GE Gas Dryer
« on: November 30, 2010, 02:47:10 PM »

Hi, I am working on a DDC4580NLL. The Dryer Glow stick comes on and will not ignite, keeps coming on repeatedly every minute or so. All the jobs before I have done the glow stick would come on and then the gas would ignite once or twice then never again. I know from my experience that is the coils but this time it does not even ignite once, checked gas ok. Before I buy the coils I was wondering if it could be anything else? Does anyone know if the standard Whirlpool  coil kit M type would fit in that GE? Thanks in advance.

Check the flame sensor.
The coils are inter-changeable.

I think you may need the K-style Coil Kit

I don't envy the job of replacing those coils!  However, fixing the dryer is much more cost efficient than buying a new one.  Good luck to you!
I prefer to call my self a handyman, because it sounds better than Jack of all trades!

Those are not the new style. They are the old style coils. Stack them correctly or the new ones won't work. Pay attention to how them old coil wire colors are. Put new back the same as the old.
