My drier is igniting after the start button is pressed but the flame only stays on for a very short time and shuts off. It seems that the dryer never reaches desired temp. Clothes do not dry.


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.


check out this electric no heat tip...

I have a gas dryer that the igniter plug glows, but does not light the gas. One time when I had the front panel off the gas ignited and the dryer heated, but only burned for a minute then shut off. Now I...


with front off it will short cycle. If ignitor glows and then goes out without lighting, you have bad burner coils. The 2 black round things on burner assembly. Unplug unit then unplug coils and remove bracket with 2 screws. install coils and test.

Burner lights 5-10 seconds shuts down. Good air flow. Gas smell at times out vent.


The burner will shut off for various reasons.

First, there is a sensor right at the burner flame. If the sensor does not indicate flame the gas is shut off to avoid filling your house with gas. It is usually a short metal rod. Oftentimes cleaning it will get it working again. Or the signal from the sensor isn't getting back to the controller, so check for loose connections.

This page explains it well.
http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/dryer/gdryer/check/flamesensor.php

There are some other sensors that will shut the heat down. A temp sensor where the hot air leaves the dryer drum. This is to keep from overheating the clothes and lighting them on fire. If this sensor is bad, or the wiring to it is not getting that signal back to the controller, the dryer will shut the burner down. Although 10-15 seconds is pretty short, this is a possibility. Try different heat settings to see if you get the same result. If it only happens on one heat setting you most likely have a bad temp sensor.

http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/dryer/gdryer/check/thermostat.php

Another possibility is that the gas valve (solenoid) is getting near the end of its life and can't stay open long. This is not likely, but still possible since the burner does light.

http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/dryer/gdryer/check/gascoil.php

Next possibility is that the gas line is partially plugged. When the burner fires the gas pressure drops rapidly. When the burner goes out the gas sneaking past the obstruction raises the pressure back up.

Final possibility is a bad controller.

I have a kenmore 80 series gas dryer and the gas line to it was recently turned off temporarily and now it won't get gas to heat up now that it is back on. Is there something wrong w/ the pilot mechanism??...


When gas is shut off, even for a short period of time, air enters the gas line and must be purged before the pilot will light.

Hold down the pilot light button longer than you think you should have to, then wait about five minutes to clear any gas that might have escaped then try again to relight the pilot. You may need to do this two or three times in five minute intervals.

Hope this was helpful.

When I start the dryer in either auto or timer mode the burner starts and the heat comes on. It will run for awhile with heat and then the burner will shut off. The dryer continues to spin but no heat is...


With the limited information you gave I will assume this is a gas dryer that the flame starts for a minute or so and then shuts off. This problem is going to be your safety valve coils...basically they get old and over time of heating then cooling develop a short when they heat up...It may appear the gas lights to start but then goes out until the safety valve coils cool back down. Here is a picture of the coils 57d5263.jpgThis The coils are mounted to the gas safety valve, This should solve your problem. Hope this helps, Please feel free to comment again if you have any further questions or concerns. Good Luck! Mike

Dryer does not heat up


First thing to check is the ignitor underneath the drum. (You have to open the panel to see it)  It should glow shortly after the dryer starts, then the flame starts and the ignitor shuts off.  If the ignitor is glowing but the gas does not light then the gas valve coils may have to be replaced.  If the gas ignites but does not stay on either the flame sensor or the coils are at fault.
