SOURCE: maytag gas dryer, no heat, ignitor wont glow

The machine will check all safety features first. check the overlimit by the burner. It may have a reset. If not, turn power off and check continuity (ohms). Good luck.

SOURCE: on my 4 year old Kenmore elite dryer the ignitor glows and

HI, Check your 4" vent to the outside and make sure it is clean and that it has no kinks.
Any restriction to the outside will cause the dryer to short cycle. All thermostats must have continuity. With the dryer running, remove the lint screen and check to see if there is good air flow by putting your hand in where the filter goes (it is safe). You should feel air rushing past your hand if the vent is clear.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

KENMORE DRYER NOISY WHEN IGNITING NO HEAT


if the ignitor is glowing you're getting power so it's not a thermal fuse problem and you say you changed the coils.us usually the buzzing sound most likely is the gas valve,check the sensor on the left outer side of the gas tube, pull at least one of the wires off with the dryer unplugged and check the sensor with a meter for continuity,if the sensor is good put it back together,start it and tap on the gas valve,sometimes tapping it frees up the valve and it will ignite,also the ignitor even though it glows could be bad,it works on amps,i think and you can google and check but i think it's 3.2 amps but it sounds like you,re having issues with the gas valve if the sensor is good.hope this helps

My Kenmore series 90 Gas dryer doesn't heat up.


This dryer is what I like to call a 4 wheel drive model. Because it has wheels on the front as well as the back. To access the gas assembly you pop open the bottom panel. Strat the dryer and observe the gas assembly. You should hear a click and then the ignitor should glow. Next the flame sensor should trip and cause the ignitor to shut down. The gas will now be allowed to come out and fire off a blast.I have 2 home videos. on shows the operation and replacement of the coils. The other is of an electric model but shows how to put the dryer together.

Bake does not work


most likely you have a bad ignitor,this is the first thing that goes,if it glows and doesn't ignite the flame within 40 seconds after it starts to glow the ignitor is still bad even though it glows orange.if it's a flat ignitor it takes 3.2 amps for the ignitor to open the gas valve and ignite the flame,if it's a round ignitor it takes 2.5 amps to fire it up.you don't have to shut the gas down,if it's a fairly new machine no electricity will go to the ignitor either if it's shut off but you can shut the breaker down if you want.the machines are not like the older machines where you lite it with a match,they are electronic ignition so check the ignitor first,if it doesn't glow at all you can check the ignitor for continuity with a meter.if you need any more help send the full model number off of the machine,open the bottom draw under the oven door,look on the frame,left or right side and you'll see a tag with the model number on it.good luck and happy new year.

The igniter glow bar gets bright and hot on the first burn in the drying cycle, however on subsequent urns it doesn't glow bright or long enough to ignite. What's up?


The ignitor is either going to be good or bad. If it fires off it is fine and if it is shutting down then the flame sensor is also working. That tells me your coils are weak and old.
themobilian_2628.jpgthemobilian_2629.jpgthemobilian_2630.jpgthemobilian_2631.jpg

Here is how it works and why I believe you need to get new coils: When the dryer is cool first thing in the morning the initial start up the fuse and control besidethemobilian_2632.jpg
it allow power to the gas assembly, the flame detector/sensor allows power to get to the ignitor and it begins to glow. 1800 degrees is what that baby puts out and at that point the flame sensor bi-metal bends and shuts down the ignitor. The holding coil and secondary coil will then have enough power partially because the ignitor is off and partially because the ignitor is now acting as a thermocouple. If for some reason the gas did not ignite then the ignitor would cool down and shut off the gas. themobilian_2633.jpg
When the temp inside the drum gets to 160f that control beside the fuse shuts off the gas assembly, IF it don't shut down the gas then that fuse melts and shuts down the power to the gas assembly but it doe not shut down the dryer. The fuse is good though because you are getting power to the gas assembly AND the gas assembly is shutting down at 160f. The dryer keeps a tumbling around till the temp in the drum drops to 105f at that time the dryer wants another blast of hot air, trouble is the coils have gotten hot now, the ignitor is doing its thang, the flame sensor is doing its thang, the control is doing its thang. The only thing that ain't happening now is the coils ain't allowing gas to come out. Replace the coils and party on! More here

Gas won't ignite, no heat. were to start troubleshooting.


If the motor is running you need to determine if the glow ignitor is coming on.

On the front of the dryer in the lower left corner is a small plastic square, pry this square piece off.

Start the dryer in a heat cycle and watch through the window.

- If the ignitor glows for a while then shuts off and no flame appears the problem is the gas valve coils.

- If the ignitor glows and does not stop glowing the problem is the radiant sensor

- If the ignitor does not glow and you hear a 'clunk' every few minutes from the area close to the small window you are looking into then the ignitor is bad.

- If there is no glow and no clunk the problem is most likely the thermal fuse or thermal cut off.

- the thermal cut off trips if you have a venting problem and there is inadequate air flow

Sorry this is so lengthy, but there is a lot that can cause the symptoms you described.

Let me know if you need more info....

if you have already replaced the ignitor and the new one is glowing white hot, not orange, and you have replaced the sensor, then the next logical part to replace would be the gas coils. hope this will help solve the problem.

Maytag dryer runs but doesn't heat up


1. Open the small access door in front of the dryer and start the heat cycle. The ignitor must glow a bright orange so that it is hot enough to light the gas. If there is no orange glow, then the ignior needs replacement.
2. If it glows then cuts off, then glows, again and cuts off, the thermocouple sensor wire is out of position. It needs to be very, very close to the ignitor. This thermocouple sends a temperature signal when it senses that the ignitor is hot enough to ignite the gas. Unplug the dryer. Re-position the thermocouple wire mount so that the thermocouple wire is almost touching the ignitor. You may also "bend" the wire. Plug power back on and heat.
3. If it still does not heat, then the automatic gas valve that is controlled by the thermocouple sending unit is broken. The automatic gas valve cannot be safely "fixed" and must be replaced.
Hope it's just the thermocouple wire.

Dryer doesnt blow hot air.


I find that quite often the ignitor is out of alignment or the glass window is covered with lint.
a gas dryer blows air through a burner assembly to heat the air. The burner assembly consists essentially of a gas valve, ignitor and a flame sensor. If any part of the burner assembly malfunctions, the result will be low or no heat and slow drying of the clothes.
There are two common styles of ignitors, glow ignitors and spark ignitors. The ignitor ignites the gas either by heating up and glowing, or by sparking. If the ignitor fails, the dryer will not heat.

The easiest way to check the ignitor is to observe it. Remove the small access panel in front, select a high temperature setting and start the dryer. Watch the burner assembly, shortly after starting the dryer the ignitor should begin to glow or spark. If you see it glow or spark, then the ignitor is working.

Sears kenmore gas dryer 417.92052101does not stay lit.


Watch the burner assembly, shortly after starting the dryer the ignitor should begin to glow. If it glows for several seconds (up to 15 seconds) and then goes out, then the problem is probably the solenoids (coils). If the ignitor glows and stays on, then the problem is usually the flame sensor.
