Originally I had 120v to ignitor, replaced ignitor because it fell out in pieces. Dryer still didn't heat, blower motor and drum motor operating. In the process of checking to see whether the ignitor was glowing or not, I shorted out a terminal on the flame detector. I removed the flame detector and it is obviously cooked. I put it all back together and started the diagnosis over again. I no longer have 120v to ignitor (18v). I checked the continuity of the coils, 2 prong (1250), 3 prong, between 1&2 (infinite), 1&3 (560). At the very least it would seem I have to replace a coil and the flame detector, and with all the dicking around some pieces fell off the new ignitor, although it may be OK, I don't know. I can't read the resistance values for the t-stats and limit controls on the wiring diagram to check to see if I fried any of them. Is repairing this machine cost effective? Or should I trash it? The only reason I'm trying to repair this machine is because I want to. Thanks, I hope you're laughing, but it's true.

Should the flame detector, we4x448 (ap2042635) read zero ohms at room temp with the leads disconnected. That is what it looks like on the schematic.

My gas dryer starts and the flame ignites normally then after about ten minutes the flame goes out. The dryer continues to run for a few minutes then shuts off altogether. It takes about ten minutes for the dryer to be able to be restarted then does the same thing all over again. I have cleared the exhaust duct and even run the machine with the vent tube removed for the wall and it seems to run even less time than when it is connected so I don't think it is an airflow problem. Please help!

I replaced igniter assembly WE4X739 and both coils 279834. The igniter comes on and stays on but flame does not start. Made sure the gas line is open, and it is. The igniter also does not turn off after few minutes of running. I have no idea what else can be causing this. Checked the flame detector and it seems fine so are the rest of the thermostats and thermistors. What else can be causing this? Thanks

My dryer fires up ok but flame goes out after a few minutes. Is there a common problem that is fixable? If so what would I have to get for the repair? Thank You!

Hi, my dryer has been working for years very well, until the dryer heating stopped. I removed the old igniter (we4x444), which was burnt/broken. I replaced it with a new we4x444 igniter. I installed it, started the dryer and within 20-30 seconds the igniter and flame started and within 10-20 seconds, the igniter made a spark and the igniter glow turned off. I removed the new igniter and half the igniter's coil missing. It turned out that the spark that it made broke portion of the igniter coil. What do you think it is?... If I buy another new igniter, it will burn... thank you

Hi, Ignition is delayed up to 5 minutes. All systems appear to be working as planned but no matter the control setting, ignition is delayed most of the time. Working occasionally as planned but delays are very frequent.

How does the igniter work. It seems to just slide into its bracket and no wires are attached directly to it.
