My dryer turns on, will click then the fire ignites, but goes out after a few seconds, so it is not staying on, and it takes two and three cycles for my clothes to dry, is it the igniter?


Hi, If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes it is still not working properly. if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip.... If you have an electric dryer, you can have many differentthings that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat. check outthis electric no heat tip...

I replaced the timer and it still dosen't work and clothes don't get dry


you have to check the igniter fisrt, if your dryer is white you have a plug at the lower left corner, remove it,turn the dryer on and look for the igniter to glow. if you see no glow after 1 minute replace the igniter. if it glow and goes off and no gas is ignited then replace the coils.

Igniter lights, gets hot then it turns off


Check for a clogged vent, or a stretched out belt.

Gas dryer heat is intermediate


does the igniter glow white or orange? if it is orange you need to replace it. has to be white hot to ignite. if the igniter is white it could be the coils not opening the gas valve all the time - an intermittent problem.

My dryer is gas. The problem is that when I turn on the drier the flame ignites and after a while goes out and does not re-ignite.


This is most likely caused by faulty gas valve coils. These electrical coils are right above the gas valves and when energized, these solenoids open the gas valves and permit the burner to light. Faulty gas valve coils are a common cause of "cycling". It is recommended that if any coils are suspected of being faulty that both (all) be replaced at the same time. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Dryer worked well until recently. Igniter glows


I would take a look at the gas coil solenoids. The gas coils are right above the gas valves. They are black electrical coils. When energized, the coils open the gas valves. If one or more of the coils is defective (bad solenoids), then the gas valves won't open and the gas cannot ignite. Because it's difficult to test the coils, it is best to replace both (all) of them at the same time. Sure hope this helped and best wishes.

Intermitten Heat up


make sure that your vent is not plug up can you go outside your house and feel good air coming out the vent when the dryer is turn on if so the only other things it could be is the coils that sit on the ignotor assmebly or the high limit termistat is not working properly the coils are little black circle coils that sit in the ignitor assmly should have a metal braket across the top of them holding them in you can check resistance on these coils if you have an meter
