Yes, that is most likely the problem. Once the glow bar igniter glows so hot, the switch opens & drops power to the igniter.(The radiant sensor has continuity while cold & open when a flame is present.) At the same time, by opening it redirects power to the valve coils allowing them to open & gas flow to the burner assembly. The dying glow of the igniter fires the gas. However, if your igniter glows, the radiant sensor is good. In this case, you'd need to replace the gas valve solenoids.

The flame sensor is probably bad. This is located on the side of the tube the flame is in. Has two wires going to it. Try to short it out and see if the flame stays lit. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES OPERATE THIS DRYER WITH CLOTHES IN IT WITHOUT THE FLAME SENSOR IN PLACE!!!!! The other problem might be air flow. If the duct is blocked the flame will trigger the high limit switch. Take the hose off the back of the dryer and turn it on. There should be a lot of air flow. If there is and the flame stays on the duct hose or outlet is clogged.

Hi, You will need to change the coils on the top of the gas valve. They are a plug in coil. This is a very common problem. If you need assistance on how to change them or the part#, I can help you. I would need you model#.

SOURCE: dryer heat shuts off

Hello, reading between the lines I'm going to assume you have a gas dryer. This problem is going to be your safety valve coils...basically they get old and over time of heating then cooling develop a short when they heat up...It may appear the gas lights to start but then goes out until the safety valve coils cool back down. Here is a picture of the coils 57d5263.jpgThis should solve your problem. Hope this helps, Please feel free to comment again if you have any further questions or concerns. Good Luck! Mike

Whirlpool Model LGN2000KQ0 ignighter glows, flame turns on for a few minutes then it goes out and the ignighter never glows again nor does the flame return


The problem is the dryer coils have failed. They tend to fail as they heat up. They are inexpensive and easy to replace. Here is a link that should help troubleshooting a gas dryer

Dryer starts up and flame starts for about 3-4 minutes and then flame goes out.


The pilot light lights? Then goe's back out? There is two stiff wires right in front of the flame. One of them is an ignightor, and the other one a thermocoupler. Or may just be one. That is the ignightor and thermocoupler. The thermocoupler is what detects that the pilot light lit. Its a saftey feature. It makes sure that there is fire before it turns on the main gas. So it wont blow up. It gets a film built up on it from the gas. Take some real fine sandpaper, or steel wool and clean it real good.
Then try again. It should work. If not then it needs to be replaced

Whirlpool gas dryer Model #WGD5530SQ0 not heating properly


If your dryer heats when you first turn it on and after a few minutes it does'nt. check the ignitor to see if it is glowing. It should glow bright then you will hear a click and the burner will light. If the ignitor glows bright but you hear a click but no flame and if you watch this for several minutes and this process continues of glow then glow goes out no flame, then you have a bad burner coil. There are 2 black solenoids sitting on top of gas valve. One of them is shorting out after it warms up. Replace both solenoids. You can usually get them as a kit from parts store.

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.

Whirlpool wgd5300sq0 dryer get hot then cools down. I replaced the thermal fuse as this was the cause the last time this problem was obsereved, however this time the problem has not be resolved. If I shut...


Sounds like the thermal cut-off is kicking in. Try checking the vent to make sure its not blocked and causing it to overheat, this would cause the cool down (the other candidate is a bad fuse, but if you fixed that already I would leave that for last)
