Question about Maytag Neptune MDG5500AW Gas Dryer
The issue is with the gas valve system and not with the vent system. A component in the gas valve system must have failed and prevents gas to be ignited for the dryer to heat up. The first thing to check is the igniter whether it is glowing red hot or not when the dryer is started. Check the continuity at room temperature of the radiant sensor, high-limit thermostat, and the physical condition of the igniter itself located on the burner assembly and the cycling thermostat on the blower housing outlet duct if the igniter fails to glow red hot. One of these components must have failed and needs to be replaced.
One or both of the gas valve solenoids must have failed if the igniter glows red hot but no gas is being ignited. Both of them must be replaced if that is the case. Please indicate the exact model number of the dryer should you need further assistance.
