Dryer heat turns off after about 5 min- dyer will remain running but no heat
HI, After the heat shuts down, do you hear a click like it is trying to heat again but then get no flame. The most some problem is the coils on the gas valve go bad and will not reopen after they have heated up.
Remove the cap on the front lower left panel. After dryer has ran and heat shuts down, watch and se if the ignitor glows again (you will hear a click) and the ignitor shuts off before a flame. If this happens, change the coils on th gas valve.
Here is instruction:
UNPLUG the dryer. This model you need to remove the two
screws under the lint screen. Now use a flat blade screw drive and insert it in
the gap between the top and the front panel and pry the top up. Now locate and
remove the screws on the inside of the front panel in upper corners. The front
should lift off. You will see the two black coils on the gas valve. When you
remove the three wire coil, make sure the sleeve inside it gets put back on the
post the coils slides onto.
If I can assist you further, please let me know.
