Sounds like a gas valve issue, Its cheaper then buying a brand new dryer. as for whether or not you should replace the dryer is up to you. As long as youre happy with the dryer i would just fix it.

Kenmore Gas Dryer not heating


Find the gas solenoid and tap it with a hammer while the dryer is running, if the heat starts then the solenoid should be replaced.
It is usually behind an access panel along the bottom of the unit.

I have a kenmore elite, model# 11062952100. Everything works fine but there is no heat on any cycle. it is about 5 years old. Whats wrong, cost to fix, is it worth fixing


Hi,

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.

The dryer is not heating and the unit has had this problem before and possibly the pilot unit was replaced. Is there a easy fix to this?

I have a Neptune Gas Dryer that stopped heating....but still goes, is it worth fixing?


If it's only a few years old, it would be much cheaper to fix than to replace the unit. Chances are it only needs a new igniter and you'll be saving lots of hard earned dough fixing it. Easy things to check on your own include: Clean your filter. Clean out the vent behind the dryer. Clean out the vent outside at the vent cap. Turn on the dryer and see if the igniter glows orange. If it doesn't, it may just be broken and need replaced. Good luck.

Gas kenmore dryer


It could be a couple of things, but I would start with the flame sensor. Different models work differently.

Kenmore series 80 gas dryer will not heat up


Hi. this dryer has a set of coils that sit on top of the actual gas valve assembly. these coils activate the main and secondary gas valves and if the coil assembly is malfunctioning or, the wires and clips are corroded, the coils will not activate the gas valves to open and close. this malfunction will affect the heating process within this dryer unit.

I recommend inspecting the dryer coil assembly. use a mulitimeter to test for Resistance. you should get a reading of some type of current flow through the wires and, if this is the case, the coils are bad and they will need to be replaced.

This test is actually not needed. the non existing heat is a red flag on its own and, it greatly confirms a major failure within the coil assembly. replacing the coils will fix your dryer.

PLease rate and god bless:)

Roeper Gas Dryer not heating


 If your unit has a standing pilot, is the pilot lit?  If not, push the Basso control button and light it according to the instruction sticker.
Next, the main thing you should suspect is the capillary tube.  This thin tube runs from a hollow bolt on the gas control to the gas burner. If defective, it will not allow the unit to light off further.  Remove the tube, take it to the hardware store and get a replacement and install.  If these two items don't fix the unit, get professional help.
