Admiral Dryer Model #AGD4475TQ No Heat


This is very rare on a gas dryer but I have seen it. If you have already replaced all that other stuff I would say it has to be inside the timer. On one I worked on once I could remove that orange wire and the dryer would function ok so I ordered a new timer, they sent me a bad timer. Same problem. I finally got a working timer after going through a bunch of mess. That fixed it. So if all the other components are working it very well could be the timer.

Whirlpool model LGR4634JQ0 Began not heating today. I've checked the timer and have run thru the different cycles. What would you recommend checking to find exact failure of heating.


pop off the cover on the bottom left side of the front panel,look inside with the dryer running,does the ignitor glow?if not unplug it,pull out the filter on top,remove the two phillips screws in front of the filter on top panel,get a screw driver and pop up the top panel,on the sides remove the two 5/16 inch screws,unplug the door switch and lift the front panel off.unplug the ignitor and check it with your meter,if it's good check the sensor to the left of it.if it does glow it will be bad gas coils or the gas valve but most of the time it's the coils,also you can tell if the coils are bad is they will work normally until they heat up and then the fail,so you'll have heat for the first 15 to 30 minutes and then nothing.if all checks good you could have a bad timer or motor but usually it's not that.while you have it apart you should clean it out.with a shop vac vac up all the lint in the cabinet,stick the vac on blow and blow all the lint off the motor and blow off all the gas parts,then go in the back,remove the vent line and the back panel,if the vent line is long blow it out with a leaf blower and go outside and make sure the outside duct is clear.then remove the duct that the lint filter slides into and clean that out.if you do this once a year your dryer will last a long time,your clothes will dry on time and you don't have to worry about a dryer fire.if you need any more help let me know,if you let me know what part you found that was bad i can look it up for you and give you the part number and a price.good luck

My gas dryer runs forever without making any heat. The timer doesnt advance at all. The air flows great just no heat. On a VERY rare ocassion there is a little heat but hardly ever.


Hi there,

Well if your dryer tumbles, but there is no heat then you may please check out the following -
1. First of all you can check out for proper air flow - Check the vent for proper air flow by placing your hand over the exterior vent while the dryer is running. You should feel a strong flow of air. If not then check the lint trap. It is located either on top of the dryer or possibly just inside the door. Remove any lint that has built up in the lint trap. Cleaning the lint trap should be done regularly, even as often as after every load. Do not operate the dryer without a lint trap in place.
2. Secondly you can check out the Ignitor - 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. Post comments for further help or information.....
Good Luck!!

Dryer wont get warm... intermittently works... sometimes canhear the ignitor spark, sometimes not. Completely cleaned all of the lint in the machine, exhaust line, etc... and got alot of lint. Thought it...


Hi,
If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....

If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

check out this electric no heat tip...

Gas Dryer only runs burner once after starting, why


Lets see, you have power to the gas assembly so the fuse is good and the ignitor will fire up. But she won't fire off again. The flame sensor is working because the ignitor is coming on and off. That means the control thermostat is working so everything is working. So what's the problem. Simple.933a1bb.jpg The solenoid coils heat up and quit on these machines with a little age. Very difficult to diagnose unless you know the trick.

I have a Kenmore gas dryer that the timer will not move and the ignitor will not glow. Both happened at the same time. What might this be


if you have the timer on auto it will not advance without heat,when the heat shuts off the timer moves,you could have popped the thermal fuse located on the blower wheel housing,if the lint filter is on top you have to take the vent line off and remove the back panel to get at it,if the filter is inside then the thermal fuse is in front to the right of the lint filter,this is mostly caused by a blocked dryer that needs a clean out,take off the duct that the lint filter slides down into and clean it out,vac out the inside of dryer where the motor is,and clean out the vent line,if it's a long run blow it out wiyh a leaf blower,you should do this once a year so the dryer runs correctly and clothes will dry faster,if it's not the fuse check the ignitor the sensor and the gas coils,when the dryer cools down and you turn it on and if there is heat for like the first 10 or 15 minutes then no heat it's the gas coils that are bad,hope this helps you

Dryer start up fine then the gas turns off as ignitor continues


Hi Jim. Perhaps this will help you.

The burner assembly consists of the gas valve, the igniter and sensor, and the thermostats. The gas supplied to the appliance is turned on and off by the gas valve, as follows:


  • First--when you close the dryer door, set the timer, and press or turn the Start button--the motor starts. When it reaches full speed (in about a second) a switch on the motor turns on, which allows the electricity to flow through a simple thermostat to one side of the gas valve.

  • The gas valve then sends power to the igniter, which glows bright orange.

  • As heat and light from the igniter warm up a sensor that's right next to the igniter, the sensor circuit opens, then supplies power to the other side of the gas valve. This completes the circuit and opens the valve.

  • Once the valve opens, the gas rushes out and the igniter ignites it. As the gas burns, it keeps the sensor warm, which keeps the gas flowing.

  • When the dryer reaches the pre-set drying temperature, a simple thermostat turns off the flow of electricity to the gas valve and therefore turns off the gas.

  • When the temperature in the dryer falls about 20 to 30 degrees, the thermostat again allows the electricity to flow through to the gas valve, and the cycle starts over.

If you selected the Automatic setting, the cycle continues until the clothes are dry, then the timer advances and turns the dryer off.

If you selected a timed setting, the cycle continues until the time has expired, then the timer turns off the dryer

WHIRLPOOL GAS DRYER MODEL LGQ9030PQ1 DRYER RUNS BUT NO HEAT


I would be suspect of the timer. Same thing happened to mine.

Rotate the timer manually a few degrees and see if the dryer operates properly. If so, replace the timer, a simple thing to do. Cost is about $75.00 and available from SearsPartsDirect.

Reply your findings and I will help you more.
