First thing to do is figure out if their was a problem with the exhaust. You gotta check the vent pipe and the filter housing for excessive lint buildup. Clean all that up then check the duct fuse to see if it is bad. the dryer will run with the fuse blown on most gas fueled dryers.
If all them safetys is good then their must be a probo with one or more of the components of the gas assembly itself. The first thing you check is the flame sensor. If it is open (dead) then the ignitor won't glow. If that turns out to be ok then I next check the ignitor. If it is bad then replace it of course. NOTE: if the dryer works some times and then sometimes not then those pesky gas valve solenoids are intermittant. Sort of like the New Orleans Saints, they work half the time if you is lucky. Replace them. Read more

There is no pilot light on that model. It uses a glowbar style igniter. It could be several things causing no heat. Here is a troubleshooting video that should help http://appliancehelponline.com/gdryertroublevideo.html

The electric strike on my cook top wont stop striking even after the pilot lights or the gas is shut off. I have to unplug it to stop.


The problem is in the pilot ignitor Located under top, unplug the unit before replacing it. Write down all of the information ,mode, serial, and product number and name of stove. If you can get a part number, this would be very helpful. Take this to a local appliance parts house and they can help you.

You might have a hot surface ignitor that if broken can fall off and be somewhat difficult to locate by sight having never replaced one before.
Look at the new parts base as thats all you may have showing.
The ignitor regarless of type is very close to the gas manifold temination
going into the combustion compartment.
Replacing the new ignitor BE CAREFUL not to touch or bump the ignitors surface or it may fry out before you leave! they break easily!
I would use magnetic nutdrivers, its either 1/4 or 5/16 inch on most everything, very handy for furnace and AC work too

There is no pilot too light, if it's not heating either you have a bad ignitor or coils.

Maytag Dryer Tstat wiring


I believe that this part is a thermostat. If im not mistaken, it shouldnt matter which wire goes on which prong. Think this is a reversable thermostat. It should have just 2 prongs correct? Jim
