This free troubleshooting video shows step-by-step instructions on replacing the gas valve solenoid coil kit on Whirlpool, Kenmore, Sears, Maytag, and Amana dryers.

Tools Needed: Hex socket, flat head screwdriver, Phillips head screwdriver, putty knife

The gas valve has two or more electric solenoids which open the valve to let the gas flow into the burner assembly.

The gas valve coils can fail, but testing them can be inconclusive. If at any time during the drying process you observe the igniter glowing and then shutting off without establishing a flame, then one or more of the gas valve coils are probably defective and will need to be replaced. Keep in mind the coils can fail several minutes into the drying cycle which will result in the dryer taking too long to dry.
