Default Admiral gas dryer little flame at spreader, then flame at air mix port only
Model Number: agd4475tq1   Brand: Admiral   Age: 5 - 10 years

Hello folks. Thanks in advance for reading.

Symptom: when on auto sensing the timer won't progress and end its own cycle. Took 5 hours to dry a load. When I push start on the timed high heat setting, igniter glows bright orange, I hear one click, tiny flame starts at the end of the flame spreader, then it goes out only to then appear at the air mixing port.

What I've done so far: opened up the exhaust vent, cleared all lint/debris, cleaned vent screen, installed brand new complete gas valve assembly (includes new igniter and coils), checked and confirmed continuity with a digital volt meter (solenoids, thermal fuse, flame sensor, timer - checked against the manufacturer's diagram, hi limit thermostat, cycling thermostat). Blower seems to flow nice and strong as well. Drum spins as it should.

I'm all out of ideas.

Please help!

Thanks

It sounds like you might have low gas pressure.

Have you had it tested? Are you on Natural gas or Propane?

Could be a bad regulator or kinked pipe. Here is a video that might help.

Thanks.

Natural gas.

Have not tested gas pressure. Don't have that reader and a tapped cap like the one in the Video.

I straightened the coil like gas pipe from the wall valve to the dryer. Also put the dryers front and back cover back on before testing the dryer.

I wonder if the gas company lowered the gas pressure or like you said, there's a bad regulator.

When I replaced the gas valve assembly I noticed a brass reducer between the gas valve assembly and the coil like gas pipe from the wall. Should I remove the reducer and connect the dryer and the gas pipe directly?

Gas company came out. Very little gas at the wall valve. They inspected further and turns out an underground leak.

Thanks for the input. When in doubt check the wall gas valve.
