When you start the dryer , after a few seconds do you hear a distinct click sound from inside the bottom of the dryer at the burner assembly? If you do not, you most likely have a bad thermal fuse, part# 3392519 or 3390719, depending on your dryer. Its the same fuse just different shape, both will work. This is most likely your problem. If you do hear a click, you may have a bad ignitor. Best way to test is to check for 120 at the ignitor. If you have anymore questions or need parts feel free to ask in my forum at www.washermd.com, thanks, Dave

Why won't my inglis dryer heat up


if electric? check ur thermal shut off and thermistor with a multimeter. does it run at all? if it does it wont be thermal shut off but may be ur heating element? is it gas or electric? Gas? 1. may need to check ur coils which regulate the flow of gas, ? 2. CHECK Igniter which ignites the flame, or 3. CHECK THE glow bar. there are also thermostats on the heating eleemt you will want to check with a multimeter. the thermal cutoff, the hi-lo thermostat and the element itself.

Dryer not drying


It could be the heating element but do not assume it is until you check it. If the element is fine the limits on the heater housing might be tripped and if that is the case the vent needs to be checked for blockage. Birdnest, snow, cobwebs, and such can cause limits to trip. On an electric model the fuse mounted on the blower kills the motor but on a gas model the fuse kills power to the gas valve. I have a full page of dryer repair info and service manual HERE

Why is my inglis dryer not drying?


You must have a gas dryer. Assuming it is a gas dryer, the ignitor is working because she glows. the flame sensor is also working because the ignitor shuts down. The only other thing in the assembly is the solenoids which tend to work properly but short and die when warm, then when cool will work some more much later. very difficult to diagnose. Replace the solenoids and party on Amigo.

I have an Amana Dryer Model # LGD20AW and when the dryer is first turned on the glow plug will heat up and ignite the gas but as the dry cycle continues the glow plug will heat up but no flame will ignite...


The glow coil or glow bar heats up and a sensor on the side reacts to the heat and then sends a signal to a gas valve.(solenoid valve) When the gas doesn't ignite when the coil is glowing... here are some reasons. 1. The sensor on the side of the burner assembly isn't working or sending power to the valve. 2. The valve is getting power but not opening. 3. The ignitor is not glowing hot enough to activate the flame sensor. Usually it is the sensor or the igniter not the valve.

We have a commercial inglis gas dryer..under door is a model number JO-71200 when i search for it says no match.dryer quit about a week ago we replaced a few rollers then we noticed clothes weren't...


Well I'm not familiar with gas delivery systems on dryers, but I can tell you how they work on home heating boilers and I'm sure they are very similar. There are two type, standing pilot (which you have) and spark ignition. Spark ignition uses two electrodes with an electric spark to ignite the gas. Now your situation your dryer may have what is called a thermocouple which is like a little metal cylinder connected to a wire. When the flame is lit it heats that thermocouple which produces a voltage. That voltage keeps your gas valve open to keep the pilot light lit. If your pilot light is lit then the thermocouple is not bad. You need to check your circuit and see where the break is. Its true it could be a thermostat. To check a thermostat you need to take it off the dryer and you can either use a lighter or put it in boiling water till you hear is pop or open up. If you hear it pop twice then it is good (you'll hear it pop once when it heats up and once when it cools down). There is a circuit that keeps that gas valve open, and after 10 seconds something is opening that gas valve circuit, you need to see what all is connected to it, then you will solve your problem.

Replace these solenoids on the gas valve. Feel them if you can. They get hot and quit.d910ca8.jpg

Inglis gas dryer heat loss


It sounds like you have an intermittent gas valve. The ignitor is calling for heat however the gas valve doesnt want to open.

Make sure you turn off the gas and unplug before replacing.

Check for leaks after you reassemble.
