Dryer ignites and flame stays on for 1-2 minutes then shuts off and comes on again a few minutes later


This is most likely caused by faulty gas valve coils. The electrical coils are right above the gas valves and when energized, these solenoids open the gas valves to permit gas flow. A symptom of bad solenoids is a "cycling" condition such as you have described. It is recommended that if any solenoids are suspected of being faulty that they both (all) be replaced at the same time. They will most likely come as a set. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Whirlpool 110.76722690 gas clothes dryer spins but no heat


First, check that the ignitor is working properly. If it is working properly, it should glow an orange color when activated. If the ignitor is defective, it will need replaced. If the ignitor is working properly, the problem is most likely the gas valve coils. These small black coils are situated directly above the gas valves. These solenoids, when energized, open the gas valves and permit the burner to light. If any are defective, the valves cannot open and the burner cannot light. Due to the difficulty in testing these solenoids, it is best to replace both (all) of them at once if they are suspected of being faulty. Hope this helped and best wishes.

My dryer doesnt get hot


With gas bills so outrageously high these days, you deserve a medal for being able to keep current! lol Let's see what we can do about the dryer. First, check that the ignitor is working. It should glow an orange color if it is working. If the ignitor seems to be working properly, then I would suspect faulty gas valve coils. These are solenoids located directly above the gas valves, that when energized, open the valves and permit gas to flow to the burner. If the solenoids are faulty, the gas valves won't open and the burner cannot light. Due to the difficulty in testing these solenoids, it is best to replace both (all) of them at once if any are suspected of being faulty. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Whilpool dryer m#ggw9868k02 ignitor glows but no flame


If the ignitor is working properly, the problem most likely lies with the gas valve coils. They are located just above the gas valves. These solenoids, when energized, open the gas valves and allow the burner to light. Since these solenoids are hard to test, if any are suspected of being faulty, it is best to replace both (all) of them at the same time. Hope this helped and best wishes.

My gas dryer won't heat but will run it's a duet and i changed the glow plug or igniter


Since you replaced the ignitor and if it is operating normally, it should glow visibly. If the ignitor is operating properly and the burner is not lighting, then I would look at faulty gas valve coils as being the problem. The coils are located right above the gas valves. These solenoids, when energized, open the gas valves. If they are faulty, the gas valves won't open and the burner won't light. Due to the difficulty in testing these coils, it is best when replacing them to replace both (all) of them at once. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Dryer motor works but will not heat. Dryer is gas


First, check to see that the ignitor is operating properly. It should glow orange if it is heating up. If the ignitor is ok, then look at the gas valve coils. These coils are right above the gas valves and when these solenoids are energized, they open the gas valves. If the coils are faulty, it cannot open the valves and so the gas cannot ignite. If they are faulty, and due to the difficulty in testing them, it is best to replace both (all) of them at the same time. Sure hope this helped and best wishes.

Our dryer burner is not working. Drum turns, but no heat


The problem is most likely the gas valve coils. If the ignitor is glowing, but the burner won't light, I would look at the coils. The gas valve coils are black electrical coils that are right above the gas valves. These solenoids, when energized, open the gas valves. When they go bad, the gas valves are not opened and the burner cannot ignite. They are hard to test and it is best to replace both (all) of them at the same time. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Dryer not heating, replaced igniter, told by repairmen to check inline fuse but we cannot find it, model LGR7620LW0, also curious if flame sensor could be defective


The first thing to look at would be the thermal fuse. It is usually mounted on the exhaust duct at rear of dryer. It's about one inch long. You can test it for continuity with a multimeter. If it has no continuity, it is bad and needs replaced. If the ignitor is glowing, but the gas isn't igniting, I would look next at the gas valve coils. They are right above the gas valves. They are solenoids that, when energized, open the gas valves. If the thermal fuse is not the problem, then I would look at the coils. It is hard to test them, so it is best to replace both (all) of them at the same time. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Dryer worked well until recently. Igniter glows


I would take a look at the gas coil solenoids. The gas coils are right above the gas valves. They are black electrical coils. When energized, the coils open the gas valves. If one or more of the coils is defective (bad solenoids), then the gas valves won't open and the gas cannot ignite. Because it's difficult to test the coils, it is best to replace both (all) of them at the same time. Sure hope this helped and best wishes.
