If the flame short cycles but keeps going then the problem can be a restricted vent. One simple thing to try is to remove the vent hose and see if the flame stays on longer. Be sure to have a medium size wet load in the drum. If the drum is empty then the flame might cycle off after a very short time. If the flame comes on at first but then stops coming on even though the ignitor continues to click on and off then the problem is likely with the gas valve or coils. You can reply with any additional details for futher assistance.

After doing some additional research, I think I have figured out that the problem is likely that the gas valve coils need to be replaced, but am not sure if it could be something else. Does that sound like the most obvious diagnosis? I guess it won't hurt to try that first.

A:

If it has flame and gets warm at the beginning then most likely the thermal fuse, thermostats and timer are okay.

The key to this problem is knowing what the ignitor is doing or not doing. There is a small square plug on the front panel that can be removed so the ignitor can be viewed.

If the dryer heats to begin the cycle but stops heating mid-cycle we must know if the ignitor is continuing to glow. If it glows but there is no flame then the problem will be with the gas coils or gas valve.

It is difficult to pin down exactly which is at fault since the dryer does work at first.

One thing to try is to replace the gas coils. A kit 279834 with both coils can be obtained for about $21 dollars. The complete valve 8318277 cost close to $104 dollars.

The coils can be obtained from the following site: Sears PartsDirect .

Brand new similar dryers will start in the $300 dollar range.

We can help with do-it-yourself if you wish to give it a try.

The image below will show how to access the valve. Remember to unplug the dryer first.

You can reply with any additional details or questions for further assistance.

Thanks for the question and chance to help you with this project.
