Usually behind a removable panel on the bottom front of the dryer, the panel may have a few screws but most just "snap" on and off. You should see a gas valve with a red knob that has the "off", "pilot" and "on positions.

Does a ge gas dryer with the model number DBSR453GBOWW have a pilot light?


Your GE dryer does not have a pilot light, a common issue on gas dryers is the ignitor. More info needed (what does the dryer do or not do when you push the start button?) to give a better answer.

How to light the pilot. The pilot went off when I shut the power off during the Irene storm. I cannot locate where to open so I can light the pilot. I have a GE Profile Gas Dryer, Mod.PDSR 610GG8WT


unless this is a very very old dryer,, it will have a glow plug element in it and should light without the need to light a pilot, just try starting it and see if it lights, But it would have to be ages old to need a pilot lit, I'll try and locate that model, But lemme know if it fires up will ya

I have an old Kenmore 70 Series dryer, just this weekend, the drum turns but no heat..... after a little search online, I suspect the pilot light went out. Where is the pilot light located? I lost the...


The burner is on the lower right side of the bottom under the drum. See this manual pdf page 23 for location and access. https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/4829abde74a34d7f85256ab000620794/$FILE/4322260.pdf

The burner uses an ignitor and a flame sensor vs a pilot light. See this link pages 12 - 14
https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/c5c81d2c8f26b1b5852574f20055c20c/$FILE/4314010.pdf Note the M series burner has been in use since 1984.

The dryer must have a complete termperature circuit and no "high temp limit" failures for the ignitor to light. That means the door is closed, motor is running, and the cycle thermostat is less than 135 deg F and the High limit thermostat is less than 180 deg F just to provide power to the gas valve solenoids, ignitor, and radiant / flame sensor.

Is there a pilot light on amana gas dryer model LG4309W


There is no standing pilot light. The gas is ignited by a hot surface device that is electrically controlled. Trace the exhaust venting to locate the burner area.

Dryer pilot light goes on then goes right out. dryer wont heat


Hi there. Soon as the pilot switches off (will still be red hot but fade away rapidly) the gas valve should turn on. (make sure gas supply is on) If valve doesn't turn on, check sensor located very near pilot element.
When the sensor "feels" the heat of the pilot, it switches the pilot off and the gas valve on.
Thanks

Intermittant flame, ignitor function is good, all other functions are as designed,timer ,tumble etc.


Hi

The pilot light flame would sometimes get very small and keep going out. This was usually because the pilot orifice was getting dirty and was partly plugged. The pilot orifice must be cleaned out when the flame becomes too small to light the main burner. You can blow air through the pilot assembly to help clean it out, don't use something metal in the pilot orifice hole or you risk enlarging the pilot gas feed hole and the pilot light may be too BIG. If your pilot flame keeps "going out", chances are you will need to replace the pilot latch do make sure the vent hood flapper is closing ok and no outside air blowing in is effecting the pilot flame.
This is a thermocouple that sensed the heat from the pilot flame and kept a small amount of gas flowing to allow the pilot light to stay lit. If you followed the instructions ( usually found inside the small access door on the front bottom ) on how to re-lite your pilot when it goes out and the flame will not stay on, replace the pilot latch assembly.

Please accept the solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

1 Answer

No hot air


If you have a pilot light (small flame) you can try to re-light it by turning the knob on the gas valve to the pilot position and pushing the knob down while lighting the pilot, you may have to hold the knob down for up to 30 seconds before releasing it. The pilot should stay lit and then turn the knob to the on position. If the pilot will not stay lit or the main burner will not light it could be the gas valve or the temperature sensor.
