Hi.

Please provide the complete model number and more detailed description of the problem.
Does the ignitor glows on/off?

I'm not home so I don't have the model number but the igniter glows the first time I run it and everything works than when I try doing a second load the igniter doesn't glow... I've taken apart the dryer three times and every time it's done that

Hi.

Most likely the problem is The flame sensor

Part number: 338906

Part number: 338906


Check the continuity of the sensor. It should be closed when the dryer is at room temperature and open at 1500F.

Here are the breakdown diagrams and Bulkhead parts for Maytag HGD4300TQ0 - AppliancePartsPros.com

Hi.

Check the flame sensor when ever the ignitor fails to glow.
Did the burner ignite right after you checked the sensor?
