I would suspect faulty gas valve coils. These electrical coils are right above the gas valves and when energized these solenoids open the gas valves to permit gas flow to the burner. It's recommended that if any are suspected of being faulty that both (all) be replaced at the same time. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Dryer not heating


If your dryer won\'t heat up the first thing to do is clean out the vent from the back of your dryer up to the roof. (or where ever your vent leads to). You will have to clean it our from both ends. Use a vacuum cleaner that has the ability to switch and BLOW air rather than suck air to blow it through. This usually fixes the problem because there is no air flow and it takes HOURS to dry. If that doesn\'t work then look at the back of your dryer. MAKE SURE IT IS UNPLUGGED IN EVERY EVENT! Then disconnect the wires one at a time and clean and reconnect to make sure you have a good solid connection. Plug back in and see how if it works.

Whirlpool Duet: GGW9200lq0 Dryer Works, No HEAT runs fine but has no heat... vent is clear


This happened to me. Turned out it was a gas valve fracture which had to be replaced by the gas company. That's if you have a gas dryer

Whirlpool Model LGN2000KQ0 ignighter glows, flame turns on for a few minutes then it goes out and the ignighter never glows again nor does the flame return


The problem is the dryer coils have failed. They tend to fail as they heat up. They are inexpensive and easy to replace. Here is a link that should help troubleshooting a gas dryer

Dryer Ignitor turns on then back off with no flames afterwards


the government mandated that gas appliances start using electronic ignighters because pilot lights would keep blowing gas even after they blew out now the way they work is calibrated on how much amps the glow bar draws the rest of the amps go to the safety valve to open it when the glow bar is drawing enough amps to be hot enough to ignite the gas now what this means is even though the glow bar glows it can still not be hot enough to ig night the gas so the safety valves don't get the right amps to the solenoids to open so you could have a weak ignighter or bad solenoids on the safety valves now i would lean toward the solenoids but i would buy both and first replace the solenoids then the ignighter if the solenoids work take the ignighter back
