appliance Doc :

Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

JACUSTOMER-wch21zlm- :

Cool.

appliance Doc :

no, you do not need to light a pilot light. The igniter inside the dryer should start to glow when you turn your dryer on, it's all self ignition. You shouldn't have to do anything

JACUSTOMER-wch21zlm- :

What about the washer?

appliance Doc :

the washer has nothing to do with gas at all. The washer is strictly run off 120 volts. It may be a stacked dryer on top of the washer, but the gas only goes to the dryer.

JACUSTOMER-wch21zlm- :

Awesome. It's running now. I feel dumb. 35 bucks to find out I hadn't plugged the damn thing in.

appliance Doc :

it happens to the best of us sometimes unfortunately, but I wish you the best of luck.
