If the gas valve won't shut off can the valve be repaired? I just got the dryer and I don't know if it was switched over to propane. Would that cause the valve not to shut off?
The gas valve 37001127 cannot be serviced, only replaced. You don't want to service a valve that could be an explosion hazard. Also, the gas supplied to the valve will not cause a valve failure unless the gas is contaminated. Your best choice is to replace the valve.
When my dryer shuts off i smell strong gas , no leaks in gas pipe conections.
Answer Hello DDS. If nothing is leaking in the gas supply, then the valve 37001002 is not shutting off and will need to be replaced on the unit.
My dryer does not heat, the igniter comes on but no gas. I checked the continuity on all the parts including the coils. All seem to be functioning properly. can you help?
Answer Jim, You still have a problem with the gas valve coils, most likely 279834, you may want to check the coil resistance again, but wait until you've run the dryer for 15 minutes first. Good Luck and Thanks.
