Question about Dryers
Dryer heats up then after about a half hour it goes cold. It also makes a rattleing noise when the igniter comes on. At that point the gas valve must not be opening because the is no flame. Could this be the gas valve or something else. please help
You don't provide me with a brand, or model number, so I can only give you limited information. Fortunately, most gas dryers have common similarities in this regionIf your ignitor is coming on and no gas is being emitted, then you most likely have a gas valve solenoid failure. Below is a link to a parts breakdown with imagery and installation help. Item# 3479
Always make sure the power and gas is off before servcing!
