No Heat GE GAS DRYER - Model DPXH46GA3WW

A:

It can definitely be frustrating having a gas dryer not heating. I have taken some time to research your question here on the Manage My Life website and I noticed that someone else had asked a similar question with a posted response from an expert. I attached the link below if you are interested in viewing. I hope the link that I provided is helpful. Have a great day.

The key to this problem is knowing what the ignitor is doing.

If the flame comes on once but then doesn't come on again even though the ignitor glows and shuts off then most likely the gas valve or coils is the problem.

If the ignitor works once then the timer, flame sensor and ignitor are most likely okay.

The WE14X207 gas valve cost approximately $255.44 while both coils WE04X10020 and WE04X10048 cost about $53.49 each.

This is a difficult problem to check without removing the drum and bypassing the belt switch.

I would suggest a technician check and repair this problem. You can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

You can reply with any additional details for further assistance.

I provided information about the igniter for this dryer in the first image below. The second image shows the theory of operation for the gas valve in this type of dryer. Your dryer has a mechanical timer and thermostat system that is shown in the third image. If the igniter is getting voltage and glowing, then the timer and thermostats in the circuit are apparently okay. You can unplug the dryer and check the igniter as shown in the first image. You can also check the flame sensor for continuity at room temperature.

Since the dryer is intermittently heating, then you could have a problem with the gas valve coils. If these coils are weak, then they will not be able to open the gas valve for ignition.

You can order parts from the Sears PartsDirect website once you determine the failed component.

These tips may help. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

This could be a difficult failure to diagnose. 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 .

For a while the problem was intermittent and it appeared to work better on the timed setting then on the moisture setting. However recently it will not heat at all. I tested the Igniter and it shows 70 ohms also after trying to run it I quickly checked and it was hot. I also tested the flame sensor and it shows continuity. I feel like it is not the igniter and not the flame sensor so it may have something to do with the gas valve coils and will not open for gas. Any suggestions would be most appreciated.
