Question about Whirlpool GGQ8831L Gas Dryer
Had a slight flood in the basement, yeah thats where the dryer resides. After the water subsided I turned the dryer on and it worked, now it doesnt. Drum turns and blower runs but gas wont. I have bypassed the ignitor along with flame sensor and gas valve still wont open athough when I take the positive lead of the flame sensor and touch the dryer case the gas valve sounds as though it opens. ........
In my approach I have not assumed any of the fuses to be bad, and so if I have missed something significant, I would love to hear it.
How much water did you have in the basement? Back in June we had flooding in the area, and the my recommendation to everyone has been to replace any appliance that was under any water.
If the motor was under water, wires or the gas valves, these components will corroded and could cause you future safety concerns.
