When you turn it on listen for a clicking sound. If you don't here that. The electric igniter needs replaced. And sometimes theres a circitboard that goes bad. But its gas, and there fore very dangeruse. FOR YOUR SAFETY IF YOUR NOT EXPERANCED WITH GAS APP. GET A PRO TO WORK ON IT.

Hi debra,when you start your gas dryer you should here two clicks, if so then your ignitor should begin to glow.if not two clicks then its going to be your thermol fuse.armed with that give me some feed back an will go from there.God bless ,tom

    dear debra this info means you are only hearing one click when it starts.if your dryer has a back panel,yes its in there .its small ,white has two wires to it and is shaped like a missile,or fliyng sauscer,you can connect those two wires and isolate with black tape,then try start, if go replace fuse,but you need to inspect all venting and dryer air passages for blockages because they can cause a fuse to blow to protect the consumer.God bless ,tom

Cell phone gets hot


Probably due to lots of apps running in current and background sessions. Turn some of the unneeded apps off, and understand that as you use your phone the battery will become warm as it provides the current to the phone.

It takes at least 2 cycles to dry clothes. It is Roper heavy duty high capacity electric dryer. Thank you for any help you can give me. janebellard@yahoo.com


Check for air restrictions which cause the heat control to shut down faster than normal.
When the moisture cannot be removed fast enough the heat builds up and has nowhere to go so the heat control stays off longer and the clothes just tumble on.

My dryer is a ultimate care heavy duty super capacity runs fine but it wont heat up so it don't dry. Does it have a pilot or something i need to replace?


Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.



if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....



If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.



check out this electric no heat tip...

I have model REX3514PQ0 that I purchased from Lowe's in 2005. It is a Heavy Duty, Extra Large Capacity, 3 Cycle dryer. The dryer will turn on and will blow but only cold air. A friend suggested I check...


There are three switches :: high heat thermostat, low heat thermostat, and thermal limit switch.

Could the the thermal limit switch is opened because the dryer overheated -- these cannot be reset -- need replacing.

Could also be a faulty heating element. To test these components you'll need an ohmmeter (multi-meter) and will need to remove the back of the dryer.

More info, let me know.

Whirlpool model number LGV7646ANO gas dyer will not heat up


Can you hear a click like always? If not then it has to be either the fuse, ignitor,or sensor. If you hear it clicking then the operator coils are dead. HERE is a link that shows pictures of these parts and locations.
