Does the gas valve come with the 2 coils installed?
Yes, the gas valve WE14X215 does come with the coils installed on it.
Dryer stopped working. Will occasionally ignite and run for 2-3 minutes then all future attempts to light are accompanied by terrible rattling sound coming from the gas valve. It seems to me that the solenoids are attempting to open but are not.
My diagnosis is that it is time to replace the gas valve assembly. Would you concur?
Thanks in advance for your consideration.
Answer Scott, based on your post description, you're on target. When the coils fail, they can and will make a rattling or chattering noise when they attempt to lift the internal plungers. Replacing the gas valve WE14X215 would be the best option at this point. Be careful not to damage or break the igniter WE4X739 or flame sensor WE4X448 Remove power to the dryer and make sure you turn the gas supply off at the wall fitting, before you do anything.
