I've changed . all The sensor & gas value to my whirlpool dryer the igniter goes on but no flame could it be the timer
Answer Nell, If the igniter comes on and "glows", then the timer is sending voltage to the gas valve, so, it's not likely the timer.When the igniter is glowing, after 30 to 60 seconds, does it cycle off and start to fade ? If not, you need to check or replace the radiant/flame sensor 338906 If the igniter does cycle on and off, then you'll need to check for a gas flow/pressure issue to the dryer. The new gas valve should have solved any issues with the gas flow in the dryer. Thanks
Dryer motor comes on and drum turns, but will not produce any heat. I've cleaned all air flow vents, replaced both thermostats, get 120 volts across the thermal fuse but am not getting any volts to the burner unit. Ignitor is new and solenoids have been replaced. Could it be something other than the timer?
Answer Hi Mark. All thermostats an fuses need to be closed and not open. There is a bias thermostat mounted on the blower housing part # 3387134. Then there is a thermal fuse beside it part # 3392519. There is the high limit thermostat part # W10423382 it is mounted on the side of the burner box assy. . Usually the igniter needs to glow a red/white hot and ohm out between 50-800 ohms cold. It needs to pull 3.2 to 3.6 amps within 30-45 seconds to open the gas valve. Use a clamp on meter on one lead from the igniter to the gas valve to check. Of course you need to bypass the door switch to check it. Check the Dryer Gas Coils:Check the coils 279834 and see if they test good. You can test the coils using a multi-meter TJMA-DM1. The two prong coil will read 1,000-1,300 ohms, and the three prong coil will read 1,300-1,400 ohms across prongs 1&2, and 500-600 ohms across prongs 1&3. The gas valve is part #279923. Thank You.
Can you buy a timer motor only?
Answer Unfortunately, the timer motor is only available with the timer.
