Question and Answers

Q:

Touchpan nonfunctional, led light sweep from left to right like wave motion, can't run dryer MDG6800AWW Maytag Dryer

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Based on the LED sweeping across the control panel, it could have a failed user interface (touch panel) or it could have a failed control board. Try disconnecting the power cord from the wall outlet and leave it unplugged for a 2-3 minutes. Plug the unit back in and then see if it will accept any commands. If it will not accept any commands, then you can try putting the dryer into a service cycle to check the touch panel (user interface). You must first enter the Service mode and then enter the System check mode as shown below.

Enter Service Mode:

Press Air Fluff and Time (^) - 13 Key Membrane.
or
Air Fluff and Time (+) - 15 Key Membrane.
keys for 3 seconds, or until a beep is heard. The
machine will now be in Service Mode and “d” will be
displayed.

System Check Mode:

While in Service Mode, pressing the Air Fluff and Signal (+) - 13 Key Membrane or Air Fluff and Signal (+) - 15 Key Membrane keys for 3 seconds, will put the dryer into the System Check mode and "SC" will display. 

Membrane (user Interface/touch pad) Check:

The membrane check turns all the embedded LED’s on.
All the LED’s can then be toggled off by pressing the key associated with the LED. By pressing and checking to see if the LED comes on will check to see if all the buttons are working of not. If all the buttons are working, then it may have a failed electronic control board. Also, try opening and closing the door too. Make sure the drum lamp turn on and off when the door is opened and closed.

While in System Check Mode, pressing the Air Fluff and Sensor Dry - 13 Key or Air Fluff and Sensor Dry - 15 Key
keys for 2 seconds, will start a Membrane Pad Switch
Test. To exit the test at any point, press the same keys
again for 2 seconds or press the OFF key to exit Service Mode.

I recommend calling a service technician to properly diagnose and repair your dryer. Call Sears at 1-800-469-4663 to schedule a service appointment.

Q:

i installed a new belt on my mat tag neptune gas dryer modekl # mdg6800aww is there a way to tighten the pulley mdg6800aww

A:

Make sure that you ordered and received the correct belt. The belt for that model is part 33002535

 

Make sure that you have the belt properly routed through the motor pulley and the idler pulley. Here is a video that shows that belt routing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ufArteqWXk .

 

If the belt is routed properly, then you may have a bent bracket or other problems with the idler pulley or motor.

 

I hope that this information helps. If you need further assistance, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.

Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com

 Thanks for writting back James.   Looking up the information on the thermostats.

 

303395 Thermostat is a high limit thermostat.  Is a thermostat off the blower cone where the ignitor fits into.  It is screwed in on the right hand side middle.   I have it on the link below.  It is key number 22 and the screw is key number 48.   I am very sorry but I do not see any thermostats for this model with the part number 3387134.   It is a good part number for the thermostat but I do not see it listed on the diagram.

Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com

On this dryer, it is heating or not heating at all?

Is the ignitor coming on and going out?

All I know is that you ordered the thermostats but not the why.   I don't know weather you have a heating issue or a lighting issue to keep it lit with the ignitor or gas valve.

This machine is 10 years old and so therefore with being gas.   I would seriously think on getting a new dryer.   You have burner assemblys, ignitors, The gas valve amonst many items that can be a problem.   Expectant life on this machine is 12 years.

 If you have further questions please let me know.

The dryer starts and generates some heat and then begins blowing unheated air. When I called Sears parts on the phone, based on the symptpms the person thought it would be one of the 2 thermostats. She also said older dryers can last 30 years, which is not what we have found after the order was placed. It is 12 years old. Based upon research I have done, the most common causes of our problem is the Cycling Thermostat or'M' Series New Style Coil Kitor a coil Each of these were listed about 30%. But 13 other causes were mentioned including the other hi liniit thermostat we got which is a percentage of the source of problems. A local individual would charge me 45 an hour. Had called him since I was not sure if I could replace the part. Seems the worst part was replacing the hi limit thermostat, since one screw was on the opposite side so I had to get that one in first and tighten it enough so the thermostat would not rotate before I got the front screw into it. I am thinking back and I know I tightened both screws tight, but if the bottom part was not inside the hole enough would that cause it to fail. Sounds like I may be taking a chance to spend more. Hard to say about appliances as I still have a Sears central air consitionet which is 40 years old. Will likely go to our 3rd furnace at the same time. All other major appliances in our kitchen have been replaced with Kenmore appliances when we had Great Indoors redo our kitchen. Great Indoors was a Sears venture closed about a year or so ago which I was sorry to see happen.

Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com

Im very sorry for the problems.   With the information you just gave me, I would of had you check the thermal fuse which is the main fuse on your drying problems.   Part number 33001762.

When the dryer blows even the least little bit of heat then we know it isn't the heating element.

 I would guess the thermal fuse and the gas valve because it has the 2 coils on it to keep the heat generated with the 2 coils that are on it.   Most dryers you can get the coils by themselves cheap but this one comes as a gas valve complete.  Gas valve and the thermal fuse is on the link below.

gas valve per model mdg6800aww
