On a gas dryer the heat normally only comes on for 30 seconds or until the drum temp reaches 160f at which time the flame is shut down by the cycling thermostat. The drum temp then starts to drop. When the drum temp reaches 105f then another blast of heat is issued for 30 more seconds.That is how they work. Put it all back together and trow a load in there.

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.

You might want to replace the thermacouplar. Sometimes when they are going out , all will appear to be alright but as you stated it takes a long time for the flame to come back on. This sounds to me like the thermacouplar is going out.

Flame shuts off after five seconds


HI! I BELIEVE THE PROBLEM YOU ARE HAVING IS CAUSED BY A PART CALLED THE THERMOCOUPLER. THIS IS A SAFETY DEVICE THAT SHUTS OFF THE GAS IF THE FLAME GOES OUT, BUT IT NEEDS HEAT TO MAINTAIN THE PROPER CIRCUIT. THIS MEANS THAT THE THERMOCOUPLER IS BAD AND NOT HOLDING THE GAS VALVE OPEN AS IT SHOULD. IT IS A SMALL THIN ROD TYPE THING THAT WILL BE VERY CLOSE TO THE PILOT OR IGNITER AND IT HAS TO FUNCTION PROPERLY TO ALLOW THE GAS TO CONTINUE TO FLOW. WHAT IT IS DOING IS GETTING JUST WARM ENOUGH TO OPEN THE GAS VALVE, BUT THEN THE IGNITER STOPS AND THE BAD THERMOCOUPLER COOLS AND TURNS YOUR GAS OFF. YOU NEED TO REPLACE THE THERMOCOUPLER AND YOU SHOULD BE BACK TO WARM CLOTHES IN NO TIME. HOPE THIS HELPS YOU. ANY QUESTIONS, JUST REPLY AND I'LL HELP MORE.
