Put in new ignator will not lite

Did you follow installation instructions on the ignitor? The pilot light may have gone out. Try turning the gas off to the dryer for a couple minutes and then following the pilot light lighting instructions for the valve assembly. Youtube has many good videos on this as well.

Kitchenaid ensemble dryer won't start and panel won't light up but light is on inside when you open

If it is a electric dryer not gas then something simple to check would be your breaker box to make sure one side of your dryer breaker has not tripped because that would allow the light inside to lite up but nothing else. I had one leg of the 220 outlet go bad at a freinds house .... kind of unusual but it does happen.

Need to relight pilot light on MDG6200AWW gas dryer.

That unit has an electronic ignitor. You should not have to lite the pilot. There is no pilot to lite. If the dryer is taking longer then normal to heat. Check your vent to the outside. If the ignitor is not turning on it could be the ignitor, flame sensor and or thermal fuse. Check D.I.Y. Appliance Repair Troubleshooting to see if there is anything that can help you there.

I think my pilot light went out, but I need to know how to locate it

Dryers do NOT use a standing pilot lite ..When the unit is turned on and heat is commanded on the gas valve opens and an igniter lite's the gas , then their is a flame sensor to see the flame from the burning gas if no flame is present it shuts the gas back off.. So if you have a no heat concern with your dryer it will be either the igniter, gas coil's or the flame sensor

The flame won't light everytime I turn the dryer on I have to turn it on and off a couple times to get it lite. And when it don't lite I hear a buzzing noise that I don't hear when it its lit.

Hi, If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes it is still not working properly. if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip.... If you have an electric dryer, you can have many differentthings that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat. check out this electric no heat tip...

Im trying to lite the pilet

This dryer has no pilot light. When you turn dryer on the igniter turns on and lights gas. If yours is not igniting, you could have a bad igniter or a bad heater cavity switch located behind back panel attached to dryer vent area, has two wires connected to it.
