The easiest way i can tell you if it is an ignitor problem or a thermal fuse or something else is to turn the timer  to the timed section past 10-20 minutes then slowly turn the time back while the machine is running once you hit the last 5 minutes you should hear a click at the timer and at the gas valve. If you only hear a click at the  timer and not at the gas valve it is probably a thermal fuse and control thermastat. If you hear a loud click at the gas valve it could be a bad ignitor .If you see an orange glow but no heat or intermitant heat the coils on the gas valve may be at fault

Dryer doesn't heat

Is it electric or gas? Most likely u have a blown thermostat or fuse. Could also be a bad heating element if electric. Or bad solenoid coils if gas

Just bought a new (old) house and the Maytag stackable w/d stayed. The dryer doesn't heat up at all. We've cleared the vents, but still no heat.

Check that you have 220 volts. or see that the timer is not set to Air Fluff ( no Heat)
you may have a bad thermostat, or a broken
heater coil. or a broken belt.

Dryer gas heat not staing lit

It is probably electronic gas valve, or safety valve that let the gas flow and shuts off immediately. Better take it to the repair shop will save yourself $75.00 service fee.

Maytag LSG7800AAW Dryer not working

Its Either One Of Two Problems If Its Electric Its The Thermostat but if its gas it can be either the thermostat or the igniter. If its gas you can watch the igniter or listen to hear if its lighting. If it lights its the thermostat cause if the thermostat is malfunctioning it will turn the gas off when it doesn't detect the flame. It turns the gas off to prevent your home from filling with gas. Hope this helps.

Maytag LSE7806ACE dryer stopped working

pry the top up at the corners and remove attaching screws for the front panel and remove carefully. Now you should be able to see the canister that contains the heat element and the thermal fuse. If your thermal fuse is bad you also need to replace the high limit thermostat switch which is located on the canister itself and check that the heating element is not broken anywhere throughout the coil.

What caused wires to be burnt at clips that connects to part

that's your cycling thermostat and it's bad also check continuity of your thermal fuse (usually off white and looks like a tilted square) and check your high limit thermostat (closest to the heat element) and also check that the heat element is not broken any place throughout the coil of it. While you have it apart clean out the build up of lint everywhere.

Insufficient heat

I would start by checking the venting for obstructions. disconect the hose and try a load. dont leave the hose off for too many loads as the lint and moisture will go into the room.
