    Being that your URL says "FREE" trouble shooting and that isn't true. Since to get an answer from your "Expert People" I have to subscribe to one of your "PAY" to get answer sights. Your stuff sucks. You put out there that you have "Expert People" to help which isn't true. Unless I want to pay. You don't put that in your URL. If I don't want to pay I get what others have tried to do to fix the problem. This site has been nothing but a bust for information.

Rude little guy, aren't you. In fact you did receive an answer, and a very sensible one, to your posted question about this problem. You've posted the question three times. I see that you were given what seems like some very sound advice, for FREE no less, by an individual who I'd say knows exactly what they are talking about. If you choose not to follow up on that advice, you're on your own. Further, you blame the site and it's people for not finding your solution. Yet, you seem to not take in to account that none of us are there to visually inspect the problem. You certainly can't expect that, for free, someone will rush over to your home and fix it for you, any more than you can expect us to telepathically determine the precise cause of the problem.

In turn, you have given advice on 10 different problems with vehicles that other people have posted. Some of your advice is moderately ok. A few of your responses are downright rude and uncalled for, and at least 2 of your pieces of advice could easily cause someone to damage their vehicle if they attempt them, causing them to need to pay even more to a professional to repair them.

Your safest bet, in my personal opinion (not that it will mean much to someone like yourself) is to leave repair work to those who know something about it, and the next time you need advice, pay a professional. You came here for FREE advice. Don't expect miracles for free. If you want absolute certainty, pay the price to have someone come look at the problem so you can get a precise solution immediately

Good luck, and have a nice day.

The dryer was working fine then one day it stoped heating the timer does not advance. So I suspect that is the problem

Although it does sounds like the switch, you might want to check the heating element to make sure that isn't open. That could cause the unit not to heat or the switch to advance (but unlikely)

Intermittant heating.It will begin to glow....sometimes the flames shoot out for a short time....but then go out. Then, it will continue to glow red without flames igniting,then goes dim....couple minutes...

This is usually caused by faulty coils on the heat valve. they can be purchased seperate from the gas valve and are relatively easy to install..

Gas dryer heat is intermediate

does the igniter glow white or orange? if it is orange you need to replace it. has to be white hot to ignite. if the igniter is white it could be the coils not opening the gas valve all the time - an intermittent problem.

GE Gas Dryer Model #dbvh512gfoww heat problems

Hi, It sounds like the coils on top the gas valve are bad. If the ignitor glows but shuts off before a flame, the coils need changed.
I hope this helps. If I can assist you further, please let me know.

Kenmore gas dryer starts to heat but does not maintain the heat. It cools down after a few minutes.

Something simple for you to try is: remove the duct from the dryer,run a cycle,IF the unit works fine, you will need to have your vent system cleaned to the outside. If you still have troubles, you will need to place a service call to have the unit diagnosed

Hotpont/Zanussi Electric dryer TC7102W no timed heat

it seems thatyour getting no heat on the permanent press and gentle cycles correct? if we know the heater is working that takes care of a number of possible causes turn the power off and remove the rear panel of the dryer. you will see a couple of thermo disks mounted on the heater probably will find tons of lint on these thermostats and what happens is you turn your dryer on low heat or automatic cycle where the dryer will run until it senses the clothes have no more humidity inside the drum every time the thermostat shuts off the heater the dial moves a little closer to the off position. if there is a build up of lint around these sensers the dryer will heat up until the sensers turn the heat off. what happens now is the thermostats are nice and warm as the lint buildup iacts like an insulator preventing the thermostat from calling for more heat so it will take forever to dry a load of clothes. brush the lint off the thermostats and while you are at it vacuum the back of the dryer there should be a lot of lint there

Intermittant heat for drier

check for flow of air through the dryer arts as it sounds like the clicking is the thermal cut out activating, this prevents the dryer from overheating, the common cause for overheating is blockage (no air flow) or the fan that blows the air round the machine is not working, or not working properly, so check the fan see if its turning etc hope i have helped, if so please rate me
