Burner on dryer comes on then shuts off and will not relight


This is only a guess based on experience: the unit may have a thermal sensor for a pilot light much like old gas wall heaters, it if bad will not allow the gas on or turn it off if pilot light goes out.

If its there it should be right at the pilot light.

Maytag gas dryer not heating


First make sure you have gas, then open lower section of this dryer you shoul see screws you will see a place to relight the pilot , if you smell gas before doing anything then stop your repair, see if the pilot is lit then push the red button and hold it relight pilot hold this button for a few min's after it relights, if it dosent relight check power goign to gas valve near pilot . Gas units have very little problems you may have just lost gas pressure and need to relight it , let me no ! what you see and we wuill go from there

The gas had been turned off. how do I relight the pilot?


Shut gas valve off and let it air out. You can see the pilot with the little rod on it. Turn valve to pilot position and light a lighter to light the pilot. Hold the valve for a minute. If it stays lit, then turn valve fully to the ON position.

I am assuming that it is a gas dryer even though it shows it is an electric. This is a good website

Local gas company shut the gas off to my neighborhood and now that it is back on I do not know how to relight my gas dryer. It is a Crosley and suppose to self igniting.


Hi,
There probably is air in the line and it will take a long time to bled the air out with just the dryer...
Do you have other gas appliances?
Are they working?
Can you bleed the line at the back of the dryer?
Then just keep trying till it lights...

How do I relight the pilot light?


Hi,
There is no pilot light on many of the dryers of today. They light with a hot surface ignitor.
Here is a tip that I wrote about dryers and no heat on gas dryers...

Dryer lights for 5 min shuts off and wont relight.Can see glow when it trying to light.


That would be the holding coils....two little round solenoids down by the gas valve....you would need your model number to get the right coils
