The dryer heats up the first time it starts but wont heat up again i can see the glowing red from the element but the burner wont light

Hi, If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes 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 differentthings that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat. check outthis electric no heat tip...

My Electric Dryer's Heating Element Glows orange while in use

Hi. this is quite normal when you dry heavy items. the dryer has sensors inside the compartment that will sense cotton and wool garment. if needed, the thermal regulator will adjust the element to the appropriate range. If there is a problem, the electronic thermal fuse will blow. this is the safety feature that will trigger itself if a fire or over heating is sensed. Also, if your selector knob is set to a cotton or high heat mode, the element will normally glow intensively during this cycle.

Please rate and god bless.

Hi rfairess

it sounds like the high limit thermostat is cutting out and not resetting itself.

Whirlpool dryer - element heats, then shuts off quickly

Sounds like you have a stopped up vent on your home, when the vent gets stopped up the dryer can't circulate the air properly in the dryer and causes it to get to hot which causes the high limit thermostat to kill power to the element. If you need more help with this visit the link below:
