Ok Guys and or Gals...

Got a Maytag DG 303 dryer and its not working so good...

Replaced the Gas Valve relays, yet, the Ignitor Glows, The Gas Fires.. Pretty Blue and Orange flame are Present... For just a short time...

Then Poof, it goes out, Not to Be Seen again unless I stop the Process and Start it over again...

What do I need to replace now?

Thanks,

... Ignitor Glows, The Gas Fires.. Pretty Blue and Orange flame are Present... ..
... Then Poof, it goes out,

was that the original symptom ?
... Dryer must be fully assembled for correct air-flow ... :whistling:

Original Problem was that the Gas would ignite, but go out after 20 or 30 secs then not reignite...
and its fully assembled with all parts in their proper positions..

Run it again but with the vent completely disconnected from the back of the dryer.

43 seconds might be enough time for the dryer to get up to temp when empty. Does it cycle back on?

Getting warmer! Check that blower wheel, you might find it slopped out on the motor shaft which will impair air flow. Do you remember hearing a rumbling from inside the dryer when it started up and stopped?

Discovered after taking off the front cover for the blower assembly that the Blower Fan is in fact wobbling on the motor shaft
and is looking as if its been vibrating consistently for awhile...

So looks like this could be the culprit...
