Whirlpool, Kenmore, GE, and Maytag use the same valve as well as the same glow coil when lighting up the gas to heat the dryer.

The Whirlpool Gas Valve Solenoid Kit worked perfectly with my Maytag Atlantis MDG7600AWW. Although I was initially concerned whether there were subtle diffences in solenoid gas valves for different dryers, I discovered that they are all pretty much standard for most, if not all, gas dryers. If your dryer loses heat, and it's because the gas doesn't stay on, it's likely that one of the valves went bad. You can't go wrong with this kit and replace both of them at the same time on your own.

Dryer kept taking longer to dry clothes, the flame eventually did not come on at all. Found this product recommendation online and decided to give it a shot before calling a repair technician. Glad I did, once I installed these, the dryer worked good as new. Have done at least 20 loads since installing the parts and this did the trick. One note, in a troubleshooting chart, the company listed a set of resistance values that would indicate that the old coils might be bad. Testing the old coils with an ohmmeter while they were cold gave a result that indicated they were still good. When I tested them after running the dryer for a bit, the resistance values became suspect - therefore I bought the new ones. Highly recommended if your glow plug illuminates, but the flames do not kick on during a drying cycle (or if your gas flame tends to extinguish and dryer cycles seem to be getting longer).

I ordered these parts to fix my dryer issue and thought the price was too good to be true compared to the prices on other parts siets I checked. The appearance and weight of these coils seemed slightly different than the coils in my dryer. Upon replacing both coils the dryer still didn't work. I ohmed the new and old coils out and determined that only one of the old coils was broken, and only one of the new coils was good. Luckily I was able to put the old three terminal and new two terminal in and get it working. I'd be apprehensive to order these again though.

I had been experiencing sporadic drying of clothes in my gas dryer for a couple of weeks. Eventually it was taking several full dryer cycles to accomplish the task. After viewing checklists online for probable causes by percentage of failure, I ordered the set of valve coils for my gas Whirlpool dryer.
Total replacement time took 35 minutes but only because I had discovered a buildup of lint and dust my vacuum had missed while cleaning the exhaust vent and lint filter chute. To take the front of the dryer and opening the top lid, replacing the valves and reassembling, it really only took 10 minutes.
I would recommend looking on YouTube for videos on replacing the coils for your specific dryer to minimize difficulty. In addition, when taking apart the bracket that holds the coils, replace one coil at a time to minimize your confusion as they are slightly different from each other. Make sure that they both "seat" in the bracket lips properly before reinstalling the bracket top and screw.
Save yourself time and aggravation by always replacing both coils at the same time to avoid going through the repair steps twice---for $15 you get both coils and no additional headaches.
Dry On!

Symptoms: The dryer turns on heats for like 30 seconds and then stops heating.
Opened the peek hole in front of the dryer i see no flame.
so I read a bunch DIY websites that suggested buying Thermal Fuse etc. And these websites sell the parts too at 3 times as much. Basically these coils help open the gas valve for ignition. over the years it gets weak and should replace both the coils.
Great price

After testing my dryer I discover the coils needed to be replaced. I looked aroun locally for the product but the cost were out of sight. After looking on Amazon I wondered if I was buying a super cheap product that would cause problems. I ordered then replaced the coils and my dryer is running like new again. By the way, I am not a professional technician. This is the first time I did this and saved my self some money in the process.

This parts work perfectly. The price was near the lowest, but since I am a prime member I got it in 2 days! If you ignitor is cycling on and off but you don't have any flames, 98%+ that this is the part you need. Mine gas coils checked out on the ohm meter but they still were bad.

It wasn't clear in the ad, but you get both coils in the kit.

The original coil packs in my gas dryer would work for about 2 minutes then drop out. After some research, it appears this set is a generic replacement for a ton of other part numbers. The bag they came in had an FSP logo and part number, a very common brand for replacement parts. They are identical to the originals in connections and physical shape.

I got these and installed in about 10 minutes. This was about a year ago and they're working to this day.
