Question about Maytag Neptune MDG5500AW Gas Dryer
I have checked the following for continuity. ignitor, overtemp sw., round switch on flame tunnel, 2 round switches on exhaust (plus the previously mentioned overtemp sw.) One of the two round switches on the exhaust is open. I assume this is not normal. But, would this keep both the ignitor and the coils from at least trying to ignite?
Yes, that open switch is the high limit thermostat. this will shutdown the unit and prevent it from heating. you must replace the open switch(thermostat) asap and, replace the thermal fuse as well.

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.
