Question about Dryers
Estate gas dryer model tgds780jq1 runs but won't heat.
Hi, Remove the little cap on the front panel lower left corner and start the dryer. Look into the hole and see if the ignitor glows (5 - 10 seconds)
If the ignitor does not glow, try this: Normal 0 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 ignitor glows and then shuts off before you see a flame, try this:
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. I know this is a lot of info but, it's the most popular problems.
Please let me know if this help or if I can assist you further.
