Exclamation Dryer not producing heat
Model Number: YG206KW   Brand: Magic Chef   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Hello!

The dryer functions - however does not produce heat. I purchased new thermal fuses and a new igniter and installed those last night, unfortunately without any success.

The igniter does not glow, and I do no smell any gas. I am on the verge of reading this unit its last rights. Can anyone suggest a part that may be the culprit before I make the decision to recycle this old friend?

Thank You

Sean

Have you checked the gas valve coils? They could be the problem. There is a nice video on the page too.

Whirlpool 279834 Dryer Gas Valve Coil Kit - AppliancePartsPros.com

The wiring diagram is here. There are 9 parts in circuit to make your dryer heat. Including the timer and motor's centrifugal switch. Good luck.

Thatguy,

Thank you for your post.

I did not check them, however I just went over and disconnected the wiring to each of them and checked for continuity. I am not sure if that is a valid test for these items - but both of them failed for continuity. The one with two prongs was an easy test, and for the one with three prongs, I tested it with all the 2 prong combinations - and none of them showed continuity. Is this a part that should show continuity? Also - if I replace these do I need to shut off the gas service before replacing. The way the original owner of the house built this laundry room, I would have to disconnect the utility sink completely and move it out of the way in order to get to the gas valve.

As for the diagram, I have now either replaced or tested a few of those parts. Depending on your guidance on the above question I will not do anything further until I hear from you.

Thank you very much for your time and assistance,

This video does a pretty good job of explaining how to test the coils.

Just installed the new coils.

Still nothing.

I am going to have to start from the timer on downward and see what is not firing up.
