Does the dryer light and then go out? Does it even try to ignite?

SOURCE: gas dryer wont get hot

The first thing to check is the thermal fuse. It is located in the back of the dryer, and you need to remove the back panel to get to it, which involves taking out about a dozen screws. To check it, unplug the dryer, pull the wires off the thermal fuse, connect them to each other with an alligator clip lead, plug the dryer in and see if the dryer gets hot.

SOURCE: dryer does not glow or lite up but it runs

I just diagnosed the same problem with my estate model by wirlpool. It is most likely the thermal fuse located in the back (behind the panel) It is a $12.00 part. My neighbor fixed his father's unit with same issue 2 weeks ago.

SOURCE: Kenmore Series 70 Gas Dryer not getting hot enough

The first thought I have is about the gas supply. If you had natural gas at the old house and now have propane or visa versa you need to change the orifices in the dryer as gas flow is different. Also, if the gas line some how got a kink in it when the dryer was being installed that too would restrict the flow of gas.

My Frigidaire gas dryer isn't hot. Otherwise it runs fine.


it could be either your ignitor(glow coil) flame sensor control, or a defective thermal switch telling dryer its at temp and shutting off gas supply before it even fires initially

Whirlpool mod # WGD5300SQ0 gas dryer gets hot but does not stay hot Is it a thermostat or radiant sensor or something else


by all means when dealing with natural gas consult only trained professionals....as natural gas does not have an odor..the odor that you smell is an actually additive that has been place for just this reason.

My dryer is ot blowing hot air


Remove the heater vent, then turn dryer on. Does this fix problem? If so then you have a block in your vent hose.
