if you hear the valve clicking but no gas the valve is bad.when the burner lights theres a probe that senses that it is lit and sends a microvoltage back to the controller to tell its lit.check to make sure all ground wires are grounded to a clean metal surface.
When the igniter comes on and goes off but no flame the problem is going to with the gas valve coils and they need to be replaced. i do not see a brand or model number listed in your question but genarally all gas valve coils are the same and look very similar to the ones pictured here.
igniter. Does it glow bright orange, then shut off without igniting the
gas? (When the gas ignites there's a large blue flame.) If so, there
may be defective coils on the gas valve. Mounted on the top of modern
gas valves, there are black electrical coils. The coils, when
energized, open the gas valve. If one or more of the coils are
defective, the valve doesn't open and the gas cannot ignite. Because
it's often difficult to properly test the coils, it's usually best to
replace both (all) of them at the same time.
it sounds like the gas valve solenoids are shorting out. there are two coils that operate in tandem to allow gas flow. these coils can eventually overheat and cause the gas not to flow as well have a rattling sound from the plunger inside the coil trying to move inside the weakened coil. the coils can be replaced and will come in a pair with guide pins to help you put them in correctly. one coil will have three wires going to it and the other coil will have two wires going to it. pretty simple fix and should solve the problem
hope this helps....jay
you have weak gas valkve coils and they will work when cold but after a few cycles they become electrically open and will not allow the gas to flow. just replace both gas valve coils and that will fix your problem.
The problem you are describing is usually associated with a bad gas valve coil. The dryer runs normally until it gets hot, then starts making a strange clicking noise. After it cools down, the dryer runs normally again. The gas valve coils (there are two of them) usually run about $20 a piece. I recommend replacing both of them at the same time just to be sure. I hope this helps.
