Question and Answers

Q:

Model DPXH46GA3WW - GE GAS DRYER

A:

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 .
