Dryer flame keeps going out


replace the gas valve coils on the top of the gas valve,they get weak and can no longer hold the valve open,then they cool and repeat the same condition,they may appear warm after shutting off,remove 2 screws off bracket holding them on and unplug each coils harness and replace coils,there are plastic pins for getting them in the right position,so its hard to reverse them

Kitchen aid dryer / heat flame not staying on after 20 secs


Sounds like your gas valve is fine, if it comes on at all, its good. A air flow restriction would cause a overheat condition and shut down the burner. Once it cools back down the burner would re-ignite and repeat the cycle. The sensor on the left of the burner is the flame sensor and the flame wouldn't come on at all if it was bad. You've already changed the coil kit so the valve is fine, disconnect the vent from the back of the dryer and see if the problem goes away. If the problem stays, I would suspect the thermostat. Good luck.

My gas dryer, LDG512, only burns gas for 8 secs, then shuts off for 90 secs then heats for 8 secs. Continuouscycle. I replaced High Temp thermostatic, checked vents - no obstruction. Taking +1 hr to dry...


Hi

First check and see if you have 110 volts coming to the gas valve at this type of a connector. If you have voltage, then unplug the dryer and check the parts I have pointed to. Some dryers have 3 coils instead of the 2 shown here. If you do not have voltage coming to the burner, then you will need to check the timer contacts that feed the gas burner, hi limit thermostat, operating thermostats, the safety switch on the motor, and any other point that you can see on your wiring diagram picture that feeds voltage to the burner. The coils on the gas valve are very bad for working once or twice and then quitting. If you find an open circuit on one of the gas coils, replace them all = less problems later on. If the glow coil does not work (get red), check it with an ohm meter for continuity. The next thing to check if the glow coil does not come on would be the radiant sensor. Inspect the igniter for small burnt spot on dark gray or black part of igniter or check for 110 volts to igniter wire plug when dryer should be calling for heat. Sometimes the ( older style ) igniter is separate from the holder and the holder can no longer hold the igniter tight enough and the two parts burn/arc where they touch each other = new igniter and holder ( some manufactures have new kits to replace these older style parts ).
If the igniter gets red and stays red, or you hear a click and it goes off, then a minute later its gets red again then possibly have a bad set of coil valves. If the igniter gets red and stays red constantly then it’s the flame switch that is bad and maybe welded closed.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

Maytag LDG 712 shuts off before clothes are dry.


First, The most common part would be the over limit safety, it will be mounted to the element housing. Second, there is a thermal fuse usually a small disk with a little fuse inside. You can find these (with your model no.) at www.Repairclinic.com .Good luck.

Gas ignites but goes out after 15 or 20 seconds


Hello gdurawa
Welcome to Fixya
My name is Huum,

You said, upon starting my Kenmore gas dryer the igniter glows and the gas ignites, but the gas goes out after 15 or 20 seconds - clothes don't dry.

This means either the igniter is bad and not getting hot enough to make the gas continue to release completely and stay open, so it shut off.
or you have a bad gas module.
Or a bad gas valve without enough pressure.
Needs to be diagnosed hands on at your location .



Thank You For trusting us with your question

Whirlpool Dryer LGQ9508PW0 flame comes on and shuts off after 30 seconds.


this might actually be normal, whats the complaint??? to long to dry clothes maybe 2-3 cycles??? would be a common complaint. in which id check to make sure vent is not clogged anywhere, especially where exiting the home if he venting is ok id replace the coils atop the gas valve, possible and common for that matter that after running for 20-30 min they do not reopen and dont allow flem to reignite... part number 279834 retails for about $20 easy enough repair.... reason for flame to go on and turn off after only 30 secs is that in an empty dryer 30 secs of heat may be enough to satisfy the thermostat, that's alot of heat for an empty dryer, it would remain on for longer with a load of wet clothes absorbing the heat

Not drying


common cause for dryer taking to long to dry, (vent related issue) so long as thats be rectified, the next issue would be to look into replacing the coils atop the burner vale, part number 279834, retail for about $20, easy enough to change. although they appear to open the gas valve initially, after running for 30 min or so they overheat and no longer open the valve, extending dry time.

Heating up..clothes not getting dry just warm and damp


the valve coils??? ifyour burner is firing ,the heat cycle is good, but yes it is possible that the coilsheat up after being on for 20-30 min adn then willl stop opening the valve thus no dry..

279834 set of valve coils, unplug the unit and remove the 2 philips screws holding down the set on the valve, easy repair, cost you about 20 bucks for the set.
UNPLUG UNIT BEFORE SERVICING
