First thing to do is figure out if their was a problem with the exhaust. You gotta check the vent pipe and the filter housing for excessive lint buildup. Clean all that up then check the duct fuse to see if it is bad. the dryer will run with the fuse blown on most gas fueled dryers.
If all them safetys is good then their must be a probo with one or more of the components of the gas assembly itself. The first thing you check is the flame sensor. If it is open (dead) then the ignitor won't glow. If that turns out to be ok then I next check the ignitor. If it is bad then replace it of course. NOTE: if the dryer works some times and then sometimes not then those pesky gas valve solenoids are intermittant. Sort of like the New Orleans Saints, they work half the time if you is lucky. Replace them. Read more

Put in new ignator will not lite


Did you follow installation instructions on the ignitor? The pilot light may have gone out. Try turning the gas off to the dryer for a couple minutes and then following the pilot light lighting instructions for the valve assembly. Youtube has many good videos on this as well.

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.

Maytag dryer pilot light


You might have a hot surface ignitor that if broken can fall off and be somewhat difficult to locate by sight having never replaced one before.
Look at the new parts base as thats all you may have showing.
The ignitor regarless of type is very close to the gas manifold temination
going into the combustion compartment.
Replacing the new ignitor BE CAREFUL not to touch or bump the ignitors surface or it may fry out before you leave! they break easily!
I would use magnetic nutdrivers, its either 1/4 or 5/16 inch on most everything, very handy for furnace and AC work too

Th pilot won't start ,motor start but won't light the pilot


I have a Kenmore Series 80 (Model # 66812694, Stock # 66812) that will not start. The light comes on, but no power when you push the start button. I have checked the fuse box and everything is fine. I've also tried unplugging for 10-15 minutes and replugging it in, but no success. Any suggestions?

Gas dryer Maytag model # LDG410


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.
