Question about Dryers
I have same problem. I followed all the steps and found that the fire starts and works for about 2 to 4 mins and it shuts off automatically but the dryer still running with no fire. What could be wrong? Please let me know and would love to buy parts if possible. Thanks

Hi, the most common cause for the dryer not to heat is the fuse. Here is how to check it
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.
Please let me know if this help or if I can assist you further.
If the dryer heats at first start up and then quits heating later in cycle, the coils on the gas valve are most likely bad. Here is how to change the coils,
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.
If I can assist you further, please let me know.
