Number 59 is the fuse. if it is blown due to air restriction or vent blockage the dryer will run but no power will be transferred to the gas assembly. If you are indeed getting power to the gas assembly you want to first check the flame sensor for continuity. If it is open the ignitor won't glow. If the sensor is good check the ignitor itself is what I would do next. The following videos show how a gas dryer works and How to get into the type dryer you ahave which is a 4 wheel drive type,

MAytag 2300 aww does not heat


If this is a gas dryer it may be the ignitor has failed. There should be a panel you can remove to inspect the burner compartment. Turn on the dryer and look for an orange glow if you don't see any glow the ignitor is probably faulty and should be replaced. If it is an electric dryer it may be a bad heating element. Hope this helps.

Dbsr463eg7ww no heat


First check to see that the exhaust venting line is clear (not full of lint) as well as the path in the dryer to the line. This is the most common cause of no heat.
Second set the knob to heat turn on dryer with the lights off and the door open but the "open door" switch so that it still rotates with the door open. Look at the back of the rotating drum for a orange/red glow behind the drum (the heater coils). If there is no glow the heater coils are probably broken.
As the dryers age, the amount of thermal cycles the heater elements go through until the point when the coil wire breaks. There usually two heater coils behind the rotating drum (one hotter than the other and when combined the hottest heat temperature setting. You will need to pop open the top where you see the belt that turns the drum. The belt is removed from the spring loaded tensioner pulley at the base of the dryer. Then you can lift the drum out to get to the heater coils. Since no heat, both should be broken and will require replacement.

No high heat in dryer


This type of dryer has 2 rows of elements. If one is out then you will not have high heat.


Basically to get into ge dryers your start by popping the top then removing the front. Then the drum comes out.

I a have a kenmore 417 dryer that is not heating I followed the steps


Check to see if the electrical coils are glowing or not...... they are located right behind the cloths drum. (sounds as though they are NOT heating up) In order to see these coils...... first, remove all the cloths from the drum. second, while the dryers door is open 7 the drum is empty look all the way to the rear or the metal drum, it has a flat back in which you will notice there are quite a few holes. During the next step you will want to watch these holes as we check to see if the heating coils are lighting up (they will glow like the heating element in your oven... or burners on your stove top as they get hot.... ORANGE IN COLOR IS WHAT YOU WANT TO SEE) Now.... with the dryer drum empty & the door OPEN..... you will find a small pushbutton located somewhere around the outide of the drum opening thats activated (pushed in when you cose the door), depress this little button and hold it IN (this is tricking the dryer into thinking the door is closed... but its not, your holding the button NOT the door.... luckly the dryer isn't smart enough to know this) You must continue to hold the button in till the test is over.... if you let go it will IMMEDIATELLY STOP the dryer! Now, push the start button located on the console like you normally would do so during normal operation (it is recommended that the temperature be set to the HIGHEST SETTING during this test). As the dryer starts and the drum turns.... watch those holes located in the back of the drum! It takes a minute for the coils to get hot enough to glow so give it a few minutes before giving up..... after 3 minutes an ORANGE GLOW should appear through those little holes. The glow you see is the coils getting hot like the element in your oven. If after 3 minutes..... NO ORANGE GLOW can be seen through any of these holes..... the heating element needs to be replaced (this is a common problem & is usually inexpensive to replace..... $15 - $20) Replacement heating elements are available at most appliance stores..... remember to write down the manufacturers name, the dryers model number, and serial # prior to going to the store for a replacement. You MUST provide this information to the dealer for proper replacement parts! Once you've got the new heating element (it will look similar to a really long spring) you'll be Up & Running in No time!!!!) Just follow the instructions which are usually provided by the manfacturer to properly replace the broken element! Hope this helps...... GOOD LUCK!!!!!

Drum turns but no Heat problem!!


Brian, if the glow ignitor comes on for a minute clicks and goes off then you need valve coils. if no glow at all could be ignitor or thermal fuse.

Gas dryer 4 yrs young and won't heat. Drum turns.


First thing to check is 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.

Gas dryer works, but does not heat


Hello there:
here is a discriptive way of trouble shooting the dryer and it lists the common components that will normally fail if the element has not failed first
Gas Dryer Diagnosticsgasdryerguts.gifThis picture shows the main parts of a gas dryer's burner systemthat can fail. Understanding each component and it's failure mode canreally help diagnose a problem with a gas dryer.
Ignitor failure: The drum turns but the igniter doesn't glow, thereis no clacking sound as the gas valves open and there is no flameignition sound.
Radiant Sensor failure: The drum turns but the igniter doesn't glow,there is no clacking sound as the gas valves open and there is no flameignition sound.
Gas Valve Solenoid failure: The drum turns and the igniter glows andgets turned off but there is no clacking sound as the gas valves openand there is no flame ignition sound.
And another component failure to be aware of, but that's not shown here, is the operating thermostat:
Operating Thermostat failure: The drum turns but the igniter doesn'tglow, the gas valves don't open (there is no clacking sound) and thereis no flame ignition sound.
And here's a picture of other components to ohm out if you're getting no heating at all:
