    Question Maytag gas dryer

    My Maytag gas dryer model# MGD5770TQ0 will not heat. I want to check the thermostat and gas valve, but cannot figure out how to get to them. There are no screws at the bottom front to take off. Am I supposed to take off the back or the front? Thanks!

    Operating and safety thermostats are at the back...gas valve, ignitor are at the front...

    My Maytag gas dryer will not heat
    Problem - Gas flame comes on first few times then quits and igniter keeps cycling on and off but never lets the gas go.

    Answer ( most common ) - Replace the coils on the Gas Valve.

    Problem - No flame, no igniter glowing at all.

    Answer ( most common ) - Inspect igniter for small burnt spot on dark gray or black part of igniter or check for 110 volts to igniter when dryer should be calling for heat.
