Question about Maytag Neptune MDG5500AW Gas Dryer
Gas smell when opening door
You have a gas leak from the gas valve being faulty. DO NOT use the dryer until you have replaced the valve! I have been doing appliance repair for 15 years and I have seen 7 homes that have burned down due to this very same problem. Please don't use the dryer! Here is the new gas valve to order.
Keep me posted!

Save yourself the repair call and replace the gas coils. They're a $30 part and it takes all of five minutes. Works like a charm.

It certainly sounds like you are not getting a flame established in your dryer. That can be one of several components such as a non-resettable thermal fuse, gas valve assembly or control relay to that gas valve assembly. Unless you are well versed on how to work on these kinds of components, I suggest you just call in an appliance tech or.. let me know if you want to attempt diagnosing and repairing it yourself. Be advised that there are elements of danger in so doing. Let me know how you want to procede on this and I'd be happy to walk you thru it..

turn gas off to dryer. For safety it is best not to wait get your gas company to find leak(i don't think they charge for that)if it is at the control valve you should take the screws that hold the coils down out.Remove coils and rubber O rings and replace all with new ones it comes as a kit
