Samsung gas dryer

Nothing to worry about . The problem you had was there was air in the line. Here's how it works. The igniter heats up then the gas valve opens. You had air coming out so it did not light initially . The air was followed by the gas supply but at that point the igniter was already cooling down. When you tried a second time the gas line was purged of all air hence normal operation.
happy drying.

Kenmore gas dryer 80series model 110.c72852101

if you hear the valve clicking but no gas the valve is bad.when the burner lights theres a probe that senses that it is lit and sends a microvoltage back to the controller to tell its lit.check to make sure all ground wires are grounded to a clean metal surface.

Gas does not light

Need more info. Is the igniter coming on but no flame, is the igniter not coming on. Several things will make the igniter not come on (timer, motor switch, thermal fuses, thermostats, temp selectors, etc. What have you checked already?

How do you light a pilot light for my GE gas dryer? Model = DDG7188PHLWH

How old is your dryer? Only models from the 1980's and older have actual pilot flame lighters. If it's newer it will have either a spark igniter or an electric glow bar. If you have a large front access panel across the bottom, then you may have a pilot light. Remove the panel and look for the gas valve. (NOTE: Before lighting anything, make sure you do not smell gas. If you do, you'll need to air the room out before trying) There will be a burner coming out the back of the gas valve control and this control will have a red push button in the front or side of it to allow gas to the pilot only. Using a extended bbq type lighter, light the pilot at the pilot assembly and hold the button for about 60 seconds. The pilot assembly is connected to the gas valve control by a small diameter aluminum tubing with a copper thermocouple right next to it. Release and make sure the pilot stays lit. Before putting the access panel back on, turn on the dryer and watch for the burner to light. It should be a strong blue flame. Let us know if we can help you further. Not knowing why your pilot went out in the first place, there may be a unforeseen issue that may need attention. If you have a propane gas dryer and you ran out of gas, then it may take a while to get gas to the pilot, so be patient when trying to light it. Never hold the button down without the lighter lit at the pilot assembly, so there is not a build-up of gas. If you are not comfortable doing this, I recommend you call your gas co to light it for you, as many will do it for free! Good luck and be careful!

We have a commercial inglis gas dryer..under door is a model number JO-71200 when i search for it says no match.dryer quit about a week ago we replaced a few rollers then we noticed clothes weren't...

Well I'm not familiar with gas delivery systems on dryers, but I can tell you how they work on home heating boilers and I'm sure they are very similar. There are two type, standing pilot (which you have) and spark ignition. Spark ignition uses two electrodes with an electric spark to ignite the gas. Now your situation your dryer may have what is called a thermocouple which is like a little metal cylinder connected to a wire. When the flame is lit it heats that thermocouple which produces a voltage. That voltage keeps your gas valve open to keep the pilot light lit. If your pilot light is lit then the thermocouple is not bad. You need to check your circuit and see where the break is. Its true it could be a thermostat. To check a thermostat you need to take it off the dryer and you can either use a lighter or put it in boiling water till you hear is pop or open up. If you hear it pop twice then it is good (you'll hear it pop once when it heats up and once when it cools down). There is a circuit that keeps that gas valve open, and after 10 seconds something is opening that gas valve circuit, you need to see what all is connected to it, then you will solve your problem.

My dryer is not getting my clothing dry. what could be the issue of not drying my clothing?

Blocked air vent. Check where the vent exits to the outside, as usually condensation builds up on the "bird blocker" which attracts dust, which attracts condensation, which attracts dust... etc.

Gas valve coils. The gas valve is opened by two electromagnetic coils. When they start go go bad, they will open the gas valve in the beginning of the cycle, then as the current heats them up, they will quit working, and you will lose heat partway through the cycle.

Igniter. The gas is lit by an electrical lighter similar to the cigarette lighters cars used to have. If the igniter breaks, then the gas valve coils don't turn on, and you get no heat at all.

Dryer ignites but does'nt light

Igniter glows, then shuts off without igniting gas - the problem is probably with defective coils (black, located on top of the gas valve). It is recommended to replace all coils (usually two or three) if found defective.

Note: Sometimes the whole gas valve may be defective, thus not letting the gas out. However, this problem is not common.

Dryer does not release any heat

Is yours the gas model? If so I need you to look for some things. Open back door panel and see if while trying to light the igniter is glowing orange. Sea Breeze
