Question about Maytag Neptune MDG9700A Gas Dryer
If the flame sensor is not returning a good signal, the gas valve is shut off as a safety measure. I surmise that in this situation, the igniter is programmed to fire for a time to flare off any accumulated gas from the initial attempt to fire up the burner.
Check for the following: adequate combustion air supply (make sure inlet vents are clear), proper exhaust venting, flame sensor properly positioned and not cracked or otherwise broken, burner holes are clean and not caked over with combustion deposits (if the flame is uneven and weak right where the flame sensor is located, it will be treated as a failed ignition).
In the worst case, the gas valve is defective and unable to detect the flame signal. It's also possible that a thermostat is sending an overheat signal, but that doesn't account for the igniter sparking a second time after the burner shuts off.
