Hi All -- I am having an issue with my GE dryer (Model# DPSR483GAWW). When I start the dryer, the dryer starts up....the flame comes on....the dryer gets hot....then the flame goes out and doesn't come back on. When I stop and restart the dryer it spins fine, but when the flame is supposed to turn on there is a "buzzing" or "vibrating" coming from the lower right corner. It continues making this noise for about 15 seconds then stops. The dryer will continue to spin but doesn't get hot to dry the cloths. I have replaced the vent and hose and disassembled the ducting within the dryer and thoroughly cleaned it out. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.

Sounds like you need to replace the coils on the top of your gas valve, they are getting weak and cannot open the valve when they are hot...

Thanks Pegi for the reply. I will look into replacing them. Does the drum need to come out in order to change these or is there an easier way?

gas valve should be under the drum would think, coils are on top of the valve..

I just changed the coils on mine without removing the drum. I just opened the top, removed the face and then used a block of wood between the drum and the frame work to hold the drum up away to the left enough to reach in and do the replacement.

I ended up changing out the coils and it worked fine. Thanks all.
