The MDG5500AW doesn't have a pilot it has a glow bar igniter but both the washer and dryer have electronic control boards unplug both units you'll be fine.

Smoke came from top of drum where light is when i opened the door. It does turn on but what is going on?

This may sound odd but take a very wet clot to any house lamp light bulb and turn it on. Your seeing steam as the water is vaporizing. It is kind of like you would see fog due to the heat of the moist light bulb window in the washer. However... if this symptom worsens or concerns you to the point that it generates fear then by all means have a service person check it out.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.
