Product Description

M Series New Style Coil Kit Specifications

When the igniter reaches a high enough temperature, these coils (Coil Valve, Dryer Gas Valve Coil Kit, Dryer Valve Coil Kit, Gas Valve Solenoid) work together to open the gas valve and allow the gas to enter the burner. This is a safety mechanism to ensure that there are no unsafe buildups of gas inside your appliance. The coils are attached to the dryer gas valve. If the dryer does not heat or heats intermittently, the coil may not be opening the gas valve. Both coils must be operational for the valve to open. No continuity would indicate a defective coil, but they can be intermittent and fail when they get hot. Both coils should be replaced when one of them is broken. This part can break as a result of material fatigue from normal use. This part measures approximately 1 inch in diameter and 1 inch in height, and is constructed of plastic and metal. It comes in black/beige. This part features a 3-terminal boost/hold coil and a 2-terminal secondary coil

Sorry, we couldn't find any existing installation instruction that matched.
Got heat only on start of cycle and no repeat of flame. Suspected coils on gas valve.
I used a multi meter to find coils failed in warmed temperature condition.
I tested main switch for different cycle operation. Main switch was worn out inside and not making good contact for soft cycles.
This dryer is 25 years old. I chose to replace all the sensors, fuses, ignitor, gas valve coils, cycle switch and thermostat.
This was cost effective for me, because now, I actually have a good dryer that might just last another 25 years. I might replace the drive belt soon. I'll order from Parts Select. This was easy and fun. Thanks!

Gas burner would heat for six or seven minutes, then shut down, and not cycle on again.
Unplugged electric power, removed lower front panel, removed fan unit cover. Was able to easily reach and test the disposable thermal fuse ok; m-coils ok but replaced; tested internal bias thermostat bad, replaced. Put fan unit cover on. Plugged dryer in to test and repair was successful. Did not install new igniter, flame sensor, or thermal cutoff fuse kit at this time but will keep for future if necessary.
Parts.Select online help made it easy for me to do this repair. I bought all possible parts $170 w. ship given the dryer age. Three day delivery Denver to Phila.
Before attempting to repair, called Kenmore service and. Was told one month before tech was available, unacceptable. Went to several appliance stores to buy new and found earliest available delivery would be 1 - 3 months! So went online to attempt repair. Found Parts Select which had numerous examples of exact problem and identified likely defective parts. So we avoided spending $1600 on a new dryer. The three installed parts were about $60! Highly recommend Parts Select.

Gas Dryer Runs With Heat for Less Than 5 minutes, Timer Won't Advance in Autodry
My gas dryer would run with heat for 5 minutes in all settings, but kick off and not heat again. Timer would not advance in autodry. Thought it was the cycling thermostat, so replaced that, but did not solve the issue. Ordered the coils, and cleaned out heavily clogged lint from bottom of lint trap, especially right above the fan motor at the bottom of the trap. Received the coils, opened the top and front, took out drum, and replaced the coils. The replacement took less than 2 minutes. Be careful putting the drum back on to make sure the felt is not caught inside the drum. You can give it a spin to make sure. Wear gloves, as I cut myself up pretty good on the edges of the dryer body. The inside of my dryer looks like a crime scene! Anyway, I put it back together, and it runs great. Solved the timer advance issue in autodry, and the heat kicks on and off when it is supposed to. Good luck! Thanks Part Select!

Flame goes out after 5 seconds.
Tilted dryer back to access the two screws on the front panel, remove front panel, by raising it up 90° and pull the wires off for the door switch, first I remove the one 5/16 self tapping screw That holds the burner assembly onto the bracket, removed the hot surface igniter screw from old burner assembly, attached to new burner assembly, reinstalled burner assembly and also cleaned orifice from gas valve, also while the front cover was off I remove the fan housing cover and vacuumed out all The lint attached to the fan assembly, unit works great again.

Heat not staying on.
Checked out the coil seemed ok. So I replaced the radiant flame sensor. No change. Then I replaced the High limit sensor still the heat was not staying on. I read some were in the troubleshooting guide that the coil can test good, but can still malfunction. So that was it new coil fix it, works like a new Dryer again.

Dryer not heating / drying properly
Removed lower and upper panel on front of dryer, realized I did not have to remove upper but it was better visually. I replaced coils using old cage replacing two coils paying attention to position. Next I replaced cycling thermostat and boosting heater (which piggy back). Lastly I replaced Radiant flame sensor (which was working, but old).
Everything worked perfect for a little over a hundred dollars, a repair person would have cost me $ 75 to $ 80 dollars for a handshake plus parts and labor. I am very pleased.

would only heat for about 7 minutes.
I replaced the thermos fuse, thermostat, igniter kit, and the M series
new style coil kit. The problem was the M series coil kit. I replaced
the other parts because this dryer is over 10 years old. I also brought
the radiant flame sensor. I spent $126.19 in parts plus shipping. If I just
just replaced the coil kit it would have 18.61 plus shipping. A new gas dryer like I have would cost about $459.00. I hope to get many more years out of this dryer. The hardest part of this repair for me was getting the front panel back on. I saved the parts that were good for futher repairs. I replaced the drum belt several years ago, still looks in good shape. I think this is a great DIY site. Just follow their instrutions. Somtimes I'll take a picture of the part before I remove it, just to be sure I replace it right.

Heat up then gas flame shuts down after 5 or so minutes igniter glows again trying to reignite but no gas supply coming out of the tube.
I ordered the top 5 items that may cause this problem based on the troubleshooting guide presented by the technicians I found in youtube. I replaced the coils and that fixed the problem. The coils are the first to go out according to techs, but I have the other parts just in case I may need them later on. My Maytag dryer which is over 19 years old is alive and working again. The coils are accessible from the bottom access panel secured by 2 nut screws, unplug the dryer first, then the coils are secured by a bracket with 2 small philips head screw, I used a stubby philips screw driver to remove the bracket, undo the 2 electrical connectors on the coils one with 2 prongs and the other with 3 prongs. Put the new coils attached the electrical connectors and secured them with the bracket. Checked for any loose wiring ensuring connectors are secured in place, then test run the dryer with the panel off so you can see the if the flame stays on, if you run the dryer without wet clothes the flame may stop after 15 or so minutes. It is better to test run the dryer with wet clothes just like when your drying fresh washed and wringed clothes. It was really easy, good luck!

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?
PartSelect logo
Hi Kaelyn, Thank you for the question. 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!

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
PartSelect logo
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!

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!
PartSelect logo
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.

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
For model number WGD5500SQ0
PartSelect logo
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!

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?
For model number MGD5640TQ0 Maytag Dryer
PartSelect logo
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.

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?
For model number LDG7600AAW
PartSelect logo
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.

The igniter will glow, then the Flame comes on for about 10 seconds, then Flame and igniter will turn off. After about a minute that's off, the igniter will turn on again and the Flame will follow soon after but the Flame again will only stay for about 10 sec. And this cycle keep repeating. What could be the problem part?
For model number DG612

Hi Ramon. Thank you for the question. I suggest replacing or testing the Radiant Flame Sensor.If you test it with a Multi Meter it shoudl read closed. Hope this helps!

Dryer heats the first time. After that i hear a rattling sound and the ignitor glows, no gas to ignite so ignitor shuts down. The process repeats but no heat. Let the dryer sit idle for a while and it will heat again once or twice.. coils?

I've been having problems with my timer advancing, and my heating doesn't turn on all the time.Could the coils for the gas be causing this?
For model number SDG305DAWW
PartSelect logo
Hi Larry, Thank you for the question. The 'M' Series New Style Coil Kit does work in line with the timer. I suggest replacing the coils first and if they do not fix the issue you may need to replace the timer. Hope this helps!
