2.) At home, washer worked as expected but no heat from dryer.
3.) Called gas company to check hookup. Gas tech said dryer had wrong adapter for hookup (from flex gas line to dryer gas pipe).
4.) Purchased new adapter, still no heat.
5.) Replaced solenoid coils. Still no heat.
6.) Paid appliance repairman $60 to diagnose dryer issue.
7.) Repairman said no gas was getting to dryer and would need to replace gas burner assembly. Cost would be prohibitive.
8.) Sold dryer to repairman for $20.
As repairman was moving dryer to his van I asked for the adapter that my brother had purchased. Repairman looked at it and said the adapter was suitable for a gas grill, not a dryer. Said that probably was why there was no heat. Repairman would not return the dryer since it was sold.
Shouldn't his troubleshooting have determined that the adapter was the wrong type?
Note: Brother purchased another used dryer for $125 (with 90 day warrantee) that works.
