The ignitor starts, flame comes on, stays on for a min then goes out. ignitor starts again a minute later, the flame comes, high smell of gas. Clothes are not dried in an hour, but may be dried in 2 or 3. We did replace Dryer Igniters and Gas Valve Coils 3 years ago.
Answer Hello Chris. It sounds like the venting system is clogged or kinked. You will need to check the vent and clean it out. Be sure and clean the vent pipe and the dryer air duct assembly. If the air flow is not good, the unit will retain moist air causing the clothes not to dry. Try running the unit with the vent unhooked from the back of the dryer and see if the dryer works properly.
Dryer lights. Flame stays lite for about a minute then goes out. Ignitor goes back on but, flame does not restart. No smell of gas.
Answer Hello Garry. 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 and make sure it is getting hot enough to light the gas. If all is good on the unit, you will need to replace the gas valve 31001485. 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
