Dryer gets really hot after starting.So hot it will burn you.This is a gas dryer.Not a good mix,Heat and gas.The vent is new,The lint trap is clean.This is a new dryer.Is there a common cause for this...


Has it always been hot like that? If so it may need to have the gas valves converted. Most dryers ship with natural gas orifices, which DO NOT work with LP/Propane.

The good news is most dryers ship with all the necessaru orifices to convert between the two gasses, and your owner's manual should have instructions for performing the procedure, If not, post your model number and I'm sure I or someone else can look up the instructions for you.

Hope this helps.

Model (41793042201) Heat in dryer is shutting off (does not stay hot) and clothes are not getting dry.


If heater comes on and then goes off after a while, it is most likely a problem with the exhaust. If not enough air is moved, the element will over heat and go out on it limit, thus protecting it from burning out the element or burning clothes.
Check out the duct to see if it's clogged. I've used a shop vac to blow out ducts and it seem to work ok. Just be sure not to blow the flex duct off the boot.

I have a whirlpool dryer that is taking hours to dry clothes. I checked the exhaust hose for lint and clear it out of lint. It is still taking a long time to dry. What could it be? Please advise. Thank...


i looked up your dryer and i see the filter is on top and it's gas,first thing are the clothes hot when the dryer is done or are they warm?you could have bad gas coils,when the dryer heats up and the coils get hot they shut down,they usually will do this after the first 15 to 30 minutes of running the dryer and they won't let the gas in until they cool down,i need you to pop off the little cover on the bottom left side,start the dryer and look in the hole and you'll see the gas fire up, after around 20 minutes look in the hole and see if the gas is still lighting,you might have to look in there for a minute or two and if it doesn't light then you know you have bad gas coils,also unplug the dryer take off the vent line and remove the back panel,on the left side you'll see the duct that the lint filter slides into,take out the four screws but first remove the filter and take out the two phillips screws in front of the filter on top and then you can pull the duct out enough to get a vac in the back of it,you might have to loosen up the stuff stuck in the bottom of the duct and stick your hand in the middle of the duct and feel to see if there is anything stuck around the opening there,vac out anything you see there,if you have a shop vac you can blow out the duct to make sure it's clean.if the vent line is long i use a leaf blower to blow out the vent line,check outside to make sure the vent is clear,stick your hand in and see if any lint is built up around the vent there,if you have a lint brush use that,then pop the top up,use a screw driver,stick it in the front on the right and left sides around an inch from the side and pop up the top,there will be two 5/16 screws you have to remove and disconnect the door switch wires,pull up on each side and remove the front panel to vac out the inside of the dryer,use the shop vac to blow the lint from the back to the front so you don't have to remove the drum,blow out the gas parts and the motor and your done,if the gas coils are bad this is how you get to them,they are on top of the gas valve,remove the two phillips screws take off the cover,remove the wires,do one coil at a time so you don't get messed up they aren't the same,and then put it back together,sounds like alot but it's easy to do,you should clean out the dryer once a year so you don't have a fire and you'll have less problems with your dryer,good luck and if i can help you with anything else let me know

Our GE gas dryer is burning clothes that are fleece fabric or blankets. Any suggestions?


I recently solved this problem on my ELECTRIC dryer by taking apart the lint collection area. Some dryers allow you to do this by removing a couple screws surrounding the lint screen holder. Others require some dis-assembly of the top and front panel.
Once you have access behind or below the lint screen, use your hands or a strong vacuum (shop-vac) to clean out any collected lint that has fallen below the collection screen and settled in the exhaust duct. I pulled out about 100 cubic inches (~1.6 liters) of collected lint, cat hair, and debris that was obstructing air flow.
Obstructed airflow can cause metal parts near the electric heating element to overheat and scorch clothing and is a serious fire hazard. I expect similar problems can occur with gas dryers.

GE Gas dryer getting too hot


The gas burner valve is not the correct one for LP gas. You have to convert the valve as well as the orifices. The clicking is because it is over heating and cycling on and off o the high limit (safety thermostat)
