Amana gas dryer gets hot then cools down after running 5 minutes

4 posts in this topic

Amana gas dryer gets hot then cools down after running 5 minutes.Manuf Model # PLGA50AW.  Ignitor lights up. Gas valve opens. Flame On!  Dryer heats up nicely, after 5 minutes of running flame goes out.  One minute later, Ignitor lights up but gas valve never opens again.  Ignitor lights up every about 45 seconds thereafter and the gas valve never opens.  If I let the dryer cool down I can start the whole process again.

I read many of the primers on dryer repair you posted.   I am not sure where to begin. I have cleaned the exhaust duct completely.  Any feed back would be appreciated.

I have been away for the past week on vacation.  I replaced the gas valve solenoids and were back in business.  My wife and three kids thank you!
