Question about KitchenAid KGYS850LT Gas Dryer
My gas dryer starts up fine. When I watch the igniter work, it creates an orange flame that turns to blue and stays on for 3 minutes. (and the dryer is heating and tumbling). Then, it turns off and does not seem to come back on. Does anyone have an idea what might be the problem? I've cleaned all lint away and also in the vent. Thanks for your help.

The heating circuit is working perfectly except for the solenoid coils as indicated by the occasional glowing of the igniter but no gas is ignited. A gas valve closes as the solenoid coil weakens as it gets hot and does not open until it has cooled down. Replace both gas valve solenoid coils to get the dryer back into proper operation. The solenoid coils are part numbers 694539 and 694540 but also can be purchased as a kit here.
