Question about Whirlpool Dryers
DRYER IS APPROX 4 YEARS OLD
IT MAY HAVE RUN THROUGH THE
NIGHT WITH OUT HEATING UP
First, as a retired Fire Captain I must recommend turning off all running appliance before leaving the house or going to bed. I can tell you some real horror stories. Now, there are several parts that can keep the heat off or flame off and they all need to be checked with an OHM meter. It could be the ignitor, ingitor sensor, or gas solenoids. Get a service tech out to check which you need or if you have an OHM meter I can give more info on what to check.

I would be suspect of the timer. Same thing happened to mine.
Rotate the timer manually a few degrees and see if the dryer operates properly. If so, replace the timer, a simple thing to do. Cost is about $75.00 and available from SearsPartsDirect.
Reply your findings and I will help you more.

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