Question about Dryers

Open Question

I have a Duet Sport gas dryer that is not heating up. All the vents are clear.

There is no "click" when the dryer is started. Does that mean the burner needs to be replaced?

I would consult the place of purchase. If they do not stand behind the product, then get the manufacturers support #. They will stand behind their product, especially if it is a possible fire hazard. THe smell you are smelling could be anything, but without being there and taking off the cover and doing a visual check. it's hard to dianose. It is possible that something that is plastic has fallen out of a pocket and gotten inside the unit while it was drying clothes and fallen onto the igniter housing.

SOURCE: duet gas dryer shuts off after 15 min

I cleaned out the vent that was clogged pretty good, put dryer back together (a solution I read in this blog), and now it is working fine. I was testing with bottom open.

SOURCE: Dryer air heats up but does not dry the clothes. Just replaced the timer but did not fix the problem. Air vents are cleared.

One of two possiblities:

1. Dryer vent is blocked - check the air coming through the outside vent
2. Blower Fan is clogged - remove the lower front panel and clean out the fan wheel

You may want to check if the heating element needs replacing. Most Dryers have 2 heating elements that are found by taking the back off, some of the newer dryers have 3.

Duet gas gas dryer has no heat


does the flame go on and then shut down if so make sure vent hose is clear all the way through if ok then you need to locate the blower wheel and make sure there isnt a sock jambed in it and its tight on the shaft not spinning loose they crack and are servicable.

I have a whirlpool Duet gas dryer, model ggw9200lw0. It will glow then heat up but switches off right away.


It sounds to me like your flame is not getting enough air. Make sure that ur screen is clean then clean your dryer vent. The easiest way to see if it is your dryer vent is to take the vent off the back of the dryer. If it runs good without it then you need to clean it. If the dryer heats up a couple times then wont heat up after that then you need to replace the coils

This happened to me. Turned out it was a gas valve fracture which had to be replaced by the gas company. That's if you have a gas dryer

No heat


If lint is clogged inside the vent tubes that will cause the no heat problem, A moister sensor shuts down the burner for this reason. If the vents are clear the sensor is faulty. If no click is heard upon starting the dryer the spark ignitor is faulty too

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 www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html that will walk you thru the troubleshooting. It's a different model but the testing of the parts will be the same.

Duet front loader dryer


Check the lint trap and the vent. If the vent is clogged or crushed in anyway then replace it with a new dryer vent.
There reasons why a dryer will not dry clothes:
Clogged Lint Trap
Crushed or clogged vent
Last but not your issue, not getting and heat to the unit due to glow ignitor bad or no gas supply or bad gas valve.
So check what I told you and this should fix the problem right away

Propane Gas Dryer (Whirlpool DUET Front Loader) not drying


huuum At your service!

Did this tech do some wash to the dryer and feel that there was no heat?
He was not a good tech


Sometimes this can happen when the vent line is clogged.


1. Check if the lint filter is full and needs to be cleaned.
Try this first.
2. Then check if the outside screen covering the exhaust vent if this is even half blocked
with lint there will be no heat! This screen is to keep small animals out!
Try checking this and if it is clogged or the spring loaded door is stuck closed.
Try to clean the lint out of the corners of the flap door,
and or remove the screen permanently!
NO ANIMALS LIKE TO GET BURNT,IT'S HOT IN THAT TUBE! They sense this and stay clear.
It is 2 years that mine is off and all is fine.





You will be fine
Bless You huuum
PLEASE GIVE ME A GOOD RATING BEFORE YOU SIGN OFF!
