Hello all,
I have a Maytag dependable care plus gas dryer, model number LDG9304AAM.

The dryer no longer heats up and looks like no gas is getting to the igniter which just stays lit the whole time the dryer is on. I changed out the gas solenoid coils but the issue has not yet been resolved. Can I get some advise as to what I’m missing so that I can get this fixed myself. Any help anyone can provide would b greatly appreciated.



Thanks!

Hi,

The igniter should glow for a maximum of 30 seconds and then will be shut off by the flame sensor and the gas then should be ignited. If the ignitor is glowing and glowing you have a bad flame sensor.

Here's the flame(radiant) sensor for your model you can order:
Flame Sensor WP338906

Thanks for the response. I actually replaced that previously because the ignition was not working. When I replaced it, the igniter started to work again and it actually lit up the gas for 2 loads b4 not working again. Which is why I tried to replace the solenoids. I wasn’t getting any kind of resistance on them with a multimeter, so I thought that was the issue. It lit up for maybe 2 or 3 loads and the stopped again.

Ok, then the only other part that it could be that's causing this problem is the gas valve itself.

Here's the gas valve assembly for your model you can order:

There is a video in this link that shows you how to replace it:

Thanks for the response and sorry for getting back to you late. Ok, got 2 questions for you then:

1. Is there any way I can test to b sure that it does need to be replaced?

2. What is your return policy if the replacement does not fix the dryer? Does return policy apply to opened items?

1. No, not that I'm aware of.
2. Yes, you can return any part installed or not for a full refund within 365 days, less shipping.

That's very odd, that should of fixed it.

Wait, is your timer on AUTO-DRY or TIMED DRY? If you have it set on AUTO-DRY change it to TIMED DRY and see if it fires up.
