Maytag MDG2500BWW gas dryer not lighting off

5 posts in this topic

My Maytag 2500 gas dryer isn't lighting off. Timer and drum work okay. I have the front off and have no idea what to check first. If I push the button in and run the dryer, the igniter doesn't heat up if that helps at all. I cleaned the glass window in the burner area- but that didn't do anything.

Help!

the Ignitor doesn't glow at all ?

It may be a bad (broken) Ignitor (should read about 400 OHMs depending on ambient temperature)

It may be a bad Temperature Switch / settings

UNNNNNHHHHHH...................... take the access plate off, the one under the control console, its attached by 2 white screws in the front. Then start that mug up. Look into the tube where the burner goes into. Report back what you see.

If that igniters not glowing at all. I would check for continuity on the igniter circuit. If open, check the thermal fuse in the back.

bad Thermal Fuse would also stop the Drum Motor on this model
