Question about Hotpoint Dryers

1 Answer

The Gas won't ignite! I've got this Hotpoint DLL2650BGlad Heavy Duty Dryer for over 20 years. The carbon igniter won't get red! Is it the fuse problem? All the other machanical functions are good.

    Much thanks, 'seabreeze' & 'appliancepartspros'.

    I'm getting the serviceman. Laundry's piling up.



    One of those parts has to be replaced anyway.

Not the fuse I think. Get the multimeter and unplug the wires going to the igniter. Make sure power is off also before attempting to check igniter.
The igniter is fragile e glass and when testing with meter set on continuity should so no resistance.Just like touching the meter probes together. Below is my site link and email. I am not sure if this is the part number but enter both modl and this part number, WE4X444

    Yes, thermal fuse could be broken , the heat sensor for the flame, the temperature thermostat, all of those things need to be checked. I;m having a little trouble finding the diagram for this 20 year old dryer but until I do please keep me posted on what you want. If you have the tools, multimeter and time to disassemble I am here to go through the process.

I have a Frigidaire gallery commercial heavy duty dryer model #GLGR331AS1 it just stopped heating turns on and runs but no heat. Could it be the solenoids or the igniter ?


If the igniter glows but it doesn't ignite, most of the time, it's the valve coils, most of the other times, it's the radiant sensor.

If the igniter doesn't glow, check your thermal fuse. If your thermal fuse is good, replace your igniter.

Good luck!

The unit just stopped heating and drying the clothes.The burner on my LP Kenmore dryer won't light, otherwise everything else works just fine. I've have taken everything apart and cleaned out all...


Generally, with a gas dryer, there is an ignition device that heats to a specific temperature and this causes the gas to ignite. When this electric ignition fails to work, the gas will not ignite and there will be no heat. I had this happen and had to call a professional. It was a simple matter of installing a new ignition device and it worked perfectly for years. I hope this helps! If it is a new dryer, check to see if this part might be covered under warranty

I have a kenmore heavy duty 70 series gas. not heating up. were is the heating element. could you send a technical manual.


Your dryer does not have a element. The problem is either with the igniter, or the gas valve coils. I would replace both of them. I think they would run about $35.00 for both. Here is a link to the parts.

Their is a way to test it with an ohm meter Unplug unit. unplug igniter connector has two white wires going to it an check for continiuty between the two terminals on the igniter side of connector,.if no continuity replace..Hint when installing new ignitor do not touch the heating end of it oils from your body will create a hot spot and shorten the life of the ignitor....Hope this helps in your repair

Dryer runs fine but heating unit will not ignite


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...

Hotpoint aquarius ctd00 does not blow hot air


If gas, check the following.

1. Gas valve coils
Igniter glows, then shuts off without igniting gas - the problem is probably with defective coils (black, located on top of the gas valve). It is recommended to replace all coils (usually two or three) if found defective.

Note: Sometimes the whole gas valve may be defective, thus not letting the gas out. However, this problem is not common.

2. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.

3. Igniter
Igniter may burn out or break. Replace the igniter if found defective.

Note: Igniters are very fragile and break easily. It is recommended to handle the igniter only touching the ceramic part of it (usually white in color).

4. Flame sensor (or radiant heat sensor)
Replace the sensor (located near the igniter) if found defective.


If electric, check the following.


1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses. An electric dryer uses two circuit breakers or fuses, and if only one of two is tripped or blown, the dryer might still run but not heat. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

2. Heating element
A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.

3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.
