I have a whirlpool lgr5634a gas dryer, it heats up but does not seem to heat as high as it should.


possible of lint build up in the discharge vent vaccum/clean out first. next ensure the filter trap is clean and the below area is in the discharge area is cleaned out. also the sensor on the inside of the drum could be coated with sooftner causing the sensor that automaticly tells the dryer when top stop/ amount of heat to produce could be coated use isopropel alchol to clean and check after 10 minutes if the dyer is functioning properly at this time.

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 will come on and heat for a few minutes and then go out


you either have bad gas coils if it heats for the first 15 to 30 minutes and then the flame doesn't lite any more or you need to clean out the dryer because there is a blocked vent line or duct stopping the air from moving through the dryer and then to the outside.you need to clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,vac out the inside of dryer where the motor is and if the vent line is long i use a leaf blower to blow out the vent line.unplug the dryer when ever you're working on it

HI, Check the following to address this issue further.


1. Venting
Make sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct, is not clogged.

Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance repairman perform this task. The blower housing should be disassembled, and cleaned in this case.

2. Thermostat(Secondary Cause)- Highly unlikely in your case, but possible
There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance. Replace the defective thermostat. These thermostats are located in the dryer vent duct and sometimes mounted on the blower assembly as well.

Amana LGA30AW Gas Dryer won't produce heat


The heating element have got old and brittle over time and finally gave up the ghost. But it is not always the element. It could be one of the safety Hi-limits have blown. All parts of the dryer will have continuity if its working properly. Test for continuity by using a meter set on Ohms,or use a poor man's meter. You can make your own poor man's meter by using an ordinary flashlight . Break the circuit in the flashlight and add a couple of wires to it so that you can make the light come on in the flashlight, that's right hot wire that flashlight. When the bulb lights up you have a circuit! You now have a poor man's meter. The next step is to check each little gizmo on the dryer that the wires attach to. All the limits attached to the side of the heat element, the door switch (when door is closed) etc.should have continuity (closed circuit)(the light should come on in the poor man's meter) If you come across an thing near the blower housing with 2 wires attached to it, that is a thermal limit, a safety or a control thermostat (So as not to get a false circuit you need to remove one of the wires to each thing you check) Look for lint buildup or blocked vent going out the house. If everything is good and you have paid the electric bill, then the timer could be bad.

I have whirlpool dryer that the heat seems to kick on and off it is gas dryer


If heats for a few minutes then cuts off (heat) , then the 2 coils on the burner valve are probably bad . OR check the vent hose to the outside for good air flow . Sometimes , a dryer is pushed too far back , and it kinks the vent hose . If coils are bad , when dryer cools down , then restarting , cool coils will heat again for a few minutes , then stop heating till they cool off again .

I HAVE A MAYTAG ATLANTIS GAS DRYER STOPS HEATING ABOUT 5 MINUTES IN


the flame going out is normal. the heat cycles on and off as called for by the thermostat. If the heat doesn't come back on i would start by changing the gas coils.
