No pilot...

Yours is a "hot surface" electric igniter ...

The link (below) should take you directly there...
(picture is just for viewing ... Retailer sales site)

Please be advised... gas appliances must be externally vented & installed in a manner as NOT TO THREATEN human life.

EVEN if you are having a HIGHLY QUALIFIED technician install, inspect & operate your equipment... The instructions should be completely read & understood by EVERY USER.

ADDITIONALLY it would be VERY WISE to consider getting a carbon-monoxide detector ...

Like your life depends on it.. because it could...!!

Be safe.

SOURCE: Maytag DG612 gas dryer does

unplug your unit.You have an ignitor no pilot. Just because they glow they are not good. Do you have a meter and an amp clamp? Test all the limits and thermisters for continuity. If you find one with no continuity it is bad.

SOURCE: Dryer lights works, but when

I am having the same problem. Dried towels last night. This morning, I loaded it, turned it on, it did not lock the door or start drying (spinning) but the timer started counting down. I pressed Cancel twice, unplugged it for a few minutes then tried again. Problem still exists. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: i have Samsung-7.3 Cu. Ft. 7-Cycle Electric

i would take the plug panel off the back and make sure you are getting the full 220 volts on the terminal,, (it could be in the cord itsself), if that is not your issue, it might be your main board, since it is new i wouldn't tear into it because it will void the warranty

Why is my timer not counting down, and no heat?

Make sure the vent and heater air intake are not clogged with lint. Also, check the gas pilot to make sure it is not blocked up with gas line sediment, and the ignitor is working properly. The timer is probably waiting for a signal from the flame sensor.

The gas had been turned off. how do I relight the pilot?

Shut gas valve off and let it air out. You can see the pilot with the little rod on it. Turn valve to pilot position and light a lighter to light the pilot. Hold the valve for a minute. If it stays lit, then turn valve fully to the ON position.

Dryer runs fine but does not heat

Check that the pilot light is lit and flame kicks on when dryer is activated. If no flame, then check gas valve. If only pilot remains lit but does not increase when dryer is activated, then you could have a bad coupler or sensor or circuit problem which would have to be tested with a voltmeter and/or test light.
