Question and Answers

Q:

Where would I look for a glowing ignitor in my gas dryer?

A:


On the front panel of your dryer underneath the door on the left side is a plastic plug. Using a small screwdriver or a not sharp kitchen knife, you can pry the edge up and remove the plastic plug. Use a cloth between the screwdriver or knife and the dryer front to prevent scratching the front of the dryer. Start the dryer in high heat and look through the opening the plug came out of. If the ignitor is working, it will light up the entire bottom of the dryer. It is easy to see.

I don't see any glow. I replaced the solenoid about 3 years ago. Again my dryer is not heating and I was thinking it could be the solenoid so again but there is no glow at all. I would like to try to repair myself again if it's as easy as replacing the solenoid again. Could that be the problem if there is no glow at all?

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The igniter must be receive voltage and it must glow before the gas valve will open. I recommend to pry the small plastic square inspection hole cover off located below the door and then start the dryer. If you do not see the glow bar igniter glowing, it could have a broken igniter or one of the other components in the igniter circuit could be faulty. If the igniter is glowing and then fading off, then it likely has faulty solenoid coils. Since you are not hearing the click, I would suspect a broken igniter or a faulty thermal fuse. The thermal fuse in located at the back of the dryer. The thermal fuse will be located on the blower housing and it will have a red and blue wire connected to it.

In order to access the glow bar igniter, the front panel will need to be taken off. See images below. The thermal fuse and the igniter can be disconnected and tested for continuity with an Ohm meter. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before servicing.

Check the things I have covered here and if I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

I looked in the inspection squear and I can see the igniter glowing. Sometimes it will light and everything is fine, othertimes it doesn't light and the glowing fades away. When it does come on it will work good for a while but then it stops heating before the cycle is finished and never comes back on.

Sam: Based on your details, the two solenoid coils on the gas will need to be replaced and that should resolve the intermittent burner ignition. You can order a coil kit #279834 at Sears Parts Direct. The URL is below. [Sears PartsDirect | http://www.searspartsdirect.com?sid=MMLxexpertxmerch]
