It might have more than 1 thermal sensor, if you can find a manuel and check. Also if you have a leak on your gas connection(flex hose, ect.)

No dryer heat

If the coils are bad the unit will light with flame for 4 - 8 times then all of a sudden the ignitor will glow, kick off with no gas coming threw valve. it sounds like the high limit thermostat is short cycling the flame. This is the thermostat that sits on top of the burner chamber. remove 1 screw from the thermostat and blend it upwards away from the heat. Then plug unit back in and test to see if the flame stays on longer. Click here to see maytag dryer no heat posts. Contact me anytime here. Hope this helps..

Kenmore gas dryer #41793142300 electronic start doesnt heat up

if you first have heat and then like 10 to 20 minutes later no heat you could have bad gas coils,on most gas dryers there's a plastic cap you can pop off on the front panel so you can look in and see the ignitor,if at first the ignitor glows orange and the flame lights then after a few minutes the ignitor glows orange and the flame doesn't light you have bad gas coils,they are located on the top of the gas valve,easy to change.part number 5303931775 go here and look at part 71

Our dryer stopped heating up. We cleaned out all the vents and repleced the ignitor. Still no heat. Any suggestions?

If the ignitor is glowing then check the flame sensor for continuity if it is not glowing then check the thermal fuse. If the dryer heats up for a few minutes then doesnt after that replace the coils

Remove the exhaust vent from the rear and try a load of laundry.
If ir dries correctly,clean and or repair the connecting exhaust vent.
It may also be necessary to disassemble the dryer and clean internal ducts.

Dryer flame on magtag wont stay lit. Pilot flares up but no flame

Thermocouple is probably bad. The pilot burns and heats a sensor which tells the CPU that the Flame can start, and the thermocouple heating up changes voltage with increase temperature and tells the CPU that the Flame is burning OK. If it is defective, there is no voltage change and the CPU assumes that the Flame didn't start for some reason, (Gas only!) and turns if off for safety. Over and over xx times.

probably your exhaust vent is clogged, make sure every inch of it is clean. as a safety measure, if it is clogged, your dryer will not produce heat, because it will have nowhere to go
