Gas dryer does not light.
« on: April 07, 2012, 06:45:06 PM »
Have a issue with my Maytag dryer model number mgdc400vw0. The ignitor glows for only a short time 10-15 sec goes out. Gas does not light. Do I need to replace the ignitor?

It's most likely the two coils on top of gas valve assembly....they are black in color and are sold as a pair.
