Question about Whirlpool LEQ9858P Electric Dryer
Ignitor comes on and burner ignites for 30 secs to 1min and then shuts down. Glow ignitor cycles several times but burner does not ignite. Also sound lile slight rattling when ignitor cycles on. This is an older whirlpool gas dryer 5 cycle-3temps, Heavy duty super capacity
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
