Question about Maytag Neptune MDG6800 Gas Dryer
It would not heat so I replaced the igniter and all of the thermostats. The flame sensor checked ok. When I turned it on the ignitor glows for about 10 seconds. After it shut off I got a strong gas odor and no ignition. Could this be due to the gas working into the line after being cut off? Also I did not have the exhaust hooked up.
It sounds like you didn't install the ignitor properly. Try re installing the ignitor, because it's opening the gas valve saying it's hot enough to light, but if it's out of position, it won't create proper combustion.

SOURCE: timer stopped running, no heat
the valve body is the problem there is a one way valve inside it if thois fails the gas will not flow to your burner. this is a prevention feature it's design is to keep back pressure to insure a flame doesn't travel back through to the source and cause an explosion.the valve body will have an intergrated regulater so replace the whole valve assembly and it should take care of the problem

your gas coils are bad. they open up for the first cycle but fail to after. Replace your coils and this will solve your problem

You may want to disconnect the vent from the back of the dryer and try it. Flame rollback will cycle the burner off by the high limit.
Considering what you have already done to it, if the problem still exists you probably have bad coils on the gas valve. make sure you replace them as a set.
The thermal fuse is a one time device. If it opens, the burner will not come on at all.

If you did all the things listed, there are only 2 left that will cause the problem. The cycle thermostat located on the exhaust vent and possibly poor airflow. Remove the connecting vent from the rear and try a timed load. If it works repair the vent exhaust problem. Most cycle thermostats include a thermister that could also be defective causing the short cycle. The flame sensor and gas valve coils would have been the number 1 diagnosis. I would need a model number to more specific.

check the thermal fuse in the dryer vent duct to be open,then if not the flame eye" radiant sensor" or the high-limit thermostat both on the burner tube if the sensor doesn't see(sense) a flame the gas valve will stay shut,then check the gas valve coils,both the BOOST and SECONDARY coil valves on the gas valve body as these can open up and not gas into the burner
