Dryer starts but flame extinguishes after a few seconds

Model SDG515DAWW The dryer and flame start off working but flame extinguishes after a few seconds. when I try to restart the dryer the igniter glows but there is no ignition. The gas supply from the house is fine. Does the valve go bad on this model ? or is it a sensor ? I'm trying not to replace the whole system by poke and hope Thanks

The flame sensor should be OK since the flame starts. (It senses that the glow plug is on to start the gas.) The problem is probably the secondary coil on the gas valve assembly. There is a kit available to replace the coils and it is not difficult or expensive.

Dryer not drying


First thing to check is the vent. Make sure you have sufficient air flow to the outside. If you are not sure if you have the proper rate of flow, disconnect the vent from the dryer, turn dryer on and see if burner stays on longer. Do this with a couple of damp, spun-dry towels inside the drum. If the burner short cycles again, you need to replace the coils on top of the burner assembly. These are the two black round coils.

Inglis Gas Dryer Does not heat up at all, No spark, no flame


When you start the dryer , after a few seconds do you hear a distinct click sound from inside the bottom of the dryer at the burner assembly? If you do not, you most likely have a bad thermal fuse, part# 3392519 or 3390719, depending on your dryer. Its the same fuse just different shape, both will work. This is most likely your problem. If you do hear a click, you may have a bad ignitor. Best way to test is to check for 120 at the ignitor. If you have anymore questions or need parts feel free to ask in my forum at www.washermd.com, thanks, Dave
