    It is a gas dryer. I turns and blows but it will not get hot.

    It is a Kenmore Dryer. Model # 110 72202101. It is 4 years old. I was trying to see if it has a pilot light that needs to be lit or if o had to by a heater cord or what. Thanks a lot for your help.

You may want to look on repair clinic .com they have the ignitor for your unit. at this link. you need a small phillip screwdriver to remove the glow bar. the glow bar is what ignites the gas.

    Ok. There is a small cover on the lower front panel. Remove it and start the dryer. If the ignitor glows and turns off before there is a flame, you need to replace the coils on the gas valve.

    If the ignitor does not glow, follow these instructions:



    UNPLUG the dryer! Remove the rear panel of the dryer and locate the fuse. It is white and ¼” wide and 3” long. It is located on the blower housing. Remove the wires and check to see if it has continuity. If it does not, you need to replace it. If the fuse checks out ok, please let me know and I can instruct you on how to test the ignitor.

    Please let me know if this help or if I can assist you further.



    Thanks

    Vic

Samsung DV338aew does not get hot


I just took the front panel off of my Samsung dryer the belt is off. If you take the front panel off you won't believe what you will see it's so much dust... from all the clothes drying. Did you tried to take the front panel off? First turn off the switch to the dryer at the fuse box so there will be no power in there while you vacuum it out. As soon as I can put the belt on I will vacuum it thoroughly. I'm sure that is the reason why it the temp... is not hot enough.
Good luck.
