Question about Dryers
My gas dryer is no longer putting out hot air. is there an easy solution and where do I troubleshoot first. My Maytag dryer tumbles, but there's no heat. In the past, I noticed a flame in a door towards the bottom of my dryer. Well, the flame is no longer there. I'm not sure how old it is, because it came with the house when I bought it a year ago. It's probably really old. How would I relight the pilot light on it? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks....
If you have a pilot light (small flame) you can try to re-light it by turning the knob on the gas valve to the pilot position and pushing the knob down while lighting the pilot, you may have to hold the knob down for up to 30 seconds before releasing it. The pilot should stay lit and then turn the knob to the on position. If the pilot will not stay lit or the main burner will not light it could be the gas valve or the temperature sensor.
