Gas valve coils. There are 2 on the top of the gas valve,about $20 for the set.
Remove the front panel and the drum to access the gas valve. Turn off the gas and unplug the dryer.
Pay attention to the coil orientation on the valve.

Check the thermocouple it is going bad or already has and that is why the gas valve is not staying open.

A gas dryer uses a electric igniter that glows orange to light the gas burner. If the igniter does not glow orange when the dryer is started..replace it.

Have a Maytag gas dryer, model#:LDG7314AAE serial#:16068237QF, and the flame will not stay lit. It warms up ignites and then after 15 to 30 seconds it shuts off. It repeats the cycle but the flame stays...


Did you change the igniter, or glow coil as it is sometimes called? If it is orange in colour instead of white it needs to be replaced as it is not strong enough to ignite and stay lit. Hope this helps.

Sears kenmore gas dryer 417.92052101does not stay lit.


Watch the burner assembly, shortly after starting the dryer the ignitor should begin to glow. If it glows for several seconds (up to 15 seconds) and then goes out, then the problem is probably the solenoids (coils). If the ignitor glows and stays on, then the problem is usually the flame sensor.

Flame goes out in 15 seconds


check these: Igniter Modern gas dryers use an electric igniter to ignite the gas from the gas valve. When it's working properly, the igniter glows bright orange. When it burns out, the dryer tumbles but there's no heat because the gas can't ignite. When the igniter burns out, you need to replace it. If the igniter is held by a tension bracket, you very well may need to replace the bracket too.

The igniter is inside the dryer housing, near the bottom front, usually in a cone-shaped metal tube (the force cone). It's about 2 inches long. It's mounted to the far end of the burner tube, and it has two wires attached to it--or to the tension bracket, if there is one.

Gas valve coils Watch the igniter. Does it glow bright orange, then shut off without igniting the gas? (When the gas ignites there's a large blue flame.) If so, there may be defective coils on the gas valve. Mounted on the top of modern gas valves, there are black electrical coils. The coils, when energized, open the gas valve. If one or more of the coils are defective, the valve doesn't open and the gas cannot ignite. Because it's often difficult to properly test the coils, it's usually best to replace both (all) of them at the same time.

Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing.

If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse to put the dryer back into operation. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.)
