Tell your natural gas company that you smell gas around your gas dryer and you think there may be a leak. They will send somebody out, at no cost to you to check on the appliance (gas dryer). When that person gets there, they will re-light your appliance and if the gas dryer needs a new thermal coupler, they will show you where it's at and how to replace it.

The drier is not getting hot


If it's electric and you do not have the knowledge to be working with 220 vac power I would suggest you call a repair person to come and look at it. It can be a tripped breaker, check you breaker box and shut off the drier breaker and than turn it back on making sure both sides lock on. Other than that, you can have a bad heater element or a bad timer. The most common would be a bad heating element. The element is normally found either behind the drum or down below the drum area and can be accessed by removing the lower front panel. Gain access to the element or open the dryer door and start the dryer by holding down the door switch and push the start button. If it is behind the drum you should see it glowing by looking inside the drum as it's running. The same is true for the element that is underneath the drum...remove the panel and start the dryer, you should see a glow from the element box. If you do not see a glow, unplug the dryer and check the element for a burned connection or break in the element wire. If you have a gas dryer, check that the supply is on, check that the dryer is plugged in and if so equipped check that the pilot light is lit. If the dryer has electronic ignition, you should hear a clicking noise when you first start it up. No noise, no ignition! If the pilot light is out follow your instruction book and relight the pilot or call your gas company for help!

Hello all i have a beko DRVS 62W tumble dryer...it has recently stopped producing heat but still spins..how do i fix this please?


You are asking a subject which can be dangerous, since there is a gas chamber and gas involved. First check that no one has turned off the gas ballcock valve which allows gas to flow to the dryer. And that your main Home Heater or stove is working. Once you have established that, depending on model there should be an automatic ignition which lights the pilot. I'm not familiar with your model, but most dryers have a thermocouple which keeps the pilot lit. The auto reset should be near the pilot device. If you could look into Dryer by removing the access door, or sight glass (if any) you should be a pilot light or an activation of the light once the dryer request heat. As said I don't know your model, but look for a thermocouple, if you don't know what a thermocouple is, go to a Home Hardware or Appliance Repair Store and request a thermocouple. You are under no obligation to buy simple by becoming familiar. The problem with giving advice with gas appliances is that other items can cause the safety to be tripped. A crack in combustion chamber, a loose screw which changed the gas to air ration, the venting of NOX requirements. It will take some thought and knowledge, and physically seeing the devices, it could be just a wire which fell off the control valve. Ideally when it comes to gas you not only need the right tools, such as water & soap (which blows air bubbles the kids use) to check for leaks, but small wrenches, and perhaps a cleaning of the orifices. A stripped telephone wire works the best. Trace the wires from the area next to the pilot to the other end, the reset button should not be far away.

My Whirpool dryer Model LGR 563 isn't heating now. Does it have a manual or electronic pilot light? I don't see a pilot light lit through the hole.

Just replace the two solinoid coils on top of the gas valve,unplug the dryer always! Two phillips head screws hold the half bracket over the coils. The larger three wire coil may have a silver sleeve in it, you need to reuse that. Just replace the set and reassemble it, your done.

Where is the pilot light on the Whirlpool Ultimate Care II Dryer?


Hello gigiknoll
Welcome to Fixya
My name is Huum,

This model should be electronic ignition and does not use a pilot light.
The igniter may be faulty.or the gas module may be faulty.
Pilots are a thing of the past!
This requires a tech to test it with equipment.
