Model: GGW9250PW3 Type: BADT-NAT-1206006-EL20 I smell gas! I have shut off the gas line to the dryer. The dryer is probably older than 5 years. Does this model have a history showing a likely component to develop a leak?
Answer Hello Bob,
This unit has as high a likely hood of a gas leak as any other gas unit out there. I would make up a gas leak solution by putting one teaspoon of liquid soap, (or a little less), to a quart of water and spray it on the gas lines. If there is a leak and the solution is no thicker than that, it will produce a little pile of bubbles at the leak.
Note: This question is for the older version of this part, but we thought you might still find it helpful
Dryer works fine and timer advances if you use in minutes to dry mode. If you use the regular or permanent press cycles the timer will not advance and clothes do not dryer. Have swapped out the coils and the timer with no luck.
At a bit of a loss on this one...
Answer Tim, Your going to need to check and clean the exhaust vent and vent hood, check and remove any debris from the blower housing and internal exhaust pipes and check the tumbler seals for tears and holes. Once all's checked then consider the regulating thermostat 694674 and the hi limit switch 279048. The way this dryer operates on an "auto cycle" The proper temperature has to be maintained, if there is an air flow problem or the thermostats "open" before the temperature is reached, the timer will not advance. In timed dry, the timer operates for the selected amount of time, wether the clothes dry or not.
