Question about Whirlpool GGW9200L Gas Dryer

1 Answer

Igniter starts to glow for 3-5 sec while making noise every minute or so

When cold the igniter stays on for 7-10 seconds and gas value opens and the burn turns on. Flame is orange/bluish. Stay on for 3 min and then shuts off abruptly. Within 1 minute the igniter glows for 3-5 seconds (while make a low "grinding" noise) but the burner never lights again. When the glow goes out there is a distinctive click on the 2+ try. But never on a cold start. I have cleaned and tested all the standard items.

Check the thermocouple it is going bad or already has and that is why the gas valve is not staying open.

HI, Check your 4" vent to the outside and make sure it is clean and that it has no kinks.
Any restriction to the outside will cause the dryer to short cycle. All thermostats must have continuity. With the dryer running, remove the lint screen and check to see if there is good air flow by putting your hand in where the filter goes (it is safe). You should feel air rushing past your hand if the vent is clear.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

SOURCE: Gas Dryer coil glows but no flame

Sounds like you need to replace your coils. Probably only one of them is bad, but why hassle with determining which one when you can get a pair for about $20 (the other one may be ready to fail soon anyway).

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.

Oven takes 5 minutes to come on (ignite).


Replaced the igniter. The parts guy told me that the amperage changes with age and use; thus the igniter still glows, but it takes much longer to operate the gas valve with the reduced amperage. Cost - $70.14

Glow coil glows but wo'nt ignite burner. can


if you have used the self clean function you may have burned up the ignitor they are rated for about 1000 deg for just about a minute but when you clean it stays around 800-900 deg for about an hour or so. You may just need to replace the ceramic ignitor. as for the gas, the valve will only stay open for a few seconds, if the oven doesnt recognize a flame the gas valve will close.

Sears kenmore gas dryer 417.92052101does not stay lit.


Watch the burner assembly, shortly after starting the dryer the ignitor should begin to glow. If it glows for several seconds (up to 15 seconds) and then goes out, then the problem is probably the solenoids (coils). If the ignitor glows and stays on, then the problem is usually the flame sensor.

Hi, It sounds like the coils on top the gas valve are bad. If the ignitor glows but shuts off before a flame, the coils need changed.
I hope this helps. If I can assist you further, please let me know.

Thanks

Gas ignites but goes out after 15 or 20 seconds


Hello gdurawa
Welcome to Fixya
My name is Huum,

You said, upon starting my Kenmore gas dryer the igniter glows and the gas ignites, but the gas goes out after 15 or 20 seconds - clothes don't dry.

This means either the igniter is bad and not getting hot enough to make the gas continue to release completely and stay open, so it shut off.
or you have a bad gas module.
Or a bad gas valve without enough pressure.
Needs to be diagnosed hands on at your location .



Thank You For trusting us with your question
