Clothes have to be dried several times before getting dry


The first thing to do is to remove the ryers exhaust venting tubes and clean them out thoroughly. Any lint build up will cause the moister sensor to keep the heat in check. It is a saftey device to prevent home fires from clothes dryers. Just on small clog will do this. If cleaned and still no heat listen for a clicking noise upon starting. If no click is heard the Spark ignitor is at fault. If it is clicking the moister sensor is at fault

dryer is not heating up to dry clothes


The spark ignitor maybe at fault. Listen for the clicking noise upon starting it up the first 30 seconds it runs. If not heard it is in need of a replacement

it just stopped heating


If you have a gas dryer the burner is ignited by a eletroniic ignitor. It will make a ckicking noise upon starting it when set in the heat mode. You should hear the click or clicking noise it makes within 30 seconds after starting the dryer. If no click is heard, replace the spark ignitor
