Dcvh515: dryer does not heat. Replaced the ignitor. Still no good

I replaced the ignitor. Currently the flame will light and burn for about two minutes. In about another two minutes the ignitor begins to glow but the flame does not start.

May Tag Gas Dryer Model MDG3000AWW - Dry works but no heat, more dry/ less dry lights flashing. Whats wrong? How do I get heat again?


it is either your glow coil or it is your ignitor
open the door and remove the four screws
take the front panel off.
leave the door attached so you can test the dryer
be very careful not to touch any wires while you are doing this
now close the door and turn the dryer on
does the ignitor turn on?
if yes that is good
does the ignitor glow and no flame?
sometimes it will take a minute to show it's problem
if the ignitor glows and no flame replace your ignitor coils
make sure to turn the power off when replaceing the coils

Mdg 4000aww turns on and heats when started. runs for 5 five minutes then flame goes out. ignitor glows but no flame. one minute later dryer still running ignitor glows, no flame. this repaets until turned...


Either the venting needs cleaned or the coils on the gas valve are bad. Unhook the venting from the back of the unit and run. If works ok then clean venting. If you still have the problem, replace the two coils on top of the gas valve.

Replace the gas valve coils if the ignitor glows but does not light. Replace the flame sensor if the ignitor does not glow.

Glow coil glows but wo'nt ignite burner. can


if you have used the self clean function you may have burned up the ignitor they are rated for about 1000 deg for just about a minute but when you clean it stays around 800-900 deg for about an hour or so. You may just need to replace the ceramic ignitor. as for the gas, the valve will only stay open for a few seconds, if the oven doesnt recognize a flame the gas valve will close.

Lights once then not again


Hot Surface ('Glow Bar') Ignition System glow-amin.60x20.gif (most common)
This is the most popular system currently in use and is comprised of a control mechanism (whether thermostat or electronic control), the oven ignitor and an oven gas valve. What happens in this style control system is that the thermostat or electronic control supplies power to the oven ignitor and gas valve which are connected in series (one after the other). As power flows through the ignitor it heats and allows a specific amount of current to flow to the oven valve which is in the same circuit. If the oven valve senses the proper current flow, it opens to allow gas to flow to the oven burner where the glowing hot ignitor (glow bar) ignites it.

Sears kenmore gas dryer 417.92052101does not stay lit.


Watch the burner assembly, shortly after starting the dryer the ignitor should begin to glow. If it glows for several seconds (up to 15 seconds) and then goes out, then the problem is probably the solenoids (coils). If the ignitor glows and stays on, then the problem is usually the flame sensor.

My dryr tumbles but does not dry


Gas dryer? First thing to check is the ignitor underneath the drum. (You have to open the panel to see it)  It should glow shortly after the dryer starts, then the flame starts and the ignitor shuts off.  If the ignitor is glowing but the gas does not light then the gas valve coils may have to be replaced.  If the gas ignites but does not stay on either the flame sensor or the coils are at fault.

Electric dryer? Temperature sensor has failed or heating element has burned out.

How do you light pilot light?


Dryer does not have pilot light.  There is an ignitor that glows when the dryer is started and lights the flame when the gas begins to flow.  With the front of the dryer off start it up and look for the glow. when it glows hot enough (or on a newer model it might be a spark) the gas should ignite.  When the flame sensor sees that the gas is ignited it shuts off the ignitor and keeps the gas valve open until the temperature sensor gets high and shuts it off.  When the temp sensor cools down the cycle repeats.
If no glow or spark-->bad ignitor If no gas flow-->bad flame sensor or bad gas valve coil If gas comes on and goes off quickly-->lint filter and/or vent pipe or outlet may be clogged or bad flame sensor.

Dryer Ignitor


yes its right on the money it takes about 30 seconds for the ignighter to reach enough tempeture to open the safety valve this assures that the ignighter is hot enough to instantly ignite the gas before the safety valve will release it
