Do you have voltage to the three tab coil ?
And does the igniter glow when trying to light the flame?
ok so you do NOT have voltage on both of the coils on the three tab coil? is that correct
ok remove the power to the dryer and ohm out on the coil terminal 2 to 3 does you have continuity?
Yes you do have continuity?
and do you have an Amperage probe meter?
ok start the dryer and read the igniter amp draw it should be 32.8 -3.2 amps
ok and you have the clamp around on of the igniter wires correct?
OK and I see I sent wrong info should have been 2.8-3.2 not 32.8
Ok so the igniter is what feed voltage to the gas valve coils and on one coil you get no voltage so it is either the gas valve coils or you may have a broken wire inside the insulation on the harness
ok Now you just replaced the coils today with Samsung parts? I ask because it does not show that you can purchase the coils as a separate part on the parts breakdown .
Not that I`m showing!! had the valve been replaced before?
Here is what the manufacture shows as a replacement .
Does the gas valve even look like the one I send you in the link?
This is an electronic controlled unit you can not remove the wires from the component when testing for voltage ,the triacs on the control board will not give you true voltage. when you do that.
I would have assumed by the way you talked that you knew what you were doing !
You give the opinion that you are a service tech ,
I an going off of just what the manufacture supplies all parts dealers .off of the model number you have given me .
See for your self!!
Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! The attached page shows how to test the valve, igniter and radiant sensor. If all test good, the control is likely faulty.
It does not sound like you are going to work with me, so I will place your question back to the list. Good luck.
