90% of all gas dryers lighting intermittently is resolved with new coil packs on the gas valve. The coils are replacable fairly easily and inexpensive.

first ck gas to unit, next is ck the coils on the burner valve right, there(i just looked up and this is an older unit) set of coils is about $85, the entire burner valve including coils and new ignitor is about $135.that would be my bet the whole thing but is it worth it putting 135 into the dryer

SOURCE: LG DRYER DLE2532W DISASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS

DLE2532W is an electric heat model. (a gas model would be a DLG......) To get a rear control LG dryer apart: Open door and remove two phillips head screws at the 5 and 7 o'clock positions. Use a putty knife to release the clips holding the top panel to the dryer front by pushing the clips in at the seam of the dryer top and front, a couple inches in from each side. Swing top back. Remove two phillips head screws at the top, allowing front panel to pull forward. Unplug drum light and door switch and drum sensor plugs, allowing front panel to be completely removed and set aside. Now, look at the burner area at the lower right. Behind the gas valve you will find a small (about dime sized) high limit thermostat on the left side of the burner cone. It has two wires attached and has a small pin in the center of it. (Only on gas models) Push the pin in.
Now, if that get's you ignition again, CORRECT VENTING ! Get rid of flexible vent material. (use only rigid aluminum vent pipe and elbows) Clean out vent pipes and outside vent hood. Outside vent hood should be the kind with a four inch flap for the opening, not a two inch flap. Tripping of the high limit thermo is almost always caused by inadequate air flow.

Igniter starts to glow for 3-5 sec while making noise every minute or so


Check the thermocouple it is going bad or already has and that is why the gas valve is not staying open.

80 series kenmore gas dryer. Won't dry clothes. Igniter glows, gas valve opens, flame lights. Stays on for about 45 seconds then flame shuts off. About 1 minute later it lights again but it doesn't stay on...


Did you get a solution yet? - our dryer is doing the same exact thing....last time it was not lighting at all and we found out it was the thermal fuse - very cheap fix...this time the symptoms are exactly as you described.

Gas will not stay lit on my Kenmore series 80 dryer..


If the ignitor is working properly (glowing visibly) and the burner will not light, then I would suspect faulty gas valve coils. These electrical coils are right above the gas valves and when energized, these solenoids open the gas valves and permit gas flow to the burner. If faulty the gas valves will not open and the burner cannot light. It is recommended that if any are suspected of being faulty, that both (all) be changed at the same time and they will likely come from the parts supplier as a set. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

GLOW PLUG WORKS BUT ONLY STAYS LIT FOR 30 SECONDS


HI, there are a set of coils on the gas valve assembly that have gone bad. these coils are responsible for the opening and closing of the gas valves. your coil assembly is damaged, in return, causing this interruption.

simply replacing the coils will fix this issue.

Dryer Ignitor turns on then back off with no flames afterwards


the government mandated that gas appliances start using electronic ignighters because pilot lights would keep blowing gas even after they blew out now the way they work is calibrated on how much amps the glow bar draws the rest of the amps go to the safety valve to open it when the glow bar is drawing enough amps to be hot enough to ignite the gas now what this means is even though the glow bar glows it can still not be hot enough to ig night the gas so the safety valves don't get the right amps to the solenoids to open so you could have a weak ignighter or bad solenoids on the safety valves now i would lean toward the solenoids but i would buy both and first replace the solenoids then the ignighter if the solenoids work take the ignighter back

Maytag gas dryer wont stay hot


Check the exhaust to see if it is clogged. If not, you may need a pair of gas valve coils (not very hard.)
Replace the coils if you see the ignitor glow and shut off, without the gas valve opening up.
