Timber,

I would have to think, you have a set of weak/bad, gas valve coils/solenoids.

Part number: AP3094251

Part number: AP3094251


Based on your post information.

It's not a major or costly repair, and can be done with basic hand tools and a little time.

Good Luck,

Not an easy one without being able to actually see the unit in operation. Could be several things. Can you tell me how you are absolutely sure the venting system is not obstructed? A lot of times customers tell me, "oh, its not the vents, we just had them cleaned by such and such company," then I say, "really? thats great, where is your vent so I can check it?" 80 percent of the time, the venting system was never cleaned properly.

So lets start there Timber,

Took the front off (after getting shocked by the door switch, I unplugged the machine) and I cleaned it with the shopvac, when the dryer is on the "air" comes through to the outside...

Without me being in front of the unit the test I recommend to people for this issue is: disconnect the vent from the back of the dryer so the hot air just comes out the back. See if problem is still there. If it is then as Joe stated, try replacing the 2 solenoid coils.

Timber,

There's a couple of ways, you can run the dryer, and listen closely, If after a few minutes(10 or 15) you do not "hear" the gas burner ignite, you can pretty much figure a bad set of coils.

If you decide to circuit test the coil assemblies, with a meter. do the same thing, run the dryer for 15 to 20 minutes, (have the unit ready to dismantle and get to the gas valve.

The 2 terminal coil should read 1000 to 1300 ohms resistance.
The 3 terminal coil should read 1300 to 1400 ohms resistancepins 1 to pin 2.
Pin 1 to pin 3 should be 500 too 600 ohms. pins are from left to right, looking at the terminals on the coil(s).
A "cold" coil, will check fine, that's why you need to run the dryer in a heat cycle for a few minutes, so they will show the resistance loss.

Joe thank you! Testing the circuits? Well...they tested "correct"...
BUT after that first initial "heat" coming on and lasting for 15 minutes or so, the heat never again comes on. Is it possible that it is still the set of coils? or is there some sort of thermastat type thing that isn't telling the heat to come back on?
Ardvaark, I did as you suggested and let it run with out the vent, still the same thing...first 15 minutes, heat up...after that, nothing...Again, thanks for the help!

This is why I hate working on dryers. : (
Does this happen on all heat settings? I'm starting to think it one of the upper controls although it could be the thermostat.

OK...turned off the lights, saw the glow come from the bottom of the dryer, ( yes, this is all of the settings) never heard the "gas flow" it would go dark again, after about 45 seconds or so...glow would return, last 10-15 seconds and again dark...
