If your dryer is not heating assuming is a gas dryer. It could be due to
The electrical fuse igniter is not working or no gas is going in.
Need to remove the front bottom cover and check that the fuse is igniting when you turn on the dryer. You should hear a clicking noise just before the igniter turns red ( glowing) to receive the gas and create the flame to then produce the heat. If you are not able to see the fuse/igniter conduct this process, you might need to replace it.
You would not hear the click if the ignitor was bad. It won't click until the flame sensor get heated up by the ignitor. So that tells me the thermal fuse ain't melted. I would say them coils on the gas valve are the problem.
could be the igniter or thermal fuse if you hear the gas valve click open and there is no glow inspect the igniter for a hot spot or white spot where the brek occured,some dryer will spin but not heat up if the thermal fuse is blown
Hello Friend, If the igniter is glowing continally and not clicking off, then your therm-disc is definately bad. It's attached to the burner shroud right across from the igniter. It reads the heat off the igniter through a little rectangular hole in the shroud. Replace and problem should be solved.
If igniter is glowing and then cools down and then begins to glow again in a repeating manner then I would say that the thermo-disc is good and you need to replace the gas valve coils. coils are easy to change, they are located on top of gas valve, two screws hold them in place. An easy fix.
The most likely cause is a bad ignitor part number 279311. It has to glow to open the valve and ignite the gas. You should hear a loud click when you first start the dryer. That tells us there is voltage to the gas valve.
Marco, looks like you covered a venting problem and with the fact that you changed all the thermostats, leads me to believe that your primary and boosting coils are not functioning as they should. This are located on the gas valve. A sure way to tell is by observation. The ignitor will glow, you will hear a click and the flame should start. If it glows, clicks and does not start you can be assured it's probably your coils. Pretty inexpensive to repair. The part numbers are 5303307292 for the secondary coil and 5303307292 for your booster. Make sure to change both.
