Question about Dryers
My kenmore gas dryer does not heat up but runs. Do I need to replace the glow plug?
HI, Can you see the ignitor glow at all? If not, check the thermofuse first. It is located on the blower housing white, /4" wide, & 3" long. If you can remove the rear panel on your model, that is where the fuse is located. If you can not remove the back panel, some models you have to remove the whole front panel and some the lower half front panel comes off.
If the ignitor does glow, you will need to replace the coils on top of the gas valve.
I hope this helps. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to
