Check your exhaust vent first to make sure it isn't clogged. Remove the vent at the dryer and run it for a moment to see if the air out is warm. If it's not, you've got to pull off the access panel to access the back of the unit. There should be a thermal fuse/cutout right near the burner tube. Ohm it out, replace if open. Next, you will have to try to run it without the back on to see if the ignitor is glowing hot. Also, check the gas valve for voltage when the unit is running (carefully) and see if the valve is getting voltage. If it is, replace it.

I have a whirlpool elect. dryer it runs but it blows cold air what could be the reason why


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

When the dryer blows cold air then the issue is with the Thermal fuse which is located on the blower wheel housing inside the rear panel that is bad and needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Dryer blows only cold air.


If it's an electric dryer, then unplug the machine and check for a blown thermal fuse or a faulty heating element. The thermal fuse is about an inch long and is located inside the rear of the dryer, usually attached to or near the exhaust duct. The thermal fuse and heating element can be tested for continuity using a multimeter or ohmmeter. A lack of continuity will indicate a bad component. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Dryer blowing cold air whirlpool awz3513


Check for a blown thermal fuse or a faulty heating element. Both components can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty component. The thermal fuse is about an inch long and is located just inside the rear of the dryer and is usually attached to or near the exhaust duct. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Gas dryer wont heat up, blows only cold air.what would cause this


Could be a bad hi limit thermostat. Could be a bad glowbar ignitor. Check the glowbar ignitor at the gas valve, is it glowing bright orange/red? If not. Replace the ignitor.

Gas Dryer does not continue to heat.


Check the Following to address this issue--



1. Gas valve coils
Igniter glows, then shuts off without igniting gas - the problem is probably with defective coils (black, located on top of the gas valve). It is recommended to replace all coils (usually two or three) if found defective.

Note: Sometimes the whole gas valve may be defective, thus not letting the gas out. However, this problem is not common.

2. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.

3. Igniter
Igniter may burn out or break. Replace the igniter if found defective.

Note: Igniters are very fragile and break easily. It is recommended to handle the igniter only touching the ceramic part of it (usually white in color).

4. Flame sensor (or radiant heat sensor)
Replace the sensor (located near the igniter) if found defective.

ELCTRIC DRYER NO HEAT JUST COLD AIR


There is a thermal fuse its location depends on the dryer if the filter is on the top then you have to take off the back panel and check the white fuse. If the filter is inside the dryer you have to take off the bottom panel. a flathead screw driver for the 2 clips the check the white fuse behind the lint trap (where the filter goes).
