If your dryer has an access panel at the bottom front remove it.  Start the dryer in a cycle and watch the burner area. You should see the ignitor start to glow. After a few seconds of it glowing you should hear a click and the gas come on and ignite. If the ignitor does not glow, look on the top of the air duct to the left of the gas valve. You will see 2 temp sensors. One will be white with  2 small blue wires going to it.    UNPLUG THE DRYER NOW    Remove the wires and connect them together.   BE SURE THEY DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING ELSE 

Plug dryer back in and start dryer again and see if ignitor glows and burner lights. If it works now, you need a new thermal fuse. You also want to make sure the vent duct is not clogged with lint or the hose is not kinked.  I DO NOT recommend that you run the dryer with this bypassed. It is a safety mechanism.

If this is not the problem or your dryer is not front servicable, post back and i will try to walk you through the problem.

GAS DRYER, NO HEAT. CHECK THE HEAT SETTING FIRST.
IS IT ON AIR FLUFF? I'M NOT BEING SMART, BUT YOU WOULD BE SURPRISED HOW MANY CALLS I TAKE THAT ARE ON AIR FLUFF. SECOND, LISTEN FOR A DISTINCT CLICK WHEN YOU TURN ON THE DRYER. IF YOU HEAR IT, LOOK IN THE INSPECTION HOLE ON THE FRONT OF THE DRYER, OR REMOVE THE TOE PLATE TO VIEW THE IGNITOR. IF THE IGNITOR GLOWS AND THEN CLICKS OFF BUT NO FLAME, YOU HAVE A BAD SOLENOID ON THE GAS VALVE. IF THE IGNITOR GLOWS, BUT NEVER CLICKS OFF, THE RADIANT SENSOR ATTACHED TO THE SIDE OF THE BURNER ASSEMBLY IS BAD.

IF YOU DON'T HEAR A DISTINCT CLICK WHEN YOU TURN ON THE DRYER, THE MOST LIKELY CAUSE IS THE THERMAL FUSE LOCATED ON THE BACK OF THE DRYER DOWN NEAR THE EXHAUST DUCT. IT IS A SMALL WHITE ITEM ATTACHED TO THE EXHAUST DUCT WITH TWO WIRES ATTACHED.

I would like to thank the ones who responded to giving me a 'hand' in repairing my dryer. I did like you said & changed out the coils & now the dryer is working like it should.

THE SOLENOID IS A REPLACEABLE PART ONLY. GET YOUR
MODEL # AND PURCHASE A SET OF SOLENOIDS IF YOU ARE SURE THAT IS THE PROBLEM. THE INSTALLATIONS INSTRUCTIONS SHOULD BE IN THE PACKAGE.

BE SURE YOU CHECK FOR A BAD THERMAL FUSE, CYCLING THERMOSTAT, HIGH LIMIT THERMOSTAT, BAD
TEMPERATURE SWITCH, MOTOR CENTRIFUGAL SWITCH, TIMER, AND RADIANT SENSOR. THEY ALSO WILL CAUSE A NO HEAT CONDITION.

Kenmore Elite He3 gas dryer (110-92832100) not heating. Igniter glows red for a min or so, drum spins, hear a loud 'buzzing' noise....


The problem could be flame radiant sensor or in most cases the gas valve solenoid coils sitting on top of the gas valves. The radiant sensor must be aligned perfectly with the igniter. The radiant sensor contacts bypasses one of the gas valve solenoid coils and as the igniter heats up it makes the sensor contact trips unbypassing the coil and allowing the gas to flow and be ignited.

The problem is with the solenoid coils,
one with 2-prongs and the other has 3, if the radiant sensor is aligned with igniter and working perfectly but no gas is ignited. The buzzing sound is coming from the coils trying to operate the valves. Replacing both coils is the simple and only viable solution.

My gas dryer is 3 years old and it starts to heat up when it is turned on and then stops heating while running.


This is usually due to the two gas valve solenoid coils sitting on top of the gas valves, one with 3 prongs and the other has 2. The coils work fine when cool but one or both are weak and fail when get heated. Both coils must work to open the two gas valves in order for the dryer to fire up. The coils are not repairable and the only viable solution is replacing both of them. Replace the solenoid coils and it should solve the problem.

My Maytag gas dryer won't heat. I have replaced the gas solenoids, If I tap the gas valve it lights. Old solenoids check out with correct ohms.


Hi,

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 dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....



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



check out this electric no heat tip...

No heat


If your dryer is electric then you need new heat elements.
If you have gas you need to replace the igniter coil.

Dryer won't heat up. Replaced ignighter, still


I would suspect faulty gas valve coils. These electrical coils are right above the gas valves and when energized these solenoids open the gas valves to permit gas flow to the burner. It's recommended that if any are suspected of being faulty that both (all) be replaced at the same time. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.
