Whirlpool dryer heating sporadically?


Remove the lower front panel and turn dryer on. The ignitor should glow bright orange first. After Ignitor glows brightly the next thing will be the flame lighting as the gas valve opens with a click. All this should happen within about a minute or so.

If flame comes on but goes off quickly It's likely one of the Gas valve coils is opening a break in the coil as the coil heats up. This coil will shrink when cool and be able to run again. The coils are purchased as a kit.

If ignitor goes off and no flame comes on the coil kit is likely needed because one coil is fully broken inside its case. If flame goes on but shuts off shortly the problem is as described above and the kit is needed.

There is a flame safety assembly on the can above the burner. If the airflow is poor. the flame tip may activate that safety and turn the flame off. Or the flame switch may be open and not allow the flame to come on at all.

The Flame switch can be tested for continuity with an ohmeter but the valves may ONLY show bad with power applied and can not be tested with a meter as they will test good.. Good Luck

I have a GE gas dryer DBVH512GF1WW. The heat is inconsistent. I noticed the ignitor glowing and then a flame shortly after on the initial time I turned the dryer on. Then after the flame going out after...


sounds like bad gas coils located on top of the gas valve,when the coils start to fail the ignitor will glow,the coils let the gas in until the coils heat up and then ignitor glows but no gas.when the coils cool down they might work again for a short time until they heat up and fail again.if the flame lights and goes out after like 30 seconds and goes out and keeps doing this you have a block either in the dryer or the vent line but it sounds like you have bad gas coils.unplug the dryer,get at the valve,pull off the wires going to the coils and check them with a meter,one should be open,just remove the two phillips screws pull off the cover and slide the coils up off of the posts,unplug them and put the new coils on,you'll see like a little piece of plastic on the top of the coils,this fits intoo the cover so they line up correctly and holds them in place,also on the larger coil there's a spacer on the post,if you don't see it look inside the old coil,poke out the spacer and slide it onto the post and then install the coil.

Whirlpool Cabrio Gas Dryer. Will heat for a short time then stops. usually gets stuck around the seven minute mark and wont move from there. Cothes are soaked. I checked all internal parts with multimeter...


Hello,
If what happens is the flame comes on when it first starts,after the flame goes off you see the igniter glows then goes off but no flame,the coils that open the gas valve are working while thier cool but once thedryer gets running,when warm to hot the gas valve coils wont open the gas valve so when the igniter comes on and no flame the coils have failed to open gas valve and need to be replaced, all manufactures use the same coil supplied by one parts supplier, and them not opening the valve when warm is a very common occurence regardless of what brand gas dryer it is.
The part number for the coils is 279834 they could be picked up from your local appliance parts store for under $20 or online at;

Intermittant heating.It will begin to glow....sometimes the flames shoot out for a short time....but then go out. Then, it will continue to glow red without flames igniting,then goes dim....couple minutes...


This is usually caused by faulty coils on the heat valve. they can be purchased seperate from the gas valve and are relatively easy to install..

No Heat. Burner shuts down after a minute or so.


You will find a limiter usually on top of the burner with two wires going to it thast needs to be replaced. to check it jump the wires and start the dryer be sure to tape the wires to b prevent a short, Thats almost always i. also check the two coils on the burner ussualy the first burner.

When started, the dryer works normally. Then the


Good day,
This is a common problem. The gas valve has 2 black coils mounted to the top. One has partially shorted.
You need to replace the coils as a kit.
Remove both wire plugs, remove the 2 screws holding the coils in place, and lift off.

The clip I've included does not apply to repairing the coil kit, but does show you how to access the area. It is a Whirlpool product.

Dryer ignites, then flame goe out, goo air leaving


If the gas ignites but does not stay on the gas valve secondary coil is at fault. Replacement kit includes both coils prewired. Note wire connections to original before removing as replacement kit may have different wire colors.

My Kenmore Elite Dryer 110.72066102 starts, the igniter come on, flame comes on runs for a short period of time, flame goes out, and igniter comes on again but no flame.


Hello Friend, Your problem is very simple to fix. You're dryer needs a gas valve coil kit. To replace coils just remove front of dryer body and look below drum you will see the gas valve. The valve coils are located on top of valve (two little round black cylinders). It's simple, just remove the two screws from the little metal bracket that holds them down, unplug the wires from them and just lift them straight up off of the valve. Take notice that one has 3 wires and one has 2 wires. Just replace with new coils and plug wires back in and re-fasten metal bracket. Your dryer will run like new. Happy to help, Tim. And please don't forget to give me your rating for my help.

Dryer runs-no heat


I had a problem once with a gas dryer that would come on, the pilot would glow and the flame would run on a shortend cycle. The coil that opens the gas valve had a short circuit that would only short out when it heated up. It would drive me crazy since it appeared to be working. The short cycle time the first time, and then maybe not at all once it was warm gave me mixed signals.

Intermitten Heat up


make sure that your vent is not plug up can you go outside your house and feel good air coming out the vent when the dryer is turn on if so the only other things it could be is the coils that sit on the ignotor assmebly or the high limit termistat is not working properly the coils are little black circle coils that sit in the ignitor assmly should have a metal braket across the top of them holding them in you can check resistance on these coils if you have an meter
