It's been many, many years since dryers had pilot lights. Look for an igniter that may have gone out. It should be behind a service door.

The only simple answer to this question is the flame is not working. Then the question is why not? That's when it gets complicated. In the old days there was a pilot that stayed on to ignite the flame.Today the pilot is electronic and needs a signal to operate.So is that pilot working...is it getting the signal to work? Suppose that it is then your question is about the gas. Is it present? Turned on maybe. Say that it is. Well there is a fail safe valve that turns on only if it senses the presence of the pilot.That valve also has to have a signal present to turn on.That's pretty much it. No simple answer to a broad question.

Sounds like you have a bad timer

Roper RGX4634KQ... | Answered on Mar 24, 2014

If it gets hot or warm in the drum but the clothes do not dry---the most common cause is a blockage between the drum, lint tube in the unit to the vent that flows the air to the exhaust outside.

If the drum gets much hotter than the air exiting the vent----clean all the from the drum to OUTSIDE.

Note: if there is not proper airflow and a lint build up exists there is the potential for a fire---Hundreds of fires are reported each year cause by this kind of trouble.

If the drum does not get hot inside you may have a bad igniter that heats the air (fires the burner uo inside the unit.)

Hi jfinto1971


Note: This method works for most front loading machines.
If you have to check/replace/repair your drum motor,drum seals,belt,rollers, etc.
If replacing drum seals be sure to use a good grade of weather proof cement to hold the seal/s in place, some seals are furnished with the cement to glue it in place.
Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch,start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer if necessary. Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch or other electrical connections.
Remove the lint filter and the two screws that hold the filter housing to the top of the dryer lid.
Then remove the top of the dryer by inserting a screwdriver between the top and frame on each side of the dryer to pop the lid up from the retaining clips.
Note: Some of the tops tilt backwards on a type of hinge and do not have to be removed completly.
Remove the front of the machine by disconnecting the door switch and removing the two screws located on either side of the dryer frame.
Move the door and front of machine forward to remove.
This will expose the belt,idler bracket and drum, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley. Pay attention to the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt and drum.
Sometimes the belt will slip off of the idler arm or motor causing the drum not to turn.
Note:The way the belt goes back on is, as the belt comes off the drum has to be doubled (pushed together to form a loop) and goes under the idler pulley then to the motor pulley.
Here is a link to see a picture of your belt routing in case the belt is broken when you open your dryer:

While you have the drum out, I would recommend that you remove and lubricate the drum rollers.
And also clean the shafts of the rollers as they will collect hair,dust,etc and cause problems and then lubricate the shafts and rollers with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil or a vasoline type of lubricant. This will save you a problem later with the rollers getting dry and making a squeeling noise, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a thumping type noise.
You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.

Hello Amy,
With the igniter coming on and then going off, yet their is no heat to the dryer the problem is going to be bad coils for the gas valve that need to be replaced.
