The Gas company checked my dryer and says that there is a slow leak
I have a Maytag Gas dryer model # PYGT244AWW - gas valve #31001485
"Hello, In my opinion, I would replace the whole valve assembly for about $177.16
You could maybe find it cheaper through Ebay or Amazon. I wouldn’t even consider taking it apart due to the fact of it has to be perfectly sealed, and you don’t want your house to blow up or catch fire due to leaking gas. It’s not worth the risk!
The gas valve at repairclinic.com can be purchased here (includes 2 new solenoids);
