TGDX64OEQ1 Gas Estate Dryer

When I start the dryer everything looks great. Drum turns and flame kicks in and starts drying clothes. After about 10 minutes it shuts off. It will not start back up. If you wait about 10 minutes it will start back up again. But then it will only run about 1 or 2 minutes before shutting down again. I took the back panel off and cleaned the inside out, so there was alot of lint inside, that is all cleaned out now. But still get the same problem. Any ideas on this fix. Thanks in Advance.

Sounds like the hi-limit temp switch is sensing too high a temperature and is shutting off the dryer. This is a safety feature and is usually tripped because the outlet air flow is restricted, and resets itself after it has cooled down. Check to see whether the rest of the vent in your house is clogged and clean it. It could also be an inlet fan or blower which introduces air into the drum. If this is not working, there will be no air flow into the dryer, causing excessive heat in the non-moving air in the dryer.

Ge gas dryer heats but doesnt dry


if the flame is lighting you have lint blocking the air flow either in the dryer or in the vent line,also if you have a flame for the first 10 to 20 minutes and then the flame doesn't light you have bad gas coils located on top of the gas valve,when the coils are bad they can work for the first 10 to 20 minutes until the coils get hot and then they fail and you'll see the ignitor glowing orange but no flame,bad gas coils.then when the coils cool down they can work again.hope this helps.you can try removing the vent line from the back of the dryer and see if the flame stays on,if lint is blocking the air from blowing out the flame won't stay lit long enough to dry the clothes.

The dryer is started and the flame starts to dry the clothes. The dryer runs for about 10 minutes then the flame goes out. The dryer continues to run but the flame is out and does not turn back on. ...


Remove the entire venting system and thoroughly clean the lint out. This does cause this problem you have for no heat after running for a few minutes

Dryer turns on, tumbles the drum but does not ignite the gas unit to heat and dry clothes


Check the ignitor underneath the drum. (You have to open the panel to see it) It should glow shortly after the dryer starts, then the flame starts and the ignitor shuts off. If the ignitor does not glow then it or the thermostat is bad. If the ignitor is glowing but the gas does not light then the flame sensor may have to be replaced. If the gas ignites but does not stay on either the flame sensor or the coils are at fault.

If everything above is OK then the thermostat2.gif or the auto sensor is not working correctly.

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.

Clothes not drying properly


Consider a blocked air flow/vent problem or bad gas valve selonoids. Important to check outside vent door if present to make sure it is opening all the way. If not the dryer goes off on thermal overload. If vent is clear consider selonoids located on top of gas valve held in place with 2 philip head screws. One has a two prong electrical plug and the other has a three. Last check Lp tank for gas. Thank you
