Heat shuts off about half way through cycle. Clothes still damp.
Answer Hello Mark. Check and se if the igniter is weak or if the gas valve is bad in the unit. If the igniter is glowing red hot, but no gas is released, replace the gas valve in the unit.
How long should the coil glow orange? The coil on my dryer glows orange for about 5 seconds and does not ignite when I have the side panel off. When it is on hot air comes out but then turns mild shortly after.
Answer Hello Tyler. It sounds correct. You may have bad coils on the unit. Check the coils and see if they test good. You can test the coils using a multi-meter TJMA-DM1. The two prong coil will read 1,000-1,300 ohms, and the three prong coil will read 1,300-1,400 ohms across prongs 1&2, and 500-600 ohms across prongs 1&3. Test the coils after running the dryer for about 10 minutes. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
