Question about Dryers

Gas dryer not heating.

I have an older Kenmore gas dryer. It was working fine but today it is not heating. The gas is turned on and the drum turns but I don't hear the igniter clicking to ignite the gas.

Kenmore electric dryer 8662100 drum turns, no heat

you have probably lost one leg of your power supply feed 120volts+120volts=240volts,your motor will operate on 120volts, but the element won't,also if you have 240volts the neutral wire to the element can burn off w/heat and age

Kenmore gas dryer that turns but does not heat up

No heat at all? does the top of the machine heat up, but not the drum? could be your drum seal is damaged or slipped off.
If the firebox doesn't light up, could be your igniter, the unit's safety switch, thermocouple, or regulator; Your Gas Company may provide a service that would check it for you... some do.

Kenmore gas dryer runs but not heating

Try replacing the valve coils first, then the valve if the prior doesn't work. If there is a buzzing noise, I believe it's more likely the valve. I'm replacing both on mine to be sure.
