I have a Maytag LDG 4000 gas dryer with electronic ignition. The igniter glows, but does not ignite the gas. I can not smell any gas, so I'm assuming a valve of some sort, internal to the dryer, is not...


Igniter glows - No gas ignition. If the igniter heats
up but the main burner flame is not ignited, remove
power and using an ohmmeter, check the following:
• Open secondary coil
• Open holding coil
• Open wire harness
• Stuck flame sensor (Stuck closed)
Most likely bad gas valve coils.

The gas was turned off for a 24 hour period neptune mdg4000


Here's a stab in the dark at your problem:
You moved your dryer to paint or re-do flooring. Handled the dryer a bit rough, so the ignitor broke. (they are fragile, especially after they have been used awhile) You may be able to confirm this by tipping the dryer from side to side or front to back a few times (easy, not violently) to see if you hear anything rattle in the bottom of the dryer. That rattle would be a part of the broken ignitor. (it still might not rattle, but the ignitor is the most likely suspect)

Maytag Neptune MDG 5500 AWQ heats sporatically


your dryer has a safety feature that it will not run or heat when the door is opened. It is so no gas fumes are exhauseted into your home. Once the safety is engaged, It will not allow the dryer to restart for a short while. It should clear itself after only a few minutes. Hope this helps, good luck.
