    What is your model number (just inside the dryer door). For most of them, you unplug the dryer, open the door. Take out the two screws from the hinges and the 2 screws straight across from them. This lets your front panel come down and typically you can reach the burner assembly on the lower right hand side once the front panel is off. The ignitor will be the white ceramic peice on there.

The dryer spins but the burner does not always ignite.


Hi the most likely cause for this is a weak or failing ignitor. Remove the bottom front panel and observe with dryer running. If ignitor does not glow test it for 120vac if you have 120vac replace ignitor. If it glows but does not ignite the you ignitor is weak replace it.

I replaced the igniter and thermal fuse and dryer


The thermal fuse should only be replaced if the dryer will not start
If it starts the thermal fuse is good.
If you touched the ignitor with your fingers it may have blown out.
Open the dryer and check for voltage to the ignitor through the ignitor wires while the dryer is on.
If you have no voltage check the hi-limit thermostat for continuity as well as the operating thermostat.
Check the flame sensor for continuity while it is cold.
If you have power to the ignitor place a clamp on amp meter on one ignitor wire and turn the dryer on.
If you read 3 amps or less the ignitor is bad.
If it reads the amps or more the gas valve coils are bad.

Maytag MCG8000AWW gas dryer no heat


The ignitor may be bad you can chek to see if there is 110volts when the dryer is allin by unplugging the wire to the ignitor and putting using a multimeter to chek for voltage at the wires. If there is power to the ignitor and the ignitor is not glowing up then the ignitor is probably bad replace the ignitor.

Not heating up Gas Dryer


Modern gas dryers do not have a pilot light. They have an electronic ignitor (glow or spark). A glow ignitor turns on several seconds before the gas turns on and should get orange hot. A spark ignitor should make a clicking or buzzing noise.

Most likely the ignitor is bad but you can check it fairly easily to make certain. The best instructions I have found are at

http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/dryer/gdryer/check/ignitor.php

If it is the ignitor it can be replaced with a few hand tools. Remove the bad ignitor. Write down the make, model, and serial # of your dryer. Call your local appliance parts store to see if they have one it stock before driving over there.

Dryer doesnt blow hot air.


I find that quite often the ignitor is out of alignment or the glass window is covered with lint.
a gas dryer blows air through a burner assembly to heat the air. The burner assembly consists essentially of a gas valve, ignitor and a flame sensor. If any part of the burner assembly malfunctions, the result will be low or no heat and slow drying of the clothes.
There are two common styles of ignitors, glow ignitors and spark ignitors. The ignitor ignites the gas either by heating up and glowing, or by sparking. If the ignitor fails, the dryer will not heat.

The easiest way to check the ignitor is to observe it. Remove the small access panel in front, select a high temperature setting and start the dryer. Watch the burner assembly, shortly after starting the dryer the ignitor should begin to glow or spark. If you see it glow or spark, then the ignitor is working.

Gas dryer ignitor not activating


You have to use a voltmeter to test the circuit. You must connect a voltmeter to the leads that go to the ignitor, and then start the dryer. If the ignitor is getting 120 volts, but not lighting, then you need a new ignitor.

If you do not feel comfortable doing this test, you could simply replace the ignitor and hope its the problem
