Question about KitchenAid KGYS850LT Gas Dryer
Kitchenaid model kgys850GQ1
When the dryer is cold the heater flame will ignite (as normal) looks like solenoids are working. It appears that once the dryer gets to a certain temp the gas will shut off and the flame goes out. The igniter will occasionally heat up (glow) but the gas does not turn on to start the flame. This repeats itself until the dryer has cooled down again then starts working again (I am not sure to what temp). I have disassembled the entire dryer and cleaned every inch of the dryer and the exhaust tube to the outside. Any ideas what the problem is?
The heating circuit is working perfectly except for the solenoid coils as indicated by the occasional glowing of the igniter but no gas is ignited. A gas valve closes as the solenoid coil weakens as it gets hot and does not open until it has cooled down. Replace both gas valve solenoid coils to get the dryer back into proper operation. The solenoid coils are part numbers 694539 and 694540 but also can be purchased as a kit here.
