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. And please don't forget to give me your rating for my help. Thanks

Furnace lights and in about 2 to 5 mins. the flame shuts down. the furnace trys to relight but does not. the unit trips out and the light flashes 1 time to show to many times tryin to light


Probably a filthy flame sensor. You can clean it off with steel wool or light sand paper. This should do it for you. If this does not work I would suspect a gas valve that is failing and dropping out after a few minutes. Always remember to change the filter while you are at it. Good Luck :)

80 series kenmore gas dryer. Won't dry clothes. Igniter glows, gas valve opens, flame lights. Stays on for about 45 seconds then flame shuts off. About 1 minute later it lights again but it doesn't stay on...


Did you get a solution yet? - our dryer is doing the same exact thing....last time it was not lighting at all and we found out it was the thermal fuse - very cheap fix...this time the symptoms are exactly as you described.

Kenmore no flame


Is this the scenario? It lights for a few cycles or maybe not at all. The ignitor glows and goes out but no flame. Comes back on then does the same thing. If so it could be failing coils (those two black cylinders on top of the gas valve assembly). There's a kit that includes both and it's a fairly simple job.
