Maytag Dryer LDG8704AAE IGNITER PROBLEM

6 posts in this topic

Igniter went out a week ago. Purchased a new one and installed it (did not touch the igniter on installation). Dryer worked for 4 days and now igniter is burned out again. Need help troubleshooting. Thanks.

Are you getting 120v to the ignitor?

Yes. The igniter is actually burned out (cracked). Is there something that may fail that might cause the igniter to stay on even after ignition? I don't ever remember seeing it go off after it ignited the gas.

The  igniter has to shut off in a gas dryer to get ignition, if the igniter stayed on you would have never gotten the gas valve to open and get heat.  It has to cycle off on the flame sensor for the gas valve to open. Have the place you bought the igniter replace it, is under warranty, might have been damaged when you bought it?

Thanks for all the help. Put a new igniter in on the 7th and it is still working. The guy I bought the igniter from sold me the second one at his cost. Better than nothing. Well,thanks again for all your help.
