Will start, clothes will tumble but will not heat up to dry the clothes


Run it with the vent off if you feel some heat for the first minute and the airflow is strong you best bet is to change the valve coils.The vent is not a part in the dryer the vent is was connects to the back of the dryer pull the vent off and run the dryer to test.
The coils are on the top of the gas valve.

Gas dryer with no heat: The parts that I have pointed out with the arrows are the parts that you will need to check with an ohm meter if the dryer is not heating. First check and see if you have 110 volts coming to the gas valve at this type of a connector. If you have voltage, then unplug the dryer and check the parts I have pointed to. Some dryers have 3 coils instead of the 2 shown here. If you do not have voltage coming to the burner, then you will need to check the timer contacts that feed the gas burner, hi limit thermostat, operating thermostats, the safety switch on the motor, and any other point that you can see on your wiring diagram picture that feeds voltage to the burner. The coils on the gas valve are very bad for working once or twice and then quitting. If you find a open circuit on one of the gas coils, replace them all = less problems later on. If the glow coil does not work ( get red ), check it with a ohm meter for continuity. The next thing to check if the glow coil does not come on would be the radiant sensor. Inspect the igniter for small burnt spot on dark gray or black part of igniter or check for 110 volts to igniter wire plug when dryer should be calling for heat. Sometimes the ( older style ) igniter is separate from the holder and the holder can no longer hold the igniter tight enough and the two parts burn/arcwhere they touch each other = new igniter and holder ( some manufactures have new kits to replace these older style parts ).
Does the igniter get red and stay red, or does it get red, you hear a click and it goes off, then a minute later its gets red again?....if so you possibly have a bad set of coil valves. If the igniter gets red and stays red constantly then its the flame switch that is bad and maybe welded closed.

Check out, this possibilities.This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Our dryer is turning but no heat what is the first to go on dryers model#pyg2300aww thanks


first,check and see if the ignitor glows,if not it probably is burned out,then if it glows,but wont start check the flame sensor eye for dirt so it cant sense the flame,if this isnt the problem,then check the gas valve coils on the gas valve,they get weak and cant keep the valve open to supply gas to the dryer

Coil replacement


I'm not an expert but assuming you ordered the coils for your dryer your dryer must have them. I just finshed repairing my kenmore gas dryer after about 10 minutes the gas would shut off. This is becasue the coils that are on top of the gas line before the ignigter were defective. The coils control the gas valve and when my dryer got hot the coil being defective would close the valve. There are 2 coils a 2 prong and a 3 prong. Remove the front panel to gain access to the bottom of the dryer from there you will see your coils about as round as a quarter and 10 or so high. unscrew the screws holding down the retainer and undue the electrical clip. reverse for the install. good luck!

I need access to gas valve in my Maytag mdg5500aww dryer


When I posted the question, I had not removed the front of the dryer. I thought the gas burner etc. had to be accessed from the back. As soon as I removed the front of the dryer I realized it was all up front and accessable. Conversion was straight forward from that point.

How do i access the gas coils on my roper dryer?


http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/model-display.php This is a good site for parts and help. You can see the screws #2 holding the front on. Release the spring clips #20 with a putty knife in the gap on the front.

The burner in the dryer will not stay on.


Most common cause is poor airflow. Make sure your ductwork is clear, and that you have good strong airflow at the exhaust point outside.
If that doesn't help, it may be the gas coils that need replaced....not a terribly expensive part, you can usually get the pair of coils together.
