First, check the ignitor and see if it is working. It should glow visibly if it is working. If the ignitor is working, but the burner won't light, the most likely cause are the gas valve coils. These electrical coils are located right above the gas valves. When energized, these solenoids open the gas valves and permit the burner to light. If defective, they don't permit the gas valves to open. Due to the difficulty in testing these solenoids, it is recommended that both (all) be replaced at once if any are suspected of being faulty. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Dryer runs, can see burner is firing but heat setting seems stuck on ;Delicate cycle. Taking 3 hours to dry a load of towels.


gas coil condensors may not be working properly as they set the gas pressure needed to keep flame going hot. can check them with a multi meter however if flames stays on you may want to check the venting system first u might be surprised bad venting can slow down drying. check in machine and at exhaust to home. Again Each time you see the glow bar igniter come on it should ignite the gas burner. If you find the glow bar igniter glowing red for a short time and then fading off without any burner ignition would indicate weak solenoid coils. The coils are mounted on top of the gas valve and they both will need to be removed and replaced. In order to access the solenoid coils will require removing the lint filter, removing the two screws which was hidden by the lint filter and raising the top and removing the front panel.

I have whirlpool duet wed9200sq. The dryer seems to be working fine other than the drum will not turn. It heats fine and the drum will turn by hand, the belt is fine, no warning codes or other problems.


The drum and belt may be fine but the motor may not be. Since you seem to have access to the drum and belt, you can check to see whether the motor starts. Also check to see whether the belt and tensioner device are working OK

Gas dryer works, but does not heat


Hello there:
here is a discriptive way of trouble shooting the dryer and it lists the common components that will normally fail if the element has not failed first
Gas Dryer Diagnosticsgasdryerguts.gifThis picture shows the main parts of a gas dryer's burner systemthat can fail. Understanding each component and it's failure mode canreally help diagnose a problem with a gas dryer.
Ignitor failure: The drum turns but the igniter doesn't glow, thereis no clacking sound as the gas valves open and there is no flameignition sound.
Radiant Sensor failure: The drum turns but the igniter doesn't glow,there is no clacking sound as the gas valves open and there is no flameignition sound.
Gas Valve Solenoid failure: The drum turns and the igniter glows andgets turned off but there is no clacking sound as the gas valves openand there is no flame ignition sound.
And another component failure to be aware of, but that's not shown here, is the operating thermostat:
Operating Thermostat failure: The drum turns but the igniter doesn'tglow, the gas valves don't open (there is no clacking sound) and thereis no flame ignition sound.
And here's a picture of other components to ohm out if you're getting no heating at all:

Problems with DTXpress III special bass drum pad


If you are comfortable with working on it and the warrantee is up try taking the pad apart to see if the piezo element has come loose from its mounting or if the solder joint is loose. If that isn't the problem save your settings and initialize the set according to the instructions in your manual.

Tumbler spins, heat won't go on, timer won't work


It is your operating thermostat. It controls the heat and runs the timer down.

Kenmore 90 electric dryer drum does not turn


Yes it should turn by hand and may be easier one direction than the other. It could be as simple as something stuck in the blower preventing the fan from turning. This also stops the motor from turning. Worst case is a froze bearing on the motor but I would pull the fan cover off and see what is in there.

Let me know what you find as I have found some very interesting things in the fan over the years....
