Whirlpool Cabrio Gas
« on: June 21, 2013, 09:38:50 PM »
Hi, I have a Whirlpool Cabrio gas dryer.  It's not drying cloths properly.  I've watched some videos and read some threads but do not see my problem.  I turn it on and the pilot will light up but 3/4 of the time the flame will not light, the pilot just goes out after 10-15 seconds.  Any help would be great.  Thanks

Thanks for replying. Both sites show no coil kit available, only the entire gas valve available.

Thanks for the replay Tgoods. Playing with it a little more, when the flame does ignite it will work for a while and then go out. The dryer will continue to spin but not dry fully. Is this still the best diagnosis?

Yes, those coils can be really intermittent.

if it is one of them Cab with the 2 belts you may need to take it apart and clean it up good, make sure that small belt is in tact
