Check behind the dryer to make sure the tube running to the exit vent isn't clogged or blocked. Then go out side where the vent runs to and make sure it isn't clogged.

My gas dryer doesn't heat very well, if at all. Do I need to replace parts or are there ways do check and clean parts.


First i would clean the dryer vent. If the vent is clogged then the dryer cannot circulated the air inside the dryer. This will cause long dry times. If the dryer heats at first then doesnt heat anymore after about 10 min you probably need new coils

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...

Amana dryer not advancing on auto


Make sure the vent from the dryer to the outside is clean.
Reduced air flow can cause your symptom.

You can remove the vent hose from the dryer and operate the dryer in the automatic cycle.'
If the timer advances you know the vent needs cleaning.
Clean the lint filter housing also.
A flashlight helps to see all the way down the housing.

Probably the heater element. You need to pull the back of teh machine off and check the heating element for continuity. If its open then its shot.
These are parts that normally go bad.
Check on ebay these can be had for less than 50.00

Dryer heats up but clothes won't dry


Sounds like to me, that you need to check the vent going outside from the dryer. I had the same problem, and found a birds nest in the dryer vent on the outside of my house restricing air flow. If that doesn't fix the problem, look into a new heating element and or thermostats for the dryers. The old ones could just not be getting hot enough anymore. Good luck.
