Question about Dryers

1 Answer

Maybe you can help. The problem I am having is the dryer turns on and runs. The gas lights and the coils get hot. After about 5 mins the gas goes out and the dryer runs cold. After a few mins the gas trys to light again but goes back out. Been reading that I should replace the coil. Any help would be great. Thanks, Duane Silva

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....

If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

I HAVE A KENMORE 80 SERIES GAS DRYER. WHEN YOU TURN IT ON IT FIRES UP AND GETS HOT. AFTER A WHILE (5-10 MIN'S) FIRE GOSE OUT AND WILL NOT COME BACK ON.


Hello,
If what happens is the flame comes on when it first starts,after the flame goes off you see the igniter glows then goes off but no flame,the coils that open the gas valve are working while thier cool but once the dryer gets running,when warm to hot the gas valve coils wont open the gas valve so when the igniter comes on and no flame the coils have failed to open gas valve and need to be replaced, all manufactures use the same coil supplied by one parts supplier, and them not opening the valve when warm is a very common occurence regardless of what brand gas dryer it is.
The part number for the coils is 279834 they could be picked up from your local appliance parts store for under $20 or online at;

My Kenmore gas dryer mod 110.77522600 burner light when I first turn it on. After 4 mins. or so, it goes out. It will try to relight several time (igniter glows) but it never does.


This is usually the dryer coils have failed. They tend to fail as they heat up. They are inexpensive and easy to replace. Here is a video on replacing the dryer coils. If you need further help try this link for troubleshooting a gas dryer

Maytag mdg6700aww gas dryer runs but heat kicks out after 5 min


You have bad coils on your main gas valve . They tend to short (open) after getting warm which cuts off the gas to the burner . After cooling , they will work again for another 5 min until shorting again . Replace the coils (2 in a kit ).

Dryer heat turns off after about 5 min- dyer will remain running but no heat


HI, After the heat shuts down, do you hear a click like it is trying to heat again but then get no flame. The most some problem is the coils on the gas valve go bad and will not reopen after they have heated up.
Remove the cap on the front lower left panel. After dryer has ran and heat shuts down, watch and se if the ignitor glows again (you will hear a click) and the ignitor shuts off before a flame. If this happens, change the coils on th gas valve.
Here is instruction: Normal 0 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

Kenmore dryer 70 series flame ignites, but goes out after 5 mins


If it's gas, the coil valves get weak and are unable to hold themselves open when hot. First, check the exhaust vent. If it's clogged, it can't remove heat and it will shut off prematurely. Most likely the coil valves though.
