Check the breaker first, then check the connections in the back of the dryer, then check the element itself. It may be burned in two. The timer may be coincidentally bad as well.

I have an Amana Designer Series Gas Dryer. It worked fine for more than 10 years. Suddenly, yesterday it still ran, but there was no heat. I opened the bottom panel while it was running, and...


Motor runs, but main burner will not ignite

2.defective timer or timer circuit---check timer wiring--replace timer motor or switch as needed
3.defective centrifugal switch in motor---clean switch or replace as needed
4.gas supply valve closed----open gas valve
5.inoperative solenoid coil---test coil for open circuit & the voltage to it

Pilot burner goes out

WED5321SQ0 dryer doesn't heat or shut off once it's running


well if ran all night you maybe be running a even heat or auto dry cycle. i would first try on a timed dry see if heat then. if does heat (which probably wont) you will be need to replace either the sensor or board that controls the auto dry. or a very small chance that the timers bad. most likely you have a bad heating element. if the machine doesnt heat on the timed dry, then you need to check continuity on the heat fuse(located on heat element housing). if good then check continuity on heat element. i would say you have a bad element or heat fuse.

Wont start after running all night without shutting off


Bad timer, When the machine just runs and runs and runs, or runs for a very short time and shows that it ran the whole cycle but the clothes are still wet then the timer has gone bad and needs to be replaced. IF you go to repairclinic.com. You can order the timer from there or your local appliance repair company. They are around 40 dollars and you can replace the part fairly easy

MAYTAG PYE3200AYW, WILL NOT RUN, PRIOR TIMER PROBLEM


When it ran all night was it heating then? Are any of the breakers tripped? Are the connections secure in the back? But I believe if the heat was working when it was running, the timer may be the problem and they are simple to replace and not that expensive. If this unit is older than 15 years, then it may be time for a new one. The parts and time wasted may be better spent on a new one.

Whirlpool electric dryer ran all night and won't heat


Yes it will heat. The two are normally not dependent on the other. The element could be bad. Check the breaker first, then the connections in the back, then the element. The timer could be bad itself allowing it to run all night. This could be a blessing in disguise as the clothes would have been damanged possibly from all the excess heat.
