Question about Dryers
I took the panel off the front and cleaned about a 1/2 inch of lint off of the inside. yikes! There was actually a layer that looked like it had been smoldering. I can see the igniter working and for the first two or three cycles the gas comes on as well. Then the gas stops coming on and the igniter cycles on and off at about 10 seconds per minute. No gas and no clicking noise that it usually makes when the gas comes on. I also took the lint chase apart and cleaned it all out. I also took the dryness sensor(?) out and wiped it down and made sure all of the connections were solid. I also made sure the vent pipe going to the outside was clear. I'm guessing it might be the sensor and it is not telling the gas servo to turn on the gas because the clothes are still wet. It is converted to LP.
Replace the coil packs on the gas valve this fixes 90% of gas dryers lighting intermittently. The bracket comes off and they are sold seperatly from any appliance parts retailer or www3.sears.com Of course first thing to verify is gas supply. Dont forget to rate my solution as solved if I accurately answered your question...Thanks!!
