If the ignitor glows and dims with no gas, then it is the gas coils that need to replaced, If no glow, it could be anything from the timer, thermostats, flame sensor or wiring. Ohm the thermal fuse to see if it's open. It may be white and resting on the blower housing.

Gas dryer, does not get hot.


themobilian_2300.jpgthemobilian_2301.jpgthemobilian_2302.jpg

First look for air restrictions which would cause overheating and remedy that. Then hunt down these duct fuses and check them for continuity. The gas dyer fuse kills only the circuit to the gas valve assembly so if it or the control klixon next to it is open then no power can get to the gas assembly. The gass assembly consists of a flame sensor , an ignitor, and a pair of solenoids. All are powered together in a complex circuit intentionally so that the power is first diverted to the ignitor which will nt allow the solenoid coils to do their job because their is not enough juice to work the ignitor and them coils. So the flame sensor detects the heat coming off the ignitor and a bi-metal inside bends and kills power to that ignitor. With the energy freed up them coils yank open the gas valve and the gas flows out onto the ignitor.

If the ignitor comes on and the flame sensor shuts it down but no gas comes out or gas comes out on first try but fails to fire off again then them solenoid coils need to be replaced. More Here

Gas......starts to heat then quits minutes later.


Problem is your gas solenoid coils. When they get worn they will open til they get out then shut. They will need to be replaced.

Part number 279834 replaces for most models.
