There seems to be 2 different igniters for this dryer and I am trying to figure out which is needed.
If the first 2 digits in the serial number of the dryer is between 10 and 59 then you would use igniter part number 4391996. If the first 2 digits are 60 and higher then use igniter part number 33002789.
Hi, my dryer stopped working, the clothing that was put in there was wet. After that it stopped working. The washer works properly but it won't heat up. I look inside and the pilot(ignitor) is off. When i start a cycle the drum spins, but nothing else happens. I don't see a spark or flame. Is the pilot (ignitor) supposed to be always on, or will only spark when the cycle is started. This a gas dryer. I am clueless as what could be the problem, but by reading at the previous posts i kind of have an idea now. I will appreciate any help on this matter. Regards. Ed.
Answer Ed, In fact, this is a commercial / coin op gas dryer. But like any gas dryer, you will need to check two components, based on your description, The gas valve ignitor 33002789 if it is broken or cracked(usually a white colored spot) it will not glow and ignite the gas. And the Radiant/flame sensor 338906 has to have a "closed" circuit, at room temperature, in order to complete the circuit and allow the power to the igniter, so it will glow and get hot enough to ignite the gas. Good Luck and Thanks
Our dryer no longer puts out hot, or warm air. Last time this happened, it was the ignitor that was bad. I would like to replace this myself rather than paying for a service call. Is there anything else that could be causing our problem or is this the most logical thing to replace?
Answer Hi Jake. Yes this is the logical part to consider replacing. The ignitor part # is 33002789. If the dryer still runs, then you should be ok. Getting to it is another thing to consider. Turn off the breaker. Access the ignitor by removing the front panel/ door assembly.Make sure you mark any wires you take off to insure proper hook up. Then the ignitor can be un bolted from the inside of the heater can. Make sure you do not handle the ignitor end itself, only the white bolted side. Hope this helps. Thank-you.
