Product Description

This OEM kit comes with two ignition coils (one three-terminal boost/hold coil, and one two-terminal secondary coil). Usually only one of them burns out, but you should replace them as a set as both have to be operational for the gas valve to open. The primary purpose of the part is to open the gas valve and allow the gas to enter the burner. This is a safety mechanism to make sure that there is never an unsafe buildup of gas inside the appliance. You will find the coils attached to the dryer gas valve. This is not an uncommon repair; it can fail due to normal material fatigue over time. To test your current parts, watch the burner, and if the igniter glows for a while and then shuts off without the gas is igniting, it usually means one of these coils is bad.

    DRYER COME ON FOR 2 MINUTES AFTER THAT FLAME SHUT OFF THE IGNITER COME FOR FEW SECOND BUT NO FLAME ?
    For model number LG8163WM
    Hello Marcelo, There are a few parts that could make your dryer turn off too soon, and all can be tested with a multimeter. Make sure you cut power to your appliance before doing any repairs or tests. First you should test your cycling thermostat, part number: FIX2053297 with a multimeter. A good thermostat will read 0. If the readout says infinity instead, your thermostat will need to be replaced. Second you should test the High Limit Thermostat, part number: FIX2201082 Place the thermostat on an electric griddle or skillet and set the heat to the temperature matching the high limit designation on your thermostat. Touch one of the probes to the left gold inner terminal and the other probe to the right inner terminal. Monitor the readout. The instrument will show between 1,000 and 1,200 ohms of resistance as it heats. If the thermostat switches off by showing zero ohms of resistance within 5 percent of the designated temperature, the thermostat is working properly; however, if the thermostat does not switch off, or switches off prematurely, the thermostat is faulty and must be replaced. The third thing it could be is the Dryer timer, part number: FIX2045997 Clip or touch one probe to the terminal from which you removed the wire. Touch the other probe to one of the other terminals. You should get a reading of zero. If you get a high reading, then the timer motor is bad and it's time to replace it. These are the most common parts that cause this issue in your appliance. So, it is suggested you check them first. We hope that helps. Good luck with your repair. If you need help placing an order, our customer service is open 7 days a week. Please feel free to give us a call. We look forward to hearing from you!

      Dryer ran but did not dry clothing.
      Best site I have ever used for repairs. First a list of what parts were needed was provided right from the start, no guessing. I followed all of the video's provided for installation instructions and and that was it. Very easy to make repairs and almost rebuilt my dated dryer to like new condition. Appliance was in very good physical condition just needed new components to bring it back. Highly recommend this site to anyone who can turn a wrench.

      To avoid the mistake I made, make sure you pop the small, square white plug towards the bottom left on the front of the dryer. This gives you a view into the heater so you can see if the igniter and other components are working. In our case, the heater would ignite and stay on for 5 minutes and then go out. As noted on this site, 50% of the time it is the gas coils so we tested them and they tested fine cold. However, testing all of the other electrical components and they tested out as well so we purchased the coil kit (again 50%). Following one of the many videos on the site, it was quite simple to get to the coils. Unplug and turn off the gas at the wall. Unscrew the two screws in the lint trap and pop up the lid with small flat screwdriver as there is a catch on each side under the lip in the front. With the top lid up, pull up and out on the front panel, the drum will stay in place but dip as you remove the front panel holding the drum in place. Reach under and to the right to remove the belt around the drum so you can remove the drum. The coils are right in front and are easily removed with a phillips screwdriver to remove the cap holding the coils. The coils are keyed and just slide out and into place. Replace the cap and reverse the steps. However, while you have the dryer apart, it is a good idea to remove all of the extra lint as we also did the same removing the back panel and the lint trap apparatus. We had quite the collection of lint and stuff in the blower that could never be removed without taking this apart so I highly suggest you take a look. It is about 10 phillips screws holding everything in place. With the coils in place, the dryer starts hot and stays hot. Repaired in under an hour and under $25 thanks to this site!

      Took off back panel of dryer and be removed old thermostat and thermal fuse. Replaced with the new one and wired up by transferring one wire at a time. Took apart top and front of dryer to get to coil valve. Replaced with new ones. Repair person would have posted 150 to diagnose and additional 50 per part got all three parts shipped for 50 so did it myself and saved at least 250.

      Our Whirlpool dryer had stopped beating.
      I initially thought to replace the heater element, however the website gave me a list of the possible issues, with the probability ratings conveniently listed next to the part numbers. Not knowing exactly which part was needed I decided to replace all three just to be on the safe side. The parts arrived quickly (about five days) and the installation was easy and straightforward. Total cost for this project was about $50 bucks, which sure beats buying a brand new dryer.

      it wouldn't heat up enough to dry clothes
      Replaced the coils and the fuse. I also cleaned the vent pipe which had a lot of lint in it. I now wish I had cleaned the vent pipe before I ever ordered parts. I might have been fine by just cleaning the lint out of the vent pipe. Anyway the dryer works fantastic now.

      The coil kit was malfunctioning. Difficult to fully diagnosis as the problem.
      The coil kit showed the correct numbers and it worked intermittently. However, when replaced everything worked OK. I also replaced the igniter, however, I do not believed it was a problem. However, I left in the new igniter.

      Cost was $114.00 to replace all parts , It took longer to take apart & test everything than it did to do the repair ! I tested all parts twice , everything would test fine , I put it all back together and the dryer worked for 5 minutes , did that twice and decided to order all the parts an be done with it . Ordered the parts , that showed up at my door in 2 days !!! Turned OFF gas , took off vent hose , took back off with 8 screws , popped up top in the front , took 2 screws off the top in the back removing the brackets , Inside the front under the top removed 2 screws holding on the front , lifted the front and removed . All parts only have 1 or 2 screws holding them in place , removed 1 part at a time , removing and replacing 1 wire from old part to the new part so I did not mix up the wires , replace the part and go to the next part . It was pretty self explanatory replacing the parts , It took 20 minutes to take apart , replace the parts and put back together so my loving wife could do laundry again. You don't realize what a inconvenience it is to go without a dryer for 3 days when you have had one for 37 yrs ..... THANK YOU , 3 days can seem like forever when someone is not happy , but it was much much better than waiting 7 to 10 days for the wrong parts from somewhere else . You have the BEST parts website that I have EVER used !!! THANK YOU AGAIN , Donald
