    My Amana Gas Dryer wouldn't heat when turned on, then it would heat, then it wouldn't. I called the local appliance parts store and they said the problem was the 2 coils. I purchased the coils ($29.98) installed them and the same problem occurs. When I start the dryer and observe the ignitor, it glows and all is well. When I shut the dryer off for a minute or two and restart it, the ingitor does not glow hence no heat. Is it possible that the ignitor can be "going bad"? I thought that when the cerimac ignitor goes out, it's out.

You can remove the lower acess panel (2) 5/16 screws along bottom. youll get a good view of workings there. turn on dryer (make sure a heat cycle is selected. you should see the ignitor light with in a few secs. if not unplug the ignitor(small white connector maybe 6inhes back from ignitor itself) and with a meter ck for 110v in that connection when unit is turned on, if you do have 110volts , you hav abad ignitor. ifyou dont get 110 volts you need to check the thermostat(s) located on top of the heater box right above the ignitor, if no continuity you need a new thermo.

My gas dryer doesn't heat very well, if at all. Do I need to replace parts or are there ways do check and clean parts.


First i would clean the dryer vent. If the vent is clogged then the dryer cannot circulated the air inside the dryer. This will cause long dry times. If the dryer heats at first then doesnt heat anymore after about 10 min you probably need new coils

I turn on my drier and the coil heats up the gas comes on only sometimes then the gas shuts off shortly afterwards. Then i try to restart it the coil turns red with no gas.


The dryer coils have failed. They tend to fail as they heat up. They are inexpensive and easy to replace. Here is a video at this will walk you thru troubleshooting a gas dryer.

Amana ALG443RAW Gas Control


On a gas dryer gas is flowing "TO" the gas valve all the time.
It does not flow "PAST" the gas valve unless the gas valve opens and the burner is lit. This is based on other components working correctly.
If other components fail the gas does not flow past it.
