    I do have power at the blk 18 ga wire from the fabric selector switch, which hooks up to the "thermostat heater", but nothing comes out of that to the orange wire, has 1.6 ohms resistance

Try cleaning or replacing the flame sensor ( optical unit mounted on the side of the burner tube. voltage flows though that optical eye that proves flame.

My Amana DLG330RAW igniter glows orange and a flame is produced initally when starting the dryer but after the flame goes out when the igniter glows orange again (shorter glow time) a flame never occurs...


could have bad gas coils? part 279834 they're located on the top of the gas valve unplug dryer,remove the two pillips screws,lift up the cover and change out the coils,watch out on the three prong coil there's a spacer that you want to stay on the post so when you slide the new coil on the coil it's tight,if the spacer isn't on the post after you remove the old coil look in the old coil and stick anything that will fit and push out the spacer then slide it back on post then install your new coils.also while you're in there get a shop vac and vac up all the lint you see,remove the lint filter and then remove the duct that the filter slides down into and clean that,then set the vac up to blow and blow all the lint from the back forwards and vac that up,make sure you blow the motor off and the gas tube and parts,you should do this at least once a year with gas so you don't have a fire,then go outside and make sure the duct is clear no cages or anything on it,go back inside and remove the vent line from the back of dryer,if it's a long run you can stick a leaf blower into the vent line and blow it out.if you need anymore help let me know.

My Amana DLG330RAW gas dryer isn't heating up. The coil glows bright red for a while, but there is no flame. The coils seemed warm to me the last time I tried running it for a while, but I'd like to know...


Hello there:
Gas Dryers are very complex and there are several facttors involved here to make it heat Here is a list of possiable solutions for you to look at ok
Igniter Modern gas dryers use an electric igniter to ignite the gas from the gas valve. When it's working properly, the igniter glows bright orange. When it burns out, the dryer tumbles but there's no heat because the gas can't ignite. When the igniter burns out, you need to replace it. If the igniter is held by a tension bracket, you very well may need to replace the bracket too. The igniter is inside the dryer housing, near the bottom front, usually in a cone-shaped metal tube (the force cone). It's about 2 inches long. It's mounted to the far end of the burner tube, and it has two wires attached to it--or to the tension bracket, if there is one. Gas valve coils Watch the igniter. Does it glow bright orange, then shut off without igniting the gas? (When the gas ignites there's a large blue flame.) If so, there may be defective coils on the gas valve. Mounted on the top of modern gas valves, there are black electrical coils. The coils, when energized, open the gas valve. If one or more of the coils are defective, the valve doesn't open and the gas cannot ignite. Because it's often difficult to properly test the coils, it's usually best to replace both (all) of them at the same time. Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse to put the dryer back into operation. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.)

I have an Amana gas dryerDLG330RAW that doesn't


I have, for the 2nd time in 2 years, replaced the gas valve coils on my Amana dryer. Usually, intermittent (inconsistent) heat or no heat is caused by bad gas valve coils. They are one of the most common parts to fail and cost between 35 and 40 dollars for a valve coil kit and are easy to replace yourself. Remove the front of the dryer (or the bottom front panel, in some cases) and locate the gas valve. It is near the front, in most cases. There is a plate, held with 2 bolts, holding the coils on top of the gas valve. Remove the bolts and the plate, disconnect the coil wires from each coil and slide the coils off. Then place the new coils on top, hook up the wires, replace the retainer plate, and you should be back in business. Take note of which coil sits on which part of the gas valve. On my dryer, one coil has a 2 prong connector, and the other has 3 prongs. This should make it easy to determine which is which.

Replace the two small round black solenoids located on the gas valvle. I just did it last week. They come in a set and only cost me $26.50. Easiest fix I've done. I was all set to go out and buy a new dryer.

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.
Below is a link to common solutions that will help you with parts and diagnostic procedures that are specifically tuned to your manufacturers data plate information.
It provides exploded view imagery, belt routing diagrams, parts imagery and function, parts ordering and shipping information, error code details, just about anything you need to get your appliance up and running again.

If your dryer doesn't heat, check these:

Igniter
Gas valve coils
Thermal fuse
Igniter Modern gas dryers use an electric igniter to ignite the gas from the gas valve. When it's working properly, the igniter glows bright orange. When it burns out, the dryer tumbles but there's no heat because the gas can't ignite. When the igniter burns out, you need to replace it. If the igniter is held by a tension bracket, you very well may need to replace the bracket too.

The igniter is inside the dryer housing, near the bottom front, usually in a cone-shaped metal tube (the force cone). It's about 2 inches long. It's mounted to the far end of the burner tube, and it has two wires attached to it--or to the tension bracket, if there is one.

Gas valve coils Watch the igniter. Does it glow bright orange, then shut off without igniting the gas? (When the gas ignites there's a large blue flame.) If so, there may be defective coils on the gas valve. Mounted on the top of modern gas valves, there are black electrical coils. The coils, when energized, open the gas valve. If one or more of the coils are defective, the valve doesn't open and the gas cannot ignite. Because it's often difficult to properly test the coils, it's usually best to replace both (all) of them at the same time.

Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing.

If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse to put the dryer back into operation. (You can't re-set this type of fuse.)
