Check the limit switch that is located on the fire box. They usually have a reset button on them. They are about the size of a penny. Also, check the continuity of the door switch. These are common problems with dryers. You should have checked the continuity of the ignitor before replacing. Also, with a volt meter, test voltage to the ignitor to see if it is being "told" to come on.

    If it has a reset, which it can be an auto reset, it will be located between the two wires going to the limit switch.

1993 Mercury Sable won't stay running


Seems that the fault relates to heating, check if the fuel pressure is dropping when the engine heats up, allow the car to idle so as to confirm . Also this will indicate if there is failure of the ignition system, This can fault in the ignition , failure of the HT coils.
What is important is your observation to the case before any part is replaced.

Motor runs, but main burner will not ignite
1.heat switch set wrong---correct switch setting
2.defective timer or timer circuit---check timer wiring--replace timer motor or switch as needed
3.defective centrifugal switch in motor---clean switch or replace as needed
4.gas supply valve closed----open gas valve
5.inoperative solenoid coil---test coil for open circuit & the voltage to it
???
Pilot burner goes out
1.insufficient gas supply---- low gas pressure or clogged pilot filter or partially closed gas valve
2.carbon deposit on thermocouple tube---clean tube & check pilot burner for proper combustion

4.faulty ignition or reset valve or thermocouple---replace

Dryer everything works, but no heat.


You didn't mention whether it was a gas or electric dryer, but either way it probably just isn't producing heat. If it's electric, it's most likely a defective heating element. If it's gas, the burner probably isn't igniting. On both there is usually some sort of thermal shut off switch that can also go bad and shut off the heat element or the burner.

I have a LG dryer (DLG5988B) with no heat, maybe the igniter is bad. What is the part needed, and can I replace the igniter myself.


First check the high limit switch to make sure it didn't trip. You will need a multi meter to check.

Kenmore elite gas dryer doesn't always heat or dry clothes


An intermittent heat problem is probably in the gas igniter circuit. I would first check the flame sensor next to the igniter for dust on the glass cover. If you have a trouble door, you can see if the igniter is working. Sometimes gas valve controls will fail. If you have to replace the whole control, check inside the plumbing for filters.

Mytag Dryer ModelLdg4000Aw


I have a Maytag Atlantis Gas Dryer that will turn on, rotate, but will not get hot and dry the clothes. A load of clothes in the afternoon, didn’t dry, tried again but didn’t dry – went to bed after putting on auto dry - next morning the dryer was still rotating and didn’t turn off. No hot air – only cold air.
