Question about Dryers
Pilot light glows brightly everytime it needs to but main burning does not alway start. Model #LDG7500AAW
SOURCE: I have a whirlpool gas
problem is definitely the gas
valve solenoid coils sitting on top of the gas valve assembly. There are
two of them, one with three prongs and the the has two, and held by a
bracket. They must be working fine when cool but eventually fail when
get hot. Simply replace the coils and the dryer should start heating.
Just make sure to disconnect power to the dryer before attempting any
Pull the lint filter out and remove the screws near the opening.
Insert a putty knife blade or similar tool between the top panel and the front panel to release the clips securing the top panel to the top of the front panel on both sides as shown then rotate the top panel up to the rear of the dryer.
Disconnect the door switch wire harness then remove the front panel screws and lift the panel up and off the cabinet.
You now have access and view of the burner assembly where the gas valve coils are located.
Disconnect the wires from the coils and remove the screws from the bracket then lift the coils out. Slide the new coils in then secure it with the bracket and reconnect the wire harnesses.
Reinstall the front panel from the bottom then up and secure it to the cabinet. Rotate the top panel down back into position then push it against the top of the front panel until the securing clips engage and snap into place.
