The problem you are describing is usually associated with a bad gas valve coil. The dryer runs normally until it gets hot, then starts making a strange clicking noise. After it cools down, the dryer runs normally again. The gas valve coils (there are two of them) usually run about $20 a piece. I recommend replacing both of them at the same time just to be sure. I hope this helps.

I would like to thank the ones who responded to giving me a 'hand' in repairing my dryer. I did like you said & changed out the coils & now the dryer is working like it should.

If the ignitor is infact getting hot enough the next step is for the coils to open the valve to release the gas. Most of the time the ignitor is not drawing the proper amperage to open the coils. One or more of the following parts would be bad.

coil # 5303931775 $40.00 shipped to you
