No pilot light, you can generally hear a faint hiss as it burns, if there were one. The burner is ignited electrically, similar to when you push that button on a gas BBQ, only a dryer does it automatically (push to start button) when turned on (and the door is closed). If you remove the bottom panel, you should see the igniter spark, if working properly.

Dryer runs but does not heat on maytag model med6000xw1


If you have a newer model with electronic ignition, check igniter by the burner, or if a pilot light ignition, obviously re-light, but possibly the gas safety interlock switch is tripped by a weak pilot flame, which causes main gas valve to stay off. Best guess, igniter element has cracked, and is simple to replace, order online.

My dryer has no heat. is the pilot light out if so where would it be located?


Gas dryers have an electric igniter, no pilot light. If it runs but doesn't heat, it could be: igniter or thermal fuse

How do I light the ignite pilot light


Most new dryers don't actually have pilot lights. They use an electric heater that turns red hot, and ignites the gas at the right time. If your trying to light the pilot light (which probably doesn't exist) because the gas isnt being ignited,,, its possible that the electric igniter needs to be replaced.

Kenmore dryer not heating


hi,
1) When this happens, something has interrupted the heat source. Run the dryer for a couple of minutes to see if it gets hot. Be sure you don't have the dial or controls on a non-heat setting, such as "Fluff" or "Wrinkle Control."






 


2) On an electric dryer, this may mean that the circuit breaker or fuse that controls the power has blown; reset or replace this. Be aware that a dryer may have two breakers or fuses. The motor will run when one works, but the heating element requires both.

3) On a gas dryer, recheck the control's setting to be sure it's not on a heat-free setting. Check the gas valve behind the dryer to be sure the gas supply is turned on. Also make sure the house's main gas valve is turned on.

4) Most modern dryers have electronic ignition instead of a pilot light. If yours has electronic ignition and isn't heating, call a qualified repairperson.

On an older dryer, make sure the pilot light is burning. If it isn't, relight it. You can find directions in your owner's manual, and pilot light instructions are often mounted next to the pilot light on the burner, too.


Thanks for using FixYa

Pilot


according to the model number its an electric dryer so the is no pilot. todays GAS dryers do not have pilots anyway. there is a globar that heats up and then the gas comes on, passing over the hot globar causing the gas to ignite
