I have gas dryer,the for heat works sometime


if it's a gas dryer and you have heat for the first 15 to 30 minutes and then no heat you have bad gas coils.when the coils are starting to fail they will work until they heat up and then stop working,when they cool you'll have heat again.very simple to fix,unplug the dryer,remove bottom panel or front panel to get at the gas valve.on top of the valve are the gas coils,remove two phillips screws,you might need a 1/4 inch socket with a phillips bit to take out the screws depending on your model and next time send model number so i can help you better,then remove cover,change one coil at a time.there is a little plastic ball on the top of the coils that line up with the cover and a metal spacer on the large coil that slides onto the post,if you don't see the spacer on the post poke it out of the old coil and slide it onto the post and then install the new coil.it's very simple.also if your clothes take a long time to dry you might have to clean out the dryer,all a dryer does is move air,if the lint blocks the vent line or the duct that the lint filter slides into you're gonna have problems.with a gas dryer you have an open flame inside and lint catches fire,you should clean the dryer every year and you'll have mostly no problems with it.if the vent line is long blow it out with a leaf blower,you'll see all the lint blow outside,then remove the duct that the lint filter slides into and clean that,next with a shop vac vac out the cabinet where the motor is and then put the vac on blow and blow the motor off and all your gas parts.if you need any more help let me know and send model number next time

I need to replace valve coils on Whirpool LGR3624JQ2 Gas Dryer. Problem is I don't know how to access the coil. How do I remove the front panel. Thanks NAL


Disconnect power to the dryer then pull the lint filter out and remove the screws near the opening.

Insert a putty knife blade or similar tool between the top panel and the front panel to release the clips securing the top panel to the top of the front panel on both sides as shown then rotate the top panel up to the rear of the dryer.

Disconnect the door switch wire harness then remove the front panel screws and lift the panel up and off the cabinet.

You now have access and view of the burner assembly where the gas valve coils are located.

Disconnect the wires from the coils and remove the screws from the bracket then lift the coils out. Slide the new coils in then secure it with the bracket and reconnect the wire harnesses.

Reinstall the front panel from the bottom then up and secure it to the cabinet. Rotate the top panel down back into position then push it against the top of the front panel until the securing clips engage and snap into place

How do you remove the front of the kenmore 80 gas dryer


You need to remove the panel at the top, then you remove the top, then the front, screws for front are inside of dryer. Go to www.appliancepartspros.com and put in your brand and model number. It will pull up all parts for your dryer including schematics that you can enlarge and print of the whole breakdown of you dryer. This will really help you to take apart and put together. Gas coils are at bottom under drum.

Coil replacement


I'm not an expert but assuming you ordered the coils for your dryer your dryer must have them. I just finshed repairing my kenmore gas dryer after about 10 minutes the gas would shut off. This is becasue the coils that are on top of the gas line before the ignigter were defective. The coils control the gas valve and when my dryer got hot the coil being defective would close the valve. There are 2 coils a 2 prong and a 3 prong. Remove the front panel to gain access to the bottom of the dryer from there you will see your coils about as round as a quarter and 10 or so high. unscrew the screws holding down the retainer and undue the electrical clip. reverse for the install. good luck!

Flame turns on only when dryer is cold, runs for 10 minutes then burner shuts off. The coil glows very bright but the flame does not come on again until dryer has colled way down


The gas valve coils are bad. When they heat up they are losing resistance to stay on.
Turn off the gas. Unplug the machine. Remove the front panel. The gas valve will be in the front right hand corner. Remove the gas valves and replace them with new valves. Please note how the coils orient on the gas valve.

Dryer not heating up


Hi, If the dryer stops heating later in the cycle, it is most likely the coils on top of the gas valve. It is a very common issue with the gas dryer.
Here is how to change the coils
UNPLUG the dryer. This model you need to remove the two screws under the lint screen. Now use a flat blade screw drive and insert it in the gap between the top and the front panel and pry the top up. Now locate and remove the screws on the inside of the front panel in upper corners. The front should lift off. You will see the two black coils on the gas valve. When you remove the three wire coil, make sure the sleeve inside it gets put back on the post the coils slides onto.
If I can assist you further, please let me know.

Thanks

Gas dryer will not stay warm for long


Hi, You will need to replace the coils on top of the gas valve.
There is a small plastic cap that you can remove in the lower front panel. Start the dryer and see if the ignitor glows and shuts off before the gas ignites. If this is the case, the coils need replaced. This is a very common issue with the gas dryer.
Here is how to change the coils:
UNPLUG the dryer. This model you need to remove the two screws under the lint screen. Now use a flat blade screw drive and insert it in the gap between the top and the front panel and pry the top up. Now locate and remove the screws on the inside of the front panel in upper corners. The front should lift off. You will see the two black coils on the gas valve. When you remove the three wire coil, make sure the sleeve inside it gets put back on the post the coils slides onto.

Blowing cold air


Hi, UNPLUG the dryer! Remove the rear panel of the dryer and locate the fuse. It is white and ¼” wide and 3” long. It is located on the blower housing. Remove the wires and check to see if it has continuity. If it does not, you need to replace it.
If the fuse is ok, remove the small access cap in the front lower corner and start the dryer. Look and see if the igintor glows. If it glows and doesn't light the burner, change the coils on top of the gas valve. Here is how:

My gas dryer will not heat up and will not turn off at the end of the cycle. Both problems started at the same time.


Hi, The timer will not advance unless there is heat (if in the automatic cycle)

If the dryer heats in first part of cycle and stops late in cycle, you will need to change the coils on the gas valve. Here is how:

Dryer heat turns off after about 5 min- dyer will remain running but no heat


HI, After the heat shuts down, do you hear a click like it is trying to heat again but then get no flame. The most some problem is the coils on the gas valve go bad and will not reopen after they have heated up.
Remove the cap on the front lower left panel. After dryer has ran and heat shuts down, watch and se if the ignitor glows again (you will hear a click) and the ignitor shuts off before a flame. If this happens, change the coils on th gas valve.
Here is instruction: Normal 0 UNPLUG the dryer. This model you need to remove the two screws under the lint screen. Now use a flat blade screw drive and insert it in the gap between the top and the front panel and pry the top up. Now locate and remove the screws on the inside of the front panel in upper corners. The front should lift off. You will see the two black coils on the gas valve. When you remove the three wire coil, make sure the sleeve inside it gets put back on the post the coils slides onto.
