First, check to see if there is strong air flow out the house at the exterior dryer vent. It is very important to have good air flow for gas dryers. Second, if you do have good air flow and you do get ignition but the burner shuts down quickly and won't relight, the most likely cause is the coils on the gas valve. They heat up when current passes through them and can open up electrically. When they cool down, the process can repeat. The coils for LG gas valves are not available as separate parts. You have to order a complete gas valve, but you can then take the coils off the new valve and swap them out onto the original valve so you don't have to change out the entire valve. If you need instructions on how to get at the gas valve, let me know (with your model number).

Remember, check your air flow first !
Please rate this solution once you have completed your repair. Thanks.

Stops and all the lights come on


Instructions
    • 1 Make sure the home's gas supply valve is turned on. Check your Maytag owner's manual to find the location of the dryer's gas shut-off valve. This is usually behind the dryer's front panel or in the back of the unit. Open the valve to allow gas to flow into the dryer.
    • 2 Open the lower front panel of the dryer to access the pilot light assembly. Press and hold the starter button as you light the pilot with a handheld lighter. If you have trouble getting it to light, release the starter button and wait a few minutes before trying it again. Once the pilot is lit, hold the starter button down for another minute to make sure it will stay burning.

    • 3 Close the dryer's front panel and run a test cycle to see if it is producing heat. Call a repairman to evaluate the problem if lighting the pilot did not restore the heat.

Have had a repair man out 3 times. Replaced igniter and gas regulator. Dryer will heat for a few minutes then stop heating. When I try to turn it back on, it will not turn on at all for about 10 minutes.


Are you saying the dryer will not start again after a few minutes? That is a motor [problem. Replace motor.
Are you saying dryer starts after a few minutes but will not heat? That is an air flow problem or a gas valve coil problem. Thoroughly clean EVERY single air passage in the dryer and vent tube. If that does not cure it, then replace gas valve coils if the igniter comes on and off.

Gas dryer ignites but wont stay lite


Try shorting out the Hi-limit sensor(Lg calls it that, don't know for whirlpool). See if that does anything. If it fixes that, don't leave it like that. replace it and the other fuse by it as well.
