The problem is the gas valve solenoid coils which seem to work fine when cool but fail when get heated. The only viable solution is replacing both solenoid coils located on top of the gas valve assembly. Raise the top cover and remove the front panel to access and replace the solenoid coils.

Dryer won't stay running without holding down the start button


It may be the centrifugal switch on the motor. The push button starts the motor and as the motor spins up to speed the centrifugal switch closes to keep the motor running. Hope this helps.

I CAN HAVE MY DRYER ON THE HOTTEST SETTING AND IT GETS HOT BUT TAKES LIKE 3 TIMES THROUGH A CYCLE TO DRY MY STUFF


I would first pull the exhaust hose or pipe off and check for blockage or a kink. If its getting hot then its probably an air flow issue. Also make sure the lint trap is clean. Sometimes you can get the crevice attachment for a vacuum down in the lint trap area far enough to clean any excess lint out. Check where the dryer exhausts outside for a blockage like maybe birds nest or bees hive. I hope this helps.

Dd you try to unscrew the larger lint trap underneath the lint cup collector. My serivce person showed me how to do this and after a year I cleaned it out and was surprised how much lint was caught in there. My dryer was not heating and drying quickly, this helped the problem.

Longest 6 minutes ever


I wiped off the two rows of sensors located behind the lint trap inside the drum. Now my dryer shuts off at 0 minutes. The clothes are still a little bit damp so I let the dryer run for 10 more minutes. Try it before replacing the computer board.
