Bosch Axxis WTE86300US turns itself off after ten minutes, won't turn back on for a few minutes after that


I would bet you have a bad sensor. There are a couple of sensors that monitor heat. When it gets too hot they shut it down as a safety precaution. Once it is cool enough it will start up again.

Roper rgx5634kq2 gas dryer. Starts out lighting like it should. It runs for a minute or two then flame goes out, then after a minute it comes back on. It will do this cycle a few times and then it will...


it's not the thermal fuse,the dryer wouldn't run and the ignitor wouldn't glow.sounds like you have bad gas coils,if the dryer runs for the first 15 to 30 minutes normally and then no more flame the coils are failing,when they are bad they work until they heat up and then nothing,when they cool down they work again,common problem,also you should clean out the dryer once a year ,clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,if your vent line is long take it off from the back of the dryer and blow it out with a leaf blower,make sure the outside vent is clear first,you can have a fire and then you can pop the thermal fuse,clean it and your clothes will dry on time,let me know what you find

When the dryer is cold the heater flame will


The heating circuit is working perfectly except for the solenoid coils as indicated by the occasional glowing of the igniter but no gas is ignited. A gas valve closes as the solenoid coil weakens as it gets hot and does not open until it has cooled down. Replace both gas valve solenoid coils to get the dryer back into proper operation. The solenoid coils are part numbers 694539 and 694540 but also can be purchased as a kit here.

Hotpoint nvl333gyoww gas dryer heats for a few minutes, then no heat. Seals appear fine, door latch appears fine, not sure what it could be - suggestions? Thanks.


here are a few reasons that you will get heat for a few min and then no heat.

1. if the vent is cloged, anywhere in the flexable hose to the wall or from the wall to outside. If the vent is cloged the flame in the unit will widen and the thermostat hi limit will shut she burner off untill it cools.
2. The coils for the burner could be bad and will allow the burner to light a couple of cycles and then will get hot and internaly disconect the coil untill it cools down and then will repeat and will get worse over time.

The good news :) The ignitor is good if it lights a flame, If the flame burns for more that 10 sec then the flame switch is mostlikley good. The main valve in most cases will also be good.

My whirlpool dryer heat does not stay on. when i first start it , its hot then the heat turns off. it continues going with no heat


With the limited information you gave I will assume this is a gas dryer that the flame starts for a minute or so and then shuts off. This problem is going to be your safety valve coils...basically they get old and over time of heating then cooling develop a short when they heat up...It may appear the gas lights to start but then goes out until the safety valve coils cool back down. Here is a picture of the coils 57d5263.jpgThis The coils are mounted to the gas safety valve, This should solve your problem. Hope this helps, Please feel free to comment again if you have any further questions or concerns. Good Luck! Mike

LG GAS DRYER NOT LIGHTING THE SECOND TIME AFTER COLD START. IGNITOR COMES ON: SENSOR SEES IT IS HOT ENOUGH AND GAS VALVE OPENS. FLAME COMES ON THEN GOES OFF WHEN TEMP IS REACHED BUT WHEN DEMAND FOR THE...


If your vent is clear (strong flow of air at vent outlet outside) then you have a bad gas valve. I have seen this a few times on LG gas dryers. You really only need one of the coils on the gas valve, but they are not available individually. You have to get the entire valve.
