    Look at the tip and follow hoe to buy online... then compare the different appliance parts sites...
    then when you enter the model number you will get the list of parts...pick the ignitor and order it... it will fit but will probably be a generic part for your unit...

    That's great!!!! I wish I had a parts store close to me... but living in the sticks of PA. I would have to travel hours...
    Also you know that it isn't going to get broken in shipment...took me three tries to get an ignitor one time....!!!

My Samsung gas dryer displays error code u100. what is the meaning?

check igniter, flame sensor and gas valve and coils? if no gas from valve you will have no flame ignition. hence no heat, bad igniter will not ignite flame either, bad sensor will not detect flame hence no signal to ignite check all with multi meter

Dryer doesn't get hot enough to dry clothes


Thanks for using FixYa. The first thing that should be checked is the Thermal fuse which is mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover. If this fuse goes bad the dryer will not heat and you’ll have to replace it as it cannot be repaired. If this I fine then you’ll need to check the thermostat, igniter and coils. Also as its only 3 months old so it is recommended to use the warranty to avoid any further issues. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

How to lite a gas dryer

Modern gas dryers use electric igniters. If the dryer is plugged in and does not ignite the igniter could be cracked or broken or you could have a bad thermal fuse.

Gas dryer heat is intermediate

does the igniter glow white or orange? if it is orange you need to replace it. has to be white hot to ignite. if the igniter is white it could be the coils not opening the gas valve all the time - an intermittent problem.

the most common problem is the thermostat if its bad the dryer thinks its overheated you can us ally jump them however its not recommended because of safety issues

Maytag Neptune MDG 5500 AWQ heats sporatically

your dryer has a safety feature that it will not run or heat when the door is opened. It is so no gas fumes are exhauseted into your home. Once the safety is engaged, It will not allow the dryer to restart for a short while. It should clear itself after only a few minutes. Hope this helps, good luck.
