You need to remove the front panel and check to see if the glow bar is lighting. If it is and you aren't getting any flame 1 of 2 things can be wrong the gas coils could be bad or the gas valve itself could be bad. the easiest way to check the gas coils is to take off the front panel (you will need either a philips head screw driver or a T20 security star bit) and loosen up the bracket that holds the gas coils down. Don't remove the screws completely. start the dryer and lift up the bracket. If it seems like the coils are pulling the bracket down then the coils are good and you will need to replace the gas valve

No heat..we had a basement flood and dryer won't heat up.


Hello,
If your dryer was under water, even if only a few inches, then the electrical parts inside it will need to dry out before you even attempt to use it. Chances are, you will have to have it serviced now or replaced completely.

Flooded and not heating now


There is no pilot light. You probably got water into gas jets, also all electronics to ignitor need to be dryed. Also blow out all gas parts. If dryer was plugged in at time of flood you could have shorted one of the thermal switches behind back cover. Check all of this I wrote.

Dryer won't run.


First, there is an excellent chance you have some kind of flood damage insurance.  It may pay for part of the repair.  You did not tell us what is not working but I'll guess it is the motor.  On many models, there is a switch on the motor which will not allow the elements to heat unless the motor is powered and running.

How much water did you have in the basement? Back in June we had flooding in the area, and the my recommendation to everyone has been to replace any appliance that was under any water.

If the motor was under water, wires or the gas valves, these components will corroded and could cause you future safety concerns.
