Clothes are not drying. When I turn on the dryer it does igniter the Gas for 5 minutes and then goes out (as it should) but 2 min later the igniter glows however no gas flows, so the igniter stops. I checked and have continuity on 4 sensors (Flame, High heat, Humidity, and Cycling). Part 61372 has 3 legs coming off it. There is continuity between 2 of them but not the third. Should there be continuity between all the legs? I'm pretty sure this is not a gas jet problem.
Answer 20YrsStrong, You're correct, it is not a "gas jet problem" or a thermostat issue. Based on the information, you most likely have a gas valve coil 279834 that is failing and will not open the gas valve to release and ignite the flame. As for the Y61372 thermostat, No there will not be continuity between all three legs. There will be continuity across the brass terminal and the steel terminal across from each other.
When the thermostat reaches temp. the circuit will switch and then there will be a circuit between the two steel terminals. This is a "single pole double throw" thermostat. and is working properly at present.
Dryer has no heat.
Answer Hello William. Check and make sure you have 240 volts coming to the dryer. Check and make sure the unit is not set to Air Fluff. Also check the heater and thermostats and see if they are good. You can test these with a multi-meter TJMA-DM1. They should read closed for continuity. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
Hi.....My dryer gets hot once then won't relight - the coil cycles on and off but no gas comes out. Thermostat, limit switch or possibly gas solenoids ? Thanks for your help...Jim
Answer Jim, If the igniter glows then fades, but there is no flame or gas released for ignition, it would be an issue in the gas valve coils 279834 or no gas supplied to the dryer or gas valve. Good Luck and Thanks
