How to Light Pilot on Gas Dryer?

To light a pilot on a gas dryer, first turn off the gas as it will still be escaping from the pilot light. Open the access panel for the pilot light and switch it to the off position. Turn on the gas and then turn the switch on. Ignite the pilot light with a stove lighter. If the flame is not constant or is too high, contact a repairman.
