Question about Whirlpool Dryers

1 Answer

N.Gas burners ignites, achieves a blue flame, the 'strength' of the flame seems to be big/strong/adequate, but then stops after a few minutes and dryer keeps spinning. Have removed and cleaned flex exhaust connection behind dryer and checked exhaust air flow outside, found to be ok. What may be causing it to not want to burn continually?

Hi, thanks for using fixya.com. I suspect your gas coils are intermittently faulty. This is a VERY common problem and is easily remedied by replacing the coils. They are available at http://aplusapplianceparts.com/searchquick-submit.sc?keywords=279834 and using coupon code 1050 will get you a discount on the part. They are accessed by removing the front panel and are easily replaced wiith limited tools and expertise.

get in a gas fitter to properly diagnose the problem,
igniters in ovens normally click / flash as that ignites gas quicker than a hot wire so I suspect that is problem 1
problem 2 indicates that there is a gas flow problem, probably a faulty hose or regulator
what ever it is , gas is not in the domain of diy so an accredited professional gas fitter is required to do the fix

Unit fires on call for heat but burners go from strong blue flame to lazy orange and back again....seems like diaphram in gas valve is sticking, any second thoughts??


It sounds like the burners and the air intake valve for the burners need to be cleaned. This type of blockage will cause the lazy flame look. As the Gas to Air ratio is OFF.

We have a spirit grill with 3 burners. I can light the grill, but burners 1 & 2 don't have a nice line of blue flame like burner 3. Burner 2 is especially bad with orange flames on the right and left...


Are you sure there's adequate gas in the tan? If so do the following:

Disconnect the LP tank from the grill hose. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect to the tank. Open the tank valve VERY,VERY SLOWLY, until it is full open. Light your burners individually and turn to highest flame setting, before lighting the next burner and so on.

If that solved your problem GREAT. Remember to turn the tank on that way in the future.
If it didn't you'll need to remove the burners and clean each one.

Hope this helped to get you back up and grilling again.

FLAME IS YELLOW INSTEAD BLUE for sunbeam gas range


Yellow usually means more air than gas mixing at the burner. The top of the stove lifts off. There are adjustment screws in front of every burner. Turn the burner on after first locating the screw. Turn the adjustment screw until desired flame is achieved. You want a flame with a yellow tip and the body of the flame blue. Please be very careful not to get burned. Hope this helps.

Right front burner ignites normally then suddenly goes to very low flame. i remove the disk on it and run a fine wire through the hole where gas comes out. the flame is normal fora few minutes then shrinks...


The jet you were cleaning with the wire is not the problem here - if it would have been clogged by dirt the flame would have been low always.
This gas range has a flameout protection - a bimetal sensor that should cut off the gas when the flame extinguishes. In your case the sensor on that burner is malfunctioning - when it heats up it cuts off the gas instead of opening the control valve. You will have to replace it . For that i strongly advice you to call a certified repairman - it's a complex job on which you cannot allow leaks.

It taking too long to dry. I checked for blockage in the exhaust and lint and everything was ok.


Pop open the peep hole at the front bottom and watch the igniter glow until it ignites the gas. Are the burner flames a strong blue flame? Watch it for a little while. Does it stay lit for a few secs and shut down and then try to cycle back on? By the way, how old is this dryer?

We have a 6 burner, nat gas cooktop....all unit light but the igniter clicking will not stop...unplugged it . question: all mechanics are closed is this safe gaswise?


What happens in this style ignition system is that the thermostat or electronic control switches power to the oven ignitor and gas valve circuit which are connected in series (one after the other). As power flows through the ignitor it heats and draws current (measured in amperage). Once the oven ignitor draws a specific amount of current the oven valve opens to allow gas to flow to the oven burner where the glowing hot ignitor (glow bar) ignites it. Power must continually flow through the ignitor and oven gas valve for gas to be released into the oven burner to create a flame. Once the set temperature is achieved the control stops all power to the ignition circuit which causes the ignitor to dim and the oven gas valve to close, stopping any burner flame. Cycling on and off continues to maintain the specific temperature the control is set for.

After starting my GE gas dryer , the burner fires and everything seems fine . The burner stays on for a few minutes and shuts off like it's supposed to . After a few minutes , the glow element turns on to...


Watch the igniter. Does it glow bright orange, then shut off without igniting the gas? (When the gas ignites there's a large blue flame.) If so, there may be defective coils on the gas valve. Mounted on the top of modern gas valves, there are black electrical coils. The coils, when energized, open the gas valve. If one or more of the coils are defective, the valve doesn't open and the gas cannot ignite. Because it's often difficult to properly test the coils, it's usually best to replace both (all) of them at the same time.
