Could be the ignitor is going bad or more probably one of the solenoids on the gas valve or entire gas valve is bad..

Dryer heat stays on for a few seconds and then


the clicking noise is the gas valve opening,but it isn't firing due to either a bad gas valve boost and secondary coil,a bad thermal fuse,or a bad ignitor bar that glows white hot to ignite the gas,or the radiant senser is weak or bad on the burner tube body

Igniter won't glow


Hi,
I am assuming that everything works OK except you have no heat?
When you turn on dryer listen for gas valve to click(this may take a few seconds).If you don't have a click then the gas valve my be bad or it is not getting power.

Dryer has to be running to check for power only experienced persons should perform machine running power tests.
Let me know If I can do anything else to help.

Whirlpool gas dryer Model #WGD5530SQ0 not heating properly


If your dryer heats when you first turn it on and after a few minutes it does'nt. check the ignitor to see if it is glowing. It should glow bright then you will hear a click and the burner will light. If the ignitor glows bright but you hear a click but no flame and if you watch this for several minutes and this process continues of glow then glow goes out no flame, then you have a bad burner coil. There are 2 black solenoids sitting on top of gas valve. One of them is shorting out after it warms up. Replace both solenoids. You can usually get them as a kit from parts store.

I have a MD7600 maytag dryer. It runs but it will


when you turn it on give it a few minutes and see if you see a glow. that will be the ingnitor.if glowes low or dont see a glow at all then id say you have a bad ignitor. if you see a bright orange glow then id say your gas valve is bad. the ignitor is located next to the gas valve, usually their is a peep hole in the front of the dryer that you pop off (dime size cap) and you can look in hole and see if you see a glow. ignitor price roughly 20-50 dollars. vale can be pricey. 50-145.00 dollars part only. labor ingnitor 75-125 and for valve 85-165 depending on were you live and who you use. usually one or the other not both and seldom a thermostat could be bad.

GE Gas Dryer Model #dbvh512gfoww heat problems


Hi, It sounds like the coils on top the gas valve are bad. If the ignitor glows but shuts off before a flame, the coils need changed.
I hope this helps. If I can assist you further, please let me know.

Thanks

Wont start just cranks over


is it possible that there may be a glow plug problem and the cylinders are not getting the proper temperature requirements thus causing the problem with having to use either your glow plugs may not be cycling properly (this is just an old school guess) good luck write back with feed back
