Our dryer tumbles and seems to have very little/no heat. Dryer sensor cycle does not work at all; runs continuously. After 2-3 hours basic loads are dry. What part should we try first?
Answer Hello Kim. You will need to test the thermostats and the flame sensor and make sure they are good. They should read closed for continuity. Also, check the igniter to see if it is good. If it is not glowing, test for power. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter for the testing procedures. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
i HAVE A MAYTAG DG110 SER 01 When started the ing heats up but no flame. I have replaced all the coils and had been working fine untill this problem.
You will want to test the flame sensor in which it should read closed for continuity when testing. If it reads open then it is faulty and would need to be replaced.
No heat, coils chatter, igniter heats up first then coils chatter but no flame. What is wrong, is it the flame sensor?
Answer Hello Rich,
This can be caused by low gas pressure, a bad gas valve coil 279834, or a failing gas valve 8318277. The flame sensor will have nothing to do with this issue.
The gas will not come out. I have replaced the coils (coils chatter). Is this a bad heat sensor?
Answer Hello Richard,
This would be caused by low gas pressure, a bad coil 279834 on the gas valve or a failing gas valve 8318277.
How do I know if the flame sensor is bad?
Answer Hello Steve. It should read closed for continuity and then open when it gets hot.
Having issues with a gas dryer,just put in new motor and blower. Now have trouble getting fire or burner on, igniter glows for a few seconds, but no heat,also had changed coil pack, thought it might be of help,old pack are still good.getting good reading,
Answer Juan, if the igniter does it's job and ignites the gas, but the flame is only on for a few seconds, you'll need to check for a clogged exhaust vent system, or blockage in the air duct on the front panel 131621900. If the igniter doesn't glow or is a constant glow, then test ot replace the flame sensor 338906. If the igniter glows then cycles off, but there is no flame, you'll need to check for proper gas supply to the gas valve and check for any loose connections to the new coils.
