The gas valve is not sensing flame if you have hsi ignitor it also acts as a flame sensor or you might have a metel rod that reaches into the flame if you do youhave to have some one check and clean it

Dryer heats for 5 minutes then no heat, but keeps tumbling


Perhaps the flame sensor is not working. If it does not sense heat, it will shut off the gas. You might go online and search for a manual to help you troubleshoot, or go to:

for troubleshooting help and parts. I hope this is of help to you.

I have a Maytag Model PGR5710BDW gas range. The bake igniter lights up and the gas ignites after 2 minutes or so. Then the flame goes out after a few seconds and then reignites and this cycle repeats ...


Hello,

Yes it is the igniter its weak and can not stay within normal range to stay on allowing the flame to stay on.

Burner ignites and runs for for several minutes (normal), my or may not reignite later. Unsure if it is not calling for heat or not reigniting. Vent is clean as a whistle. Normally use sensor dry vs timed...


Hello,

Depending on your brand and model down on the bottom of the front panel is a piece you can take off and look in and see the burner asm. If at first you see the glow of the igniter, followed by a flame then once the flame cuts off a few minutes later the igniter glows but no flame, the coils that open the gas valve wont open to allow gas flow when they are warm, and need to be replaced.

Gas dryer ignites burns for 5 minutes cuts off and tries to reignite every 50 seconds and fails


try replacing the 2 black coils on the gas valve. they will wear out over time and cause this problem.

Whirlpool gas dryer rotates, gas ignites but goes out, won't reig


coils on the gas valve, especially the single coils that whirlpool uses, break down after use. They may ohm out good when cold and the burner may light 1, 2, or 3 times, then you get ignition failure. Coils are bad. Hint when replacing coils. the front coil which has 3 terminals has a metal sleeve inside the coil. Make sure that sleeve stays with the valve. It can get stuck in the old coil and thrown away. Good luck
