Question and Answers


dryer not drying LDG8704AAE


Thank You for contacting I do apologize for the delay in answering your question.

There could be one of several possible component failures preventing your dryer from heating.



Thermal cut-off 

Operating thermostat 

Thermal fuse 

Flame sensor

Solenoid coils

Motor centrifugal switch

In order to diagnose the failure will require disconnecting the power cord from the power source and removing the rear panel.

The hi-limit, thermal cut-off, operating thermostat and thermal fuse can be access and checked from the rear of the dryer. The failure is most likely one of the four components list above with key numbers beside them. Each one of these four components listed above with key numbers will need to be disconnected and then checked for continuity using an ohm meter. Which ever component ohms open (no continuity) will need to be replaced. I added three images to reference below. One is the wiring diagram, the basic gas dryer circuit and one showing the parts location.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website:

Thanks for the question about you dryer not heating at times, I will be glad to assist with this problem.
Based on your description of the problem I think that your dryer is working okay and the problem is in your venting system hooked to the dryer. try this simple test; remove the vent hose from the back of the dryer and run a normal load(more than one of you want to) if the dryer does a good job drying in the normal amount of time then the vent is blocked and needs cleaning.
You should also check the dryer filter closely to be sure it has not accumulated a film over the screen that will reduce air flow through the clothes while drying. I hope these tips help, if not please reply with added details and I will be happy to respond.

Thanks Ron H.

Thank you for your question.

I can understand asking what all you would need to accomplish a good repair of the dryer.

I would suggest that you should replace the two glides supports and the front drum seal and then while you have the drum out, check the rear drum support roller to make sure they are in good shape.

I would add the 314820 front felt seal. This seal uses a high temperature contact cement to attach it to the from bulk head panel.

The part number for the adhesive is: 5308027429.

You should not need any special tools.

You will need a scraper to remove the felt seal if you decide to replace it.

Or if you want to get it locally at an appliance part store you can get the Maytag adhesive 55980.

I hope this will help with repairing your dryer.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.
