Is it possible to disassemble the gas valve assembly to free up sticking valves? Would a shot of wd-40 do any good? Any harm?
Answer Hello Bill,
Gas valve dis-assembly is strongly recommended against because it is next to impossible to re-assemble the valve so there is no gas leak. Even technicians replace the valve instead of trying to repair them.
I smell gas only inside the dryer when is not on. I checked and couldn't fine any gas leak. Dryer is heating fine. Do you think if I replace coil kit it will resolve this issue? Thanks for your support.
Answer Hello Edser,
If there is an issue with a gas smell the coils will not correct. You see, the coils are used against the closure springs to open the coils. If there are closure issues, the gas valve W10118347 will have to be replaced.
I have identified I need a coil valve kit (279834) for a Whirlpool gas dryer. However, I also need the sleeves that are used with them. How/Where can I purchase those?
The gas coils come with the sleeves inserted into them. If you are looking for the part that they slide down over then it would be the gas valve that is required.
What causes gas to leak out of the gas valve at the nozzle of the valve past the coils.
The issue with the unit is that the gas valve is faulty. The valves are sticking open and the gas valve would need to be replaced.
Have a very old Amana model # LG2912L Heavy Duty Touchmatic dryer that needs coils replaced but wanted to know if these newer parts are compatible with this older model?
Answer Hello Renee! Yes, the dryer gas valve coil kit 279834 will fit your model LG2912L. This is a manufacturer replacement part and may differ in appearance but is a functional equivalent to the original. Thanks.
Will the gas coils AP3094251 fit my Samsung DV328AGW/XAA-0000 dryer?
Answer Hello Mike! Unfortunately, the coils are not suggested for your model. To obtain the coils for your dryer you'll need to replace the valve, part number DC62-00201A. Sorry about that!
I replaced the coils. Two weeks later same problem so I replaced them again and worked great. After another two weeks same problem so is there something else going on.
Answer Hello David,
I would start at the wall outlet, making sure the voltage is between 115 to 125Vac. An improper voltage supply to the unit is the most common cause of this complaint. From there you will need to pull the tech sheet from the unit and trace the circuit to locate the issue. To do this, open the control panel and test the voltage from the red wire on the timer to any white wire. Make sure you are within the 115 to 125Vac range when the gas valve is energized. Also, there is a metal sleeve on the gas valve between the coil and the valve that will commonly stick inside of the old coil when it is removed. If this doesn't get transferred when the coils are changed, it can cause a similar issue in addition to making the valve chatter and only opening intermittently.
