Dryer taking long time to dry. Dryer ignights and heats for 5 mins then flame goes outand it blows unheated air. Dryer tries to re light and inginter glows but when it shuts down the flame does not come back on.
The first thing to check would be the venting to make sure that the vent is clear. If the vent checks ok then the most likely cause for the unit not relighting would be that the coils or the flame sensor have failed.
Dryer won't dry on Sensor dry. It takes a long time to dry in timed dry. The cooling light is on continuously. I can hear the burner light but I believe the control panel is bad. Thanks
Answer Hello Mike,
Test the sensor dry by removing the duct from the back of the unit and let it run for 5 to 10 minutes. Make sure there is heat coming out of the rear of the unit and after the allotted time, look at the timer to make sure it has advanced. If it has not, either the timer has failed or the unit has a bad centrifugal switch on the motor. If it has advanced, the issue is in the exhaust duct, (crimped or clogged).
My gas dryer heats on manual but when I try to use sensor the gas stops after 2 min?
Answer Hi. Ohm out the thermistor on top of the blower housing part # 6323EL2001B. It should read 10,000 ohms +/_ 5% tolerance only. Replace it if necessary. Make sure the blower housing is clear of debris in the blower wheel itself and the entire vent system including the vent cap/hood opening and closing on its own (lint free). Thank You.
