My gas dryer wont ignite. where do I start trouble shooting


Model number would help but I'll give some general info. Most Kenmore dryers are usually made by Whirlpool so I'll give info for that type dryer. The 1st thing to check on a no heat is if the glow bar ignitor is coming on. At the cycle start it should glow red hot or orange. If no glow the glowbar may be burned out and needs replaced. This is the most common problem in a gas dryer. If you see the orange glow for about 15 seconds and it goes out ---that is normal. That usually means you may have a bad magnetic coil on the top of the gas valve. There are actually 2 coils on the valve and if either one goes bad the valve will not open and let gas through to ignite. They need tested with a multimeter. Thats the 2 most common problems with gas dryers.

Dryer is about 5 years old. Has begun to squeak loudly when clothes begin to spin


Are you comfortable taking the dyer apart? There are just a few simple screws to remove. It sounds like a bad blower wheel. If you follow the link you should be able to trouble shoot the issue.

The flame from my gas/fire that heats the dryer is shooting up too high and hitting the sensor, and then the sensor registers that it's too hot and shuts the heat off completely, therefore my clothes are...


it probably has ruined the sensor eye or dirtied it so it cannot let the gas valve open,by chance,has or was this unit on L.P. gas or Natural gas at one time and has been changed over to the other gas,as this will,due to the wrong orfice in the gas flow create an over size flame

My element turns on and the gas will light ocasionally.


If the igniter is glowing and even sometimes lights the burner, it's not the igniter that's bad. I've created a checklist that most homeowner's can use to trouble shoot dryer lighting problems. Click on my username, scroll down my profile to my tips and tricks for trouble shooting gas dryers.
Hopefully, one of these tips will solve your problem. Good luck.

GE Dryer Model #DWSR483EB2WW Dryer tumbles,


Does it get hot when you start the dryer, and never gets hot again when its running? The solenoid wire might be opening due to heat, the solenoid is responsible for opening the gas valve, and booster valve. The wire is located in a round plastic sleeve with two electrical contacts sticking out.

Have a GE M# DDG9280GELWH gas dryer. Works fine but not firing-up to dry the clothes. Gas feed is fine. Is there an ignitor or other part causing the problem? How to trouble shoot? Gary


Make sure the lint filter, vent duct and vent outlet are not clogged blocking air flow. Then check the ignitor underneath the drum. (You have to open the panel to see it) It should glow shortly after the dryer starts, then the flame starts and the ignitor shuts off. If the ignitor does not glow then it or the thermostat is bad. If the ignitor is glowing but the gas does not light then the flame sensor may have to be replaced. If the gas ignites but does not stay on either the flame sensor or the coils are at fault.
