Dryer wont stay lit


if the flame is liting most likely problem is bad air movement.go outside with thedryer running and check the hood to see how strong the air is blowing out,if there's a cage or anything blocking the hood remove it,if the vent line is a long run remove the vent line from the back of the dryer,stick a leaf blower into it and blow out the lint to the outside.also with the dryer unplugged,remove the bottom panel,remove the lint filter and metal duct the filter slides into,clean that out and blow out the blower wheel with a shop vac,you can blow out the gas tube where the flame ignites to make sure it's clean blow off the motor and the cabinet and vac up all lint that blows forwards.you can try running the dryer with the vent line removed to see if it runs any better.when the dryer first heats up the flame will come on until the temp. is reached and it will shut down,one more thing to check,when gas coils start to fail you'll have heat for like the first 15 to 30 minutes,then when the coils heat up the ignitor will glow but no flame,after the coils cool down they will work again.how are you running it on timed dry or more or less dry,if you run it on auto or more or less dry there's a sensor inside where the lint filter is,try cleaning it up or try running it on timed dry to see if it runs any different,when on auto the heat comes on,when it reaches temp. the heat stops and the timer will advance,when it calls for heat the timer stops and the heat comes back on,it will do this until the clothes are dry.your model has an even heat board in it that can also cause problems but if the flame is liting it sounds like you have a block somewhere.go here this will tell you a little more about your model dryer.

My dryer blew its fuse like 6 times, I would go to the garage and click it dryer fuses on and off and at first that worked but no it will run and stay on but just doesnt blow hot air


Hello,

That sounds to me as if the heat element has broken and when it broke a small part of it fell onto the metal housing where the heat element fits into,as a result of the broke element no longer being suppost safe and sound it the housing but instead it sat on the housing and created a short circuit that caused the fuse to blow.

By replacing the heat element it should once again heat and not blow the fuse

Dryer runs, rotates, and air blows but does not blow hot air, therefore cloths will not dry.


Hi, If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes 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 differentthings that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat. check outthis electric no heat tip...

Dryer will not turn off is it the timer? the dial does not move


do you have heat?when the dryer heats up the timer doesn't move,when the heat shuts off the timer moves,when the heat comes back on the timer stops,the timer will not move if there's no heat.if you have heat it could be the timer.also run the dryer when it's cold for 15 to 30 minutes and check to see if the flame is still liting,there's a little cover on the front panel that you can pop off to see the flame,there's a set of gas coils on top of the gas valve that when they fail they will stop working when they heat up,when the coils cool down they will let the gas through and the flame will lite again,common problem with gas dryers and most likely your problem.also when was the last time you cleaned out the dryer,you need to blow out the vent line if it's a long run from the back of dryer to the outside i use a leaf blower to blow out the line,make sure the outside vent is clear so the air can blow through,next you need to clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into and vac out the inside of dryer where the motor is,you should do this once a year moreso with gas so you don't have a fire,also your clothes will dry on time and you'll have less problems with the dryer.let me know what you find.

Dryer blowing cold air only


Check your heat sensors, one or more must be OPEN.

Dryer runs but will not heat. Replaced fuse and


your cycling thermostat needs changed too. the thermal fuse is your last safety measure that goes, which means your cycling thermostat is not shutting down the heat element once it detects the right temp hot air in the blower housing so it let the heat element glow until either the high-limit sensor shuts the heat down or the thermal fuse blows. Change the cycling thermostat and good luck

Heater blows cold air from top vents after running for 1.3 hours


Sounds like you may be able to fix it by flushing your antifreeze and back flushing the heater core. Some car owners cheep out and put stop leak into the antifreeze, others dont change there antifreeze at all. Both are mistakes.
