How to remove the top panel on a Maytag MGD9600 gas dryer

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Dryer Repair 22 October 2011 · 1,161 views

Piece of pie, tovarish! Grand Master RegUS_PatOff calls the dance steps:

Remove the three hex-head screws from the rear flange of the dryer’s top cover.
Lift the rear of the top cover and slide it back so the tabs clear the catches on the bracket,
and remove the cover from the unit.
NOTE: Make sure that the tabs slide under the bracket catches when you reinstall the top cover.

READING ERROR CODES

1. Rotate cycle selector knob to the 3 O’clock position.
2. Press and hold the Select and Pause Cancel buttons simultaneously for six seconds.
3. Immediately after, press and hold the START and Pause Cancel buttons simultaneously for 4 seconds.
4. Rotate the cycle selector knob to the 2 O’clock position.
The four indicator lights of Drying, Cool Down, Wrinkle Rid (Press Saver), and Clean Lint Filter
will flash the number of times for the first digit of the code
and the START indicator light will flash the number of times for the second digit.
Take separate counts of each indicator light, then repeat to confirm in order to be accurate in identifying the proper error code.
The code is obtained by counting the number of times the lights flash.
Example E24: The four indicator lights would flash twice indicating the 2
and the START indicator light will flash four times indicating the 4.
The four indicator lights and the START indicator light start flashing at the same time.
The control will pause for 2 seconds, then repeat the code.

To move on to the next code, press the OPTIONS button.

To exit this mode, simultaneously press and hold the Select and Pause Cancel buttons for six seconds.

The Willie Method ™ for testing the radiant (flame) sensor in a gas dryer burner

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Dryer Repair 19 September 2011 · 2,835 views
Willie, method, radiant, sensor and 1 more...
Gas dryer not firing up and all the components of the burner check out good but you're not sure how to check that flame sensor on the side of the burner tube? Samurai Appliance Repair Academy Fellow Budget Appliance Repair (a.k.a., Willie) reveals the wax on-wax off moves for testing the radiant sensor in a gas dryer.

The full way to bypass and test if the radiant sensor is the problem:
1) UNPLUG DRYER FIRST!
2) remove both wires from the radiant sensor
3) bypass the sensor by sliding the two connector terminals together and make sure they are away from everything
4) plug the dryer back in and set to a timer position that should heat.
5) start dryer and and watch for igniter to start glowing.
6) if the igniter glows wait about 10 to 12 seconds and pull the two wires apart carefully making sure not to touch the ends or short them to anything.
7) if all else is OK with the dryer the flame should light up when you separate the two radiant sensor wires
8) if the above all works OK and it didn't before then replacing the radiant sensor should fix your problem.
