Question and Answers

Q:

T5 MDG6700AWW Maytag Maytag laundry

A:

Thank you for your question. From what you are describing it sounds like the flame sensor or the high limit thermostat is malfunctioning. This could be the result of poor or restricted venting. You have to have good air flow in order to keep the flame from causing the high limit thermostat to short cycle.

Once you have confirmed the venting & air flow is good I would recommend replacing both the high limit thermostat & flame sensor to see if this solves the problem.

Q:

Maytag Dryer Model # mdg6700aww, fire shut off after 5 -10 Seconds

A:

It next to impossible to get the clothes dried when the ignitor keeps going out on the Kenmore dryer. The experts are here to assist you with that problem. I am providing a few links with similar issues on dryers while an expert responds.

I know that it can be very difficult to have issues with your dryer. I recommend checking the exhaust vent duct to the outside of your home for a clog or restriction. Although a gas dryer should normally be always vented properly to the outside of the home, you can try a temporary test to see if a restricted exhaust vent is causing this problem. Clean the lint screen thoroughly. If you use dryer softener sheets, wash the lint screen with water and dry it thoroughly. Ventilate the laundry room and disconnect the exhaust vent on the back of the dryer so that it temporarily vents directly into the laundry room. Fill the dryer with a medium load of wet laundry and start a cycle using a high heat setting. Observe the burner to see if it ignites and heats properly. Check the cycling temperature of the air coming out of the exhaust of the dryer. It should heat to about 150 degrees and then cycle between 140 and 150 degrees. If the dryer cycles properly during this temporary test, then a clogged exhaust vent system to the outside of your home is causing this problem.

If the dryer is not cycling properly, make a note of the temperatures at which it is actually cycling.

A failed operating thermostat or a weak high limit safety thermostat could cause the burner to cycle at a lower than normal temperature. I recommend unplugging the dryer and checking these components. The image below shows the wiring diagram for your dryer. You can view a parts list diagram for your dryer on the Sears Parts Direct website. The operating thermostat is on the blower housing and the high limit thermostat is located on the heater cone assembly. You would need to heat each thermostat with a hot air gun and monitor the temperature at which it opens with a volt/ohm meter. NOTE: You should only access and check these thermostats if you are completely confident in your technical ability to safely disassemble the dryer. Be sure that the dryer is unplugged before accessing internal components.

NOTE: Be sure to reconnect the exhaust vent system following the testing of the dryer. It must be properly vented to the outside of the home for normal use. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.
