Hi everyone. This is my first post. I have Maytag Atlantis dryer model number MDG7600AWW. I bought it sometimes in September of 2001. Here is the problem with it. The dry runs but no heat. I took it apart and this is what I see. The igniter gets really red. I hear click and the flame start going. After about a minute it goes off. I stop the dryer and turn it back on. Now glow gets red but no flame. It is very random out off 5 times flame comes on once but shuts off. I have checked vent and the are no clogs.  Please advise what it could be. I have read thru the forum, the way I see it this could be few thing. May be someone can narrow it down. Thank you.

Could be weak coils on top of the gas valve or the valve itself is going bad, however since I have seen only one bad gas valve in 28 years I would lean toward replacing the coils, they may have gotten weak and cannot open the valve when they are hot,

Thank you for the idea. I replaced both coils and machine is drying again. I just have one more question. They way it drys now: Flame comes out for about 3 - 4 minutes, then it off for no more then one minutes and it is back on for 3-4 min and it goes on and on. Is this how dryer should work. Thx.

Well, the flame should stay on longer when the load is wet, then cycle off more often as it gets drier....might want to check the temps of the air out of the dryer exhaust pipe to see what it is cycling at, make sure it is not still short cycling...

pegi i looked @ electrical diagram and the flame sensor and the coils look like they are connected in parallel.  I thought the ignitor allows current to flow to the flame sensor and if the sensor revealed a flame the sensor would in turn supply ample current to energize the coils.   just trying to learn Thanks pegi.  Please help

No, the flame sensor allows current to the igniter, when the igniter gets hot enough it opens the flame sensor and the igniter shuts off, then the route of less reistance kicks in and the flow is transferred to the coils on top of the gas valve so they can open the second chamber and hold it open.  The other chamber is already open, hence the click you hear when it first calls for heat..see what the air temp is coming out of the dryer vent, if it matches within 10 degrees what is on your cycling thermostat all is working ok.
