My dryer is 20 years old, has never been serviced and recently started taking longer to dry until it finally stopped heating. I took it apart. The igniter measured 180 ohms which is the the range but looks pretty bad, almost white in the middle of the coil and dark gray at the ends. Also, check both coils and they measured correctly at about 1300, 1400 and 500 ohms. Is there away to check the valve? Could it still be the igniter that opens up when it heats up? Any other ideas? Thanks.

For the past month, the gas dryer makes a high pitched whistling sound, but only when the dryer is heating. It almost sounds like a dog whistle. The noise goes away when I turn off the gas to the dryer. I'm not sure which part to repair. I've heard people say this may be a faulty gas regulator. Have you heard of this issue before? If so, which part do you recommend I repair? Also, thank you for the videos...very informative!

Does the gas valve come with the 2 coils installed?

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.

Hello, We have had this dryer for 12 years, seems that over time we have been getting more and more of a propane smell from the dryer. This occurs when The propane tank is getting low on propane And after the dryer has shut off. as I said, it seem to getting getting worse over time.... my thoughts are the valve is getting tired and not sealing as it should. Anyone have any thoughts Thanks

Hi, this is my 3rd question, trying to properly diagnose a problem with my dryer--please see my history for better explanation (you first answered me on 11/23) Here is the latest reply: Hi Bill. The Glo-Bar is heating and the booster and safety coils both being energized have opened the safety valve. The main valve is closed, as its coil is bypassed by the N.C. flame detector. When the Glo-Bar reaches ignition temperature, approximately 60 seconds or less, the flame detector is heated and opens. This places the main coil in series with the Glo-Bar. The main valve opens and combustion occurs. The main coil now in series with the Glo-Bar causes the Glo-Bar to cool down. However,the flame detector is held open by radiant heat from the gas flame. The booster coil is now also in series with the main coil and is essentially inoperative. Should a momentary power failure occur. The gas valve will shut off, and an attempt to restart will not occur until the flame detector cools and resets, approximately 30 seconds. You will need to replace the gas valve part # AP2043480. Thank You.

Now I have also replaced the flame detector, but the symptoms are exactly the same--somehow the gas valve electrically reopens for a few seconds after shutting down at the end of burn cycle, causing raw gas to flow. I metered across the flame detector and found that it goes open for that short time, which is why I replaced it. The gas valve was my first suspicion, but as I said I replaced it and still have the same problem. What other component can cause the valve to re-energize after a burn cycle? Thanks again, Bill

Just moved into a new house that came with this dryer. For a while we would smell gas in the drum. So I took the front off and sprayed soap to see if any of the pipes were leaking. I could only find one leak and that was coming out from the front of the valve where its supposed to come out when the dryer is running. Is this a problem with the solenoid valve? or do I need to replace the whole valve assembly? or is this some type of pressure relief? I have regular natural gas from the city, so I dont think its gonna be to high or anything. Any help would be great.

Hi. This is a followup to the question you answered on 11/23 (http://www.appliancepartspros.com/questions-for-GE-Valve--gas-AP2043480-qid31661.aspx#q31661)--turns out gas pressure is not the reason for my raw gas smell. At the end of each burn cycle, the gas valve powers down, but then powers back up for a couple of seconds after the ignitor has shut down. I metered across the flame detector, and found that it goes open for those few seconds after each burn cycle, then recloses. Have you seen that happen before? I have a new flame detector on order, but what concerns me is all it takes to energize that gas valve is an open at the detector--that doesn't seem safe to me! What are your thoughts on this? Thanks again, Bill

Had intermittent raw gas smell when running; soaped & leak checked everything. Assumed problem was leaking gas valve, replaced w/ part# AP2043480. Still have occasional smell. Question 1: is this gas valve set up standard for natural or LP, and if natural, is it good to 6000' altitude? Question 2: if gas valve is correct, how can gas leak by without a combination of problems in the gas valve relay, the ignitor, and/or the flame sensor? Thanks!
