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.

  • No heat or not enough heat.

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:

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!

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.

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 .

No heat from dyer

Well, this is quite easy really. I found the problem after plucking and chucking a few parts but it was finally the igniter that was the problem. After taking the front section panel off to access the components, take the time to unscrew the igniter and see if it is cracked. That is what happened to my unit. I replaced to the new M series coils as well but the issue was the igniter. Look very carefully for a crack, the one on my unit was very small. You can ohm it out with a meter and if it reads open it is cracked.

Gas dryer would produce heat for short time, then continue to run but with no heat.

Thanks to reports from others, I concluded that most likely the gas ignition coils (one or both) were no longer functioning properly. I replaced both with the 'M' Series New Style Coil Kit which is about 1/2 the price of either coil individually -- yes,true,go figure! The actual replacement took only about 10 minutes. What was most difficult and took the most time was the removal of the front panel of the cabinet -- this was difficult only because there were no instructions in my owner's manual (or any other source I could find) and it took me awhile to figure it out. Now I could do the whole job in about 20 minutes! The detailed instructions from others as to the process of replacing the coils was invaluable -- I don't know if I would have been able to figure that out on my own. But most important was the information that enabled me to diagnose the problem in the first place. Thank you, all you previous comment contributors.

Dryer heats once when turned on and then you have to wait 15 minutes to restart it

Well, had I read more of the reviews on this website, I would have learned that my problem was the valve coils. Instead, I assumed it was the igniter, so I ordered and installed a new igniter to no avail. I was about to just go buy a new dryer at Home Depot and spend $600, but I had to try again so I read more reviews on this website and began measuring resistances across the valve coils and discovered I had a bad one. I ordered both just to be safe, and installed them and quickly enjoyed my first uninterrupted dryer cycle in over a year (for over a year, I had been stopping and restarting my dryer about 10 times for each cycle). So THANKS for this website and to all the home technicians who posted symptoms, resistances, and how-to-do-its to help me get this done. It was an empowering experience to fix this and have bookmarked this website for any future appliance fixes. It's a great website with all its schematics and postings.

No flame on burner after initial ignite

I shut off the power supply (pulled plug) . Opened the front access door on bottom of dryer, The two coils sat on top of burner unit, with a plate and 2 Phillip head screws securing them. .I used a small set of pliers to pull the terminals off, then I used a short Phillip head screw driver due to the proximity of the dryer drum close by. The coils slide off, slide the new ones on, re secure the plate with screws, reconnect the terminals, plug in the power cord and away you are for a fraction of the cost.

The gas would not ignite.

First we removed the front panel then the door. Removed the old coils and put in the new coils, oh yeah don't forget to disconnect the power supply first. Sure enough that was all it took and it runs great. You really can fix your own appliance if you take the time to do some research.

Gas dryer would not ignite.

I removed two wires from the coil valves. Then I removed two screws from the bracket that holds the coil valves in place. I removed the faulty coil valves and replaced them with the new ones. Put the bracket back on and replaced the two screws and wires. It took almost 5 minutes. The dryer is like new once again.
