Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

Was the dryer working before you changed it to propane?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
yes it's been on propane for about 2years
Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 11 months ago.
OK, so if the igniter is glowing, then all the thermostats and controls are working, unfortunately you have a problem with your gas valve itself. Make sure you have gas getting to the dryer from your house. If so, then your gas valve would need to be replaced because it's not opening to allow gas to flow I'm afraid to say.

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
It is a older dryer should I fix or will it be so $ that I should buy a new one ?
Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 11 months ago.
The cost of a new gas valve is about $150, so unless you feel comfortable replacing the part and messing with gas lines yourself, it wouldn't even be worth it. But I would think getting a new dryer is the better option either way.

How should I check to see if I am getting propane from tank to dryer it runs of 5 gallon tank with rubber hose which has a has valve on it to I think
Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 11 months ago.
Turn the gas off. Then disconnect the gas line from the back of the dryer. Then turn the gas on for a second or so and see if gas comes out.
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Is there any tricks to minipulate has valve or to unstuck it Becuse it's getting propane to dryer so that's the problem
Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 11 months ago.
Not really you can try to tap the valve with a small hammer or screwdriver handle, but if it won't open, then the valve would need to be replaced.
