    hi . Did you clean the lint screen in the dryer.you see if the air going out of the dryer is restricted . The flame will heat a hi limit thermostat causing the flame to keep cutting of . if that's all clean then you could have a faulty hi limit thermostat. or bad coils on the gas valve . remove the vent from dryer and try again without the vent thanks

Ge gas dryer heats but doesnt dry


if the flame is lighting you have lint blocking the air flow either in the dryer or in the vent line,also if you have a flame for the first 10 to 20 minutes and then the flame doesn't light you have bad gas coils located on top of the gas valve,when the coils are bad they can work for the first 10 to 20 minutes until the coils get hot and then they fail and you'll see the ignitor glowing orange but no flame,bad gas coils.then when the coils cool down they can work again.hope this helps.you can try removing the vent line from the back of the dryer and see if the flame stays on,if lint is blocking the air from blowing out the flame won't stay lit long enough to dry the clothes.

My amana gas dryer seems to be taking longer then normal to dry clothes. I've always used the moisture sensor and one day I noticed it had been running for 10 hours (although the clothes were dry and...


Hi,

If your dryer is not drying like it once did or if you just have nottaken the time to give yourself a clean dryer in a long time then youneed to do that. At least once a year the dryer cleaning should takeplace. Lint build up in the dryer duct is one of the main causesfor your dryer to fail.

I have a Neptune Gas Dryer MDG300AW and the flame goes out.


Well, first of all, the flame is not supposed to be continuous... it cycles on and off during the dry cycle because it staying on would incinerate your clothing. However, there are magnetic coils that do often go bad and cause the valve to stop opening after the beginning of the cycle... so you get a flame in the beginning, but if you were to sit there for 5 minutes with the dryer running, you would find that the flame stopped lighting completely.

They are pretty easy to replace... you will have to unscrew the little plastic pieces from the inside edge of the door, and unscrew the hinges and remove the door, then pull the front panel off (pull at the top).

Of course... UNPLUG before opening any appliance.

here's a picture of what you are looking for... they are completely outside the gas line, so changing them is very simple and doesn't require any handling of the gas. they are held on with a small metal plate.

Clothes won't dry, works sometime.


Either a bad flame sensor or bad coils on the gas valve assembly.

Clothes not drying properly


Consider a blocked air flow/vent problem or bad gas valve selonoids. Important to check outside vent door if present to make sure it is opening all the way. If not the dryer goes off on thermal overload. If vent is clear consider selonoids located on top of gas valve held in place with 2 philip head screws. One has a two prong electrical plug and the other has a three. Last check Lp tank for gas. Thank you
