Question about Amana Dryers

1 Answer

I Have an Amana gas dryer Mod-NDG8805AWW that only intermittently works. I took it apart to clean it and to observe the operation. The ignitor will light up, but the gas valve doesn't send gas through but maybe 1 in 20 -25 times you run it

Ignitor works, lights the gas, then when the ignitor goes off, so does the flame.


Hi Stanley,
the problem with the dryer flame going out is caused by defective coils on the gas valve and the gas valve coils should be replaced

I have a model LGA30AL gas dryer. It will start up occasionally but will only stay lit for a short time. I have already replaced the Igniter. And found a small leak in gas line. I replaced that also. What...


The gas assembly consists of: The ignitor, the flame sensor, and the solenoid coils. The ignitor and flame sensor are either going to be good or bad no in between. The only thin in there that can get intermittent is them solenoids. They get hot and quit but after a long while they cool back down and work another time. themobilian_2450.jpg

I have a AMANA gas dryer model LGA80AW and it is not heating. I took the front panel off cleaned the lint from within the cabinet and exhaust pipe. What I've noticed is that the starter comes on and lights...


When you say "starter" I assume you are talking about the "ignitor" and it is glowing.If the ignitor stays glowing continuously then the radiant heat sensor, normally closed, is not opening OR if the ignitor lights up than turns off after about 10 seconds but no flame, then the coils (doesn't matter which one of the two) are bad. The coils are located on top of the gas valve and the radiant sensor is located on the side of the burner chute....Good Luck

Dryer shuts off during drying operation and fails to restart.


reach inside and turn the drum. If it ain't easy as pie to turn then something is casing the motor to get hot and quit.Check slides and rollers.
