Question and Answers

Q:

Why does my gas dryer get hot initially but stops heating within 10 minutes?

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Based on your symptom and details it sounds like it may have weak solenoid coils. I recommend removing the small square plastic inspection cover located below the dryer door by prying it out. Start the dryer and then watch and monitor the glow bar ignitor and burner assembly. You will need to monitor the operation for 10 minutes or until you find the glow bar ignitor glowing red and then fading off without burner ignition. If you find the glow bar glowing red and then fading off without burner ignition, replace both solenoid coils mounted on top of the gas valve assembly.

I added a YouTube video showing how to access and replace the solenoid coils. The solenoid kit is part #279834 which is available at Sears PartsDirect . NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before servicing your dryer.
