I was wondering if...

I was wondering if my Maytag gas dryer needed to get a pilot light turned on or is just turning on the gas and dryer is all I need to do

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Maytag is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

MGD55770TQ0

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes, I just installed it.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

That’s it I wasn’t sure if there were any additional actions I had to take aside from hooking up the gas and electric sockey
