Question about Hotpoint NVL333GY Gas Dryer
I didn't go down and find model number but I think most have the same theory of operation. It is 7-8 yrs old. Vent is not plugged ,lint filter is clean and there is a good air flow out the vent. It has been in the same position for years.
I never know if clothes will be dry or wet when I go down to get. When it DOES light I hear the click and then the flame come on. When it doesn't light I do NOT hear the click and it does not light.
If I am standing, waiting and I don't hear the click I move temp selector from heat to no heat and back to heat. It may or may not click as it would when trying to light and when it does click it doesn't always ignite.
Id start by replacing the ignighter on the drier it should light withen thirty seconds of turning the drier on even if its glowing doesnt mean its getting hot enough to open the safty valves

you need a dryer vent brush first,bought at home depot cheap,and clean the entire vent to the house,then clean where the vent hooks up to the machine,if your filter is where your door is pull out the filter and stick the brush in there and pull out lint,also use your vacume,remember you let some lint out when you let the hose blow out but theres a lot more there to clean,and also unplug your machine as you do this,if this helps please give me a fix ya vote

Number 10 is the dryer filter. Before each load the filter must be pulled out and the lint removed.
If yall don't know about that filter then the dryer must be clogged slap up.
Looks like you gonna need to take out side and give it a good cleanup.
