You ignitor is working and sensor is working because it will fire up. so those pesky coils are intermittant because they get hot and quit cool off and work some more . replace them

I had this same problem and it was the hot surface ignitor. It got hot enough to light the gas but not hot enough to satisfy the flame rectifier. It would light the gas then go out. This was soon after changing the coils on the gas valve. If it doesn't glow almost white hot the gas won't stay on.

Hello,

What your describing sounds pretty much like the sympthons of weak coils that open the gas valve. It is a fairly common thing that happens with gas dryers so i have written a tip that explains in detail what happens when gas valve coils are weak.

Burners won`t stay lit.........


There are several possible causes for this. Bad flame sensor, bad thermostat switch, blocked air vent, or bad gas coils.

Gas dryer ignites but wont stay lite


Try shorting out the Hi-limit sensor(Lg calls it that, don't know for whirlpool). See if that does anything. If it fixes that, don't leave it like that. replace it and the other fuse by it as well.

Gas dryer not heating properly


This sounds like the flame sensor is bad to me.

If it does not work properly, the unit will shut off for safety. The machine assumes that the burner did not light and rather than run gas into your house, it shuts off. It may try to start a certain number of times and then shut off.

You may be able to remove and clean it (flame sensor) lightly with a scotch brite pad and it may work properly again.

Otherwise it will need replacement.

This is a very common problem and the part is probably in stock.

Post a comment on your progress as this solution is likely to be useful to many people.

Thanks,

Tim

The problem is not the gas valve.

DISCONNECT THE EXHAUST FROM THE BACK OF THE DRYER AND TRY DRYING ONE LOAD OF LAUNDRY. IF THE DRYER WORKS O.K. WITH THE EXHAUST DISCONNECTED, YOU HAVE A RESTRICTION IN THE EXHAUST DUCT SOMEWHERE.

Kenmore gas dryer igniting problem


check the flame sensor. it could be the problem since it would ignite first then if the flame sensor is mal functioning, it would indicate a "no flame" signal that would cut off the fuel solenoid. then it would shut it off.

After first Ignition cycle igniter stays on too briefly to open gas valve gas.


Valid Most likely the problem with your dryer is the coils for the gas valve. Remove the access door (on the bottom right side on the front panel) and you can see the gas valve with three coils on top of it. They are coming as a kit with complete instruction. The part number for this kit is AP2669614.You can buy it here http://click.linksynergy.com/fs-bin/click?id=SrmyP8LkIos&offerid=92089.542517043&type=10&subid=
