My heater will kick on, every thing is firing, the ignition thing lights up, the pilot gets lit then it kicks off, with the combustion fan running blowin cold air in the house. i've replace the air filter, cleaned the ducts, but still the problem, can u help?
It should have a diagnostic set of leds on the board, with the code list on the door and the control board itself. If it get to the pilot stage and the shuts down its most likely the gas valve. You can check for continuity from mv to c on valve, you should have it. Then with a valtage test from mv to a ground or common as you here the next click of a relay on the board after the pilot has had a few seconds.

If it's electric and you do not have the knowledge to be working with 220 vac power I would suggest you call a repair person to come and look at it. It can be a tripped breaker, check you breaker box and shut off the drier breaker and than turn it back on making sure both sides lock on. Other than that, you can have a bad heater element or a bad timer. The most common would be a bad heating element. The element is normally found either behind the drum or down below the drum area and can be accessed by removing the lower front panel. Gain access to the element or open the dryer door and start the dryer by holding down the door switch and push the start button. If it is behind the drum you should see it glowing by looking inside the drum as it's running. The same is true for the element that is underneath the drum...remove the panel and start the dryer, you should see a glow from the element box. If you do not see a glow, unplug the dryer and check the element for a burned connection or break in the element wire. If you have a gas dryer, check that the supply is on, check that the dryer is plugged in and if so equipped check that the pilot light is lit. If the dryer has electronic ignition, you should hear a clicking noise when you first start it up. No noise, no ignition! If the pilot light is out follow your instruction book and relight the pilot or call your gas company for help!
I am not aware of any washers that have built in heaters. Your problem seems to be with your hot water supply in the house. If you have a hot water heater gas or propane pilot may be out, or electric possibly tripped curciut breaker, or if furnace coil , possible furnace servicing is required. Did you just have new machine installed? Did installer forget to turn on the hot water? Basically before you get to upset go backwards from the machine to the problem. It will turn out to be an oversight due to the excitement with your new machine. Enjoy, and GOOD LUCK.
Press any of the buttons on the control panel to see if the buttons are operational or check to see if the "Control Locked" indicator light is lit. If the control panel is operational, you may mistakenly lock the door.
Press and hold the "End of Cycle Signal" button for approximately three seconds until the "Control Locked" indicator light shuts off.
if the pilot light is working it must be the thermal bulb is not sensing the heat, you can try and use a long nosed lighter and try to heat the bulb up and turn the gas on and the added heat might help it kick on. Give it a try.
Most often thsi is caused by the ignitor failure. Many of them sevelop a very small crack that will stop the flow of electric through them. The first thing to look for is a small trace of white powder across the ignitor. If you see white on it then chances are that it is bad.
There are other things that could be wrong such as low gas pressure or even have you run out or had your gas turned off??? (I sure hopenot but have to bring it up..)
Sometimes a bad ground wire or dirt in a pilot orfice can also cause an ignition failure. These things can be very dificult to find and fix.
I hope that this will help you to solve your problem.
Change the flame sensor (Thermocouple) Then go ahead and fire it up. If the flame sensor is not sensing the flame you will be able to light the pilot then everything will shut off. There is a way to agjust the pilot but 99.9% of the time the adjustment is ok, Specially with a floor furnace so change the thermocouple and you will be ok. You can get one at Ace, Home Depot Lowes, or a local appliance store
This model should be electronic ignition and does not use a pilot light. The igniter may be faulty.or the gas module may be faulty. Pilots are a thing of the past! This requires a tech to test it with equipment.
