Question about GE 7.0 Cu. Ft. Super Capacity Gas Dryer - White
My dryer is about 3 years old. Recently the dryer went from working fine to having almost no heat.
First, yes I have opened and cleaned all duct work and also opened up the dryer housing and cleaned out the blower motor, lint duct work, etc.. There was a fair amount of lint build up but for 3 years worth of use I would say it was okay.
Now, onto the problem. I start the cycle and the dryer starts with decent heat for a few minutes then loses all heat completely after a few minutes. I look at the bottom peak hole on the underside of the unit for the igniter glow and yes it glows for about 5 secs then shuts off then repeats the process about 30-45 seconds later but doesn't have any real signs of heat.
Seals look good, everything cleaned out and yes my gas line is turned on.
Hi, It sounds like the coils on top the gas valve are bad. If the ignitor glows but shuts off before a flame, the coils need changed.
I hope this helps. If I can assist you further, please let me know.

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 have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.
