Your Precious Words:
After doing the diagnostics it appears that I need new solenoids on the gas burner. Do you have these or do I need to buy the who burner assembly

Hi David,

If the coils (or solenoids) on the gas valve are bad, they can be replaced easily and inexpensively without having to replace the gas valve itself. In fact, to replace the coils, you don’t even need to shut off the gas!

These gas valve coils often fail intermittently, making diagnosis difficult. But here’s a quick n’ easy way to check the gas valve coils on the valve in a gas dryer. Watch the burner assembly while the dryer is heating. If the igniter glows for a while and then shuts off without the gas turning on, it usually means one of these coils is bad. Don’t bother trying to figure out which one is bad– just replace both as a set to avoid aggravation later on.

The gas valve coil set is inexpensive and easy to replace. You can buy the set here with a 365-day return policy ==> http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Gas-Valve-Solenoid/279834/3479?RCAID=24038

That set will work with your model and with most common models of gas dryers out there today.
