Customer Question
I have a whirlpool gas...
I have a whirlpool gas dryer, I have replaced the gas valve coils, and thought I has checked all the thermostats / thermal fuse, what happens is the igniter glows, the gas valve clicks, gas comes on, burns correctly about 5-7 minutes, then the gas shuts off, once the unit gets back to room temp , you can stop the dryer and restart and the gas comes back on and does the same thing
