Whirlpool gas dryer with LP Heats at first then nothing
« on: October 29, 2009, 05:53:49 PM »
Vent is clean, falme comes on and heats fine. Then the next time the ingnitor glows but never any flame. It continues like that tell the timer turns off. Where do I start?   Mike

 If your gas dryer has a good flame sensor and a good igniter AND the dryer will work some and quit, replace these:

Dryer is fixed and running good. Once again you guys were right on the first time. I shopped around and found appliance parts pro to be lowest priced even with shipping! Part was here in 2 days. You guys rock and I am telling everyone I can!!!!!   Mike
