How to replace the ignition spark ignitor for Maytag MDG9700AWW - Thanks.
Access to the igniter (part #35001100) requires the removal of the top cover, console, and the front panel. Disconnect power to the dryer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.
Remove the top cover by removing the two 10-mm screws attaching it to the rear of the dryer then slide the cover rearward and lift it off the dryer cabinet. Take note of the notch in the top cover engaging the screw on the cabinet during reassembly.
Remove the two screws mounting the heater PCB board to the cabinet then disconnect the black and white connectors from the board.
Remove the four screws securing the console to the cabinet then rotate the console down and remove it from the dryer.
Remove the four screws securing the top of the front panel to the cabinet and the two screws at the lower portion of the door opening. Once the screws are removed, lean forward the top of the front panel and disconnect the interior light harness. Lift the panel to disengage the three tabs securing its bottom to the base of the dryer and move the panel away.
Disconnect the igniter harness and remove the single screw attaching the igniter to the burner assembly. Slide the igniter back and remove it.
Install and secure the new igniter then make sure to reconnect the harness. Reassemble the front panel, console, and the top cover by reversing the given removal steps above.
