    I could be one of many problems, does the dryer have a small peep hole or access panel on bottom front?...the peep hole would be a piece of plastic about the size of a quarter.

My natural gas maytag dryer does not provide hot air to dry the clothes. It apperas the gas is not igniting because after it tries it smells like gas. I beleive it could be the ignition source.

My dryer will not heat. The manual says to first check the dryers fuses. Where are these fuses located?


Hi,

They mean the fuses or circuit breaker in your house that provides power to the dryer...

Gas dryer tumbles but no heat


Depending on the model, you may have a gas vale problem. The ignitor is working but gas is not being allowed to flow to the burner. It could also be one of the temp sensors or the control board for the system. Try unplugging the dryer and then replugging it back in after a few minutes.. If that fails to work after that.. provide brand and model so we can provide more detailed assistance...

Dryer will not heat


You may have a temp switch tripped inside the dryer that will disable power (if its electric) or gas ( if its gas) from providing heat.. Since you've provided very little information on your particular dryer.. those would be my best guesses.. Hope that helps you..

Kenmore Elite Dryer HE4 Quietpak 9, has 4 dim lights showing on the console display but won't start or respond, I have bought brand new and replaced all sensors. Replaced heating element. looked like the original heating element. Pack came with new sensors. I did not test with a multimeter. My plan is to measure continuity on all the old sensors. Then do the same on the new ones. The electronic board looks good, does not smell burnt or old burnt smell. I cleaned all the lint in this dryer but unfortunately the motor has some lint in it which I surfaced cleaned. The only way to get to the motor is to remove the drum. So far I have soent $40 on all parts and a week works of troubleshooting as a novice. On the main display read, it shows two small dim lot red lines, wish I could send you a picture. Also when the fuse is off I plugged in the dryer and all the lights turned on normal. All looked in working condition except of course it did not turn on, I have not replaced the switch and with the new fuse, by the way, I bought 5 to 6 of the same fuses thinking I was burning them, that's why I bought a multimeter to retest them to see if they are not burnt. When I plug in the fuse it goes black but the door light works. I have held down the start button, nothing, held down the cancel button, nothing, I have done the crazy push all buttons even shook the machine a bit just in case something was causing whatever myth I was conjuring. I am about to give up and just buy a used one from someone else but I think I can fix this, it should be very simple to fix.
