Hi, With the dryer running, look into the small front panel and see if the ignitor is glowing at all. If the ignitor glows but there is no flame, the coils on the gas valve are bad. If the ignitor does not glow, you will need to (with the dryer unplugged) check continuity on the thermostats and the flame sensor on the side of the burner.
If any of these parts show no continuity, that part will need changed.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

No heat in dryer . the drum turns but there is no heat in dryer. does no dry clothes


Gas or Electric?

Electric - it is possible that the element is burned out. You will have to remove the back for access. Make sure you are disconnected before you test anything..

Gas - is yours a pilot fired or igniter? Pilot - check the thermocouple. Igniter - is it intact?

Dryer runs fine but does not heat


Check that the pilot light is lit and flame kicks on when dryer is activated. If no flame, then check gas valve. If only pilot remains lit but does not increase when dryer is activated, then you could have a bad coupler or sensor or circuit problem which would have to be tested with a voltmeter and/or test light.

No heat


If this is a GAS dryer make sure that the igniter or pilot light has not gone out. If this is an electric dryer, check the vent to make sure it has not clogged up and prevents the air from circulating in the dryer.

Otherwise if it is an electric dryer, make sure the heating element has not blown a fuse or burnt out.

There are 2 house fuses in the dryer circuit. If
1 of the 2 fuses is blown, the drum may turn
but the heater will not operate.
Gas supply valve is not open (gas models).
Dryer does not have anough air supply to
support the burner flame (gas models).
LP gas supply tank is empty or there has been
a utility interruption of natural gas (gas
models).Replace fuse.
Check to make sure supply valve is open. See INSTALLATION
INSTRUCTIONS for procedure.
See INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS.
Refill or replace tank.
Dryer should heat when utility service is restored

You may have gotten water in your igniter or pilot light. Put a hair dryer to the areas where the pilot and igniter and burner is so that it can be fried out.

Kenmore dryer not heating


hi,
1) When this happens, something has interrupted the heat source. Run the dryer for a couple of minutes to see if it gets hot. Be sure you don't have the dial or controls on a non-heat setting, such as "Fluff" or "Wrinkle Control."






 


2) On an electric dryer, this may mean that the circuit breaker or fuse that controls the power has blown; reset or replace this. Be aware that a dryer may have two breakers or fuses. The motor will run when one works, but the heating element requires both.

3) On a gas dryer, recheck the control's setting to be sure it's not on a heat-free setting. Check the gas valve behind the dryer to be sure the gas supply is turned on. Also make sure the house's main gas valve is turned on.

4) Most modern dryers have electronic ignition instead of a pilot light. If yours has electronic ignition and isn't heating, call a qualified repairperson.

On an older dryer, make sure the pilot light is burning. If it isn't, relight it. You can find directions in your owner's manual, and pilot light instructions are often mounted next to the pilot light on the burner, too.
