Thanks for the question.

does it heat only the first few minutes and only when the dryer is cold.

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
i guess so. If i put dry cloth and check them after 2 minutes, then they come out feeling hot. If I put wet cloth then they still come out not dried. I hope i've answered your question
Expert:  John replied 6 years ago.
I think I know what the problem is but just to make sure star a load and tell me if the heat comes on again in the 1/2 hr , let me know.
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Empty load or with wet cloth ?
Expert:  John replied 6 years ago.
a full load of clothes please.
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Ok, the half hour is done and the cloth are still wet.

The problem is the gas valve , most dryers have separate coils on the valve that one is built in, thats the part you need to replace.

Ok thanks..Is it easy to replace ? and does the part comes with instructions ?
Expert:  John replied 6 years ago.
yes its easy to replace and most likely will come with the instructions, after replacing check for leaks with soap and water , we don't want to lose you.

Ok I'll order the part. I was checking another website and the price was about 15 cheaper. I'm assuming it's the same. What do you think ?
