Question about Amana ALG331RAW Gas Dryer

1 Answer

Heats up and then no heat again

Dryer only heats up for the first cycle then will not heat up again. Ignition cycles on and off but but i dont get a flame. (Im thinking it's the gas valve solenoids)

If the timer is set on the 'more dry, less dry' cycle, timer will not progress after first flame cycle, I have to manually shut off. On the time cycle, timer will progress and shuts off automatically but of course still no heat after first cycle. (is this related to the first problem?)

Kenmore dryer model 110 does not stop during automatic cycle


Make sure the small orange wire is connected to the 250 limit at the base of the heater assy. That is what powers the motor on auto cycle.

Drier heats up in beginning of cycle but after that never heats up again during that same cycle.


Hello,

While you didn't say im suspecting it a gas heated dryer??

If so here is whats wrong with it;
The reason your gas heated dryer starts off heating ok,but a part way through the cycle it is no longer heating as it did when it started,is beacuse the coils that open the gas valve are getting hot and breaking down when they are warm. At start up of cycle the coils are cool,but when the dryer heats up as it runs the coils that are weak can not handle the heat and do not open the gas valve. Replacing the gas valve coils with fresh,strong ones will open the gas valve the entire duration of the drying cycle. All appliance manufactures use the same exact gas valve coils and label them with their unique part number. Having been in the service business i know they are all the same and the part number for the least expensive gas valve coils is 279834
They can be purchased at your local appliance parts store on online at
searspartsdirect.com
repairclinic.com
apwagner.com
apdepot.com
midwestapplianceparts.com

To replace the coils,remove bracket over them(dont worry about where it says dont grip thats for when dryer is plugged in) unplug them and install new ones,that bracket has notches in it and the coils have tabs that inter lock so they position them self exactly where they fit.

This is what the coils looks like

Quits heating


umm. what was original problem that made you change coils to begin?? no heat i would imagine.dont rush to judgement thatyour fix didnt work, if your running the dryer empty to test your repair,its quite possible that the dryer is going to heat to desired temp quickly, and take a while to cycle back on. throwsome wet clothes in machine and test it then.

Whirlpool LTE5243D Top Load Stacked Dryer heats sometimes and not others


couple things this could be lets start obvious
faulty door switch even though door latches doesnt mean its working properly
bad guages easy to check dont have to run dryer just guages
turn on setting let run threw cycle if it stops on cycle and dont move for a length of time this will be the problem

these 2 things are main causes of why a machine wont work or partcially works at times everything else is easy
