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...

Dryer is not getting hot . The vent is clean and only warm. it is a gas whirlpool.Thanks


On cotton setting you ought to be getting 155f out the vent. maybe 160f max. You have warm air so everything must be working. That tells me the coils need replacing. they get weak and they get hot. Feel the coils after a few times and the bad coil will be very hot to the touch. the coils are sold in pairs for $20 I have a great link that shows what to do HERE
and I have another page HERE

I have a Whirlpool gold Ultimate Care II gas dryer and 2/3 times the ignitor glows and lights the gas, 1/3 times it won't. When the gas does light, it doesn't seem like it's getting hot enough to do...


I would suggest the coils on the gas valve . Also check the vent to make sure good air flow is getting out of the dryer . Try disconnecting the vent hose and drying a load to determine if maybe the vent is the problem .

GEW9200L runs but won't heat


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

Gas Dryer - takes to long to dry


Friend,
huuum At your service!

Sometimes this can happen when the vent line is clogged.


1. Check if the lint filter is full and needs to be cleaned.
Try this first.If the vent line is kinked or blocked
2. Then check if the outside screen covering the exhaust vent if this is even half blocked
with lint there will be no heat! This screen is to keep small animals out!
Try checking this and if it is clogged or the spring loaded door is stuck closed.
Try to clean the lint out of the corners of the flap door,
and or remove the screen permanently!
NO ANIMALS LIKE TO GET BURNT,IT'S HOT IN THAT TUBE!
Take the vent line off the rear of the dryer and try if it works. If it does you know it's the vent line and not the dryer that's the problem the dryer.





You will be fine
Bless You huuum
