hi, my dryer started acting up, so i watched it ,which i found that the igniter would glow and the gas would fire but shut off after a few seconds, it would repeat that several times and then it would glow with no ignition. i ordered coils and replaced them and the dryer would glow but not ignite at all, i got a new set of coils thinking it was a defective new coil but the same happens. i put the old coils back in and it glows and ignites a few times then no gas ignition same as the problem was.i dont know why the new coils did not work. the new booster coil and holding coil also get hot after a couple of cycles of the glowing with no ignition.confused,john.
Answer John, Based on your postinformation, If your sure you had no loose connections when you installed the new coil assemblies, and the original coils only worked a few cycles and failed, you may have a gas pressure issue to the dryer (pressure drops below 3.5 wci) or an internal failure in the gas valve itself. You may want to consider a new gas valve kit W10116794 as that's the more likely issue.
When I replaced the coils on the gas valve, gas leaks out the double coil valve. Is this normal? Valve still does not work.
Answer Hello Bombay. No, based on the information you provided, it sounds like the gas valve W10116794 is bad and will need to be replaced on the unit.
