First check that the gas is turned on...then you may have a bad igniter .. if you have a amp meter put it on on wire of the igniter it need to pull 3.3 to 3.6 amps to open the gas valve ... if it does you need a new gas valve...

My Maytag gas dryer, Model No, LDG7500AAW will run but not heat. The igniter glows red, but the gas will not flow. What might be wrong?

Replace the 2 burner coils ,if the igniter keeps cycling trying to start the flame. If it doesn't replace the flame sensor mounted on the side of the burner tube.

I have a whirlpool gas dryer. Model# WGD55505Q0, Runs and blows air. no heat. I Shook the dryer and it worked 4 a few minutes. Now nothing

The problem sounds like the gas valve solenoid coils has gone out. Remove the front panel to access and have a view of the burner assembly then start the dryer to check whether the igniter glows red hot or not. The solenoid coils are indeed not working and need to be replaced if the igniter glows red hot but no gas is ignited.

Disconnect power to the dryer then pull the lint filter out and remove the screws near the opening.

Insert a putty knife or similar tool between the top panel and the front panel to release the clips securing the former to the latter on both sides as shown then rotate top panel up to the rear of the dryer.

Remove the front panel screws then lift the panel up and swing it to the side. Do not disconnect door switch since you are going to start the dryer.

You now have access and view of the burner assembly. Plug the dryer in then start it. Unplug the dryer and disconnect the flame/radiant sensor if the igniter glows red hot then plug the dryer back in and restart it. Replace the flame/radiant sensor if the dryer heats up with the sensor disconnected.

Replace the solenoid coils if the dryer still does not heat up if the igniter glows red hot and the flame/radiant sensor disconnected. Disconnect the wires from the coils and remove the screws from the bracket then pull the coils out. Slide the new coils in then secure it with the bracket and reconnect the wire harnesses.

In case the igniter does not glow, remove the back panel and bypass the thermal cut-off and the high-limit thermostat. Disconnect the wires shown then jump a wire between them and the two are bypassed.

Start the dryer then check again whether the igniter now glows or not. The igniter is broken, probably due to the shaking, and needs to be replaced if it fails glow now that the thermal cut-off and the high-limit thermostat are bypassed. The igniter is very fragile and easily breaks. Extra care must be done when handling it to about breakage.

Either the thermal cut-off or the high-limit thermostat has failed if the igniter glows with the two bypassed and the dryer heats up. Most likely it is the thermal cut-off but in either case, both of them must be replaced. Simply unscrew them from the box then install and secure the new ones. But if the dryer still does not heat up even with the flame/radiant sensor disconnected, the solenoid coils also need to be replaced.

My gas dryer starts fine than the flame goes out

replace the coils. i promise you. and here is a guide to most gas dryer problems that even a kid can see.

starts fine, cycles off, igniter comes on, hear a click, and no flame.-coils.
(can also be intermintent)

igniter stays on, no flame.-flame sensor

no glow from igniter.-igniter

remember, always allow about one minute for ignition.

Does the ignition glow when you start the dryer? if so you have power to gas valve and ignition system. if not you may have an open thermostat or thermalfuse.

If the ignitor just sits there and glows all day, you have other problems, It could be a gas valve, or ignitor sensor.

Intermitten Heat up

make sure that your vent is not plug up can you go outside your house and feel good air coming out the vent when the dryer is turn on if so the only other things it could be is the coils that sit on the ignotor assmebly or the high limit termistat is not working properly the coils are little black circle coils that sit in the ignitor assmly should have a metal braket across the top of them holding them in you can check resistance on these coils if you have an meter
