I found several postings with the same problem but no solution. My dryer when I start it on a heat cycle it heats up and then stops heating, but it will continue to run with no heat. I can mess with it and get it to start again, but then it will stop heating again and not come back on until I mess with it again. I can fix it if I knew what to replace or do, but I can not seem to find the right answer. Can anyone help?

** I can mess with it and get it to start again **

What exactly do you "mess" with to get it running again???

** I start it on a heat cycle it heats up and then stops heating **

What is the burner's ignitor doing at that time?

** I can fix it if I knew what to replace or do, but I can not seem to find the right answer. **

The "right" answer will only come from actual testing of the appliance itself. The best anyone at a remote location will be able to do is guess at possible causes... once *detailed* problem symptoms are provided.

Okay maybe this will help. I turn the dryer on for a full cycle about 40 minutes or a little more. I used Intellidry Regular cycle. This is how the cycle happened. The flame ignited and lasted for 2:30 minutes, and after every minute the igniter glowed orange for 10 second and off no flame and after another minute, igniter for 10 sec, no flame and so on, at 8:30 minutes i got flame for 2 minutes about and back to igniter every 1 minute fo 10 sec until 40 minute cycle over. With no more flames to finish the cycle. I guess what I did to mess with it was I would turn the dryer off and re start it at the begining of a cycle and this is what it does in a new cycle as I described at the first of this message. Can you help me or do you need some other test to go by? Thank You

That symptoms often occur when the solenoid(s) on the gas burner valve becomes intermittent, which is a very common way they fail.

- Dryer Gas Valve Solenoid Coil Set

Those same symptoms however could also be caused by the dryer's control system shutting off power to the burner... for whatever reason.

Power to the burner assembly would need to be confirmed or the continuity of those solenoid coils checked, *at the time the trouble occurred* to isolate the probable cause. If power to the burner assembly was stopping, further testing would then be required to find the reason for that stoppage.
