Question about Estate TGDX640JQ Gas Dryer
The dryer is running but it isn't hot and it is taking the clothes a long time to dry.
On the front panel you'll see a plastic cover that you pop off to see if ignitor is glowing,pop it off and start it,also when it starts do you hear a clicking sound,if no click and ignitor isn't glowing you have a bad thermal fuse,when the fuse blows it's from the dryer running to hot,usually from dryer not being cleaned out or crushed or blocked vent line,unplug the dryer,pull it away from the wall,remove vent line from the back,and remove the back panel,your filter is on top so all your thermostats are in the back,look at the left side you'll see the metal duct your lint filter slides into,to the right and down low you'll see a white piece with two wires,this is the thermal fuse,pull at least one wire off and check it with a meter to see if it's bad,while you're back there,remove the four screws that hold the filter duct on and remove the filter and two phillips screws on the top panel,remove the duct and clean it out,if the vent line is a long run go outside and make sure the hood is open,no covers or screen covering the opening,if clear get a leaf blower,stick it into the vent line from where it connects to dryer and blow out the vent line,put in the new thermal fuse,you should also clean out the front cabinet and you should do this at least once a year so you don't have a fire and your clothes will dry on time,if the fuse is good check the ignitor inside the cabinet,if the ignitor glows but doesn't lite check the sensor and gas coils,when the gas coils are bad usually you'll have a flame liting for like the first 15 to 30 minutes then no flame,when the coils heat up they fail,when they cool you'll have a flame again,go here and see parts
go here to take dryr apart
if you need anymore help let me know and if you don't have a meter go buy one,it will be cheaper than changing out parts you don't need,set the meter on say 20k ohms,you'll see a number 1,touch the leeds together and you'll see anything but 1,remove at least one wire from the part you're checking,touch the leeds to both sides of the part,if the 1 stays there the part is bad,any other reading the part is good,it's that simple

more than likely the heating element has gone out. if your clothes have no heat then the element is the most likely cause. you can get one for anywhere between $30 - $50. you'll need to know model and serial #'s. usually easy to replace.
