The symptom you have indicates weak solenoid coils. The gas valve should open and the burner should ignite every time the glow bar igniter glows before it fades back off. Weak solenoid coils will usually open the gas valve until the solenoids become hot from the current and flame and then they don't have enough power to open the gas valve.

Replace both solenoid coils and your dryer will most heat and operate normally again. In order to access and replace the solenoid coils you will need to remove the front panel.

Here is the coil kit to order.

Sg7800 maytag dryer stopped giving heat


Sounds like burner not igniting. On front of dryer in the lower right there should be a gas valve/burner access panel. Usually you just have to pry out at bottom of panel & swing out and up to remove. This gives you access to valve coils and igniter. With panel removed set timer for heated dry and start dryer, observing first the igniter which should glow bright orange-red, then after a couple seconds you should hear a "Click" which is gas valve opening and a blue flame ignites for heat. If no glow is seen after a few seconds or at least a minute, igniter is bad, if it does glow and no click is heard from the gas valve, the coils (electro magnets) on the valve are bad, or the "Flame present" sensor is bad. Chances are it's either the coils or igniter.Try this on all heat settings, if you get heat at only one setting it might be in timer contacts, but not common. Again you can repair/replace both the igniter (usually just plugs into a receptical) and the coils (2 donut looking objects on the gas valve, replace both.) Access door may be on back if not on front, but normally their on lower right of front.

Coil replacement


I'm not an expert but assuming you ordered the coils for your dryer your dryer must have them. I just finshed repairing my kenmore gas dryer after about 10 minutes the gas would shut off. This is becasue the coils that are on top of the gas line before the ignigter were defective. The coils control the gas valve and when my dryer got hot the coil being defective would close the valve. There are 2 coils a 2 prong and a 3 prong. Remove the front panel to gain access to the bottom of the dryer from there you will see your coils about as round as a quarter and 10 or so high. unscrew the screws holding down the retainer and undue the electrical clip. reverse for the install. good luck!

Hi i have a whirpool gas dryer that all works fine but after about five minutes the heat will stop and it will just blow cool air. I can stop it and restart and everything starts and works fine and after...


The gas valve coils are closing the valve or the flame sensor is defective. The coils are the most common problem.
There are 2 on top of the gas valve. Turn off the gas and power. Remove the front panel by opening the top lid and then remove the screws from inside the front panel in the top right and left corners.

My dryer doesn't produce heat. the coil ignites


It's likely one of the coils is opening a break in the coil as the coil heats up. This coil will shrink when cool and be able to run again. In your machine, it appears Amana doesn't sell the coils as a separate item and the whole valve needs to be replaced. The part number is Y504091.

Disconnect power and turn off gas before working on this dryer. Working on gas dryers is not recommended for people who are not professionals.

Service on gas appliances should be undertaken by professionals only due to the danger of gas leakage which can cause fires or death by asphyxiation.

At front, remove 2 screws near floor at the bottom of the lower front panel. Pull bottom of panel toward you and down. The gas valve should now be accessible on the left. Take care not to touch or hit the ignitor or you will be replacing it also. It is VERY brittle.


Reverse process to re-assemble.

Dryer not heating up


Hi, If the dryer stops heating later in the cycle, it is most likely the coils on top of the gas valve. It is a very common issue with the gas dryer.
Here is how to change the coils
UNPLUG the dryer. This model you need to remove the two screws under the lint screen. Now use a flat blade screw drive and insert it in the gap between the top and the front panel and pry the top up. Now locate and remove the screws on the inside of the front panel in upper corners. The front should lift off. You will see the two black coils on the gas valve. When you remove the three wire coil, make sure the sleeve inside it gets put back on the post the coils slides onto.
If I can assist you further, please let me know.

Thanks

Gas dryer will not stay warm for long


Hi, You will need to replace the coils on top of the gas valve.
There is a small plastic cap that you can remove in the lower front panel. Start the dryer and see if the ignitor glows and shuts off before the gas ignites. If this is the case, the coils need replaced. This is a very common issue with the gas dryer.

Blowing cold air


Hi, UNPLUG the dryer! Remove the rear panel of the dryer and locate the fuse. It is white and ¼” wide and 3” long. It is located on the blower housing. Remove the wires and check to see if it has continuity. If it does not, you need to replace it.
If the fuse is ok, remove the small access cap in the front lower corner and start the dryer. Look and see if the igintor glows. If it glows and doesn't light the burner, change the coils on top of the gas valve. Here is how:

Kenmore Serios 80 Gas Dryer - Replacing Gas Valve Coils


I haven't done coils in a while, You will need to remove the top and front panel to access the coils. The top should have catches that allow you to grasp the top by the back corners and pull forward slightly releasing the catch for left an right sides, other will have to have the top console removed to reveal 3 hex screw to pull the top off. Once done get a 5/16 and remove two hex screws left and right on the inside edges holding the front on, also unplug the harness to the door switch, by now the machine should be unplugged. the coils have a flange over them held on by some phillip screws. the orifice is preset so dont mess with adjustments, they should pop out and pop in
