Dryer spins but does not heat

When I try to dry a load of clothes on high heat, the dryer does not heat but does spin. I have made sure the breakers are fully on for the outlet and there has been no change to the gas valve and it is on.

Re: Dryer spins but does not heat

It sounds like to have a bad igniter. In order for your dryer's gas valve to open,the igniter has to be functioning properly. This is a built in safety feature to prevent gas from flowing without ignition. The igniter is located inside the machine usually under the drum near the gas valve. If you can access the inside look for a glow after you push the start button. If there's no glow, your igniter is bad. I hope this helps.

Broken washer/dryer

This sounds like a motor control board is faulty. Please load a couple of towels in the machine run it. Watch the machine as it goes through its' cycles.

1. Do the towels tumble when the machine is washing ?
2. When it begins to spin, does it spin one way at a fast pace or does it spin one way and then the other ?

Answering these two questions will help in troubleshooting your problem.
