Question about Dryers
It's likely one of the coils is opening a break in the coil as the coil
heats up. This coil will shrink when cool and be able to run again. The
number for the coil kit, which will replace ALL the coils, for your
machine is 279834.
Disconnect power and turn off gas before working on this dryer. Working on gas dryers is not recommended for people who are not professionals.
Disconnect Power. Lift Cover on lint filter. Remove two screws Phillips screws taking care NOT to allow them to fall into the blower housing. Place putty knife in the seam between the top and front panel about 2” in from either side. Push in on clip while pulling control panel forward and tilting putty knife handle up, all at the same time. Same on opposite side. Raise top all the way.
Looking down inside dryer on left and right see a 5/16” hex head screw about 6 inches down. Remove each side while holding front panel in place. Pull top of front panel about 3 inches forward from sides and then pull up. This will disengage the front panel from lower pressure clips and allow you to turn it sideways and expose the dryer interior. Reverse process to re-assemble. Take careful note of belt configuration BEFORE removing it. Draw a diagram of its travel.
Motor and idler pulley for dyer will be on right. Gas components, if present, will be on left
Replace All coils with Kit Number listed above. Take care not to touch or hit the ignitor or you will be replacing it also. It is VERY brittle.
