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.

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.

Hello, I have a GE gas dryer that runs and abruptly shuts off usually between 30 and 120 seconds then beeps two short beeps and one long beep and starts the counter over like the load is finished. I am not foreign to fixing my own appliances have done so many times in the past. I belive it is the heat dector/ flame sensor but want to be sure. Here is the sequence. Press start- motor starts- hear a relay click on the control board then ignitor starts- gas valve opens- runs for approx 30sec or less- sometimes tries to start again and others just ends the cycle. I have checked the gas valve coils and test - ok

I have replaced the ignitor but in the process disconnected the heat sensor. There a 3 wires white black and red. There is a double auto female clip where 2 wires go on one terminal of the sensor. Which two go together? The black and white come out of the valve assembly the red is is coming from a wiring harness.
