    My dryer is doing the same thing. Everything looks clean. I ran the diagnostics that came with the machine and received a code indicating that it was the thermistor. I replaced that, but still have the same code and problem.

    Thanks,
    Don

Check the loose blower wheel and lint in the filter housing phenom associated with these dryers. The operator coils will get hot and quit and cool down after several hours and work again making it imposible to pinpoint a solution. Replace those coils. $20 bucks.

LOCATION OF 62-24164-01 IGNITOR ON WEATHER KING FURNACE


Who knows? You gotta post a video of your furnace so we can see what you got. Here is the sequence of operation of a late model furnace. they all basically work the same way. They have a draft inducer fan that causes a vacuum in a small hose leading to the pressure switch. If the board reads negative pressure it know the draft motor is working and pulling a draft it then cause the ignitor to kick in and after a minute opens the gas valve. It wait a sec to verify flame with the flame sensor and then if that flame is there it keeps burning and after 30 more seconds the fan kicks in.
Most of the time if the ignitor ain't workin it is either bad or a limit has tripped due to some sort of overheat problem like birdnest or cobwebs and such.

I have a gas dryer, model MDG7657AWW that will not stay heated. Every time I put it on, the flame comes on for about 21 seconds & then shuts off. I replaced the igniter, hi limit thermostat, cycling t


On a gas dryer the heat normally only comes on for 30 seconds or until the drum temp reaches 160f at which time the flame is shut down by the cycling thermostat. The drum temp then starts to drop. When the drum temp reaches 105f then another blast of heat is issued for 30 more seconds.That is how they work. Put it all back together and trow a load in there.

Dryer starts , the gas lights and stays on for about 30 bseconds and turns off the dryer stays running without heat. How can I fix this?


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

This is usually caused by a failed flame sensor PN 338906. Loss of a flame sensor signal (open) will cause the gas valve to shut off in 30 - 42 seconds

How to test the flame sensor:
  • Remove the front panel
  • Open the top panel
  • Leave the drum & belt the way they are, work around them and be careful NOT to get the belt idler pulley disconnected
  • Disconnect the wires from the flame sensor
  • Set your multimeter to read ohms
  • Take a reading between the 2 terminals on the sensor.The reading should be close to 0 ohms but for sure under 1,600 ohms 3 wire type and 500 - 600 ohms for the 2 wire type.
  • If the reading is infinity, the sensor must be replaced

If you can reach the flame sensor through the gas burner access (if so equipped / depending on model) it is even better because you don't have to open the dryer up.

Just note there are 2 types of flame sensor out there. One has 2 terminals and one has 3 terminals. the links below are for the 2 terminal flame sensor.

I have a model LDG712 gas dryer. The flame ignites and burns for about 20 seconds. The flame then stops burning and it about 1 minute and 30 seconds or more before it lights again. The glow bar...


The flame should cycle on for about 50 seconds on the first cycle and approx 20 sec each additional cycle. I would check your airflow out of the dryer it my be restricted not allowing the flame to pull through the burner tube causing the unit to "short cycle". Its not likely a thermostat issue but if you were to replace a thermostat I would replace the cycling thermostat should be part number 3387134. Hope this helps.

MAYTAG GAS DRYER MODEL SDG305DAWW. THE IGNIGHTER GLOWS BUT DO NOT REVEIVE A FLAME


Your igniter is working fine. The problem is the flame sensor needs to be replaced. The flame sensor is a safety feature. If it doesn't detect heat from the igniter it prevents the gas from flowing. A new flame sensor will cost about 30 - 35 dollars. You can buy on online here

Whirlpool model GGQ8858EQ1 gas dryer starts, gets flame and begins heating. then after a short while flame shuts off and i hear a chattering noise somewhere near the bottom of dryer. It lasts for about...


The problem is your gas valve solenoids (coils). There are usually two of them mounted on the burner assembly. One is the MAIN coil, the other is the SECONDARY coil. It is recommended that you replace BOTH of them at the same time. Replacements can be purchased on line at appliancepartspros.com. Just type in the model number you provided and look under the "Burner Assembly" section for items 13 and 14. I hope this helps you.
