I agree and here is one example of a member having a heck of a time because of cheap coils.

Dang! Jumped the gun and bought/paid for them already. Well, I will give them a try since they have been shipped even. Thanks for the heads up that they probably won't work or last.
Also, thanks for the resistance readings of the coils. the 2 pin coil is good and on the 3 pin coil, the outer pins are good but the center pin is wide open. Sure explains why it wont stay lit.
Thanks again.


  Not recommended to buy appliance parts from amazon or ebay, gas valve solenoids in particular. Iv'e heard numerous times about cheap junk coils from those sites. Iv'e heard of them being replaced two and three times and then the tech finally gets genuine Whirlpool FSP coils which finally fixes the problem. If your lucky, the coils will work and if your luckier still, they will last. The two wire coil should read about 1220 ohms, three wire between outer terminals (blk and wht) 560 ohms and between blk and blu should be about 1365 ohms (holding coil).

Well after jumping the gun and buying the non OEM coils, (as mentioned above), they arrived last Thursday and that got the dryer working again. So far, so good but I think we will need some luck in having them last. If further problems arise, I will go back with OEM parts at that time.
Thanks again for the help on this one. The resistance of the coils was right in line too.
