Check the exhaust to see if it is clogged. If not, you may need a pair of gas valve coils (not very hard.)
Replace the coils if you see the ignitor glow and shut off, without the gas valve opening up.

There can be many reasons why your dryer will not start or turn...

The most common causes are the belt breaking or jumping off, or the motor going bad...

If you are sure that it is a gas powered dryer, the problem could be thermostat, flame sensor etc.

Maytag dryer will heat up the first time but not again. Igniter goes on but doesnt light.


Replace both valve coils. They will open the valve the first time, but when they get hot, they become intermittent at best.
