FAN
GAS
VALVE
AIR DUCT
D282SE3A
The dryer uses heated air to dry loads of laundry. When the motor is started, the exhaust fan pulls room temperature
air in through louvers at the rear of the dryer and over the heat source (burner flame for gas and heating element for
electric). The heated air moves through the heater duct and into the cylinder, where it circulates through the wet load.
The air then passes through the lint filter, air duct, and exhaust fan, where it is vented to the outdoors.

15. IGNITION CONTROL FLASHES
(Figure 1)
NOTE: This control will lock-out the igniter after four failed attempts at ignition. The control can be reset by
opening loading door, waiting 1 minute, then closing loading door. If door is closed before waiting 1 minute, the
control will re-enter lockout. The red light will flash a “Flash Code” when the control is in the lock-out mode. The
light will flash on for 1/4 second then off for 1/4 second for each number. The pause between flash codes is 2
seconds. These flashes are caused by the control’s diagnostic test and can be interpreted by reading the following:

To reduce the risk of electric shock, fire, explosion, serious injury or death:
• Disconnect electric power to the dryer(s) before servicing.
• Close gas shut-off valve to gas dryer(s) before servicing.
• Never start the dryer(s) with any guards/panels removed.
• Whenever ground wires are removed during servicing, these ground wires must be
reconnected to ensure that the dryer is properly grounded.

is clipped to motor mounting bracket and is routed
along dryer base (between motor mounting bracket
and right side of cabinet). See Figure 17. Tab on rear

NOTE: When repairing or replacing the idler arm,
it is important to make sure the idler arm moves
freely. To ensure that the idler arm can move freely,
proceed as follows:
(1.) Unhook idler spring.
(2.) Lift idler arm approximately 3 inches and
release. If idler arm does not fall back to
the base of the motor mount, then idler arm
bolt is too tight.
(3.) Loosen idler arm bolt 1/4 turn.
(4.) Add grease between idler arm and motor
mount.
l. Impeller and housing
(1.) Remove screws holding cover to housing.
See Figure 19.
(2.) Hold motor pulley securely and unthread
impeller from motor shaft (right hand
thread). Use a 7/8 inch, 6 point socket to
aid in the removal of the impeller.

– SILICON NITRATE IGNITION
(Figure 39)
a. Components
The burner has four basic components: a glow
bar igniter, burner tube, flame sensor, and a
two-stage gas valve consisting of a main valve
and a redundant coil valve.
b. Pre-ignition Circuits
When the dryer thermostat calls for heat,
circuits are completed through the main and
redundant coil, flame sensor, and igniter.
c. Burner Circuit
In approximately 30 seconds, the igniter attains
ignition temperature and ignition is made. The
flame sensor circuit is completed through the
burner flame to the ignition control board.
d. Ignition Failure
If ignition failure occurs, the ignition control
will reset to its pre-ignition state within
approximately 45 seconds. After four failed
attempts at ignition, the ignition control will
lock-out the igniter. Refer to Paragraph 15 for
ignition control flashes.

f. Set test meter to read AC voltage and apply
meter probes into terminals on the dryer
harness plug that would correspond to
terminals 1 and 2 on the coil. See Figure 39.
Meter should register line voltage in all Fabric
