Question about Dryers

1 Answer

For whirlpool duet GGW 9250 PW0 GAS DRYER How do you know if the gas solenoid are bad? I check the resistance as per manual and its within its limit. It ignites and flames come out but the flame only last for 17 secs the first ignition and from there on it only last 7 or 8 secs. Ignition goes every 2 to 3 minutes, but still only 7 to 8 secs of flame out. do you think its still the gas solenoid?

The gas valve solenoid coils work when cool that's why the resistance reading is within the limit but fail when heated. Bypass the thermostat on the burner funnel and if the flame still goes out too soon, the coils are weak and both must be replaced. The resistance reading is reliable only when the dryer does not heat at all or shall we say the flame does not go on at all and the purpose is to check the continuity of the coil.

No Heat on a whirlpool dryer. 14 years old.drum turns,timer moves,getting gas to valve,tapped solenoids-no change.burner not lighting. thanks for any info


if ignitor not coming on could be flame sensor mounted on side of burner housing or ignitor ..if ignitor glowing but burner no lighting replace both solenoids bad connections interally on solenoids..also if ignitor not glowing possible small white thermal fuse open.. sensor and fuse can be jumped across to confirm ..
