Dbsr463eg7ww no heat


First check to see that the exhaust venting line is clear (not full of lint) as well as the path in the dryer to the line. This is the most common cause of no heat.
Second set the knob to heat turn on dryer with the lights off and the door open but the "open door" switch so that it still rotates with the door open. Look at the back of the rotating drum for a orange/red glow behind the drum (the heater coils). If there is no glow the heater coils are probably broken.
As the dryers age, the amount of thermal cycles the heater elements go through until the point when the coil wire breaks. There usually two heater coils behind the rotating drum (one hotter than the other and when combined the hottest heat temperature setting. You will need to pop open the top where you see the belt that turns the drum. The belt is removed from the spring loaded tensioner pulley at the base of the dryer. Then you can lift the drum out to get to the heater coils. Since no heat, both should be broken and will require replacement.

No high heat in dryer


This type of dryer has 2 rows of elements. If one is out then you will not have high heat.


Basically to get into ge dryers your start by popping the top then removing the front. Then the drum comes out.

How can i repair the dryer when it wont heat. It heats only in the beggining then it does heat anymore more after 10 minutes, how can I fix it?


I was dealing with this exact issue for the past few days! I have a model # MDG5500AWQ. Starting to hang dry clothes and all. I read through these blogs and found that it was a GAS VALVE SOLENOID COIL that I needed to be REPLACED. I was told by a Magtag dealer that when the gas flame cut out like this the issue was 99% of the time the gas valve solenoid coil kit. I was even trying to call around to try and get a tech out today but none were available and they wanted $65.00 just to come out and look at it. So I went to the Magtag website and found a dealer in my area and asked them for the part. If you open the front part of the dryer and push the button to make the dryer turn on without the door closing it in a few seconds the flame starts on and about 1 minute later the flame totally cuts out. My husband just got through changing out these coils which were smaller than the picture, only $35.00 with tax front the dealer, and located in the very front of the dryer,. towards the bottom, when you open the dryer front. He replaced them and I'm drying a load of laundry right now, thank God!

Kenmore 80 series gas dryer has not heat


most of these dryers have a little plastic plug on the front, left side. pop that plug out and look inside after turning it on. you should see a red glow. if not, then your ignitor has broken. if you see a glow, then the problem is probably one of the two little coils on the gas valve. these coils will sense if there is something to light the gas [the red glow] and open the valve - if the coils are bad, they won't open the valve
