Sounds like your overload is going out. It resets itself once it cools down. And then you can have heat again. Then when heat is applied it opens the overload.

Gas dryer wont stay lit

I'm assuming it "starts" to heat but then cuts off. Usually after the first minute of running you can open dryer door and feel heat but after awhile it doesn't heat.

1st, most common problem on a gas dryer not heating is "airflow" . They will "short-cycle" if there isn't near perfect airflow. Turn dryer on and go to outside exhaust vent. It should blow about as hard as you can blow into your hand. If any doubt disconnect dryer vent line from wall and let blow into your laundry room for one cycle and see if it is now working correctly. If it does work correctly when vent line is disconnected at wall you KNOW there is blockage somewhere in your vent line.

2nd, most common problem are gas coils. Easy to replace. 99% of all gas coils are the same so here is the part# (WE04X10020) (write it down.

Hello, I have a kenmore electric dryer model 11063932101 that was having difficulties heating while drying and it took a long time to dry the clothes. After a few weeks of this it began to have a burnt...

the cutting off is a restricted vent, you will need to disconnect the vent and run a load of clothes, then clear the vent of the restriction. the humming is the motor, either the belt is off/broken or the motor is stuck, you will need to take it apart and see what the problem is, I am not sure if the Kenmore has a belt brake trip on the motor or not, if it does it will have to little buttons where it plugs into the motor one button trips it the other resets it. Hope this helps Tim

Hotpoint nvl333gyoww gas dryer's timer stopped working and ran for an extended length of time (about a day). After looking over the dryer, i noticed that during the no heat cycle the timer would work. So...

the timer : if you use time dry the timer should always move and complete the cycle. if you use auto dry the timer uses a sensor to tell the timer to move. If your not getting any heat your sensor might not tell the timer to move.

So lets start with the no heat problem. First make sure your Vent is clear or just disconnect the vent and put a pair of womans stocking over the end to keep the dust down, This will ensure you do not have a blocked vent. ((( If you have a blocked vent on a gas dryer the safty sensor will shut off the gas valve and you will only get a little bit of heat))) Now try the dryer for small load, ((( if this solved your problem then you have a cloged vent )))

If this did not solve your problem then the coils on your gas valve in the dryer are probably bad.

Roper dryer stopped working during cycle REX6634RQO

replace your t-fuse again but also chekc to see if the vent going outside is restricted. if hte vent is smashed or clogged the heat has nowhere to go. i would say that is your issue. clean your vent before you change he t-fuse.

Dryer not drying after 2 or 3 cycles

I would say so if the blower is not blowing then the hot air is not moving through the clothing as well and the lint would build up if you go outside and check the outlet vent and your not feeling any air then its not blowing. also if it is an older dryer make sure that the vent is not blocked my mother lives in the country and on windy days she has to go through at least 2 cycles to get them dry because tthe wind blows the vent shut... she has a brand new maytag dryer. good luck

Hi, my 6 year old kenmore dryer series 700 started not drying the clothes in a single dryer cycle a week ago. I'd just run it another cycle and the clothes would be dry. Today there is no heat at all....

First check the vent pipe going out of the house might be cloged the best way to clean it out you self is to try a leaf blower if has enough force now it is not heating is because it has blow the high-limt thermal on the tub the heating element is in at the top of the tube on the left side (this is in the back panel of the dryer ) use a ohms meter to check if it is open if it is it will need to be replaced the cloged vent will cause the long dry time and will end up blowing the high-limit on the tube good luck

No heat - ac stays on blowing through defrost vents

If you have the heater directed to the windshield, the AC will turn on. Move the control away from defrost.
