Intermittant heating.It will begin to glow....sometimes the flames shoot out for a short time....but then go out. Then, it will continue to glow red without flames igniting,then goes dim....couple minutes...


This is usually caused by faulty coils on the heat valve. they can be purchased seperate from the gas valve and are relatively easy to install..

Dryer starts (heat on) after 5-8 minutes heating cycle stops and only cool air run through.


your heating element need to be cleaned.......

1. pull the unit out from the wall
2. Remove the screws holding on the larger rear panel.
3. Using a vacume cleaner extension, remove as much debris as possible from all accessible components.
4. Clean out the dryer vent and the connection to the wall, making sure that air can pass easily.

THAT SHOULD DO YA. If the heat continues to cut off, you are dealing with a faulty heating element in which case you will be best off to purchase a new dryer. (replacing a heating element is typically the beginning of a failing unit)

GOOD LUCK AND PLS RATE THIS POST!!!

I have model # crgr7900A31 gas dryer front end loading. The dryer will not shut off. It continues to run.


Hi, If your dryer seems to run forever, it could be because of a clogged vent or internal ductwork. Your dryer may have an automatic cycle that turns off the dryer when the clothes are dry. It does this with a special thermostat or moisture-sensing system.
Normally, this is what happens during an automatic cycle: The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a pre-set temperature--say 135 degrees. When the dryer reaches the pre-set temperature, the thermostat tells the timer to begin advancing. (If there's a moisture sensor, the timer advances only if the moisture content of the clothing is low enough.) The timer advances until the interior cools, then the thermostat tells the timer to stop advancing, and tells the dryer to start heating again. This cycle continues until the clothes are dry. But if the vent is clogged, the dryer may never reach the proper operating temperature, so it doesn't send the signal to the timer and the dryer continues to run indefinitely, even if the clothes are completely dry. To fix the problem, clean the vent and/or internal ductwork.

Kenmore HE4T Gas Dryer not heating


It can be tested using a mulitmeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. If it has no continuity, then it is defective. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Dryer not heating


  • There are two house circuits/fuses in an electric dryer's circuit.
    If one of them is tripped/blown, the drum may turn, but the heater will not operate. Reset the circuit breaker or replace the house fuse.
  • Outlet wired incorrectly.
    Have a qualified electrician verify that the supply voltage is correct.
  • Gas supply valve to a gas dryer is not open.
    Open the gas supply valve. See Installation Instructions for details.
  • LP gas supply tank is empty or there has been a utility interruption of natural gas.
    Refill or replace the LP tank. Call your natural gas utility company.
  • Dryer does not have enough air supply to support the gas burner.
    The dryer needs space around it for proper ventilation. Do not stack or place laundry or throw rugs against the front or back of the dryer. See Installation Instructions for details about installing a dryer in a closet or alcove.
  • Incorrect cycle or temperature has been selected.
    If the Air Fluff cycle or temperature is selected, the dryer will tumble without heat. Each cycle ends with a Cool Down period during which the load tumbles without heat. Check the location of the indicator on the Cycle Selector knob.
