Maytag LDG7500AAL dryer ignitor lites up but burner will not lite
Their are 2 possibilities,based on exactly what is happeninh with your dryer.
1) If after the igniter came on,it stay on for 30 seconds to 1 minute and went off,but there was no flame as soon as the igniter went off? IF that is what your seening the coilds that open the gas valve are the problem. They are the 2 pod things on the top of the gas valve one of them has a plug with 2 wires on it,the other has a plug with 3 wires.IF no flame after the igniter went out those coils need to be replaced.
2) If the igniter came on and STAYED on and never went off within 1 minute?
for that since the igniter never turns off. The problem will be the flame switch. Its the black rectangle box mounted to the outside of the burner cone and has 2 wires attached to it.If the igniter did NOT go off the flame switch will be needed
The part numbers are,
GAS VALVE COILS 279834
