Question about Dryers

Gas clothes dryer won't heat

My daughter called about her clothes dryer. Given it wouldn't heat I thought the pilot light was out. Do they have a pilot light or or otehr device to ignite the gas. Perhaps, given it has to spin, there is an electric light source; therefore, like a glow plug. Thus, there is my analysis, anyone else with a better one.

Pls send response to doggle15@aol.com.

Thanks for ready - helping gets you a big hug.

Trying to light a new gas dryer. was unaware it was gas lol


Gas appliances normally require a pilot flame. This flame heats a thermocouple which operates the main gas valve when you want heat. The pilot flame may be out. Gas valves have a start-up process which normally requires you to press and hold the pilot flame button for up to 30 seconds (until the thermocouple heats up).
Your appliance will have been delivered with a user's guide in which you will find the pilot lighting procedure...OR...there may be a guide adjacent to the gas valve.

Check your the complete venting system. Turn the dryer on and feel the back vent to see if you have any heat at all. If not could be a valve issue or thermostat problem. On newer dryers they have glow plugs, so no pilot light.
