Question about Samsung DV218AG Gas Dryer
Definitely get your vacuum cleaner hose and a brush into the area of the pilot light and the thermocouple as a little dust in this area is the most common cause of your problem. J.

You should check igniter first when the dryer is started. It should glow red hot to ignite the gas. The issue is with the gas valve coils if the igniter glows red hot but no gas is ignited; replace both coils. On the other hand if the igniter fails to glow red hot, check the continuity of the thermal fuse and/or cycling thermostat on the blower housing and the high-limit thermostat on the burner assembly. You can bypass all of them then start the dryer. The burner should fire up then stop the dryer and un-bypass each of them one a time then restart the dryer. In this manner, you will be able to find the culprit. Replace it and the dryer should start firing up and working properly. Do not use the dryer with the previously mentioned components permanently bypassed to avoid fire hazards.
