essentially of a gas valve, ignitor and a flame sensor. If any part of the burner assembly malfunctions, the result will be low or no heat and slow drying of the clothes. Post comments for further help or information.....
Good Luck!!
Thanks for using FixYa!!

Problem with the Maytag Neptune MDG6700A Gas Dryer WHEN STARTED HEATS UP THEN NO HEAT AT ALL. MAYTAG MDG6700AWW


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

When the dryer heats for few minutes and then it won't work it means that the thermostat is bad and needs replacement. This part is located on the blower wheel housing inside the duct, you can also check this part for continuity before replacing. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Neptune mdg3000aww starts heating and runs fine but stops heating shortly after start up can restart heater starts again and shuts down


If the machine keeps running but just not heating you have a thermostat issue. It could be the operating therm. or the high temp limit therm malfunctioning, shutting off the element.

If the machine stops running completely, check the door switch.

Check the lint tubing and also for lint underneath the dryer. There is a blockage somewhere for this to happen. This is a built in safety feature for gas dryers that others don't have.
