I have AMANA NGD 5500TQ0 DRYER AND FIRES WON'T LIT


Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.



if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....



If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.



check out this electric no heat tip...

Not heating up Gas Dryer


Modern gas dryers do not have a pilot light. They have an electronic ignitor (glow or spark). A glow ignitor turns on several seconds before the gas turns on and should get orange hot. A spark ignitor should make a clicking or buzzing noise.

Most likely the ignitor is bad but you can check it fairly easily to make certain. The best instructions I have found are at

http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/dryer/gdryer/check/ignitor.php

If it is the ignitor it can be replaced with a few hand tools. Remove the bad ignitor. Write down the make, model, and serial # of your dryer. Call your local appliance parts store to see if they have one it stock before driving over there.

Amana Gas Dryer Model LG44097 suddenly quit heating. Can I correctly assume the problem is the Fabric Selection knob, part PS2201078 that controls heat/no heat?


probably not as these rarely go. More likely is that the glow bar ignitor on the gas valve has failed. Unlike old gas models, today's dryers do not use a standing pilot but a glow ignitor. This is the weakest link in the system. Part number fsp-279311

No heat in gas dryer


Remove the front panel. Leave the door switch wires connected.
Turn the dryer on and look for the glow bar ignitor to glow red.
This may take a couple minutes.
No glow. Replace the ignitor.

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.
