Dryer will not heat. Normally I hear a loud click when I push the start button then I hear the burner come on. I don't hear any of this but the drum turns. Any idea or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.
ANSWER Jason, Your dryer has a removable lower access panel, you can remove it with a putty knife or flat blade screwdriver, at the top of the panel. After you remove it, you can observe the gas valve, and the gas valve ignition sequencee ane operation. Start the dryer on a heated dry cycle, you should see the igniter start to glow, in a few seconds the igniter should start to fade and the gas should ignite.
If the igniter never glows, that could indicate a broken igniter or no power to the gas valve, if the glow bar glows, but does not fade, would indicate a bad flame sensor switch, if the glowbar glows and fades but no gas is released that would indicate a bad set of gas valve coils 279834 or no gas to the dryer. Good Luck.
