Maytag dryer does not always heat

(1/3) > >>

hookcapn:
Our Maytag dryer will fire up initially but when cycling on and off during drying, the flame does not light.
This was a problem about 8 months ago but seemed to correct itself. The problem just recurred.
Could not see model# in manual section.

Any clues or tests?

Model LDG8410AAW

BrntToast:
when you say it does not always light, is the ignitor still glowing? yet the burner does not ignite?

if that is the case you need to change the gas valves

hookcapn:
What is the degree of difficulty in replacing these valves?
Does it get done through the small door or does the front need to come off?
Does repair manual address replacement procedure?

JWWebster:
solenoid coils need replacement

AJ:
I attached the part of the manual that is related to the gas.
