Sounds like the thermal fuse (slim white piece located on the blower housing ) Pt# 3390719 , or , the ignitor Pt# 279311 is bad .Start with the thermal fuse first . Disconnect the power and put the 2 wires together (tape). Reconnect power and see if dryer heats .

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.

Cold dryer


if the dryer runs normal for the first 15 to 30 minutes you have bad gas coils located on the top of the gas valve,take out the 2 phillips screws,remove the top cover and change out the gas coils.when the coils are failing they will work until they heat up then they stop letting the gas come into the dryer,when they cool down then they will work again.change out the gas coils part number 279834

Gas dryer - bruner will not come on


Probably a broken belt or a bad start winding. Remove the rear panel and check the fuse mounted on the blower housing. If open replace it and clear the vent to the outside. Click here for fuse locations and pictures.
