Manufactured by Whirlpool

This is an M series new style coil kit, used in gas dryers. When the igniter reaches a high enough temperature, these coils work together to let the gas enter the dryer. The coils open the gas valve; if the valve does not open the heating element will not ignite. Both coils must be operational for the valve to open. This is a safety mechanism to ensure that there are no unsafe buildups of gas inside your appliance. This kit comes with a three-terminal boost/hold coil, and a two-terminal main coil. Each part is approximately 1 1/4 inches in diameter. If the igniter glows but shuts off without igniting gas, it means one of both of your valves is faulty. We recommend you replace these as a set. Before you begin this repair unplug your appliance and shut off the gas supply.

This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Kenmore, Maytag, Roper, KitchenAid, Amana, Magic Chef, Crosley, Speed Queen, Estate, Admiral, Norge, Inglis, Jenn-Air, Hoover, International.

This part works with the following products: Dryer, Washer Dryer Combo.

This part fixes the following symptoms:

  • No heat or not enough heat.
  • Takes too long to dry.
  • Shuts off too soon.
  • Timer will not advance.
  • Will Not Start.
  • Noisy.

Question:

If the flame in my dryer is only lasting for a few seconds and then shutting off is it the igniters problem? What should I be looking for in this situation?

Kaelyn
Answer:

Hi Kaelyn, the coils can be tested using a multi-meter tool. The 2-prong coil read 1,000-1,300 ohms. The 3-prong coil will read 1,300-1,400 ohms across prongs 1 and 2, and 500-600 ohms across prongs 1 and 3. Please let us know if you have any further questions.

Question:

I’m having problems with my dryer because I don’t think there is any gas but the igniter is coming on. Would the gas valve coil kit solve this

Joelle
Answer:

Hi Joelle, yes this should fix your problem. Unfortunately, there is no real way to test which coil is the problem so both should be replaced at the same time, which is why this assembly will come with 2. I hope this helps!

Question:

I think my coils need replacing because I am not getting heat in my dryer… but how do I check the igniter, where is it? Id rather wait to buy this part and make sure that I actually need it!

Olie
Answer:

Hello Olie, we suggest removing the front panel and the drum, and then turn the dryer on. When the dryer turns on, pay attention to the igniter and see what it does. Best of luck with this repair.

Question:

I replaced the thermostat but now i want to replace the coils. But i see nothing on videos or manuals that shows me where they are. Can you give me direction?

Fred for model number MGD5640TQ0 Maytag Dryer
Answer:

Hi Fred, Thank you for your inquiry. The coils are located on the bottom left hand front corner of your appliance. You will have to remove the front panel of your appliance to be able to get to it. Good luck with your repair.

Question:

I just took out the coils from my older Maytag gas drier. I took ohm readings with my fluke meter. Both are reading zero resistance. Does this mean they are bad?

Mark for model number LDG7600AAW
Answer:

Hi Mark, Thank you for your question. The coils should be reading a resistance of 1000 - 2000 ohms. If it is zero, then your coils are bad. Good luck with your repair.

Question:

Which coil goes close to burner 2 wire or 3

Terry
Answer:

Hi Terry, Thank you for your question. The coil that has 3 prongs on it goes on closest to the front of the machine (or closest to you when you have the panel open and are looking at the parts to replace them). The coil with 2 prongs is placed on the back mounting position. I hope this helps. Good luck with your repair.

Question:

Hello when i turn on my clothe dryer i notice that my gas valve opens only once in the first start then the igniter turns on normaly but not the gas valve no flames at all i then turn off the dryer wait a few minutes and it ignites Flame once and again same problem the igniter turns red hot at its normal phase but no Flame what could it be thank you

David for model number WGD5500SQ0
Answer:

Hi David, Thank you for your question. There are a few parts that might cause this problem, however you should check your Radiant Flame Sensor to see if it is malfunctioning. This part senses heat from the igniter to monitor if it is hot enough to ignite gas to light the burner. Once the igniter is hot enough it will open the valve and allow gas to flow. This is a safety mechanism to prevent dangerous levels of gas from building up. I hope that helps!

My gas dryer was drying intermittantly. The gas valve wasn't opening when the igniter was firing up.

rts came quickly & I got started. First, I unplugged the dryer and pulled it away from the wall about a foot. this was done so the top would have clearance when it was lifted up. Next, I removed the lint trap and then took the two screws under the lint trap door out. Then you use a screwdriver(flat blade) to release the top of the dryer. The release points are about 1-2 inches from the edge of dryer. Next pull the wire connector apart so the front can be removed. The connector is on the right side, front corner, facing the dryer. There are two hexhead screws near the top on both sides. Remove the and the front will come apart as you lift it slightly. Then you disengage the tub belt. Once this is done the tub can be lifted out and set aside/ take care to remember each things position as you take it apart, so you will not get confused when you reassemble. Now the solinoid assembley is easy to get to. Use a phillips screw driver and remove the two screws that retain the bracket that holds the solinoids in place.. Lift the bracket and remove one solinoid at a time. Pull the wire from it and plug the new, like solinoid to the wire and put it back in place. then do the other one. set the bracket back over the new kit and replace the screws to the bracket. Set the tub back in, rethread the belt to the drive wheel. Next put the front back on making sure the bottom part slips into the two sides of the dryer.Replace the hexhead screws on each side; plug the wire connector together. Now , pull the lid down into position and press into place. Replace the lint trap screws and replace the lint trap. Plug dryer up and we are done. Repossition the dryer to its original place. It really was not a hard job at all. Thank-you Susan for your help and expertise.

Dryer not heating after 5-10 minutes

Remove the dryer door hinges from whichever side they are attached to.Remove the two plastic tabs on the opposite side from hinges. Tilt the front panel forward and lift to remove. All the parts are located in the bottom front side of dryer. Two screws remove coil valve cover, the coils slide upward for removal. One coil has two prongs, one has three, replace them in correct positions and reattach cover. One screw holds igniter in place, remove and unplug old one, carefully install new one so not to damage it. Thermostat has one screw holding it in, remove and unplug four wires, remember to plug each wire into new thermostat before removing the next one so you don't wire it incorrectly. Reinstall front panel of dryer and you're done.

No heat or intermittent heat

Firstly, i checked the website for Problems and solutions. i was able to diagnose 2 possible sources of the problem. The Thermostat or the coils. i bought the both.I removed the front.I checked the right bottom where the burner was located. i traced the location of the coils. i removed just 2 screws to free them from the bracket. then replaced the new ones. it works just as before. i did not replace the thermostat. Please disconnect the power supply and the gas supply before doing any repair.

Need to replace dryer belt

watched a youtube video. it only described how to put the belt on as it isn't even visible as you're trying to loop the belt around a pulley, drum and the clutch without a twist in the belt. i understand why there wasn't video. unless you're good at reaching in behind the motor and drum with little room to get your arms and hands and through to loop around the clutch roller without a twisted loop which would break the belt within minutes, i suggest calling the 'maytag' repairman as i am forced because there's a trick to it!

Dryer would not heat.

Diagnose that the circuit is functioning up to the igniter. This is done by removing the peep hole cover on the bottom front panel, turn the dryer on and watch for a glowing igniter. My dryer would still ignite the first time because the coils would not show an "open" until they heated up. So if you see the igniter glow it is most likely your coils are bad. Remove two screws from lint trap area on top of dryer. Pry up on top panel at the two clips. Panel is on hinges, so flip it out of the way or just brace it with something enough to keep it off the front panel. Remove the two bolts from inside top corners of the front panel. Use a small punch or screw driver to push in on the tab to release the doors electrical connector. Pull straight up on front panel to remove it from bottom clips. The gas valve is very easy to get to without removing the drum. If needed for inspection or cleaning, just pull back on the belt tensioner to remove the belt from the motor and then pull the drum out. Or just use a stubby phillips screw driver to remove the bracket from the top of the ignition coils. Use a very small flat head screw driver to lift the locking tab on each electrical connector while removing. Remove the coils and place new ones in very same position (note the tab or key way of the coils faces up and are defined in the bracket). Re-assemble all parts making sure connections are tight and drum is correctly mounted. Note: if you remove the drum, return the belt back, in a loop, through the tensioner. This part hurt my head for a moment because I did not pay attention. Also a good idea to vacuum the debris and lint while your in there! As always check to make sure the exhaust pipe is clear. Have fun!

Igniter works, valves open, gas ignitestation then shuts off

All the videos said the same thing. If the Igniter works and the gas ignites bit shuts off soon after that, then the coils are bad. I bought the coils and it didn't fix the problem. My bad, I should have put my meter on it to test it before I bought the part and waited a week to get the coils. Now I'm in the process of illuminating the sensors. I will figure it out. Make sure you use the meter. It will save you the headaches.

Dryer would not heat

Replaced Coil kit and internal bias thermostat. Checked overheat fuse. Still not heat. R/P igniter and igniter thermostat to be sure not bad. Still no light or heat to ignitor. Pulled wires from two thermostats in series where flame comes out and found them burnt and one completely open. Repaired wire and dryer works. Had relied on various videos to get me through process. Parts were not that expensive so I don't really think a waste of money compared to calling a repair person.

No heat from dryer

This dryer is a commercial model and the instructions from the site isn't 100% accurate. To replace the thermal fuse and coils, you have to remove the bottom panel in front of the dryer. There two metal clips in the bottom that need to removed to pull out the panel. Once removed, removed the lint metal housing and lint catcher to access the thermal fuse. You will also see the coil pack to the right. Use a nut driver for the lint housing and right angle Philip screwdriver for the coil pack. Clean out the lint housing before reinstalled the cover.

Dryer not drying- gas valve coil resistance measured 'open'.

Unplug dryer first! Remove toe panel with 1/4" nut driver on each lower corner. Gas assembly will be on the right immediately below right of drum. Use a short Phillips screwdriver to break loose two screws retaining hold-down plate on gas valve coils. I used an adjustable wrench to turn the screwdriver on screws which are not easy to apply torque to. Each coil will easily slip off stem. Disconnect catch on plug with very small flat tip screwdriver for each coil, then pull off connector. Ensure the 3-terminal coil goes to the front and the 2-terminal to the rear. Note aligning tips on coils which correspond to holes in hold down plate. Reassemble in reverse order except for toe panel. Plug in dryer and verify gas valve operation and flame presence. Replace toe panel.

Dryer not getting clothes dry

Dryer was getting hot at start of cycle and would drop out flame and then cycle flame every 45 sec to 1 min. Pulled of panel to observe this and thought it was a heat sensor problem. Went online and people were saying a coil could be bad. I took coils out and tested them and they tested good but I bought new ones anyway as I figured they were going out of range as they heated up, This proved correct as dryer works .
