Dryer won't heat

I have a White Westinghouse gas dryer model dg4000axw1. When it first goes on, it ignites and a flame lights.It does this for one or two cycles but after about 15 min. it doesn't light anymore and will make a loud noise. People tell me it's the coils but I don't want to buy parts that are wrong.

Hi

Please check things that could stop a gas dryer from heating:
- glow bar igniter, thermal fuse ( not all models ), coils on the gas valve, gas valve, thermostats, motor heat switch, timer, selector switch, sensor.

Please do rate the solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

Sounds like the dryer coils are failing. The dryer may heat up in the beginning but once it runs for a few minutes the coils fail to open and let gas in. Check to see if you can hear the flame ignite after it has been running for a little while.

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.
