You don't light the pilot. Gas dryers have a glow bar type ignitor. These get very fragile with age and will burn out like a light bulb. The other thing that will wipe out the glowbar is moving the machine if it gets handled roughly.

    The glow bar is mounted right next to the gas burner in back of the gas valve.

Dryer runs but does not heat on maytag model med6000xw1

If you have a newer model with electronic ignition, check igniter by the burner, or if a pilot light ignition, obviously re-light, but possibly the gas safety interlock switch is tripped by a weak pilot flame, which causes main gas valve to stay off. Best guess, igniter element has cracked, and is simple to replace, order online.

How to light pilot light on maytag gas dryer model dg408

There is no pilot on your dryer. It is an electronic ignition so it has an electronic ignitor. There is no standing pilot on the unit. You have a mechanical failure and it will require a technician to diagnose the problem. Hope this helps.

The dryer was heating fine earlier, but now is not heating at all. Is there a pilot light on my dryer that may have been blown out?

Hi, With the dryer running, look into the small front panel and see if the ignitor is glowing at all. If the ignitor glows but there is no flame, the coils on the gas valve are bad. If the ignitor does not glow, you will need to (with the dryer unplugged) check continuity on the thermostats and the flame sensor on the side of the burner.
If any of these parts show no continuity, that part will need changed.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.
