Question and Answers

Q:

Dryer runs but doesn't heat up MDE9806AYW Maytag Electric/gas dryer

A:

Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com. It is unfortunate to hear that you are having issues with your dryer and do understand your frustration. Glad to help out. Im looking at your model number MDE9806AYW and there are a couple parts you would want to check with a multi-meter. If you do not have experiance using a multi-meter I recommend having one of our Sears Technicians out to diagnose the problem.

The first part you want to check is the glow bar ignitor. This ignitor can burn out over time. Which will cause your dryer to not heat. Because the ignitor won't be able to light the gas.

The next two parts you want to look at are the thermostates. The thermostates trigger the ignitor and the fan to kick on once the dryer is started. If the ignitor is glowing and clicks off but there is no flame then the gas valve or gas coils are likely at fault. If the ignitor doesn't glow then the most likely cause of the problem is a bad thermal fuse. When a gas dryer will run but not heat the most likely cause of the problem is an open thermal fuse.

A gas dryer will run with a bad thermal fuse but it will not be able to heat.

The image below will show you how to access the thermal fuse on most newer Kenmore dryers. Remember to unplug the washer first.

If you don't have a toe panel to remove then the thermal fuse will be located behind the back panel of the dryer.  If you have further questions please resubmit your question for further information. Here is a link for  videos that will help with your issue.

On an electrical dryer you will want to check or test the heating element and the thermostats in the unit. There are videos on testing the heating element online. If you have further questions please resubmit your question for further information.

Q:

What would cause my Maytag dryer to make a high pitch squealing noise and smell hot?

A:

The high pitched squealing noise is likely emitting from the idler pulley or from one of the drum support rollers. It is also possible for blower wheel to wear out and start to slip on the motor shaft which will cause a lack of airflow through the heater assembly. This can cause it smell hot. I recommend checking the venting system for any kinks or restrictions that could also cause it to smell hot.

I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your dryer.
