Lightbulb Replacing Kitchen Aid (Whirlpool) gas valve coils (Solenoid Kit)
Model Number: KGYS750GQ1   Brand: Kitchen Aid   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


My dryer does not heat. The igniter glows for a few seconds and then goes out. I ordered the gas valve coils (Solenoid Kit), but was informed it does not come with directions.

1. I think I need to remove the drum. Does this only involve removing the belt
from the pulley?

2. Do I need to shut off the gas valve? If so, can I shut off the valve outside the
dryer that is on the basement wall? If I need to shut off the valve inside the
dryer, I need instructions as to what it looks like, where it is and how to turn it,
including what tool to use. Do I need to test for gas leak when I turn it back on?

3. Please provide directions for accessing, removing and replacing the solenoids.
I prefer to remove as few parts and screws as necessary. Hopefully, I won’t
need to touch the igniter, since that gray area is so sensitive. Do the Solenoids
simply pull out and push in by hand or do I need to use a needle nose pliers?

Thanks for the assistance.
