Maytag Neptune gas dryer MD5500 blows cold air

3 posts in this topic

for last two weeks our dryer only cycles cold air.  i remove the front panel (reattach the door) and the ignitors seems to initiate by glowing bright orange and gas heats up for the first cycle of the hot and cold cycle.  Subsequent heating of the ignitor does not ignite the gas. The ignitor glows bright orange each time but does not spark the gas to heat.  i do not smell gas, so i assume it is not allowing gas to flow. All connections good and clean of dryer lint.  exhaust vent is clean and clear thru external vent hose.
