Common cause for dryer taking to long to dry, (vent related issue) so long as thats be rectified, the next issue would be to look into replacing the coils atop the burner vale, part number 279834, retail for about $20, easy enough to change. although they appear to open the gas valve initially, after running for 30 min or so they overheat and no longer open the valve, extending dry time.

Clothes not dry when dryer shuts off


First turn off your breakers, then back on. Next check the wiring at the back of the dryer. You could have wires burned in two. You may next have an element that is burned out. Your relay switch underneath the top could be bad. To check it , bypass it by taping the two wires coming off it together. If it works, then you will know it is the relay .

Dryer burner burns for a short time and gose out then relites. cloths don't get dry


Might be a loose blower wheel or clogged filter housing causing an air restriction. Check you outside vent and pipe for restrictions.

MOD. MDG6200AWW SER.# 31658508YW WILL NOT DRY CLOTHES. TORE DRYER APART AND CLEANED. BURNER COMES ON FOR A FEW SECONDS THEN SHUTS OFF.


Hello, This problem is going to be your safety valve coils...basically they get old and over time of heating then cooling develop a short when they heat up...It may appear the gas lights to start but then goes out until the safety valve coils cool back down. Here is a picture of a set of coils Yours may differ but it's the same concept. You will find them mounted to the saftey valve at the rear of the igniter. 57d5263.jpg This should solve your problem. Hope this helps, Please feel free to comment again if you have any further questions or concerns. Good Luck! Mike

Replace both coils on the burner valve . After heating up , they will not open to let gas thru again until cooled down for a short period of time . With no heat , timer will not cut off unless set for timed dry .

Ignites then burner shuts down then rignites over and over wont dry


Check your connecting exhaust vent for a blockage.
Remove the vent and run a 45 minute timed dry load and see if it works correctly.
Report back.

Whirlpool dryer model LER7646EQ1


Thats what it's supposed to do hopefully the clothes are coming out dry. The dryer has both thermal sesors and fuses that tell the dryer when to heat up and when to cool down. So yes the heating element will come on and go off multiple times in a cycle.

LG Gas dryer doesn't dry clothes in one cycle


Have you checked your outside vent while it was running to see if the dryer was venting 100%. If your clothes are hot and humid I would say clean your vent pipe has a blockage and needs to be cleaned out. Also as far as the burning smell you could take the front off (unplug first) the dryer of by removing 4 screws one above and one below the latch and two at the bottom and there are two clips one at the top left and right push in with a puddy knife and lift the top up a couple inches and lift the front up off the bottom holders. Then you will have access to vacuuming the lint that is floating around the burner.

Dryer is gas model dg212 flame come on but will not stay on long enough to dry clothes


if burner lights but fails to relight after several shut offs suspect burners solenoids change both they come in a kit ..once the solenoids get hot they will sometimes open electrically and fail to reenergize after cool down they will open gas valve and alow burner to reignite..also be sure vent to outside to clean and vent behind dryer is not flattened or kinked has know flame to not be properly burning due to exhaust problems and flame sensor would shut burner down
