Question about Dryers
For the last 2 or 3 weeks the lights on the front would flash at random. The dryer would shut off before the clothes were dry. We would turn it back on and it would finish drying the clothes. Now it won't even turn the the heat on. The dryer runs and the blower works but it won't ignite the gas.
Save hours of searching online or wasting money on unnecessary repairs by talking to a 6YA Expert who can help you resolve this issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

I would like to thank the ones who responded to giving me a 'hand' in repairing my dryer. I did like you said & changed out the coils & now the dryer is working like it should.

check the ignitor under the door panel on the left side of the burner if it gets red when you turn the dryer on.if yes than see if gas shoots out and yes than how long it stays on if in few minutes it turns off than need thermal fuse checked so let me know up to this point if it works or not .

ck/replace the 2 black coils on valve they will sometimes fail after 1st start up slight chance it may be flame sensor mounted on side of burner to ck remove the 2 wires and short together temporaily if flame stays on and reignites ckd vent system first bad flame may cause sensor to shut it off if flame/vent ok replace sensor

with a gas dryer in which your assured te hventing is free and clear of any obstructions, i would look to replace the coil pack located atop the gas valve itself, probably about $25 part number 279834... 2 coils simply mount atop the valvle
