Hello Friend, Your problem is very simple to fix. You're dryer needs a gas valve coil kit. To replace coils just remove front of dryer body and look below drum you will see the gas valve. The valve coils are located on top of valve (two little round black cylinders). It's simple, just remove the two screws from the little metal bracket that holds them down, unplug the wires from them and just lift them straight up off of the valve. Take notice that one has 3 wires and one has 2 wires. Just replace with new coils and plug wires back in and re-fasten metal bracket. Your dryer will run like new. Happy to help, Tim.

My whirlpool gas dryer will not cycle through on Automatic Dry. When I start the dryer it will ignite and heat up, but then after it cools, it will not ignite again and therefore will not cycle. I have...


The burner valve coils (2 in a kit) need replaced . After electricity goes thru them , they will warm up , causing one of them to "open" (short internally). It will not work again till the coil cools back down . Only 2 screws hold the coil bracket on , so , they are not hard to change .Don't have to turn the gas off but do unplug dryer . The burner valve is located in the front of the dryer by removing the front panel .

Gas dryer , Flame cycles on and off a few times then ignigter glows but flame does not light


Igniter glows, then shuts off without igniting gas - the problem is probably with defective coils (black, located on top of the gas valve). It is recommended to replace all coils (usually two or three) if found defective.

Note: Sometimes the whole gas valve may be defective, thus not letting the gas out. However, this problem is not common.

Dryer has gas smell, whirlpool lgn 2000w gas dryer


Hello Tuna59,
I would strongly encourage you to identify the source of the gas leak as soon as possible. To do this, you can buy a product at most home depot or lowes department stores called SNOOP.. It is in essence..soapy water with a dauber in the cap. You use it by dunking the dauber in the solution and then putting the solution over gas piping joints. If it bubbles up at all..chances are that is where you have a small leak. You may or may not want to tackle that repair yourself since it poses personal risk if you don't know what you are doing. A build up of gas vapor in a confined space is very very dangerous and only needs a small ignition source to explode so please be careful. Probably a good idea to do all your troubleshooting ( if you decide to do this on your own ) with the windows open in that area. Do not use a fan or any other ignition source to move air/gas. Be careful.. and good luck...
Regards,
Rick

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance.
