SOURCE: Amana ALG443RAW Gas Dryer will not heat up.

you can remove the lower acess panel (2) 5/16 screws along bottom. youll get a good view of workings there. turn on dryer (make sure a heat cycle is selected. you should see the ignitor light with in a few secs. if not unplug the ignitor(small white connector maybe 6inhes back from ignitor itself) and with a meter ck for 110v in that connection when unit is turned on, if you do have 110volts , you hav abad ignitor. ifyou dont get 110 volts you need to check the thermostat(s) located on top of the heater box right above the ignitor, if no continuity you need a new thermo.

SOURCE: front load gas dryer lg model dlg 5988w does not heat

This can obviously be several things, but I would first check the small safety thermostat. On the gas models, there is a small pin sticking out of it which can be pushed back in to reset it. It is located on the heater housing and is only about the size of a dime, with two wires on it. This will trip out easily if your vent was not clean, or is long or restricted in some ways (like using flex ducting)
If you need more help getting to it, let me know and I'll give you more instructions.

SOURCE: GE gas dryer gets hot but doesn't dry clothes like it used to

rule number one take everything off of it and never store clothes or anything that can insulate the top it overheats them. It kind of fools all your sensors when you store stuff on top

SOURCE: Whirlpool Gas Dryer LGR4634EQ2 is not getting hot,

You may have damaged the glow bar gas ignitor when cleaning the dryer.. it's a ceramic element that gets brittle after it has been used. And if you bang into it with a vacuum hose or tool or whatever while you're cleaning it, it can crack or break....try cycling the dryer and watch the ignitor while it attempt to heat up... if there isn't any glow at all, its the ignitor... it's a simple job to swap it out...
Let me know if that doesn't work...

Model dlg0452w lg gas dryer is not getting hot


After checking for the obvious, ie; is the gas valve on, the next suspect would be the ignitor. It could be faulty or a safety device such as a blocked vent sensor, may be stopping the ignitor from coming on.

Lg dlg7188rm - My dryer is not getting hot. When I start a cycle the ignitor comes on (orange glow under dryer) and then gas comes on (blue glow). After about 30 seconds both shut off.


There are two or three sensors in the heat exchanger and another one or two in the fan housing. Check them all for continuity. One in the heat exchanger is resettable

The dryer heats up, but not hot enough to dry the clothes. Have cleaned all the vents and have good air flow.


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...

Dryer wont stay hot


Assuming you have removed the lower access panel (two or three scres all the way at the bottom of the lower front panel) to view the glow plug (ignitor), if you see the ignitor cycle on but the gas does not ignite after the machine initially heated in the beginning of the cycle you will want to replace your gas valve coils. They are the round black things mounted to the top of your gas valve.
This should solve your problem.
Good luck to you!!

If you have to reset the thermal fuse your vent is clogged so be sure to clean the vent all the way to the outside.

If your vent is clear (strong flow of air at vent outlet outside) then you have a bad gas valve. I have seen this a few times on LG gas dryers. You really only need one of the coils on the gas valve, but they are not available individually. You have to get the entire valve.
