Question about Dryers
Whirlpool gas dryer Model #WGD5530SQ0
I just changed timer due to burner only running for 3 minutes then not working again but glow comes on for a few seconds. After installing new timer ran dryer for 20 minutes no problems put a load in it and now it does the same thing as before. what else could it be? Thanks. PS timer was a suggestion by Whirlpool.
If your dryer heats when you first turn it on and after a few minutes it does'nt. check the ignitor to see if it is glowing. It should glow bright then you will hear a click and the burner will light. If the ignitor glows bright but you hear a click but no flame and if you watch this for several minutes and this process continues of glow then glow goes out no flame, then you have a bad burner coil. There are 2 black solenoids sitting on top of gas valve. One of them is shorting out after it warms up. Replace both solenoids. You can usually get them as a kit from parts store.
