Dryer LEDs flashing
Model Number: MDG4658 Brand:
1 - 5 years
We recently experienced a power outage and it appears the only appliance affected is the dryer (Maytag - go figure). The dryer will start, but will not stay running. It will shut off after anywhere from 5-10 seconds. After it shuts off all of the LEDs will blink twice. Obviously, unplugging and plugging the machine back in does not change this behavior. The LEDs will blink twice about every 20-30 seconds, even after rotating the cycle selection knob to 'power off' and pushing the knob. It appears to me that the gas is not igniting as there is no burst of hot air, but there is no smell of gas either.
I opened the top and grabbed the troubleshooting sheet. After entering service mode on the dial, the resultant diagnostic code is the wrinkle-prevent LED blinking only. This of course does not translate on the diagnostic code chart. In running the diagnostic 3 times, the second time the 30 minute LED also blinked, but I have not been able to make that repeat. Visual inspection of the control board shows nothing obvious as being burned out or any other unusual condition.
FWIW, I'm done with Maytag. We own a washer, dryer and refirgerator and they all have had problems, with the Neptune dryer being the most expensive to fix. No more.
Suggestions? Thanks in advance.
