Amana gas dryer model DLG330RAW with s/n 11930227AJ
« on: March 24, 2022, 02:43:55 PM »

The above Amana gas dryer dryer was given to  me for scrap or possible repair. It is very clean inside and out. The motor turns the drum properly but I cannot get it to heat. The ignitor , flame sensor., gas valve Solenoids and thermostats and timer have all been checked or changed  with no success. The unit will turn on the ignitor and it should activate the solenoids to allow gas to flow but it does not. I suspect the gas valve as it hums and makes noise when the ignitor turns off which is when it should.  The gas valve assembly is no longer available as a replacement. I have several old but usable gas valves but the configuration is wrong and wondered if anyone has a valve to fit this dryer. The valves I have are not usable since the orifice port is on the wrong side as compared to the original. HELP !

These White-Rodgers gas valves (25M01A) are available for right or left side outputs: 25M01A-100 (right) or 25M-01A-101 (left). (SupplyHouse.com) stocks them for $65.

As a temporary approach I installed an older gas valve to verify the problem was indeed the gas valve. It reacted as I expected but the orifice is too large and produced a flame with excessive blowback. I will have to decide if I want to spend the extra money to get the proper valve assembly as this present arrangement is not safe.

What are the problems with a gas dryer that causes blowback of the flame  at the valve and corrections ?

I was able to install an older gas valve and it works to light the flame but still have a problem with the flame blowback. Any suggestions ?

The blowback problem was eliminated by replacing the drum and all covers. This made the air flow correct. I am putting a few pictures in this entry to document what I did to make an alternate valve fit and work
