Question about Dryers
I BOUGHT THIS FROM THE STORE (LOWES) AS A FLOOR MODEL "AS IS". IT NEVER STAYED ON. WHEN I TURN IT ON, IT SHUTS OFF AFTER A FEW SECONDS. NO ERROR CODE - JUST TURNS OFF. I HAVE THE EXTRA AMPS PUT IN BY AN ELECTRICIAN AS REQUIRED. BEFORE THROWING GOOD MONEY AFTER BAD, IS IT WORTH HAVING A REPAIR MAN COME?
EXTREMELY GRATEFUL FOR ANY HELP.
coul be a fuse pn: 279973 or heater pn:3387747
I don't believe that is a heater because its a new machine.
You can get the parts at sears . com and search for parts.
If you open the botton plate of your dryer you gonna see at the right side the heater and screwed into the heater is a thermostat and a fuse.
Before replace the heater , make sure that your vent is cleaning otherwise its gonna blow again

Sounds like you need to replace the coils on the gas valve. Just make sure your venting is clear 1st. If it is, the coils are easy to replace. Remove the front panel and the coils are on the bottom right hand side. Two screws and the bracket for both comes off. One has two terminals and the other has three. Real easy once you get into the dryer.
