Question about Dryers
The way that gas assembly work is power from a cold klixon mounted on the blower housing goes to the gas assembly. All of the coils the ignitor and flame sensor are energized at once, The coils won't open unless the resistance in the circuit changes. With the flame sensor and ignitor out of the circuit AND the ignitor screaming hot the coils now have the means necessary to yank open the gas gates. The raw gas hits the ignitor and Ka-whoosh we have ignition. So if he ignitor is glowing it is ok and if the ignitor shuts down after it gets hot then the flames sensor is working. That means the coils must be getting intermittent and quitting with a little age on them. Replace those coils Amana Lga80aw.the automatic feature has - 9f412cc.jpgl be well. Your dryer has strips that wet clothes rub against inside the front under the filter. That means you have an electronic drying control board. Wet clothes are electrically conductive. With electronic sensing dryers as the wet clothes tumble, they touch the two metal bars in the drum. (Auto dry dryers utilize a system of cycling the timer motor with the element, and has nothing to do with how wet the clothes are by the way.) There is a capacitor on the control that is trying to build up a charge, but when wet clothes create a short from one bar to the other, this charge is released to the frame of the dryer, therefore discharging the capacitor. As long as the capacitor charge is low, the control knows the clothes are wet. As the clothes become dryer, they short the bars fewer and fewer times. Once the capacitor charge builds to a certain level, the control knows the clothes are mostly dry, and it advances the program to the final timed portion, usually less than 20 minutes, some of which is a cool down portion to reduce wrinkling. If your dryer is shutting off after only 10 minutes, that means the control capacitor is never getting discharged. This can be due to a few different reasons: 1. Sensing bar wire is disconnected or broken; 2. Load is not large enough (remember the bars must be contacted repeatedly); 3. Bars are "coated" by fabric softener build up and need to be cleaned with Windex or 409. 4. Defective control board. 5. Airflow is restricted and moisture can't escape the drum. 6. Corrosion built-up on sensing board connection.(yank out tAmana Lga80aw.the automatic feature has - 94c4018.jpgd clean the contacts that sometimes is all it takes) Address the airflow condition and load size. Clean the sensor bars and make sure the wires are all connected securely.
