Gas dryer doesn't heat properly


You need to replace the "flame sensor" on the dryer. If this is faulty, it will give you problems like you described. Here is the part to order.

Igniter comes on will not let the gas in. The gas burner does not come on Maytag model dg882s


Hello,
Your have one of two problem causing the gas to not come on on your dryer.
1) the flame sensor is bad...if the igniter comes on and stays on and doesn't go off...usually within 1 minute the flame sensor isn't working as its supposed to
2) the coils on the gas valve could be the problem...if the igniter does indeed go off within 1 minutes and as soon as the igniter goes off if their is no flame the coils on the gas valve is what would need to be replaced
here is what each part looks like

The dryer heats up at first but the burner won't ignite after it cycles off. The ignitor comes on but no flame. I changed the rear thermostat on the vent housing but that did not resolve the problem.


you have bad gas coils.when they are starting to die the dryer will run normally for the first 10 to 30 minutes and then no flame,the coils work fine until they heat up then nothing.when they cool down you'll have a flame again.easy fix,the coils are on top of the gas valve,take out the two phillips screws,remove the metal cover and change out the coils,that's it part number 279834.let me know how you make out

Whirlpool gas dryer Model #WGD5530SQ0 not heating properly


If your dryer heats when you first turn it on and after a few minutes it does'nt. check the ignitor to see if it is glowing. It should glow bright then you will hear a click and the burner will light. If the ignitor glows bright but you hear a click but no flame and if you watch this for several minutes and this process continues of glow then glow goes out no flame, then you have a bad burner coil. There are 2 black solenoids sitting on top of gas valve. One of them is shorting out after it warms up. Replace both solenoids. You can usually get them as a kit from parts store.

Dryer not drying


First thing to check is the vent. Make sure you have sufficient air flow to the outside. If you are not sure if you have the proper rate of flow, disconnect the vent from the dryer, turn dryer on and see if burner stays on longer. Do this with a couple of damp, spun-dry towels inside the drum. If the burner short cycles again, you need to replace the coils on top of the burner assembly. These are the two black round coils.

Sears kenmore gas dryer 417.92052101does not stay lit.


Watch the burner assembly, shortly after starting the dryer the ignitor should begin to glow. If it glows for several seconds (up to 15 seconds) and then goes out, then the problem is probably the solenoids (coils). If the ignitor glows and stays on, then the problem is usually the flame sensor.

Check for a restricted vent. Clean vent and check for kinks. Make sure lint screen is clean. If you do-not have good airflow due to a restriction, the burner will not stay on. It's a safety thing.
