Do you have the required 240 volts input? then check your input neutral power connection for continuity throughout the unit in suspect,
then start checking the "hi-Limit" switch, cycling switch, the heating element

I can understand how important it is to have your dryer working properly. However, without the model number, I can only provide some general information on the issue. There are several components that can cause a dryer to stop heating. These depend on the source of power that the dryer uses. If the dryer is electric the problem could be caused by a failed thermal fuse, hi limit thermostat, control thermostat, thermal cut-off, or heating element. This could also be cause by a blown household breaker (there are two for this type of dryer, and one can blow or pop without the other one), or a failed timer. Some of these will also cause a gas dryer to stop heating, such as the thermostats, the thermal fuse and the thermal cut-off depending on your model. However, there is also the ignitor, the burner, the safety valve, or the coils that can cause it as well. In order to determine which part is causing the problem you will need to test the different components. If you could reply with your model number and any additional details about this, I can then provide a more detailed answer.

Dryer not heating


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...

Whirl pool gas dryer mod ggw 925opw3 will not heat up and dry sometimes at start up it get hot but only for about five min then you can feel cool air stat to com out the outside vent???/

It sounds like you could have one or more issues here. please be advised that only a gas technician should work on gas units. There are solenoid coils that are used in gas model dryers they energize the gas valves allowing gas to flow through to the element igniting it. if one or both of these are faulty you will experience a on and off heat problem. part numbers for the solenoids are 694540 and 694539. another possible problem is that you cycling thermostat located on the blower housing is faulty which gauges the temperature of the air coming from the gas flames. If this is faulty it will not receive the correct temperature reading, therefore not calling for any.part number for the cycling thermostat is 8573028.hope this helps

No heat in my gas dryer

Check your thermostat. Put a meter on it, if it has no continuity, it's open (blown). They are not resettable.
