There is a flame sensor that senses when the ignitor is hot enough to light the gas. If the flame sensor is bad the gas valve won't open. It also might be the valve itself. There are 2 coils that must open for the gas to get through the valve. If one of the coils is bad the valve won't open.

My mdg308daww spins, the heat igniter, glows for about 5-10 seconds and then stops after about a minute it glows again. The igniter was tested ok, and the coils were replaced still the same problem....


Assuming the gas supply valve is turned on, I would make sure the gas valve orifice in your dryer isn't plugged up. If its not that leaves your gas valve not letting the gas in. Very rare though.

I have a Maytag LDG 4000 gas dryer with electronic ignition. The igniter glows, but does not ignite the gas. I can not smell any gas, so I'm assuming a valve of some sort, internal to the dryer, is not...


Igniter glows - No gas ignition. If the igniter heats
up but the main burner flame is not ignited, remove
power and using an ohmmeter, check the following:
• Open secondary coil
• Open holding coil
• Open wire harness
• Stuck flame sensor (Stuck closed)
Most likely bad gas valve coils.

Smelled mild gas odor after moving dryer. Replaced gas line connection. Still smell gas. Tried to tighten gas line have strong gas odor after running dryer. Does not seem to be heating


The gas valve should not be opening unless the glow igniter glows and sends a signal to the gas valve. I suspect a small leak in either the gas pipe or at the gas valve. You will have to get to the gas valve to perform a leak test. While the dryer is open, replace the igniter.

Dryer worked well until recently. Igniter glows


I would take a look at the gas coil solenoids. The gas coils are right above the gas valves. They are black electrical coils. When energized, the coils open the gas valves. If one or more of the coils is defective (bad solenoids), then the gas valves won't open and the gas cannot ignite. Because it's difficult to test the coils, it is best to replace both (all) of them at the same time. Sure hope this helped and best wishes.

Yes, that is most likely the problem. Once the glow bar igniter glows so hot, the switch opens & drops power to the igniter.(The radiant sensor has continuity while cold & open when a flame is present.) At the same time, by opening it redirects power to the valve coils allowing them to open & gas flow to the burner assembly. The dying glow of the igniter fires the gas. However, if your igniter glows, the radiant sensor is good. In this case, you'd need to replace the gas valve solenoids.

There should be a gas igniter, inside of the burner chamber, that will glow bright red before the gas will be allowed to flow. If the dryer model that you have has a flap on the front you will be able to observe this otherwise you will have to remove the front of your machine to check it. If you post back with your machine model number I will be able to assist you further.
