Kenmore 500 dryer

If you mean that it is not heating and stays cool, most likely the pilot sensing thermocouple needs replacing (if you have a gas drier with a pilot light) or the electronic ignition contacts need replacing (if you have a gas drier with electronic ignition). Not sure about an electric drier, but probably the heating element needs replacing, or the thermocouple sensor (most likely). None of these are very expensive.

Drier has no heat. Seems to run fine, otherwise. might I nee d to re-light the pilot through the small hole in the front of it?


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...

Have kenmore dryer the pilot is out

it probably has a glow plug not a pilot, tun on the drier and watch for 15 seconds to see if a glow is visible, Not knowing the year or type of drier makes this hard to reply to, but if you do see no glow,, check the main fuse (thermo) at the rear of the unit and replace

Gas dryer not heating up

it probably has a igniter, not a pilot light that lil hole is a check sight hole, close the door and set the drier to start , within a few seconds you should see a glow plug light up, if not,, check the main fuse in the back of the machine,, this is normally caused by a lack of flow for the drier vent and over heating

Gas drier

If the ignitor glows, and then goes out without lighting the gas, replace the gas valve coils. I'll need more information about your dryer to tell you how to do this. (model number.)
