Question and Answers

Q:

Maytag Dryer Model MDG3706AWW

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Based on your symptom it sounds like a restriction in the venting system or a weak high limit thermostat. There are two components mounted on the combustion chamber, high limit thermostat and a thermal fuse. The high limit will have a red and purple wire attached. If there is venting restriction it will cause the burner flame to flame upwards instead of be drawn back and up into the heater box causing the high limit to break the circuit to the gas valve. Take the vent hose off from the back of the dryer to see if the flame stays on any longer. If it does, check for a blockage or restriction in vent system or below the lint filter. If it continues to flame out, replace the high limit thermostat. NOTE: The front panel must be installed before running the dryer or the flame will short cycle on the high limit.

Check the things I have covered here and if I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.
