    The glow is probably the electronic ignitor glowing for a few seconds at a time .

I replaced the thermal fuze in my kenmore gas dryer. Now not only does the dryer not FIRE up, but when I push the button to start the dryer, it will not fire and will shut off shortly after. When I let go...


when you start the dryer does the igniter glow red hot? they crack very easy.If you are sure you put the wires on the fuse the right way,and the igniter is glowing, and you remembered to turn the gas back on,( I've done that ), no kinks in the gas line.The next thing I would look at is the gas vavle, or coils. good luck.

First cycle dryer will fire as normal. each time after it will not light. glow plug is working but no gas allowed to turn on. i'm feeling it may need coils for gas valve?


Hi,

I would change the ignitor first...


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 dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....



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



check out this electric no heat tip...

Does the ignition glow when you start the dryer? if so you have power to gas valve and ignition system. if not you may have an open thermostat or thermalfuse.

If the ignitor just sits there and glows all day, you have other problems, It could be a gas valve, or ignitor sensor.

if you hear the valve clicking but no gas the valve is bad.when the burner lights theres a probe that senses that it is lit and sends a microvoltage back to the controller to tell its lit.check to make sure all ground wires are grounded to a clean metal surface.

Gas dryer


There should be a gas igniter, inside of the burner chamber, that will glow bright red before the gas will be allowed to flow. If the dryer model that you have has a flap on the front you will be able to observe this otherwise you will have to remove the front of your machine to check it. If you post back with your machine model number I will be able to assist you further.
