There is no repair to fix the leaking gas valve other than to replace the gas valve with a brand new one.

Gas valve wich way do I turn knob to install my Kenmore elite dryer

If a gate valve: Turn the valve clockwise to turn OFF the gas.
If a ball valve: Turn the valve handle perpendicular to the valve body to turn off the gas.

Install the dryer. Attach all lines.
Turn gas on.
Using a soap/water combination, spray all gas lines to check for leaks. If any bubbles form, then turn the gas off and seal all leaks.

If you do not know how to perform these functions safely, then pay a qualified technician to prevent a gas explosion.

I have a bryant gas furnace M#:395cav036055acja. I can hear the gas valve open but theres no gas flow. I can also see the ignitor light and then cycle off after several restarts. Do i need a new gas valve...

The first thing I would do is to shut valve off on gas supply line and remove fitting and nipple that screws directly into the gas valve. There should be a fine mesh screen in the gas inlet. Make sure it is clean and not obstructing gas flow. Use teflon tape and/or pipe joint compound on all threaded fittings when you reassemble. When you have everything tight except the union you can slightly open gas valve to make sure you have gas to that point.After you finish tightening all fitting turn gas valve back on and check for leaks.
You can put a few drops of dish soap on each threaded fitting to check for leaks. If soap bubbles then you have a leak. Repair leak and see if furnace will fire. If you are sure you have gas to gas valve and you can hear valve trying to open but still no flame I would replace gas valve.

Good luck and I hope this helps you some. Thank you

Smelled mild gas odor after moving dryer. Replaced gas line connection. Still smell gas. Tried to tighten gas line have strong gas odor after running dryer. Does not seem to be heating

The gas valve should not be opening unless the glow igniter glows and sends a signal to the gas valve. I suspect a small leak in either the gas pipe or at the gas valve. You will have to get to the gas valve to perform a leak test. While the dryer is open, replace the igniter.

Gas smell when oven is on and heating.

This sounds like a gas leak at the gas control valve for the oven, probably somewhere just past the control valve. If the leak was before the valve, you would either hear or smell gas leaking all the time.
The line could simply be loose at the fitting or the gas valve could be faulty. You could also have a leak somewhere at or before the oven burner assembly.

At any rate, this condition can be dangerous. The oven gas leak (any gas leak) should be diagnosed by a competent technician and the cause(s) of the gas leak determined as soon as possible and corrected.

Had the unit for seven years, it started to leak water around the water valve. Bosch aqua Star 125x ng

You have to fix this leak around the water valve before
it causes damage to your equipment.
1. Close the water supply valve going to your tankless
water heater.
2. Unplug or close the natural gas valve.
3. Now, you can work fixing the leak.
4. Once completed, you can proceed to open the
natural gas valve as well as the water supply valve.
5. Then, have it tested to get it done.

Have an old gas valve in floor of house. Have to replace

You will need to find the shutoff valve at your gas meter. With a big wrench turn it 1/4 turn this will cutoff the gas to you house completely. Now you can remove the old valve and install the new one safely. There may be a bit of residual gas pressure in the piping of the house. But make sure that it stops before removing the valve completely. Use a good pipe dope on the threads on the pipe before installing the new valve. Turn on the gas at the meter again and spray the threads at the gas valve with soapy water to check for leaks. If the soapy water makes bubles you have a leak. Turn off the gas again and tighten the valve down more or reinsatll the valve with fresh pipe dope.
