    The first thing to check would be the heating element. A lot of people assume it is the heating element. It is best to check for open components. Anything without an ohms reading at all would be the problem. I have all sorts of dervice pictures, I have access to cheap parts, I can be more specific if you will post a brand and model number. The model number is inside the door on most units. Does this help?

Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

I looked through the peep hole in front of my gas dryer and I don't see anything lit.Dryer spins great, but doesn't heat up. What is the problem?


Igniter - The dryer's igniter is what ignites the gas that has entereddryer-ignitor.jpg through the gas valve. It will glow red, then when it reaches a certain temperature, it will trigger a thermostat that opens up the gas valve and that's when the dryer starts to heat the air. If the igniter has failed, the motor will still run but not produce any heat.

Frigidaire dryer doesn't produce heat, but everything else is working. What do I do to fix that problem?


Unplug remove panels necessary
Check the element for breaks or issues
if no problems found replace the safety devices directly in line with the power supply for the element

Runs fine Doesn't dry clothes, not enough heat?


Hi,
You will first need to determine where the problem is, I would disconnect the dryer vent from the dryer. Now if the drying improves, problem is not the dryer, its the vent system. If no change, does the unit heat at first then slowly fail to heat? Does it produce any heat? I need more information to direct you in the correct direction.
Please get back to me

My dryer spins and heat just a little but not enough to dry any clothes


Need to change the heater filament. The heater filament has several portions to produce heat. As it ages, some portions are not producing heat anymore hence the total heat produced by an old filament can not put out as much as originally designed.
