My Maytag gas dryer model MDG7600AWW is about 12 years old. Everything else works fine except it takes 4-5 drying cycles instead of 1 to completely dry my clothes properly. The flat igniter was simply cracked but not broken so it only worked some times. My gas dryer igniter and the 2 ignition coils work hand in hand so I replaced all 3 parts. The ignition coils provide a solid and consistent power supply to the igniter for proper burner tube function. Disconnect power cord from wall outlet. Shut off gas supply by turning the wall gas valve off. Remove 2 small philips screws to detach front panel door from dryer frame. Remove 2 additional philips screws on left front side panel inner door frame. Gently pull front dryer panel off beginning at top and put it aside. Igniter and the 2 ignition coils are plainly visible and easily accessible at bottom right corner of dryer. Igniter is attached to the burner tube and facing into the heater housing assembly. The 2 ignition coils are attached just above the gas valve on the rear of the burner tube. The ignition coils are simply attached to the rear of the heater tube with one bracket using 2 small philips screws. First, disconnect igniter plug wire harness. Next, I recommend using a small open end applicable size wrench (5/16 perhaps) to remove attaching igniter screw. A small 1/4 ratchet with applicable socket size may also be used. Handle the igniter only from the white ceramic part when installing. You don't have to completely remove the igniter screw from the burner tube. The igniter has a white ceramic horse shoe shape slot in which the attaching screw goes through for tightening to the burner tube. Just unscrew generously for removal and replacement of the igniter. Do NOT over tighten igniter screw as the white ceramic plate may break from over torqing. Reconnect igniter wire plug harness. The igniter part I used was PartSelect Number PS373025. Next, remove the ignition coil bracket by unscrewing the 2 small philips screws from rear of the heater tube frame. Remove only 1 ignition coil at a time by removing the wire plug harness and simply lifting upward. One coil will have 2 prongs while the other has 3 prongs so you can't go wrong when reconnecting the wire plug harnesses. I used the PartSelect 'M' Series New Style Coil Kit (2 coils included)which was PartSelect Number PS334310. Replace the front dryer panel back. Attach the front door to the panel and dryer frame using the 2 philips screws. Attach the 2 left side inner door front panel philips screws to dryer frame. Turn on the wall gas valve. Reconnect power cord to wall outlet.
Replaced igniter, then the two coils on the gas valve. I'm not sure which actually fixed the problem as I was not testing the repair correctly. I needed to attempt to dry an actual load of wet clothes.
AS it turned out the problem was not the igniter but the timer of which we figured out how to force it to work but now we will be ordering the part from your great company.Thanks for everything.Carolyn Richrath
4ea screws to take off the door and front panel.1ea 1/4" bolt to loosen the old igniterUnplug IgniterTo install, reverse the order. It took me more time to open the box than to install it.
Take the front panel off,remove the two philips screws in the bottom of panel to get it off. Unplug the start switch (two wires) set aside. Unscrew the igniter (one hex head screw) remove igniter. When replacing igniter place a wash rag or soft material down 1st so that the fragile igniter doesn't get bumped, it will break easily. Put the screw back in the igniter, plug in the switch, put the door back on. The dryer will light & the timer will work.
unscrewed and unpluged old igniter and reconected the new one. saved over $100 in just 10 mins.
Unplugged the machine. Removed the front cover by removing the 2 Philips screws near the bottom of the front of the machine. Unplugged the igniter. Replaced it. Put this all back together.Note: Fire will not stay on while front cover is off or door is open.
My boyfriend did the repair. He had no previous knowledge about repairing appliances. He broke the first igniter we purchased b/c he did not realize how fragile it was. But, after we got the new one everything went fine. The dryer works great!!
First I unplugged the dryer, and removed the front panel. Then I plugged it back in and had my wife push the start button while I watched. I noticed nothing lighting up. I then went on your website and typed in the model number. I saw what the igniter looked like, and ordered it. When it came I replaced it, and probably saved a couple hundred dollars by doing it myself. Thanks PartSelect.
My husband fixed it and it didn't seem to take long. The dryer runs like new again.
First I removed the screws holding the front of the dryer and the door in place, then removed the front panel. Next, I simply located where the old igniter had been mounted, mounted the new one on the bracket, tightened it up, and re-attached everything.For the first time I had ever delved into the guts of a home appliance, this was a remarkably easy repair. 15, 20 minutes tops, and that's accounting for the time spent finding all the necessary screws and mounting points with no guidance.
Had to remove the door and front panel which was four screws, took out one screw then unplugged the igniter then reversed the process to put back together. The whole job took about 5mins.
removed the bottom panel from under the dryer(2 screws). you can see the igniter next to the burner. used a sock wrench to loosen the screw holding the igniter. not easy to get in there with big hands. removed the connector. had to wiggle it to get it loose. screwed new igniter in to place. be sure to use old screw, new one supplied was a little to long. plugged connector together. started dryer to see if was working correctly and it was. closed cover and was done. saved myself $129.00. thanks
Opened the door where igniter is located. Screwed the part onto where it belongs and connected the plugs. Closed the door. Viola!!! I did it myself. Me, a 61 year old lady. Go me.
