Most of the time, the problem is:
1. a plugged vent system.
2. broken heating elements or
3. a bad thermostat.
To check the venting system, turn the machine on and check for a strong air flow where the dryer exits the house, outside. If there is weak or no air flow, you may have an obstruction in the ducting, at the drter, or at the louvered vent in the wall to the outside. Unplug the dryer and remove the duct. Holding it like a "U", take it outside and shake it out. Look ate the wall vent; clean as necessary. Look into the dryer exhaust, remove any debris found there. Pull the lint trap and inspect the cavity. Vacuum out any debris. Replace the ducting.
If this doesn't fix you. Check your heating elements. If you have an electrical test meter and know how to use it, gain access to your heating element terminals inside the back panel, and test for continuity. Replace any defective heating elements. They are readily available from any appliance parts supply house.
If this still doesn't solve your problem, test and/or replace the thermostat as required.
Hope this was useful to you!

I have a gas dryer that when cycle begins it heats but after a while it stops heating and it takes too long for clothes to dry...Why is this happening?

I would check the the vent hose first. It might be clogged with lint or stopped up some other way or even crimped where the air won't flow. Turn on the dryer and go outside and be sure there is a good flow of air coming out of the vent. If there's not much air flow dis connect the hose and clean it out

I have a dryer model mde3706ayw that is not heating up...i have replaced the heating element, thermal fuse and both the high limit and cycling thermostats and still all im getting is cool air...the timer...

Check to be sure that you have 240v at the terminal block. If you replaced all those parts, there is nothing left to check. Either you don't have 240v or one of those parts is bad.

My Whirpool Duet Gas Dryer is no longer heating up.

This is probally the coils. They tend to fail as the dryer heats. There is a video at that will walk you thru the troubleshooting. It's a different model but the testing of the parts will be the same.

Dryer that will not dry well

One of two things... An almost totally blocked vent to the outside or a bad heating element. Remove the vent form the back of the dryer and get a "feel" for how much air flow is coming straight out without any venting connected. Then connect it back up and with the dryer running, go outside and give it the "feel test" judging as close as you can the percentage of air flow loss through the house venting. Anything more the 30% air flow loss will cause the dryer to take forever to dry. As far as the heating element, on a Whirpool, it slides up into a plenum in the back as kind of a rack type assembly. Not that difficult to replace by remove wire connecting to it, thermostats attached to it and (probably) two screws that are securing it in the plenum.

Whirpool twin thin no heat

Make sure you have 220 volts first at dryer. Heating element is on back of dryer. You'll need a test meter to see what's wrong unless you can see broken wire in element itself. Thanks, please leave feedback or contact me again for more info if you need it.
