    Page 13 of the manual in the link I posted above gives ohms readings on the coils . Take these measurements when the coils are hot to confirm my suspicions or simply buy another set they are cheap enough.

Dryer is not heating enough to dry the clothes. It is 9 years old, is it better to just invest in a new dryer?


After 9 years you are going to need to replace some parts. If the ignitor works and the flame sensor is shutting down the gas but the flame stops after a while or not at all then them cols need to be replaced. themobilian_2331.jpgthemobilian_2332.jpgthemobilian_2333.jpg

You might want to replace the thermacouplar. Sometimes when they are going out , all will appear to be alright but as you stated it takes a long time for the flame to come back on. This sounds to me like the thermacouplar is going out.

you have several things to look at, 1 - is the vent abstructed or pluged up with lint? 2- is there gas to the unit and is the valve turned to the on position? 3- is there spark when you turn the unit on and if the dryer isnt shutting off then you may have a problem with the timer or comp. board

Amana Dryer LG8409W2 - The dryer heats for a few seconds then runs cold. The dryer has been cleaned as well as the vent and still no heat.


karenl46 -- Flame sensor has to "see" proper flame in order for gas burner to stay on. Safety solenoid engages (shuts off gas) when flame light not detected. Check window on sensor (1:30 CW position) on burner tube. If you still have problem after cleaning it, then refer to URL below. -- SWT

Dryer heating problem


It sounds like an air flow issue. There is a flame sensor on the side of the flame housing. If the venting is not sucking the flame down the tube it will cycle very quickly and never reach the right temp.

Check your venting, this could be causing the thermostats to pop and shut down the flame. The complete venting line.

Gas Dryer won't stay hot


There is a thermoelectric eye that says it is OK to keep the gas burner on. If this sensor is defective or blocked from "seeing" the gas flame is properly lit, it will turn off the gas flow (safety) override solenoid. With the unit unplugged make sure that the optical path on the upper right (1:30 CW position) flame tube inside sensor window is clean. The rattle you hear is probably the safety gas shut-off solenoid engaging. If you need more help, please ask -- SWT

try cleaning or replacing the flame sensor ( optical unit mounted on the side of the burner tube. voltage flows though that optical eye that proves flame.
