Question about Dryers
I have Maytag gas dryer seems not working right,the burning gas just stays on about 5-6 seconds then it shut off and will come back on about 1 minute later,I replace both thermos and pl coil valve kit but the problem is sill the same,PLEASE HELP thanks. Model LDG5914AAM.
So from my understanding you replaced both gas valve coils???? yes,do you have an ohm meter.it dosen't happen often but they could be defective.next if your house venting or dryer was very!!!!!!!!,it would have tobe very blocked up.the heat would open the safty thermo and stop the burner from firing.as a appliance doctor i would take your dryers temputure .lol.. but realy..how hot dose it get.not hot,ok the then dose the voltage drop out at the valve when the coils go out??if it dose its in the other componets before the valve.but if voltage stays presant when coil stops its in the valve area.manufactures used to have connector coming to the valve from the top side[newer dryers they are saving money and left it out then connections would be at the coils]put you volt meter probes there at connector.thats how it works.i had a thought on how to check the flame switch.its the box on the side of the flame tube,black with two wires.after the burner lites[you got to be careful]pull one of those wires off[its hot 110 volts]thats a rare problem but i've had to replace a few over the years[so they do go bad]if after pulling off dryer then works open the door and the power stops to that wire.[also with the power off i might loosen that flame switch wire so comes off eazy when pulled.if any other questions please feel free to email God bless ,tom

If you are having problems with your
gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor
goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working
you dryer is gas check out this gas
If you have an electric dryer, you can
have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to
out this electric
