For Whirlpool Dryer Gas Valve Coil Kit (Part Number: AP3094251)

I just bought a used Maytag #MDG3500BWW dryer and noticed after its been sitting for a day with the gas line hooked up and dryer sitting idle, I've been smelling gas from the drum area inside the dryer. I'm assuming it's leaking from the valve assy via one of the 2 valves in it. Could replacing the 2 coils fix this issue or am I looking at the whole gas valve assy to fix this issue?

ANSWER Hello Dave, Mix one teaspoon of liquid dishwashing detergent with one quart of water and put it in a spray bottle. Spray all of the gas carrying components beginning with the gas line connections. This is the recommended way to locate a leak. Too much liquid detergent in the water will prevent bubbling since the gas is such a low pressure. Also, it does take a few minutes for the bubbles to be noticeable when a small leak is present. A larger leak will show up quicker.
