Question about Dryers
In the last week my gas dryer which is pretty old no longer gets hot inside, runs but doesnt dry clothes. Now before i could look into it my girlfriend got a gas dryer off her friends parents which is alot newer than what we had (they said it works fine they just bought brand new electric models)so i figured ill just hook it up and we'll be good to go, guess what dryer runs but no heat they are both doing the same thing. I turn them on watch them start to glow but then glowing goes out and nothing happens dryer doesnt get hot. Is it something i'm doing wrong or just a coincidence they both have same problem. Only worried about newer model please help.
It sounds like the gas supply is not giving you any gas, as both have the exact same symptoms. You can see the glow coil getting red hot, then the safety shuts off after a it gets no gas. If you feel confident, shut off the valve in back coming from the wall, unscrew the line where it connects to the dryer. Turn the valve back on slowly, there should be gas pressure blow out of the line.
